Despite rising ticket prices at other major Central Florida attractions, LEGOLAND® Florida announced on July 16, 2012 that it will keep its prices steady through the summer at $75 for adults and $65 for children under 12. With those prices, a family of four visiting the park will save between $40 and $56 a day compared to a visit to a competing park, such as Universal Orlando or the Walt Disney World Resort.
“The comparisons are important, especially in today’s economy,” said LEGOLAND Florida Director of Sales & Marketing Kim Isemann. “Families are looking for great experiences at prices they can afford. A day at LEGOLAND Florida is one of the highest values in our industry.”
Isemann suggests families compare other incremental costs too, such as dining and parking. At LEGOLAND Florida, all menu items – from mahi-mahi sandwiches to chicken Caesar salads – are priced no higher than $11. Parking is also more affordable, at $12 per car, $6 for motorcycles. Other parks charge $14 for both cars and motorcycles.
For those looking to visit LEGOLAND Florida and the all new water park attraction, which opened in May and features water slides, a wave pool, several playground areas and a lazy river called Build-A-Raft, can add that to their regular admission for only an additional $12 a day.
The water park is guarded by “model citizens,” and may soon include some of the lifeguards formerly employed by the city of Hallandale Beach, FL.
While ticket price comparisons are on single-day, full-price admissions, there are many discount and combination-ticket offers in the marketplace as well:
– Florida Residents save $20 on a Premium Pass, with unlimited admission to the theme park and water park, as well as free parking, plus food and merchandise discounts, through July 31.
– Guests save $10 off single-day combo tickets for the park and water park by purchasing online through October 28.
The Local Getaways Examiner will be making a trip to visit LEGOLAND® Florida in a few weeks, and looks forward to sharing some of his experiences with the readers of pingroof.com.
