Builders have added two million Lego bricks to the park since its inaugural season last year, bringing the total number used in models at the water park to four million pieces.
Like its neighboring Legoland theme park, the water park is geared toward families of children ages 2 to 12.
With a Florida Resident Annual Pass, you can get unlimited admission to both the water park and theme park, plus free parking, for a total of $99.
In addition to LEGO seahorses, clams, surfers and shells now displayed throughout, the new features at the LEGOLAND Water Park include:
- Build-A-Raft River Entrance: A new brightly-colored LEGO entrance now greets guests as they enter this distinctive 1,000-foot lazy river experience where families can test their creativity by building their own LEGO rafts.
- LEGO Moby Dick: While floating along the Build-A-Raft River, families will be fascinated by Moby Dick, a ferocious whale made famous in American literature. LEGO Moby Dick is made of 200,879 LEGO DUPLO® bricks.
- LEGO Wave Pool: The 583,000-gallon, crystal-clear wave pool is now decked-out with an amazing display of bright, cascading blue waves with two new LEGO models:
- LEGO Shark, made of 248,642 bricks, is found among the waves searching for friends.
- LEGO Scuba Diver, made of 86,233 bricks, finds himself face-to-face with a fiercely friendly LEGO Shark.
- LEGO Mermaid: The entrance of the LEGOLAND Water Park now provides an impressive exhibit of intermittent water spouts and playful bubbles that burst from a LEGO Mermaid standing 15 feet tall. LEGO Mermaid is made of 176,210 bricks.
A new dining option can be found near the LEGO Wave Pool serving up delicious hot dogs and more.
