Legoland Florida’s new water park is getting started by setting a new world record. Early estimates show the Guinness World Record for the most people bouncing beach balls was obliterated on May 24, 2012 by guests at the new water park.
The final total reached 1,355 volunteers, which smashed the previous record of 401 beach balls. Guinness auditors will evaluate the attempt for authentication over the next several weeks. The colorful event celebrated the addition of the water park attraction, which opens to the public Saturday, May 26.
Here’s a look at the world record attempt:
A “park within a park,” the water park includes Build-A-Raft River, where guests can build their own Lego inner tubes and float down a 1,000-foot lazy river. For the little ones, the Duplo Splash Safari has perfectly sized slides a zero-depth wading pool. Guests of all ages can play for hours at the Joker Soaker water playground, a riot of brightly colored ladders, levers, pumps and slides of every length and type. And a 583,000-gallon, crystal-clear wave pool and five slippery-fast water slides will thrill families.
Admission to the water park requires a Legoland Florida theme park ticket plus a $12 water park upgrade. Guests may also purchase a 12-month Premium Annual Pass, which offers unlimited access to both parks, for just $179 for adults and $149 for children ages 3-12 and seniors.
