Like many water parks at theme parks, Legoland offers easy access between the two. Unlike many other locations, however, admission to the water park is not included in the general price. There is a separate gate and a second ticket is required for entry (although the fee is relatively low).
The park is not huge (unlike some of the best-in-class Florida water parks), nor does it have a large collection of water slides and other attractions. And like the theme park, there are no teen-targeted thrill rides. Geared to younger kids and their families, the "pink-knuckle" rides include Twin Chasers, a pair of enclosed body slides that pit riders against one another, Joker Soaker, an interactive water play center with the requisite tipping bucket, and the Lego wave pool, which features toned-dwon waves.
Pint-sized visitors will find pint-sized slides as well as eponymous characters at the Duplo Splash Safari. And keeping with the interactive, we-make-you-work-while-you-ride ethos of Legoland, the water park offers Build-A-Raft-River, a lazy river in which guests are invited to, well, build their own rafts using Lego-like raft pieces.
It's probably not large enough to warrant a special trip, and visitors shouldn't expect a full day of water park fun. But as an adjunct to a day at the adjacent theme park, the Legoland Water Park should offer a fun way to chill out and splash around.
Operating Schedule:Like Legoland, the water park is open year round, but is closed midweek (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) on certain weeks in the offseason months of January through May and September through December. Check with the park for exact operating days and hours.
Location:Adjacent to Legoland Florida in Winter Haven, Florida.
