The LEGOLAND Water Park is a seasonal water park and is only open on normal park days from summer through the fall and like the main park is closed on some Tuesdays and Wednesdays except during peak periods.
For 2016 it opens for select dates March 12 through the end of October, with daily operation in June and July.
The new LEGOLAND Florida Water Park is a combination of some of Cypress Gardens’s original rides plus new rides similar to those found in LEGOLAND’s California water park.
The original Splash Island’s VooDoo Plunge 60 foot drop tube/slide ride has become Splash Out with its three unique slides. Minimum rider height is 48 inches.
The duelling 375 feet Tonga Tubes became the Twin Chasers. Minimum rider height is 42 inches.
The interactive Polynesian Adventure play area and pool became the new Lego Joker Soaker with its 300 gallon soaker bucket.
The Lego Wave Pool has very gentle waves and zero-entry access so everyone can enjoy it. Nearby is The Imagination Station where kids can experiment and play with flowing water by building bridges and dams out of DUPLO bricks.
The Build-A-Raft River features see-through single and double tube rafts with oversized Lego blocks that float to allow guests to customise their ride down the 1000 foot lazy river. The whole area has been themed with Lego models and vegetation.
A brand new Duplo Splash Safari for toddlers (kids aged 6 and under) has also been constructed and features a shallow pool, smaller slides, shading and giant Duplo animals. Children must be able to walk unassisted and sit upright to ride down the slides. All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
New for the 2016 season is the Creative Cove situated between the Wave Pool and Build-a-Raft River. Here at Build-a-Boat, young guests can build and then race LEGO watercraft in a themed setting based on the LEGO City Coast Guard building sets.
There will also be additional dining options and free Wi-Fi throughout the water park.
If you are feeling hungry then there is the Beach-n-Brick Grill serving burgers, hot dogs, chicken tenders and salads and you can buy a range of swimwear and footwear at the Surf Shop
Entrance to the water park is from the existing Legoland Florida park and can only be accessed as an add-on to the normal theme park admission. It is an extra $20 for everyone.
History of LEGOLAND Florida Water Park
By starting with the existing Cypress Gardens Splash Island, LEGOLAND Florida was able to renovate, enhance and re-theme the water park in double quick time and it opened in time for the 2012 summer season.
