Legoland to hire one thousand

For October debut, set to hire for June

Located in Winter Haven, Legoland is expected to hire some 1,000 people for its theme park.

To date, some 75 cast members have been hired for the soft opening.

Last year, Merlin announced that it was investing some $100 million on the transformation of the old Cypress Gardens. Most of the former theme park is being demolished in preparation for the Legoland's award-winning theme park for children.

Cypress Gardens, initially opened in 1936, renown for it's beautiful Southern Belles and enchanted botanical gardens, was given a makeover including pink-knuckled roller coasters, and a mediieval-themed segment entitled castle Hill indoor-outdoor roller-coaster.

With roller coasters, water park, interactive games, guests will have access to over 50 rides for children ages 2-12 years,

Famous for it's blocked scenes, for the first-time-ever, will debut portrayales including Bok Tower of Polk County, antebellum mansions of the Panhandle, Kennedy Space Center, Daytona International Speedway, and Malory Square from Key West.

Fans of the old Cypress Gardens will recognize some of the old infrastructure including the Swamp Thing, Triple Hurricane, and the water-stunt show that helped keep the cost down for the new theme-park.

Some travel agencies will begin selling tickets to Legoland Florida for it's grand opening.

Hiring will ramp up for positions with park operations now that a senior leadership staff has been picked according to park officials on Friday.

Training for the various positions, will begin in June said Legoland's spokeswoman Jackie Wallace.

Announced positions will be for ride maintenance, admissions, and back office workers. Pay and benefits will be competitive with other area theme parks in Orlando.
