Balancing on a 5/8-inch wire, Wallenda will "walk the plank" using a custom balancing pole that features LEGOs.
Pirate Island is Legoland Florida’s third on-site hotel and the second one to be located next to the amusement park’s main entrance. The amusement park will also see an update to its pirate-themed water ski show and will celebrate pirates throughout 2020, dubbing it “The Year of the Pirate.”
Legoland Florida general manager Rex Jackson explained, “Pirates have a long history tied to the state of Florida." The 150-room, five-story Pirate Island hotel overlooks Lake Eloise and includes numerous Lego pirate touches such as in-room Lego treasure chests, character interactions, a miniature golf course and a free family-style breakfast. Some rooms will feature boat-shaped bunkbeds and lake views.
"Whether it’s interacting with life-size LEGO characters in the lobby, uncovering LEGO bounty at the end of an in-room treasure hunt or soaking up the sun in our heated pool," says Legoland Florida hotels director Kevin Carr, "Pirate Island will be the perfect place for families to make long-lasting memories."
The Pirate Island Hotel will officially open to the public on the day after the grand opening ceremony on Friday, April 17. Reservations are now available on Legoland's Florida’s website.
