No Legoland Florida plans (yet)
Rumors of a Legoland Florida being built in the near future have been denied by the chain's operator. Merlin Entertainments Group, Legoland's British-based parent company says they have been surveying grounds in several key areas (including Florida) but have not finalized any plans.
Sally Ann Wilkinson, spokesperson for Merlin, told The Orlando Sentinel: "This is pure speculation!" Wilkinson says the United States is a key market for the entertainment group and they are considering expanding their properties—Madame Tussauds and Sea Life included—in The States.
"To this end we are assessing the potential of several key areas, including Florida, and this often includes us undertaking consumer research. However, we have no specific plans as yet for the state."
However, as Screamscape notes, the theme park operator couldn't have helped but notice the strong level of interest generated in Florida and other parts of the U.S. at the mention of a Legoland Florida. This will surely play a large role in the inevitable decision of where to build the second U.S. Legoland.
