Legoland Florida celebrated its newest expansion today, The World of Chima presented by Cartoon Network.
Opening to guests on July 3, 2013, the centerpiece attraction, The Quest for Chi, features an interactive water ride where guests will set off on an otherworldly and super-wet adventure. After boarding watercraft, families can use water cannons to 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 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.”
The World of Chima features:
• 2 million Lego bricks, (bringing the total of Lego bricks found in Legoland Florida to 58 million)
• Nearly 150 Lego models
• 219,000 gallons of water in The Quest for Chi
• Capacity for approximately 1,200 guests per hour to experience The Quest for Chi ride
• Mount Cavora which stands 55 feet from the ground, weighs 7,500 lbs. and rushes 1,000 gallons of water every minute
