LEGOLAND® FLORIDA DEBUTS ALL-NEW WATER PARK ATTRACTION JUST IN TIME FOR SUMMER

 

 

WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (May 26, 2012) – LEGOLAND® Florida, Central Florida’s newest theme park, opened its all-new water park attraction today, greeting thousands of bathing suit-clad guests eager to splash, slide and soak up some sun.

 

“This is an important day for us as we continue to grow our presence in Central Florida,” said LEGOLAND Florida General Manager Adrian Jones, who – clad in suit and tie – was unexpectedly soaked with three hundred gallons of water during opening ceremonies.

 

“With the debut of our new water park, LEGOLAND Florida is now easily a two-day experience,” he said, “which puts us well down the road toward our goal of becoming a multi-day resort destination.” 

 

A “park within a park,” the attraction includes Build-A-Raft River, where guests can build their own LEGO inner tubes and float down a 1,000-foot lazy river.  For the little ones, the DUPLO® Splash Safari is a toddler haven with perfectly sized slides a zero-depth wading pool.  Guests of all ages can play for hours at the Joker Soaker water playground, a riot of brightly colored ladders, levers, pumps and slides of every length and type.  And a 583,000-gallon, crystal-clear wave pool and five slippery-fast water slides will thrill families all day long. 

 

Admission to the water park requires a LEGOLAND Florida theme park ticket plus a $12 water park upgrade.  Guests may also purchase a 12-month Premium Annual Pass, which offers unlimited access to both parks, for just $179 for adults and $149 for children ages 3-12 and seniors. 

 

With the new attraction, LEGOLAND Florida has also added a new Beach-n-Brick Grille, an outdoor patio where hungry guests can dine on jerk chicken, mahi mahi and pulled pork sandwiches, as well as chicken fingers, hamburgers and hotdogs.  Every menu item is priced below $10, before tax, including combos that come with fries, salad or slaw and a 22-ounce drink.   

 

An on-site retail store sells swimsuits, towels, sunscreen and all manner of water gear.  Guests can store their belongings in lockers for $5 (small), $7 (large) and $12 (family) and towels are available for a daily fee of $3.
