Lego Land California Water Park Review – Family Friendly Water Fun Lego Style

 

I was lucky enough to experience the new Lego Land California Water Park. The first of its kind in the entire world.  And you will never guess who I met up with.  Alicia Minshew , Richie Herschenfeld and their beautiful daughter Willow. 

We were greeted by a Lego Pirate and shown to our private cabana overlooking Build-A-Raft River  and  Duplo Splash Safari. This is a water play area designed especially for toddlers with 3 small slides and interactive Duplo characters modeled after the actual pieces found in Lego sets! Build-A-Raft-River is a one of a kind concept where kids customize their own raft made of soft Lego bricks before floating down a lazy river. This was by far Willow’s favorite spot to hang out.

This place is amazing! The centerpiece is a 45-foot-tall tower designed to immerse guests in the creative world of Lego. WOW! There are also more than 20 Lego models including giant Lego friends that splash and spray water on guests!

Next we are off to Imagination Station.  An place for interactive, educational and imaginative fun! There are two interactive tables. On one, kids can build bridges, dams and cities out of Duplo bricks and test them against the flow of water. On the other, they control the flow of water by creating patterns out of Lego elements. In another area, a musical water stand with a series of holes on top that squirt water allows kids to become conductors of their own water symphony as they cover holes creating new music notes!

One of my personal favorites is Joker Soaker. A fun, interactive platform in the wading pool where you can aim water cannons at each other as a Lego jester model tell jokes while 350 gallons of water comes pouring down on you!

There is even a ride the entire family can enjoy together! Orange Rush is a family tube slide where up to 4 people can ride together down a 312 foot long curving track on an  11 foot diameter half pipe! Talk about fun!

If you are into Pirates than be sure and head over to Pirate Reef. Families choose between the blue or red ship and fire water cannons across the ship’s bows. To add to the excitement, you can join a buccaneer-filled boat as it races down a flume between the battling ships.

Looking to race? Try Twin Chasers. These two side by side red tube slides stretch nearly 130 feet and pour out into a wading area below.

After all that slipping and sliding I really worked up an appetite. There are plenty of yummy places to eat here but since we had the cabana we opted to order in. I had a fruit plate and cheeseburger that were amazing!  The cabanas even have a refrigerator stocked with popular beverages to wet your whistle.

You know, they say time flies when you’re having fun and boy did it ever!  Before we knew it was time to leave. I just had to hit the gift shop and pick up some Lego Land merchandise. From beach towels to Lego sets,  they cover all the bases. I even got a candy bar for the road!

My day at the park was amazing. Thanks Lego Land Water Park!
