Three-hundred gallons of water came appropriately crashing down on the back of surprised LEGOLAND Florida general manager Adrian Jones at the grand opening of the theme park’s new water park attraction. It’s the first expansion of the park that opened just seven months ago, now adding even more LEGO-branded fun for kids of all ages.
“This is an important day for us as we continue to grow our presence in Central Florida,” said LEGOLAND Florida General Manager Adrian Jones, who – clad in suit and tie – was unexpectedly soaked during opening ceremonies.

LEGOLAND Florida dubs their new water park attractions as a “park within a park,” featuring a Build-A-Raft River spanning 1,000 feet, the Joker Soaker water playground, the DUPLO® Splash Safari for toddlers, five water slides, and a 583,000-gallon, wave pool.
The park also added the Beach-n-Brick Grille, an outdoor patio featuring a menu of jerk chicken, mahi mahi, pulled pork sandwiches, chicken fingers, hamburgers and hotdogs, all priced below $10, before tax, including combos that come with fries, salad or slaw and a 22-ounce drink.
Admission to the water park requires a LEGOLAND Florida theme park ticket plus a $12 water park upgrade. Guests may alternately purchase a 12-month Premium Annual Pass, which offers unlimited access to both parks, for $179 for adults and $149 for children ages 3-12 and seniors.
