A reminder that Legoland Florida is a work in progress: The theme park recently reworked the Grand Carousel that it inherited from Cypress Gardens. The original steeds have been replaced with Lego-themed horses.
A bigger project is the renovation of Splash Island Water Park, which will open May 26 with new Lego theming. Here’s a rendering of Joker Soaker, which will be the centerpiece of the water park, with slides and a bucket that dumps 300 gallons of water on guests. The park will also have a Build-A-Raft lazy river, where guests design their own rafts with Lego accessories; a gentle wave pool; the Duplo Splash Safari for toddlers; and other features. Admission to the water park will be a $12 add-on to Legoland admission.
Also coming to Legoland: the Warner Brothers Game Zone, where kids can play new Lego video games, including a new Batman game due out later this year; and the Fresh From Florida Greenhouse Tour, where guests will learn how Florida produce is grown, harvested and prepared (sponsored by Fresh From Florida, an outreach program of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services). Both are scheduled to open in March.
