Florida’s new Lego Hotel opens its doors with fire breathing dragons and pirate treasure hunts

A new themed hotel has opened its doors in Florida’s LegoLand but guests will have to cross the path of a fire-breathing dragon before even checking in.

Lego Hotel claims to be the ideal destination for both adults and children seeking holiday accommodation with a sense of adventure and boasts more than 150 rooms dedicated to the popular toy.

The toy giant’s newest venture is divided into four themes, Pirate, Kingdom, Adventure and Lego Friends, all of which will be familiar to long-term Lego fans who will be able to embark on scavenger hunts and compete in building competitions during their stay.

The exterior of Lego Hotel is speckled with colour and was designed to look as though it was indeed built by an inspired Lego fan with a good imagination.

The hotel’s bright rooms sleep five and each boast a king-sized bed with bunk beds in an adjoining room. The rooms each feature a locked chest and guests can embark on a treasure hunt throughout the hotel if they are keen to find the key. A complimentary Lego building class is also part of the hotel's package.

Lego Hotel guests also have priority to the nearby theme park and will have the opportunity to hop on the rides before other visitors even gain access to LegoLand.

To soak up the shining Florida sun, guests can take to the pool, littered with floating blocks of Lego to make sure they stay afloat.

If the level of excitement gets to be too much for the hotel’s adult guests, they can take to the Lego Sky Lounge to indulge themselves in a beverage or two to take the edge off.

Although newly opened, the hotel’s prices begin at €70 per adult and €62 for children over three.
