Pirate Reef: New Water Ride Opening May 25, 2012
Pirates and Lifeguards Take Aim at Each Other as Water Cannons Arrive to Pirate Reef at Legoland California!
A battle took place at Legoland California yesterday as Lifeguards from Legoland Water Park and Pirates from Pirate Shores tested water cannons for the first time for the family theme park’s new ride, Pirate Reef, opening May 25, 2012.
Guests of Legoland California and Legoland Water Park are invited to board boats and plunge 25 feet down a chute between two pirate ships and make a giant splash! The fun doesn’t stop there…equipped with 12 water cannons, guests can choose which ship to board and choose who they’d like to battle: Captain Blue Brick or Captain Red Brick.
“Experiencing great success with both our Pirate Shores attraction and Legoland Water Park, we felt creating a pirate-themed splash down ride would be a great addition to our Park,” said Legoland California General Manager Peter Ronchetti. “Of course our Model Citizens (employees) take pride in each of their areas so it’s only natural for our Lifeguards and Pirates to want to take ownership of this new ride, but there is plenty of room for all to play.”
Situated in between the Legoland Water Park and Pirate Shores (and accessible from both areas), Pirate Reef features two massive pirate ships that stand 20 feet high and 40 feet long, a splash bridge that is sure to leave guests soaked and a pirate inspired brick building play area. Throughout Pirate Reef more than 30 pirate-themed Lego models, made up more than 223,000 Lego bricks, are featured including both Captain Red Brick and Captain Blue Brick, pirates, monkeys, parrots and more.
Stay tuned, the countdown has begun…Pirate Reef at Legoland California Resort is scheduled to open on May 25, 2012!
