Legoland California Water Park Update

Legoland California has sent out a nice update of their new water park, and at the same time has detailed the attractions to be found in the new area. The new $12 million area is expected to open on May 28th and is the first Legoland Water Park in the world.

Some of the new attractions include:

Orange Rush
, a family tube slide where up to four people can ride together down a 312-foot long curving track on an 11-foot in diameter half pipe.

Twin Chasers, two side-by-side enclosed red tube slides that stretch nearly 130 feet.

Splash Out, an open body slide that invites guests to slide 240 feet and “splash out” into the water below.

Joker Soaker, a fun interactive platform in the wade pool where kids can aim water cannons at each other as a LEGO jester model tells jokes and pours 350 gallons of water down upon them; a one-of-a-kind concept.

Build-A-Raft River, where kids customize their own raft made of soft LEGO bricks before floating down a lazy river and Kid Creek, a lazy river built with younger kids in mind.

DUPLO® Splash Safari, a water play area designed especially for toddlers with three small slides and interactive DUPLO creatures including an alligator, polar bear and an elephant.

The park also revealed some of the giant LEGO characters that will be found along the Build-a-Raft River. Each of the characters will have a splashy surprise for guests passing by. In all, there will be 22 LEGO models located inside the water park.

More information on the new water park can be found at the official website.
