US$12m Legends of Chima waterpark opens its doors at Legoland California           

Legoland California is continuing expansion plans with the opening of a new attraction – the new Legends of Chima waterpark.

The multi-million dollar attraction, which opened on 23 May, has been designed to delight young children.

Based on the popular cartoon series “Legends of Chima,” the new waterpark – which is housed inside the park’s existing waterpark – features an 18.5 ft (5.6 m) Lion Temple arch made of 260,000 Lego bricks as a centrepiece. It will stream water into a kids’ interactive wave pool, while themed areas include Floating Mountain, Cragger’s Swamp, Explorer’s Forest, Rhino Beach and interactive play-themed areas, as well as dining facilities.

"When we asked our guests what they wanted, they really wanted to swim and play a little bit more as a family, that's why we added Lion Temple Wave Pool," said Legoland official Julie Estrada.

Merlin Entertainments – owner of Legoland California – invested an estimated US$12m (£7.1m, €8.8m) in the original waterpark and the same amount again on the new 130,000sq ft (12,140sq m) Legends of Chima expansion.
