5/25 LEGOLAND Florida Water Park Smashes World Record

Hi everyone!

LEGOLAND Florida's water park made a huge splash as 1355 guests participated in breaking a Guiness World Record yesterday! Officially opening tomorrow, the park invited 400 guests to enjoy free admission and participate. In the end, everybody who arrived by 9am was let in, and helped crush the old record 0f 401 beach balls bounced at one time! Keep reading for more information and photos.

There was a beautiful blue sky as guests got ready to bounce their beach balls. LEGOLAND Park General Manager Adrian Jones said a few words, and then there was a countdown for guests! You can see our video here of the event.

Guiness auditors will be evaluating the attempt over the next few weeks for authentication!

We did ask LEGOLAND General Manager Adrian Jones what his favorite attraction is. Our interview with him is here! Jones said he liked the Build-A-Raft lazy river the best. That was one of our two favorites as well. We also enjoyed the wave pool, which was much more gentle than I've experienced at other parks – I don't like a wave pool to be too strong. Guests can add LEGOS to their raft in the Build-A-Raft river, and we enjoyed doing just that! 

The LEGOLAND Florida water park is billed as "a park within a park". Guests park in the standard LEGOLAND parking lot, and walk through the main park to get to the water park. The cost is $12 over the standard LEGOLAND day ticket. The Premium Annual Pass  offers unlimited access for 12 months to both LEGOLAND Florida and the water park. There currently is no single day water park ticket, nor an annual pass good just for it. LEGOLAND Premium Annual Passes cost $179 for adults, and $149 for children ages 3-12 and seniors. I definitely think it's the way to go if you plan to spend at least a few days there within a year! The Premium Annual Pass also offers food and merchandise discounts, and free parking.

We didn't try the biggest water slides this time around. There really is something here for everyone, from toddlers to adults! Currently there are two LEGOLAND water parks in the world – in Florida and California.

It was a great day, thanks to LEGOLAND Florida for hosting us!  It was fun seeing a Guiness World Record being broken, and we are looking forward to going back.
