Central Florida's newest amusement park, Legoland Florida, officially opened its bricked doors on Saturday on the former site of Cypress Gardens. One of the main attractions includes massive displays of iconic skylines rebuilt with Legos, and obviously Legoland Florida's has an entire section devoted to Miami. Everything from the Miami Tower to that dude who likes to rollerblades in the buff got the Lego treatment.

Obviously, Ocean Drive takes center stage, but the exhibit recreates less world-famous locales as well.
Here's Lego Calle Ocho complete with a recreation of Cafe Versailles.
In true Little Havana fashion, that does appear to be a woman surrounded by her pet chickens.
Kudos for the inclusion of the Atlantic Condominium.
Even Legos get sun burnt.
A sideview into downtown. Unfortunately we can't find any closeup pictures of the Bacardi Building. A view from the other side of downtown can be seen here.

The dude doing a straddle on what we assume are rollerblades? He is supposed to be wearing a tiny lil' Lego mankini? Or do we have a wheeled Lego flasher scooting around South Beach?
All in all, a good representation of Miami. Though, two of these buildings seem like random inclusions, and we're a little surprised they left out the Freedom Tower.
Legoland is of course now open to the public, and the park also features recreations of other Florida landmarks, including the State Capitol complete with a bald governor standing out front:
