My girls have been seeing the commercials for Legoland’s New CHIMA Water Park for weeks now, and we were thrilled to attend a blogger preview. This visit was special because it was also our first time at Legoland California, and we had the best time visiting the park, water park and Sea Life Aquarium.
The Legends of CHIMA Water Park is a newly opened area of the Legoland water park with some really awesome features for the kiddos.
Right here, is where we spent most of our time, Cragger’s Swamp. A hands-on water play area, featuring 3 water slides, water cannons, jets, and more than 50 interactive water play features. My girls did not want to leave and since the water was warm and only 1 foot deep, they felt very confident to explore on their own.
My 3 year old had a blast going down the slide over and over and over again. The mouth of the crocodile didn’t scare them one bit, they loved the whole design of everything here.
This was another of my favorite parts of Legoland, there are so many areas around the entire park where kids can create and build with Lego’s. CHIMA also features two areas to build and play. At Eglor’s Build-A-Boat my girls were able to design and build their own boat and then race against each other as they set their boat down river.
I’m never too excited to eat at an amusement park, the food is always overpriced and never really tastes all that well. But not here! We had a delicious lunch at Wolves’ Den Grill. My husband and I both had a tasty cheeseburger, he had tater tots, I had chili cheese fries, the girls had hot dogs, and a fruit cup and drinks, all for just over $30. The food was worth every penny and the girls enjoyed watching a Lego movie while they ate. I apologize for not taking pictures of the delicious food, I don’t know if you know what it’s like when you have a hungry husband and two hungry kids, food gets devoured pretty quickly.
The Lion Temple Wave Pool is awesome and designed for families with young children. My oldest was just shy of the height requirement so she needed a life jacket, and my youngest needed a life jacket and to be accompanied by an adult. So in I went with my littles and had so much fun!
Once you hear the loud horn, the waves begin. I am so glad that there was a warning because my girls really trusted their life jackets and enjoyed floating on their backs.
When we go back, (Notice I said when, not if.) we will definitely try out all the other areas of the water park. I really wanted to try the Build-a-raft River, but we ran out of time because we also wanted to make sure we saw the rest of the park and the Sea Life Aquarium.
And then we ran into this AWESOME guy outside of the Lego Movie Experience.
The Sea Life Aquarium was such a cool experience! From the time you enter, you are welcomed by both Sea Life and fun hands-on activities.
And here I am in a bubble on the sea floor. We had such a great time here and there is just SO MUCH TO DO! Everything is really so fun and interactive and makes for great family memories.
