Plans have been confirmed for the waterpark at Legoland Florida, just weeks after the main park debuted to the public. The new ‘second gate”, which will use the infrastructure of the old Cypress Gardens waterpark, will open in summer 2012.
Featuring tube slides, body slides, a wave pool, lazy river and interactive play structure, the new facility will adopt a very similar blueprint to the existing Legoland Water Park in California.
“We’re very excited to share plans for this amazing new attraction,” says Legoland Florida general manager Adrian Jones. “True to our mission, the waterpark has been designed for families with children ages two 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. The addition also adds another great value proposition for our annual pass members.”
Admission to the waterpark will be available to Legoland guests for an additional $12 per person ($3 for children under three), or free to holders of the new Legoland Premium Pass.
Attractions will include Build-A-Raft River, a 1,000ft lazy river where families can build a unique Lego tube and float past Lego characters, vegetation and palm trees; Joker Soaker interactive playground; Splash Out, a combination of three water down a 60-foot drop; Twin Chasers, a pair of intertwining enclosed water slides; Duplo Splash Safari, a water play area for toddlers, plus the wave pool, where families can catch a gentle wave or simply cool off poolside.
The first Legoland Water Park opened in 2010 at the Legoland California resort.
