Legoland first theme park to have own currency listed on exchange board

Legoland Florida Resort has made history all while making guests' experience more authentic.

The theme park announced Wednesday that it has entered a partnership with independent foreign exchange business Travelex to list its official currency, Legoland Dollars, on the company's exchange boards at dozens of locations.

The partnership makes Legoland Florida Resort the first theme park to have its official money listed on a currency exchange board.

"Everything at Legoland Florida Resort is created for kids, including the currency. By using Legoland Dollars with a playful design, it builds on the immersive experience for young guests," said Legoland Florida Resort general manager Adrian Jones in a statement. "Although we accept U.S. currency, only Legoland Dollars will get you an additional $39.25 in added value."

The exchange rate to the U.S. dollar is 1:1, but guests who exchange $50 will receive $50 in Legoland Dollars as well as other exclusive benefits, including free parking and an upgrade to the Legoland Water Park, among others.

Most importantly, possessing the unique currency will provide added convenience for guests, with Legoland Florida Resort's restaurants, concessions and shops accepting Legoland Dollars.

Keep in mind that Legoland Dollars — available for a limited time but through the 2015 summer season — can only be purchased with U.S. currency and the minimum exchange guests can make is $5. Legoland Dollars aren't redeemable for cash and are nonrefundable, states Travelex's official website.

Travelers can purchase Legoland Dollars at one of 55 different Travelex locations, including locations at Tampa International Airport, John F. Kennedy International Airport, LaGuardia Airport and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
