CARLSBAD, Calif. (April 21, 2014) – Construction is fast and furious at LEGOLAND® California Resort with the new LEGO® Legends of Chima Water Park presented by Cartoon Network quickly approaching on May 24, 2014. The largest LEGO® model for the new Chima Water Park, a LEGO Lion Temple arch, was installed over Easter weekend. Stretching 18 ½ feet high and 14 feet wide and weighing 2,116 pounds, the LEGO arch will stream water beneath the massive lion head at the entrance to the Lion Temple Wave Pool. Created out of 260,000 LEGO bricks, the arch is the centerpiece of the new Water Park as it “protects” the interactive wave pool designed for families with young children.
The giant LEGO model is positioned in front of Mt. Cavora, the “floating” iconic mountain from the LEGO® Group’s newest hit product “Legends of Chima.” Mt. Cavora is 23-feet tall, 13-feet wide, weighs more than 11,000 pounds and will be releasing 400 gallons of water every minute as it “floats” 40-feet above the wave pool. Construction crews are also hard at work building Eglor’s Build-A-Boat. Much like the 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 race against their friends and build their own LEGO scene in Chima. Six LEGO models will be featured in this area, including four miniature scale models of areas within Chima Water Park and an Eagle Head that stands 11-feet-high.
Lion Temple Wave Pool and Eglor’s Build-a-Boat are two of eight areas featured in the new LEGO Legends of Chima Water Park. Other areas include: 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. More than 50 interactive water play features will delight young guests in water that is only one foot deep. Wolves’ Den – This is the place to grab a bite when guests get hungry! Enjoy tasty food surrounded by collectibles gathered by the clever wolf tribe. Explorers Forest- In this lush and tropical forest, guests will be greeted by Gorzan the Gorilla in his 15-foot tall mech suit. Rhino Beach – This sand filled oasis offers guests a place to get some shade, lounge and rest. Speedorz Arena- This interactive play area lets guests race their Speedorz through unique obstacles. Forever Rock- Featured just outside Cragger’s Swamp, the iconic rock contains a smaller rock acting as chalk board for kids to tally their achievements just as Cragger and Laval did. For those that want to kick back and stay awhile, 15 new cabanas surround the area for rent.
