WINTER HAVEN, Fla. - LEGOLAND Florida's new Water Park officially opens on Saturday, May 26 at 10 a.m.
The new water park attraction is a "park within the park" and is part of the overall LEGOLAND Florida experience. Guests may access the water park with a $12 per-person upgrade (only $3 upgrade for children under 3) to a single-day ticket.
Here's what visitors can experience inside:
LEGO Wave Pool - Families can catch a gentle wave or simply cool off in this perfectly sized wave pool where the waves are just big enough for all ages to enjoy.
Build-A-Raft River - Families can imagine, design and build a unique LEGO vessel and set afloat on a maiden voyage around the 1000-foot long lazy river, set amongst playful LEGO Friends, flowering vegetation and palm trees.
Twin Chasers - Friends ride tubes 375 feet down an intertwining pair of enclosed water slides before plunging into a refreshing pool below.
Splash Out - The thrill seekers of the family can ascend to the tallest point of the water park attraction and choose from one of three unique slides, then speed down a 60-foot drop and "splash out" into the water below.
Joker Soaker - A fun, interactive playground with various lengths, heights and types of slides that offer something different for every member of the family. Guests can wade in the surrounding pool and be surprised with a torrential spill from a 300-gallon bucket.
DUPLO Splash Safari - Toddlers will rule at this water play area with shorter slides and interactive, larger-than-life DUPLO creatures.
LEGOLAND Florida is located at One LEGOLAND Way in Winter Haven, just 45 minutes from downtown Tampa.
