LEGOLAND Florida’s Child Ambassadors Christen “The World of Chima” Attraction Boats; Help Gear up for Grand Opening

WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (June, 17, 2013) – LEGOLAND® Florida’s Buddy’s Brick Bunch child ambassadors christened Sunday, June 16, the main component of The World of Chima water ride. The celebration took place as the first watercraft vehicle was introduced into the immersive family attraction, The Quest for CHI. The Quest for CHI will be one of three new attractions at LEGOLAND Florida when The LEGO® World of Chima (pronounced Chee-mah) presented by Cartoon Network grand opens July 3.

 

In addition to participating in the christening, the ambassadors were also given a hands-on educational tour of the construction site; they sprayed concrete on the entrance structure helping give shape to the engineered stone gateway, then painted the stone-look surface.
