ORLANDO, Fla. — Some Florida theme parks will be debuting new attractions this week.

SeaWorld Orlando on Wednesday is opening a Sesame Street land, while down the interstate, Legoland Florida in Winter Haven is debuting an area based on "The Lego Movie" and its sequel.

Both additions to central Florida's theme park landscape are aimed at young families.

The 6-acre (2-hectare) Sesame Street land at SeaWorld Orlando is located where the kid-friendly Shamu's Happy Harbor used to be. It's an apt location given the Sesame Street land is the theme park's boldest step away from live killer whale shows.

SeaWorld decided to stop breeding orcas and phase out its world-famous killer whale performances, after public opinion turned against keeping orcas, dolphins and other animals in captivity for entertainment.
