Legoland Florida Announces Water Park

Only six weeks have gone by since Legoland Florida opened to the public, and the park already has expansion on their mind.  The property has formally announced the addition of the Legoland Water Park, to be opened next to the theme park in Summer 2012.

The park will feature many attractions, including water park staples such as a lazy river, tube and body slides, and an interactive play structure.

“We’re very excited to share plans for this amazing new attraction,” said Legoland Florida General Manager Adrian Jones.  “True to our mission, the water park attraction has been designed for families with children ages 2 to 12 and will add hours of water play to an already full day and move Legoland Florida into a multi-day experience for vacationers."

Attractions at the park will include the Lego Wave Pool, with waves sized for families, the Twin Chasers, an intertwining pair of tube slides stretching 375 feet, and Splash Out, the tallest slides at the park which offer three different ways down the 60 foot tower into a pool below.

The Joker Soaker features a 300 gallon bucket that tips its contents onto the crowd below, in addition to tons of water gags and other play structures.  A unique feature is the Build-A-Raft River, where families can design their own Lego vessel then set sail around the 1,000 foot course.

For little ones, the Duplo Splash Safari will feature small slides and large interactive Duplo creatures.  Much like at Legoland California, the water park will be an add-on to a day's regular admission ticket when the park opens.
