Legoland announces plans for water park

WINTER HAVEN -- Legoland Florida is about to undergo a big expansion.

On Tuesday morning, the theme park unveiled new details about its upcoming water park, which is set to open later this year.

It's only been three months since the grand opening of Legoland Florida, but general manager Adrian Jones said that because the park has exceeded their goals in sales, they are starting construction on the water park sooner than they anticipated.

Some of the features of the new water park include floating bricks, which children will use to construct their own rafts in the lazy river.

"So you see these bricks flying around the lazy river, kids going crazy trying to build their unique raft, which again gives it that interactive element and takes the conventional lazy river to a whole new level with that interactivity," Jones said.

The water park also plans to foster new water engineers by allowing them to build dams in the wading pools thanks to a new feature called Imagination Station.

The park will also feature more lifeguards than standard water parks because the park's target audience is smaller children.
