Legoland Water Park Tour #1 - Entrance, Facilities, Menus

We'll be taking a photo tour over the next few days of Legoland's Water Park, which opened several weeks ago but I've only recently taken a leisurely tour of the various attractions here.

Let's start at the entrance. You pay a $12 upgrade per person to go into this park. The brick pylons here were not present when the water park first opened.

There's a Surf Shop near the entrance, with sundries, swim clothes, and lots of other knickknacks. Here, as elsewhere in the park, you'll find LEGO touches, such as small figures constructed out of the signature blocks.

The only dining establishment in the water park is around the corner from there, and the bar is behind that. Here are the menus!

There are LEGO touches in the lazy river area, and in the Duplo kids slides.

At the wave pool, a second interactive table has been added, letting kids have a second place to build bricks and interact with water.

There's a bathroom near the kiddie playground, but it has no kid-sized urinals - only adult-sized. This is undoubtedly because the park and its facilities were installed when this area was owned by Cypress Gardens and not targeted to families with little kids. They need to change that.
