.LEGOLAND Water Park—Winter Haven, Fl & Carlsbad, Ca

One thing about visiting LEGOLAND in the summer—it’s hot. Which is why you can take a break from all the minifigure trading and LEGO driving school action to take on the LEGOLAND Water Park. An easy highlight is the Build-a-Raft River, which one-ups most of the other lazy rivers out there with one signature feature: floating bricks. All of the flotation devices have little platforms and as you cruise along the river you can grab the bricks and build! There’s also a splash pad perfect for tots with tiny slides and a shady building area with those giant waterproof bricks. And if you need a break from the more “ridey” parts head to Creative Cove where you can build and race your own boat. The California park also includes the CHIMA Water Park.
