ABOVE: The entrance to LEGOLAND Waterpark. It’s not a separate gate in the traditional sense, it is a park-within-a-park. Entrance to LEGOLAND is required, along with an additional $12 charge for use of the waterpark.

There are lots of LEGO touches, such as this relaxing LEGO man, as well as the lazy river, which includes a Build-a-Raft feature. Guests can grab giant floating LEGO blocks to decorate their rafts

LEGOLAND Waterpark’s most thrilling attractions come in the form of three body slides on the Splash Out structure. Unfortunately, the access stairs afford a great view of the park’s “boneyard” and decaying sections of the unrestored Cypress Gardens area.

Most of the park’s body slides are contained within the play structure, known as the Joker Soaker.

The Twin Chasers are two intertwined tube slides. Guests can ride in single or double tubes.
