LEGOLAND Florida has moved a step closer to completing its new water park, after half a million gallons of water were pumped into its wave pool.
The wave pool will be tamer than those at most other water parks in Florida, and is aimed at families with children aged 2-12. It will be one of a number of LEGO-themed attractions at the LEGOLAND Florida Water Park, which is due to open to the public on May 26, 2012.
The video below shows the "LEGO City Volunteer Fire Department" pumping water into the wave pool:
In addition to the wave pool, the LEGOLAND Florida Water Park will host a number of slides, a lazy river and a water playground. Several of these will be inherited from Cypress Gardens' Splash Island water park, which once sat on the same site.
Tickets to the water park will not be sold separately, with guests at the LEGOLAND Florida theme park instead having the option to upgrade their ticket for an additional $12 per person (or $3 per child under the age of 3).
More details of Florida's new aquatic attraction can be found in Theme Park Tourist's recent report on the LEGOLAND Florida Water Park's attraction line-up.
