Coming off a successful year with the launch of the nation’s first LEGOLAND® Hotel, LEGOLAND® California Resort General Manager Peter Ronchetti proudly announced another big addition for guests to enjoy next year: LEGO® Legends of Chima Water Park!
The LEGO Legends of Chima Water Park is based on the LEGO Group’s newest hit product “Legends of Chima”, where animal tribes battle in a mystical land for control of the precious energy source called “CHI”. Plunging a shovel into the sand to break ground in the new area, Ronchetti discovered a treasure box full of CHI and with the help of lifeguards and Laval, the warrior prince of the Lion tribe, he announced LEGO Legends of Chima Water Park is opening in summer 2014.
“2014 is a big investment year for us. A great corner stone to the Resort’s success is listening to our guests and striving to increase the value of their experience,” said General Manager Peter Ronchetti. “We are excited to build an entirely new Water Park based on the LEGO Chima product line immersing children and their families into an interactive world of play!”
Four of eight main areas of the 3 acre Water Park were introduced today: Lion Temple Wave Pool – The centerpiece of the new Water Park where guests make their way through a LEGO® archway and into an interactive wave pool designed for families with young children. Water cascades down an iconic 30-foot tall floating “Mount Cavora” which shows the eight animals representing each animal tribe. Cragger’s Swamp – This hands-on water play area invites guests to ride water slides, blast water cannons and jets and slide through the head of a massive crocodile. Eglor’s Build-A-Boat – Following in the unique interactive play experience introduced with Build-A-Raft River at LEGOLAND Water Park, Eglor’s Build-A-Boat gives children the opportunity to use their creativity and bring their imaginations to life. Young guests can build their own boat and learn how to change the currents, build and dodge obstacles and race against their friends. Wolves’ Cantina – This is the place to grab a bite when guests get hungry! Enjoy tasty food surrounded by collectibles gathered by the clever wolf tribe.
“LEGOLAND California opened its gates in 1999, expanded with SEA LIFE® Aquarium in 2008, we opened the world’s first LEGO themed Water Park in 2010 and the nation’s first LEGOLAND Hotel this year. It only seems fitting that we give our guests another ‘present’ and reason to keep coming back in our fifteenth year!” Ronchetti stated.
LEGO Legends of Chima Water Park is included in the cost of admission to LEGOLAND Water Park.
