Legoland Florida released this statement regarding the addition of a Star Wars Miniland which we recently reported on as simply a rumor.
WINTER HAVEN (AP) - Legoland Florida says it will expand to add an interactive "Star Wars"-themed area in November.
The central Florida theme park made the announcement Thursday.
Star Wars Miniland will include Lego scenes from six-movie series of films as well as the animated "Clone Wars" television series.
The section will follow a chronological path through the "Star Wars" timeline. Some of the 2,000 Lego models will be more than 6 feet high. Visitors will be able to activate animations throughout the scenes using interactive buttons.
Legoland Florida is based on the building-block toys and has rides and attractions geared toward ages 2 to 12.
Since opening in October 2011, the park has added a water park and hotels.
This news is sure to increase attendance as humans and aliens alike travel from light-years away to check out this new and way over due section of the park.
