Park News - (7/22/17) LEGOLAND Florida has named Rex Jackson as the park's new General Manager, rising up from his previous role at the park as VP of Marketing & Sales. He takes the place of Adrian Jones. I believe I'm not sure if Jones is staying on as the Divisional Director for the LEGOLAND Florida Resort, and just passing on his GM duties to Jackson or if he is moving on to another position.

Early 2017 - LEGO Ninjago World / Ninjago The Ride - (1/18/17) Good news for Legoland Florida fans as the new Ninjago dark ride attraction and surrounding area has opened to the public. You can catch some footage from the grand opening of the attraction shot by Midway Mayhem just below, as well as footage showing off the unique interactive nature of the dark ride that allows riders to combat the forces of evil with a series of hand motions over sensors placed in the ride vehicle. Different hand motions will put different mystical weapons to use.

(3/16/16) In 2017 Legoland Florida will add it's own version of the new Ninjago dark ride that will soon be opening at the California and Billiund parks. This dark ride will use a special "gesture" based system to allow the riders to interact (shoot fireballs, lightning, ice and shockwaves) at projection screens along the course of the dark ride.
In addition to the dark ride, there will be an entire small land to go with it themed to the Lego Ninjago universe that will include several outdoor interactive experiences for guests to test their physical skills of balance and agility before taking on the ride.
Spring 2017 - LEGOLAND Beach Retreat - (4/10/17) Some fun drone-cam flyover footage of the new LEGOLAND Florida Beach Retreat resort were sent in to Screamscape by the park. The footage is kind of surreal, seeing these life-sized giant buildings that appear to be made from giant LEGO bricks, basking in the Florida sun. Check it out below!

Along with a cool looking Lego beach / surfer theme, the hotel will have a themed pool, sandy play area and a buffet style restaurant.
