Legoland sent some updated information regarding tomorrow night’s community preview event.
On Thursday, July 8, 2010 Legoland Florida is hosting a community open house to meet with area residents about Central Florida’s newest theme park. This open house-style event is intended to acquaint local residents with Legoland Florida and how it will impact Central Florida. Attendees will come face to face with amazing LEGO® models, view Park concepts, ask questions and hear about job opportunities. Managing Director of Legoland Parks John Jakobsen, General Manager of Legoland Development John Ussher, Sales & Marketing Director Kim Isemann and Human Resources Director Kim Clark will be on hand to answer questions.
During the event, guests will have the unique opportunity to help build a giant LEGO mural depicting the front entrance of Legoland Florida. When complete, the mural will be 9 feet wide and 5 feet tall created out of 35,000 LEGO bricks.
The event runs from 4pm to 7pm at:
Winter Haven Orange Dome
150 Cypress Gardens Blvd.
Winter Haven, FL 33880
Barring last minute problems at the day job, I should see you there.
Thursday the 7th from 4-7pm, Legoland Florida is holding an open house at the Orange Dome on Cypress Gardens Blvd in Winter Haven. This is a chance for community members to get a look at the plans for the new theme park that will occupy the former Cypress Gardens Adventure Park location. There will also be some Legoland Florida members on hand to answer questions.
More details coming next week.
I’m trying to bend my schedule to make it, but I’m also looking for someone who can take a few pictures and send me a report if I can’t make it. Any volunteers?
While having a kick-ass marketing team is no doubt going to be an important part of the success of Legoland Florida, I find it a bit funny that the first press release I receive from Legoland is one announcing the team that brings you press releases.
Let’s all welcome the first three members of the marketing team. Director of Sales and Marketing Kim Isemann, Manager of Sales Todd Andrus and Public Relations Representative Jackie Wallace are bringing their expertise from Central Florida attraction destinations to promote the family theme park opening fall 2011.

The Orlando Fun Spot locations don’t get a lot of respect even though they’re the area’s fourth largest attraction (when you add all the locations attendance together). That might change when the Kissimmee location adds a new coaster they just purchased from the former Cypress Gardens park.
Coaster preservationists, don’t get your hopes up. It’s just the Galaxy Spin, a Zamperla spinning Wild Mouse coaster. This was actually one of the coasters that it looked like Legoland might want to keep. Here’s hoping they still might keep one of the classic wooden coasters.
It’s not exactly the floodgates opening, but Legoland Florida has posted three new jobs to their website recently. Two will play a large behind the scenes role in shaping the park, and the other a literal role.
One of the first jobs they posted was for a Landscape Manager, now they’re hiring additional landscapers. If you live nearby this is your chance to work on some world famous gardens.
The other two jobs are management level and its crucial that Legoland gets the right people for these positions. The general manager and design manager are the people who will lead the design, construction, and operation of the park.
Obviously, they’re looking for people with experience. But they’re also going to want people with a plan for getting visitors to make the trip down from the Orlando area. Someone with experience at SeaWorld or Universal Orlando would be perfect, I think. As some sort of partnership with those parks will be important.
Any suggestions? Or are you planning to send in your resume yourself.
