At the grand opening of LEGOLAND Florida, plans to expand the theme park with a new water park and hotel were hinted at. Today LEGOLAND Florida has officially announced details and an opening timeline for LEGOLAND Water Park.

The new water park is scheduled to open for summer 2012, featuring a wave pool, Build-A-Raft lazy river, tube slides, body slides and an interactive water-play structure, DUPLO Safari.

“We’re very excited to share plans for this amazing new attraction,” said LEGOLAND Florida General Manager Adrian Jones. “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. The additional also adds another great value proposition for our Annual Pass members.”

Attractions inside LEGOLAND Water Park will include:

  • 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
  • “This newest attraction is just one of many ways we will continue to evolve LEGOLAND Florida over the next several years,” said Jones. “Creating a multi-visit proposition for families adds another dimension to the LEGOLAND Florida offering. Adding the water park attraction will fulfill this criteria as well as offering a unique attraction in Central Florida. ”

    Last year, the first-ever LEGOLAND Water Park opened in California, with similar attractions as to what will be featured in the Florida version when it opens next in 2012.

    Admission to the water park attraction will be included with the new LEGOLAND Premium Pass, which offers 12 months admission to LEGOLAND Florida as well as seasonal access to the LEGOLAND Water Park. Single-day LEGOLAND Florida guests can upgrade to a water park attraction ticket for an additional $12 per person (children under 3 are $3). The Premium Pass is now available for purchase at or select AAA Auto Club Group branches.
