Legoland water park details released

Legoland Florida has unveiled the six main features of its rebuilt water park that is slated to re-open at the Winter Haven kids theme park by next summer.

Built over a water park vacated by the former Cypress Gardens, the layout includes a 1,000 foot lazy river, 375-foot long ride tubes, 60-foot tall slides and a wave pool with surf gentle enough for the elementary school set. There's also a smaller alternative for toddlers.

One lazy river feature is a shot at building your own raft from what appears to be buoyant over-sized Legos.

"We're rebuilding and adding a layer of Lego to everything," said park spokeswoman Jackie Wallace.

Admission to the water park is being sold only as a $12 add-on to a single day ticket to the theme park next door or a $20 upgrade to annual passes that until now topped out at $159 for adults, $129 for kids 3 through 12 years old and seniors over 60.

The water park is part of a larger strategy to make Legoland a two-day experience worthy of an overnight stay.
