Winter Haven, Fla. (May 24, 2012) Early estimates show the Guinness World Record for the most people bouncing beach balls was obliterated today by guests at LEGOLAND® Florida’s new water park.

The colorful event celebrated the addition of the water park attraction, which opens to the public Saturday, May 26.

A “park within a park,” the attraction 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 is a toddler haven with 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 all day long.
