Both North American Legoland Parks Celebrate New Attractions

Legoland California has opened their new water park expansion, known officially as the Lego Legends of Chima Water Park, presented by Cartoon Network to excited guests.

The highly anticipated addition builds on the resort's existing water area, bringing several new attractions along with it.  The 250,000 gallon Lion Temple Wave pool is sure to be a popular spot for families, along with the water play area known as Cragger's Swamp.  Smaller activities can also be found throughout the new grounds, including the Build-A-Boat river and the Speedorz Arena, both of which allow kids to build their own vehicles with Legos.

“Since LEGOLAND Water Park opened in 2010, our guests have been asking for more,” said Legoland California General Manager Peter Ronchetti. “This Chima Water Park has such incredible theming and so many awesome interactive features, I’m excited for our guests to experience it and expand their day here at the Resort.”

With the recently opened Legoland Hotel on property, and this new water park expansion, the resort is poised to see even more growth in the coming years.  The question is, what can they build next?

Across the country Legoland Florida has also opened a brand new attraction, named Duplo Valley.  The renovated area is dedicated to very small children, with larger than life animals and other farm themed attractions.

Duplo Valley is named after the Lego Duplo product line, which uses larger blocks for preschool kids.  The new area contains several new rides, including the Duplo Train seen above.  Parents are able to ride along with their kids, so they can experience the fun along with them.

Other additions include the Duplo Tractor ride, Duplo Splash & Play - a great area filled with all sorts of water features that is sure to keep kids happy for a long while.  The Duplo Barn, seen above, includes many play elements and features an enclosed air-conditioned setting.

“We couldn’t be more excited to officially open Duplo Valley,” said Legoland Florida General Manager Adrian Jones. “Our newest expansion gives toddlers (and parents) a completely new way to play, adding to our already fantastic lineup of more than 50 rides, shows and attractions here at Legoland Florida.”

The park has already announced that a Legoland Hotel will join the property in 2015, featuring 152 highly themed rooms and suites.
