Florida’s newest theme park – Legoland – doesn’t open until October 2011, but tickets are already on sale. Located at the old Cypress Gardens location in Orlando, Florida, Legoland is slashing $10 off the price of admission on a one-day pass now through December 31, 2010. The current prices are $65 for adults, $55 for children ages 3-12, $55 for ages 60 and older, and free for children 3 and under. All prices increase by $10 on January 1, 2011.
