Guide to LEGOLAND Water Park + Giveaway!


LEGOLAND® Water Park is located inside the park (additional ticket required) at the north end of LEGOLAND® California adjacent to Fun Town (see map below). This part of the park has been opened since May 2010. It includes Legends of Chima Water Park, Pirate’s Reef, Soak-n-Sail, and new this summer – Surfer’s Cove! Surfer’s Cove features six water slides which extends 100-feet where guests can race each other for the fastest time on Riptide Racers water slides. Look for a LEGO winner’s trophy for a great photo opportunity! There’s a new spray ground called Wipeout Lagoon where multiple water jets splash on and off creating a wave effect. New eatery offers Beach Street Tacos and new seating area. Find new LEGO models throughout in beach themes – LEGO surfers, LEGO seagulls, LEGO crabs, a LEGO lifeguard, and a surfing dog model sits on top of a wave at the peak of Riptide Racers.

UPDATE: We were there June 30th, and Surfers’ Cove was nearly finished. I checked last week and they said that the area is now open but the ride is not. Be sure to follow their Facebook page, because that is where they will announce it.

Water Park Rides and Attractions:

  • The centerpiece of LEGOLAND Water Park is a 45-foot-tall tower designed to immerse children in the creative world of LEGO®. The four main slides originate with this tower.
  • Splash Zoo: An interactive area for toddlers featuring giant DUPLO Zoo animals – including a lion, a giraffe and a zebra – plus interactive spray pads, fountains and ateeter totter, all geared specifically for guests ages 1 to 3
  • Orange Rush: A family tube slide where up to four people can ride together down a 312-foot-long curving track on an 11-foot in diameter half pipe
  • Twin Chasers: Two side-by-side enclosed red tube slides that stretch nearly 130 feet and pour into a wading area below
  • Splash Out: An open body slide that invites guests to slide 240 feet and “splash out” into the water below

  • Kid Creek: A lazy river within DUPLO® Splash Safari built with younger kids in mind
  • Joker Soaker: A fun interactive platform in the wade pool where kids can aim water cannons at each other as a LEGO jester model “tells” jokes while 350 gallons of water pour down upon them
  • Imagination Station: Interactive, educational and imaginative fun! There are two interactive tables where kids can build bridges, dams and cities out of DUPLO bricks and test them against the flow of water or control the flow of water by creating patterns out of LEGO elements. In another area, a musical water stand with a series of holes on top that squirt water allows kids to become conductors of their own water symphony as they cover holes creating new music notes.
