Expedition Theme Park
Published on Feb 2, 2018
Join the Expedition as we take a stop on Expedition Extinct at Florida’s First Theme Park Cypress Gardens, now known as Legoland Florida.

Explore the rich history of the park and its founder Richard Pope Sr, who has had influences all over the Florida tourism scene including the 1964/65 worlds fair with Walt Disney.

Walt Disney World had a huge impact on the park over its lifetime and it could be said that it runs the other way around also.
