A Fun Summer Day at Legoland’s Water Park
Legoland is one of our favorite entertainment parks. It doesn’t matter what season of the year you plan to visit, it offers all kinds of entertainment for all ages inside the main park for all seasons and a great water adventure for the summer. There are rides and sections for all ages and for all levels of curiosity. They offer family restrooms and a Baby Care section for breastfeeding mothers. And the best part of all is that it may be a crowded park in a beautiful day, but you may not notice it.
After visiting Hurricane Harbor and the Legoland Water Park, our Kiddy travel family highly recommends the Legoland Water Park for many reasons:
- Legoland’s Water Park is located inside the main park as you go into Funtown and close to the Lego Factory Tour. Therefore, you can hop from the main park into the water park and vice versa when you are ready to do so.
- Most of the pools are between 2’ and 3’ deep, which may take away your concern if you have capable swimmers.
- Talk about a park that is Safe!! there are a gazillion lifeguards everywhere you look to give you a peace of mind while you enjoy the park yourself.
- The Water Park offers 3 different slides, the Orange Rush with a a raft that fits all family members in it, the Splash Out slide where you can slide individually if you are over 42” tall, and the Twin Chasers, which are two slides that are completely closed out and very fast. All the slides go into a 2’ deep pool with at least 2 lifeguards watching at all times
- There are two sections with white sand and chairs in case you would like to get a tan or have the smallest members of your family play with sand
- We loved the Build A Raft River with legos that you can build around your own raft and just let go and relax as your raft goes along the lazy river.
- There is an imagination station at the entrance of the park where kids can build their own bridges and cities with duplo bricks and play music in a musical water stand.
- Kids can also play at the Joker soaker station with water canons or at the Duplo Splash Safari and the Splash zoo when they decide not to go in the slides
- Legoland provides lifejackets at no extra costs at all times (except, they are the first things every parent looks for right at the entrance, so make sure you have one right away)
- This park is highly recommended for youngsters and it’s the perfect size for children under 12 years old. In comparison to Hurricane Harbor, which is better for tweens and teenagers with a wide variety of slides and water parks.
What Families Should Know:
- The Hopper tickets are $81 per adult and $71 per child between 3 and 12 years old and $3 for children one to two years old.
- There are current promotions going on at Wendy’s when you buy a meal. For a price of an adult hopper ticket, you can get a child in for free!
- It’s better to rent a family locker for $9 or a medium locker for $7 if you have a small backpack. But, we recommend the family locker so you don’t have to carry your change of clothes and valuables around the parks.
- There are family sized changing rooms for your convenience. We would have loved to see some showers, but at least you can change of clothes…
- The full day cabana rental is $179.99 and the half day rental is $129.99, which may work out for you if you are planning to stay at the Water Park for a long time. But, we didn’t find it necessary for us.
- There is only one restaurant inside the Water Park called the Beach Front Grill that offers burritos, salads, sandwiches, and fresh fruit. Although, as you exit the park, you will find other restaurant options within a few steps.
