Legoland California Releases Initial Concept Art for New Water Park

Back in September the Legoland California Resort announced a major water park addition for next year, themed to the Legends of Chima brand.  At that time there was no concept art for the addition available, but now the park has released our first look at the expansion:

Above is a drawing of the Lion Temple Wave Pool, a central part of the new area at the Legoland California Resort.  Visitors can enter through a giant lion archway, behind which is an impressive 40 foot tall floating Mount Cavora.  Similar thematic elements were utilized in Legoland Florida's Chima-themed expansion this year, and no doubt they will look equally great in this setting.  The Lion Temple Wave Pool is being designed with smaller children in mind, not to include giant waves found in a typical wave pool.

The floating Mount Cavora will also dumb 400 gallons of water per minute into the pool below, and have and animal from each of the eight Chima tribes carved into its surface.

Other previously announced additions in the Legends of Chima Water Park include Cragger's Swamp, a "hands-on water play area," Build-A-Boat, where children can build boats and learn about water currents, and the Wolves' Cantina, a food located themed to the wolf tribe.
