Notes

Cypress Gardens was famous for its beautiful gardens, Southern Belles in hoop skirts and their extraordinary water ski shows.

History

The park, which opened in 1936, closed in April 2003. According to its owners, it was a victim of the Post-9/11 tourism slumps. On 1/27/04, Florida Gov. Jeb Bush agreed to put the final piece of the puzzle together in bringing the park back. The park will now be owned and operated by Kent Buescher, owner of Wild Adventures. The park re-opened in the summer of 2004.

The park was purchased by Merlin Entertainments which made the announcement about opening a Legoland at the location in January 2010. Legoland opened October 15, 2011.
