CARLSBAD–Firefighters from the Carlsbad Fire Department helped the zany members of LEGOLAND® California’s Fun Town Volunteer Fire Department put the first gallons of water into Kid Creek and Build-A-Raft River at LEGOLAND® Water Park, which opened May 28.
The two fire “crews” created a bucket brigade across the Build-A-Raft River, where kids will be able to customize their own raft made of soft LEGO® bricks before floating down the lazy river. The local heroes from the Carlsbad Fire Department helped steady the flow of water shooting from the fire hose into Kid Creek, a lazy river built with younger kids in mind in the DUPLO® Splash Safari section of the world’s first LEGO themed Water Park.
When the bucket brigade completed the water fill, they were given a sneak peek of some of LEGOLAND Water Park’s other exciting elements including more than 20 jumbo LEGO models who splash or spray water on guests; 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, Splash Out, an open body slide that invites guests to slide 240 feet and “splash out” into the water below; and 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 and pours 350 gallons of water down upon them.
The 5.5 acre LEGOLAND Water Park is located at the north end of LEGOLAND California adjacent to Fun Town with the entrance located between the Factory Tour and the Adventurer’s Club. LEGOLAND guests will be able to upgrade their Park tickets to include LEGOLAND Water Park for just $10. Geared for families with children ages 2 to 12, the Water Park will be included in the price of Water Park Hopper tickets and Resort Hopper tickets which include SEA LIFE Aquarium as well. Water Park admission will also be included in Resort Memberships.
