Name: Nigel McShine-Jones (nickname Choonz) 

Who do you work for? LEGOLAND Florida

What’s been the highlight of the year  (2012) for your company? Opening! We are Florida’s newest Theme Park. We will be celebrating our 1st birthday in October.

What can we expect from your company in 2013? We have a major new expansion of a whole new section of the park. Watch this space for more new details.

Jamie: Nigel was referring to this.

Favourite Theme Park?: LEGOLAND Florida of course! However I do love Discovery Cove.

Favourite Theme Park ride and why?: Well I’m a little too old (and big!) for the rides at LEGOLAND Florida so I’d have to say Spider Man at Universal. The 4d experience and graphics are amazing and also because I loved Spider-Man as a kid.

Favourite Water Park and why?: I actually haven’t been to many water parks, so I’ll pass on this one.

Best Theme Park food?: It has to be our Granny Apple Fries at LEGOLAND Florida. Granny Smith apples chopped into fries dipped in a special coating, flash fried and served a with a big dollop of cream. Absolutely delicious and also one of your five a day! oh and I do also have to mention Doc Brown’s Chicken at Universal Studios Hollywood. Better than finger lickin’!

Best Theme Park tip?: If you’re visiting LEGOLAND Florida bring along your least favourite mini figure and you can trade it for your favourite one, if you spot a member of staff wearing it on their badge in the park. If you ask politely, they have to say yes!

Best souvenir you’ve ever got from a park?: LEGO Technic Monster Truck. I’m a born again LEGO addict.

Longest you’ve queued for a ride?: 60 minutes! It was worth it though.

If you could make your own ride, what would it be?: A roller coaster that doesn’t frighten the bejesus out of me!

What’s it like working with Really like working with these guys and I look forward to working with them even more closely in the future.

A big thank you to Choonz for taking time out of his busy schedule to speak to us….
