LEGOLAND® Water Park kicks off its longest season ever March 10!

Get ready to splash, slide and build more than ever before! LEGOLAND® Water Park at LEGOLAND Florida Resort is opening Saturday, March 10 for its longest season ever!

You’ll have more time than ever before to splash, slide and build at the place recently named one of the country’s best outdoor water parks in USA TODAY’s “10Best” poll.

You can bring your LEGO® creations to life at Build-a-Raft River, race down a pair of enclosed slides on Twin Chasers and get splashed big time by the 300-gallon bucket at Joker Soaker!

The fun doesn’t stop there, however. You can hang out in our LEGO-themed wave pool, where the waves are big enough for all ages to enjoy, or visit Build-A-Boat and design a LEGO boat to race.

Looking for a place to rest and relax? LEGOLAND Water Park has private cabanas available for rent that include storage lockers, a mini-fridge and dining assistance from an at-your-service host.

Hungry? We’re debuting an all-new dining facility for water park guests — Beach Street Tacos! Located exclusively inside LEGOLAND Water Park, the menu will feature made-to-order beef, chicken and fish tacos.

Meanwhile, Beach-n-Brick Grill offers a variety of quick-service items underneath a covered pavilion so you can enjoy your lunch in the shade. If you’re looking for a delicious way to beat the heat, pick up a frozen treat at Ice Cream Hut.

Save big and order tickets online. One- and two-day combo tickets are available that include same-day admission to our theme park and water park! Otherwise, admission to LEGOLAND Water Park is $22.50 (plus tax) in addition to the cost of a same-day theme park ticket for adults, children 3-12 or seniors 60 and older! Separate, water park-only admission is not available.

The best way to enjoy a full season of water park fun is with an annual pass. Choose from one of several affordable pass types that include no blackout dates, complimentary parking and discounts on retail and dining purchases, plus great deals on overnight stays at LEGOLAND Hotel and LEGOLAND Beach Retreat.

LEGOLAND Water Park will be open select dates March 10 through Oct. 28, with daily operation in April, May, June, July and August! Please visit our Operating Calendar for complete dates and hours.

We can’t wait to see you at what’s sure to be the best water park season ever!

Brick fans, start your engines! The Great LEGO® Race opening March 23

Put the pedal to the plastic when The Great LEGO® Race opens Friday, March 23 at LEGOLAND® Florida Resort! The exciting new attraction combines roller coaster thrills with virtual reality (VR) technology for a rollicking race against LEGO minifigures.

It’s the first VR roller coaster experience designed for kids and represents the first time the LEGO brand and minifigures have been integrated with VR technology in a theme park attraction.

The Great LEGO Race

A bold new entrance portal will welcome guests to The Great LEGO Race when it opens in the theme park’s LEGO Technic area Friday, March 23.

With animated action taking place on the ground and in the air, the wild and wacky race pits guests against a pirate, wizard, surfer and pharaoh as they steer LEGO-built vehicles like a rocket-powered windsurfing rig, a stylish scooter fueled by espresso and an ornately canopied bed (called a “litter”) carried by mummy servants.

Wearing optional VR headsets, riders will experience the action from every direction while riding the roller coaster — up, down, forward, backward and all points in between — in a dazzling environment where everything is made of LEGO bricks.

The Great LEGO Race

During The Great LEGO Race, guests wearing optional virtual reality headsets will experience the animated action from every direction while riding the roller coaster.

In November, reporters received a sneak preview of the 360-degree adventure during the annual International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) trade show in Orlando. Here’s what one had to say:

Fans can experience a similar preview of the VR adventure with MackMedia’s Coastiality mobile app, available for iOS, Android and Oculus devices from the App Store, Google Play and the Oculus Store. It’s free to download and can be enjoyed with or without a VR headset.

Who can ride?

  • Under 42 inches (1.06m): Not tall enough to ride yet! Check out other exciting attractions like AQUAZONE® Wave Racers, Technicycle, Kid Power Towers, The Dragon and LEGO® NINJAGO® The Ride.
  • 42-47 inches (1.06m-1.19m): Can ride without the VR headset when accompanied by a responsible rider 14 years or older and at least 48 inches tall (1.21m), who must ride without the VR headset to supervise his or her companion.
  • 48 inches (1.21m) and above: Can ride with or without the VR headset if he or she is alone. If he or she is supervising a companion rider 42-47 inches (1.06m-1.19m), both riders cannot wear the VR headset.
  • The VR headset is recommended for children ages 6 and up with a minimum height of 48 inches (1.21m).
  • Guests in wheelchairs must be able to transfer to the ride vehicle with assistance from a member of their party. While LEGOLAND Model Citizens are happy to assist, they are not permitted to lift guests into or out of a ride vehicle.

Can guests ride the roller coaster without wearing the VR headset?

  • Yes. A guest 48 inches (1.21m) or taller can ride with or without the VR headset if he or she is alone. If he or she is supervising a companion rider 42-47 inches (1.06m-1.19m), both riders cannot wear the VR headset.

Will the VR headsets be cleaned between each guest?

  • Model Citizens will wipe each headset clean with a sanitizing pad after each use. Headsets will be inspected regularly and replaced as necessary.

For the first time ever, LEGOLAND Florida guests will enjoy freshly made funnel cakes when Funnel Cake Factory opens this spring next to The Great LEGO Race.

Coming soon: Funnel Cake Factory

After crossing the finish line on The Great LEGO Race, guests can switch gears and enjoy an all-new treat at Funnel Cake Factory, which will open this spring just steps away from the roller coaster in the theme park’s LEGO Technic area. The highly themed pit stop will offer freshly made-to-order funnel cakes with toppings including fresh fruit, powdered sugar and soft-serve ice cream.

Tip #1:  Visit early

The busiest event dates will be closer to Christmas, so avoid the hustle, bustle and long lines by visiting earlier in the month! You’ll get to enjoy everything the popular annual event has to offer!

Tip #2: Pick up an event guide

Learn about everything from brick-tastic shows to festive snacks, special offers to dazzling LEGO® photo ops like our giant new wreath or cheerful reindeer!  Pick one up as you enter the park.

Tip #3: Stay and play at LEGOLAND Hotel

Surround yourself in a Christmas wonderland at LEGOLAND Hotel. Exclusive activities are available free of charge for hotel guests during Christmas Bricktacular, such as decorating cookies with Mrs. Claus, creating a special holiday LEGO® model with a Master Model Builder or listening to a Christmas story during a stroll on the Christmas Boardwalk Tour.

Tip #4: Enjoy storytime with Mrs. Claus

In the theme park, listen to Mrs. Claus tell an interactive holiday story multiple times on each date of Christmas Bricktacular. Then write a letter to Santa and send it all the way to the North Pole. A little elf told us that Santa will reply to every LEGOLAND letter!

Tip #5: Save shopping for last

Do your shopping at the end of the day and you won’t have to carry your purchases around while having fun! Or, use our complimentary package pickup service if you shop throughout the day and have your purchases waiting for you to pick up on your way out.
