The 150-acre interactive LEGOLAND theme park features more than 50 rides, shows and attractions, restaurants, shops, the LEGOLAND Florida Water Park, two hotels, a beach retreat and a botanical garden.
From the LEGO wave pool to the interactive water-play structures of Joker Soaker and DUPLO Safari, your kids will soak up tons of fun. But there is more to do than splash and spray at LEGOLAND Florida Resort. At Build-A-Raft River, you can imagine, design and build your own unique vessel before taking it along the 1,000-foot-long lazy river.

Here, kids can build their own LEGO-sized boat and earn boasting rights after racing their creation against friends and family.
