Legoland Florida was briefly on lockdown Wednesday after a threatening message was found inside a bathroom at the theme park, according to Winter Haven Police.

  • Legoland briefly placed on lockdown
  • Threatening message found inside bathroom
  • Law enforcement conducted full sweep, found nothing

A Legoland employee found a note with a “concerning message.” The note did not contain specific dates or times, police said.

Police and deputies from the Polk County Sheriff’s Office conducted a full sweep, but found nothing.

Park visitors and employees were not allowed to leave during the lockdown. Also, no one was allowed to enter the park during the sweep.

The threat was deemed not credible and the lockdown was lifted less than two hours later.

Legoland Florida resumed normal operations for the rest of the day.
