Mias Riding Adventure is a daring new attraction, that we feel is the perfect addition to expand our park offering, said Adrian Jones, General Manager, LEGOLAND Florida Resort. Heartlake City, when combined with a stay in a LEGO Friends themed room or suite, will allow guests to further immerse themselves in the world of LEGO Friends.
