Legoland theme park has been closed since March 15, 2020 due to the Governor’s Covid-19 Coronavirus orders that prohibited theme park operation. Legoland has now received permission to re-open soon, provided that they follow State and CDC guidelines for safely opening.
The park will be limited to a maximum of 50% occupancy and says that they will adhere to strict physical distancing and sanitation guidelines. They will also require a temperature check of all park visitors.
The Winter Haven City Commission granted Legoland the opportunity to open soon after the General Manager provided the necessary opening plan to State and local officials.
In revealing that they would only be open to 50% capacity, they also revealed the park’s true capacity number. The park is limited to 6,000 guests per day under this plan, which means that it held a maximum of 12,000 per day under normal circumstances.
Legoland will also provide face masks for guests who do not bring them, so it sounds as though they will require face masks for entry. Park employees will also be required to wear masks.
Plastic shields are now placed at all checkout locations to prevent the spread of Covid-19 as well.
No guest will be allowed admission if they have a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher. They will also refuse entry to the entire group of people who were traveling with that guest. Be sure to take your own temperature before departing.
Legoland hotel will re-open along with the park and will adhere to the same guidelines as the park. There will be ample signage available to communicate to guests the desired guidelines.
Restaurants will no longer offer self-service buffets or salad bars. Additionally soda fountains and condiment stations will be closed.
The one area that may concern some guest is the “brick pits” that are children’s play areas where kids can build their own creation. The park has stated the bricks will be cleaned “frequently.”
Legoland will officially open to the public on June 1, 2020.
