Legoland California Water Park prepares for May 28 opening

The water is flowing to fill up the pools and slides at the Legoland Water Park, which opens May 28 in Carlsbad, California.

Legoland brought in local firefighters for a “bucket brigade” photo op to start filling the park’s lazy river. In Legoland fashion, the river is called the Build-A-Raft River, and kids will be able to build their own raft out of soft Lego building blocks.

The new park is geared for families with kids ages 2 to 12. Attractions include:

  • Jumbo Lego models that splash or spray water
  • Orange Rush, a family tube slide
  • Twin Chasers, side-by-side enclosed tube slides
  • Splash Out, a 240-foot open body slide
  • Joker Soaker, a water play platform with water cannons
  • Duplo Splash Safari, a smaller water play area sized for preschoolers

The 5.5-acre water park is adjacent to Legoland California. Admission to the water section will cost an extra $10 on top of the Legoland admission ticket.
