There’s just something about LEGOS that captures the imagination of most kids who play with them. Those simple plastic blocks may not look like much on their own but with a little bit of ingenuity and imagination, they can be take the shape of whatever your child desires. Part of what makes the LEGOLAND resort so special is that celebrates a simple toy that has been a part of countless childhoods around the globe, and it does it on a grand scale. Where else can you see a replica of New York City recreated with over 2 million LEGOS? For over a decade, families have enjoyed more than 50 rides, shows, and attractions inside the LEGOLAND gates but now, they have something new to get excited about. This June, LEGOLAND opened the newest portion of its resort, the water park.
Recently, my family had the opportunity to visit LEGOLAND’s new water park and check out how LEGO does water. We were very pleased with what we found. Just like the rest of the resort, the water park was geared towards the 2-12 year old age group. There is a large toddler water play area with shallow water to splash in, Duplo animal shaped fountains, and toddler sized slides to ride. A huge LEGO castle is the centerpiece of the park, with brightly colored slides branching from its sides. The Build-A-Raft River winds lazily around the middle of the park, filled with LEGOS, which kids can snap to their rafts to create their own floating masterpieces. It’s a water-filled primary-colored wonderland!
Read my entire review of the LEGOLAND Water Park.
With an amusement park, aquarium, and water park all on it’s resort grounds, LEGOLAND has turned itself into a major destination for young families. Carlsbad is a great beachfront town and there are plenty of family friendly lodging options which make it all the more enticing (including Homewood Suites Carlsbad.
