In this age of nuts I would quit the police department and tell people to save themselves. No reason these cops should die

This needs to stop...we can feel sorry all we want but untill the punishment is death for killing a police officer this is going to continue. These are young men with familys and friends who risk their lives EVERYDAY FOR US. They deserve more than this...😡

RIP May God wrap his arms around your family and friends and my they please feel peace.

I will cling to the old rugged cross and exchange it someday for a crown. Deputy Taylor Lindsey you now have your crown. Thank you for your unselfish service to protect us one and all. May the lord wrap your family and friends in his grace and mercy during this part of life’s journey. Rest In Peace Sir.

So sad. My Son is a police officer . I fear this everyday. May his famimy find comfort in this sad time.

This makes at least four officers killed in the past week because the good officers have been scared out of using their guns. They carry guns to protect themselves from this. Yet, most deputies are scared to use them because they’ll be persecuted by the same public they protect and serve. I pray for peace for their families.

Horrible , horrendous and cowardly act. the country should be outraged that this keeps happening in this country!!!

Thank you for your service. Rest in peace! Thoughts and prayers for the family ,friend and the Gilchrist police department.

RIP SGT. RAMÍREZ. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE. PRAYERS ARE WITH THE FAMILY, COLLEAGUES AND THE COMMUNITY THAT SUPPORT YOU.

Prayers up. Just horrific. My young twin nephews are state troopers. It's frightening. I pray for them every day.

So much evil in this world...praying for this young man's family...Rest in Peace Sir!

RIP prayers for the family

May He Forever Rest in Eternal Peace and May His Spirit Soar High Above in Heaven. For He has Heroically and Honorably completed his Tour of Duty. My Thoughts and Prayers are with His Family and Friends. May God Bless them ALL!

Legoland is amazing. They really did a fabulous job in making indoor play spaces to beat the heat and take a break with your little ones. The park is immaculate and staff always incredible. Hands down one of the best theme parks geared towards younger kids yet still exciting enough for grownups. <3

Love this place. An awesome place to be. My son loves it there. Friendly staff that makes this place more enjoyable.

Legoland is awesome!! Baby care facility and indoor playroom was a huge help❤

Where are the quiet rooms located? I’ve been there a few times recently with my child on the spectrum and have never seen these rooms. I haven’t seen any signs for them or anything. 😞

Thank you Legoland 👍🏻 #proudautismmom

This is truly the best park for kids and adults. My oldest has autism and this has always been his favorite place. The staff are so friendly and understanding. Every area in the park offers something for all ages. Best Place hands down!

Christine Hines Waterman you guys would love Legoland. They have so many features that you guys would enjoy!

So I've been back and forth 😁😂😁. While it did take me several attempts to reach customer service the resolution worked for our family. I do love the park, almost as much as my son !! Looking forward to a great vacation and hitting the Water Park !!

Can you tell me more about the building activities and more please??!!

I'll see you guys have a Groupon for $99 and I'm very disappointed that I am being charged $600 for one night in August that's insane!!!

What type of views do the rooms have

Discrimination against monsters!

The price gouging is shameful.... $600 a night!? Now I see it's changed to $150. So unfair! I booked a week ago!

Yep, no monsters😃

My son slept by himself for the first time in his little life... all because Legoland thinks of every detail for the kiddos 💜 we love you Legoland hotel 💜

Is there any deals going on? We're looking to come in July and stay at the Beach Retreat.

We will be there in exactly one month! My son is super excited!

We are going to the beach retreat this Thursday. We are SO excited!

My son kept looking for the pirate that he saw roaming the halls on the tv🤣

Loved this when we stayed there 2 weeks ago!

Just booked Beach Retreat for June !

We check in next Monday! So excited!!!!

Cute idea 😍

Awesome news !!

Is this good ?

Fantastic. Nice to see that Florida's FWC was involved. We don't always see good news about FWC, but this along with the successful rehab & release of a Florida Panther & her cubs recently, is excellent.

don't know if this helps anyone but go into like wal mart buy one of the little lego kits in the plastic bags usually 4 or 5 dollars on the back is a coupon for each paying adult one child 12 and under gets in free...does not include the water park which is like an extra 21 dollars (worth it fun water park) just make sure coupon is not expired...worker at LL gave me this helpful hint...i bought mine for my 2 grandsons at LL.. I have an awesomer pass (thats so worth it,if you live near...)

Came all the way from Montreal Canada to bring my kids here on Tuesday April 10th and all the rides where closed because there was rain lightning and thunder. There should be some sort of compensation for days like this.

So we can’t purchase and use in August?

If anyone’s interested I have 2 adult 2 child tickets for sale...only asking the $200 I paid..I bought them when they were bogo but can no longer use them. They expire 1/19/2019 with no blackout dates.

We were so excited to see Daniel pop up in this video! He was a terrific ranger for our first Florida everglades slough in January!

Daniel was very helpful to us at the information desk. He gave us good tips on where to go, told us about a great Wet Walk, and we even swapped stories about being Student Conservation Association alums. He is clearly committed to his job and loves what he does. Thank you!!

Let's round off the week with some gratitude! As the Everglades transitions from the dry season to the wet, the park looks back on those that helped pull us through some tough times following Hurricane Irma. Today we say thank you to our Alternative Winter Breakers from Central Michigan University whom you might have seen featured in one of our previous posts. CMU spent their time this past December helping lend a hand down in Flamingo! Bright smiles and even brighter attitudes!

Stay tuned for more action shots from our volunteer groups over the dry season! Our parks couldn't do without all of you! #volunteerappreciation
