Is Everything Awesome at New Lego Hotel?

Headache-inducing fun in Florida


Think Florida is all about Disney? Think again. The new Legoland Resort Hotel is finally throwing open its doors to building block fanatics.

Don't worry about it toppling. The attraction in Winter Haven, partway between Orlando and Tampa, is housed near the Legoland theme park. And while it does feature a whole lot of blocks, the colourful, five-storey hotel follows traditional building methods based on the Legoland Resort Hotel in Windsor, England.

The 152 rooms are themed on popular Lego motifs, such as adventure, pirate, kingdom and Lego Friends. There's a green dragon looming large at the entrance. Some 5,000 mini figures line the walls, and there are plenty of Lego pits for hardcore building aficionados. Many rooms have bunks and scavenger hunts for the kiddos. And kids can learn from the greats during Master Model Builder sessions.

Best be quick if you're planning a surprise getaway for your building nut. The rooms, priced from $219, are already booking up months in advance.

So if you're sick to death of Elsa and Co., Legoland may be just the destination you need. But be warned, there is no escape from primary-coloured bricks. Even in the pool...

There's also a disco going on in the elevators, which - like the song from the movie - may not be so awesome after a while.

Which would you rather: a stay in the Potter hotel or the Lego resort?
