LEGOLAND Florida Celebrates Opening of
The LEGO World of Chima Presented by Cartoon Network
Expansion Features Thrilling, Interactive Water Ride and Play Areas
Today LEGOLAND Florida celebrates the opening of The LEGO® World of Chima presented by Cartoon Network today, and we were able to visit for Media Day yesterday.
The World of Chima is a new direction for LEGOLAND Florida, as it marks the first of many highly-themed areas that will be coming to the park in the years to come.
The Quest for Chi, is the centerpiece attraction for The World of Chima, and features an interactive water ride where guests will join in the battle to protect the Chi and get SOAKED!
On The Quest for Chi after boarding your watercraft, families can use water cannons activate the story in each of the scenes along their journey as well as have a chance to battle other boats and guests along the shore line.
The Quest for Chi is a fun attraction! The controls for the ride are simple for children to operate without help from adults and the theming is age appropriate.
Some things to keep in mind while you’re riding The Quest for Chi…
- Each boat has 2 rows of cannons with benches for you to sit, but you can also stand.
- As you load your watercraft, the benches on the side closest to the load area are a little dryer…just a little tho!
- YOU WILL GET WET!!! Please head this warning, and watch out for your cameras and phones!!!
The only height requirement for The Quest for Chi is that riders under 48” must ride with a supervising companion.
Cragger’s Swamp Play Area is a water play area for younger guests that features playful bubbles, intermittent water spouts, and interactive elements that trigger swamp water effects.
The models in Cragger’s Swamp are pretty awesome and the water cannons are a lot of fun! I almost got soaked from the water spouts that go off as you get closer to them!
At the Speedorz Arena, guests can take part in a multiple players battle against each other using rip cordpowered LEGO vehicles. The Arena is under shade, and there are benches for parents to sit which is a huge plus for this area!!!
The World of Chima also features a character meet and greet area, located near Razar’s Bazaar.
Razar’s Bazaar is the merchandise location that carries the latest LEGO Legends of Chima building sets, costumes, and other Chima merchandise.
LEGO Legends of Chima fans also shouldn’t miss the new and exclusive to LEGOLAND Parks and Discovery Centers 4-D movie experience, The LEGO Chima Movie Experience.
“The World of Chima will become a signature land for LEGOLAND Florida and provides an experience unlike any other in our park today,” said Adrian Jones, LEGOLAND Florida General Manager. “Developing and opening yet another expansion is a prime example of how LEGOLAND Florida continues to provide unique guest experiences, rides, shows and attractions for families with children ages 2-12.”
