Experiencing The LEGO Movie 4D A New Adventure At LEGOLAND Florida

LEGOLAND Florida The LEGO Movie 4D A New Adventure

The LEGO Movie 4D A New Adventure has arrived at LEGOLAND Florida Resort bringing a new attraction, new friends, and a new Celebration to the Park!

You can find The LEGO Movie 4D A New Adventure playing daily in the Wells Fargo 4D Theater.

The LEGO Movie 4D LEGOLAND Florida

This theatrical attraction is set after the events of the movie, the 12 ½-minute story finds the gang entangled in an Evil Secret Plot involving a mysterious theme park inspired by their adventures in “The LEGO Movie,” one that requires them to call on the Master Builder skills of a surprise ally to save the day.

The LEGO Movie 4D A New Adventure was directed by Rob Schrab, who is making his feature film directorial debut with The LEGO Movie Sequel, set to open May 18, 2018. When it came to designing the attraction, he said a strong story was critical to its success.

We only spotlight them for a fraction of the amount of time,” he said, “so it’s important to get to the fun as soon as possible. This is the first time Emmet, Wyldstyle and the gang meet since the film.”

While Elizabeth Banks (Wyldstyle), Nick Offerman (MetalBeard), Charlie Day (Benny) and Alison Brie (Unikitty) return to voice their characters from The LEGO Movie, Patton Oswalt now joins the gang as the Risky Business, brother of movie villain President Business, a new character created exclusively for the attraction.

The LEGO Movie 4D LEGOLAND Florida

The LEGO Movie 4D A New Adventure is an experience both you and your little ones will want to repeat!!!

To make things even better, after you see the movie you can meet with some of its stars! Zoe got to meet Emmet and Risky Business on the Red Carpet.

But now at LEGOLAND Florida you will also find Benny, MetalBeard, and Unikitty (YES UNIKITTY) meeting guests in the Park.

The LEGO Movie 4D A New Adventure

Starting Feburary 6th The LEGO Movie 4D Weekends begin inviting fans to celebrate the new adventure of Emmet and his friends during an all-new event held exclusively at LEGOLAND Florida Resort every Saturday and Sunday in February.

Guests will enjoy extended park hours, LEGO building opportunities, hands-on activities built just for kids, a passport adventure with stops throughout the park and meet-and-greet opportunities with the characters from The LEGO Movie 4D A New Adventure, including some never seen before in a LEGOLAND theme park.

To conclude the fun each evening will end with an amazing fireworks display over picturesque Lake Eloise, and the best part is that all activities and entertainment are included with park admission.

If you loved The LEGO Movie (and really who didn’t?), you’re going to want to see The LEGO Movie 4D A New Adventure and be a part of the The LEGO Movie 4D Adventure!
