The iconic brick was placed during an entertainment ceremony, attended by Gardaland’s CEO, Aldo Maria Vigevani, Luca Marigo, Gardaland’s sales and marketing director, and Prezzemolo, Italy’s much-loved mascot.
Young journalists from the ‘Kids Reporters’ also attended the ceremony, taking part in a TV report to inform about the latest innovations of the new Legoland Waterpark.
Aldo Maria Vigevani, commented on the ceremony:
“This is an important day because we are starting to lay the foundations of a project that has been underway for three years already. With an estimated investment sum of 20 million euros, Legoland Waterpark at Gardaland will open in June 2020, covering an area of 15,000 square metres to the joy of countless young families, both Italian and from abroad.”
The waterpark will be home to a diverse range of attractions and activities for all ages, enabling children to have fun and great creative at the same time.
As Luca Marigo says:
“It will be a fantastic water park, constructed with millions of colourful Lego bricks, where children over 2 years old can have fun, unique Lego building experiences and interactive games, while parents can relax in the luscious green nature.
“Thanks to this great new addition to the park, there will be even more ways to have fun, making Gardaland the perfect destination for families of all ages, where they can enjoy days packed with even more adventure, magic and fantasy,” Marigo added.
The 15,000 square waterpark will open in June 2020.
Gardaland’s Legoland Waterpark is Europe’s first Lego-themed waterpark and only the fifth of its kind in the world. Other Lego waterparks can be found in California, Florida, Dubai and Malaysia.
