LEGOLAND Florida is now open in Winter Haven, Florida, and at less than an hourâ€™s drive from Orlando, it offers another option for families who enjoy central Floridaâ€™s theme parks. The word â€œLegoâ€ comes from the Danish â€œplay well,â€ and families with young children can certainly play well at Legoland Florida. The parkâ€™s target audience is families with children ages 2-12, and younger children will indeed enjoy the rides, shows, and attractions in the park. I spent two days at Legoland Florida and still didnâ€™t get a chance to do everything, so thereâ€™s plenty to do in the park, and Legoland Florida does well at reaching its target market.

WonderWorks Orlando began as a Top Secret research laboratory on a remote island in the Bermuda Triangle. As legend has it, the worldâ€™s greatest scientists â€“ led by Professor Wonder â€“ were given the task of creating a man-made tornado and harnessing the POWER of it. During this experiment, something went awry and the power of the tornado was unleashed throughout the laboratory. This created a swirling vortex that was strong enough to rip the laboratory from its foundation. It was carried thousands of miles away and landed upside-down on the top of a brick warehouse in Orlando, Florida. Remarkably, all of the experiments remained intact and functional. When you enter the building, everything will be upside-down, so in order to participate in the fun, you must be inverted. Step inside the inversion tunnel and be turned right side up to begin your journey. Once you are properly aligned for your adventure, family fun awaits with more than 100 hands on exhibits.
