Lego building blocks are bright red, yellow and green, but so far Legoland Florida is mostly a sandy brown. That's about to change, said Adrian Jones, the theme park's general manager, at the construction site Wednesday. The infrastructure has been finished, Jones said, and "we are actually starting to really build things and put in rides and redo the buildings." The 150-acre resort will feature attractions designed primarily for children age 12 and younger, with mild roller coasters, car and boat attractions, Lego-building areas, a ski stunt show and small-scale versions of cities made of Lego blocks. Scheduled to open in October, the $150-million Legoland is being built where Cypress Gardens operated until 2009.
