Legoland Florida announced details of its planned waterpark Tuesday, saying the park will include an build-your-own raft ride and an interactive water playground.
The park is set to open "in time for summer 2012." It will include a number of attractions currently featured at the Legoland water park in California, including a Build-A-Raft lazy river, Twin Chasers tube ride, and the Duplo Splash Safari for toddlers.
"True to our mission, the water park attraction has been designed for families with children ages 2 to 12 and will add hours of water play to an already full day and move Legoland Florida into a multi-day experience for vacationers," said Adrian Jones, Legoland Florida's general manager.
Legoland first announced plans for the water park during its grand opening in October.
Admission to the water park will be a $12 upgrade to the normal price of a park ticket. Children under 3 years old will be an additional $3. Access to the water park will be included with the new Legoland Premium annual pass.
Guests who want to spend a second day at Legoland pay $15 for park admission, plus $12 if they want to add on the water park attraction, said park spokeswoman Jackie Wallace.
Legoland described key areas of the water park as follows:
"LEGO Wave Pool – Families can catch a gentle wave or simply cool off in this perfectly sized wave pool where the waves are just big enough for all ages to enjoy
Twin Chasers – Friends ride tubes 375 feet down an intertwining pair of enclosed water slides before plunging into a refreshing pool below
Splash Out – The thrill seekers of the family can ascend to the tallest point of the water park attraction and choose from one of three unique slides, then speed down a 60-foot drop and "splash out" into the water below
Joker Soaker - A fun, interactive playground with various lengths, heights and types of slides that offer something different for every member of the family. Guests can wade in the surrounding pool and be surprised with a torrential spill from a 300-gallon bucket
Build-A-Raft River - Families can imagine, design and build a unique LEGO vessel and set afloat on a maiden voyage around the 1000-foot-long lazy river, set amongst playful LEGO Friends, flowering vegetation and palm trees
DUPLO Splash Safari – Toddlers will rule at this water play area with shorter slides and interactive, larger-than-life DUPLO creatures"Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
