Lego My Ford Explorer: Florida Theme Park To Feature Family SUV


Ford Explorer LEGOLAND

No, you can’t buy it, but the kids will love it anyway. What is it? It’s the Ford Explorer Legoland, a one-of-a-kind Explorer constructed from more than 380,000 Lego bricks.

The visually-arresting red Legoland Florida edition Explorer took more than 2,500 hours to create and will ultimately reside at the new 150-acre Legoland Florida theme park just outside Orlando. This marks Legoland's fifth theme park and the largest in the world.

The Ford Explorer Legoland edition made its first appearance at the Ford Chicago Assembly Plant, where the regular production Explorer is built, and marks the beginning of a long-term alliance between the Dearborn, Michigan automaker and the Legoland theme park in Florida.

Following its debut in the Windy City, the Ford Explorer Legoland will make its way to the Sunshine State onboard a trailer with see-through sides so motorists can see it.

Once it arrives in Florida, the Ford Explorer Legoland will be part of one of Legoland Florida’s feature attractions, the Ford Driving School for children. There are actually two driving schools: Divided by age, there’s a driving school for tykes ages three through five and one for kids ages six through twelve. Video instruction and safety tips precede driving electric vehicles on curbed roads with a maximum speed limit of 3 mph.

Intrigued? The new Legoland Florida theme park opens October 15 and caters to children from the age of two to twelve. Besides the Ford Driving School for children, there are more than 50 family-focused attractions, rides and shows. There’s even a historical botanical garden.

Of course, getting there with the kids in the family car can be a lot of fun, too – especially if you’re driving a Ford Explorer. In the meantime, check out the time-lapse video of the making of the Ford Explorer Legoland.
