WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (WESH) -- Legoland Florida announced a major park expansion on Tuesday.

Park executives said the "World of Chima" presented by Cartoon Network expansion will open in the summer.

The area is based on Lego's product line, Legends of Chima, which tells the story of tribes of animal warriors in a mystical land battling over a powerful energy source known as CHI.

"The World of Chima" at Legoland will make the first time a theme park has undergone a major expansion at the same time a new brand and product line are rolled out.

The expansion will center on a highly interactive water ride, the Quest for CHI. Other elements include the Speedorz Arena, where guests can build ripcord powered vehicle models out of Lego bricks and compete against each other and a new 4D movie.

Since opening in October 2011, the location has added hotels, a Star Wars-themed area and a water park.

Legoland Florida is based on the building-block toys and has rides and attractions geared toward ages 2 to 12. The Winter Haven location is one of five Lego-based theme parks in the world, and the company's largest.
