Gardaland has announced some of the exciting attractions that will feature in its new Lego-themed waterpark – Legoland Water Park Gardaland.

The Lego River Adventure will flow through most of the waterpark, allowing visitors to navigate the park on customisable rafts made by guests out of large, soft, floating Lego bricks.

The river will flow past a series of attractions, including a cave with undersea theming and the Miniland area adorned in iconic Italian monuments made from Lego bricks.

Other notable attractions include the Beach Party children’s play area with colourful slides and water cannons, the Lego Creation island where young guests can have fun building personalised Lego boats, and Duplo Splash where little ones can experience their first water slide.

Legoland Water Park Gardaland will also be home to Jungle Adventure slides, the Pirate Bay swimming pool, the Legoland shop selling all the favourite Lego merchandise and the Harbour Restaurant where guests can refresh themselves for more water-filled fun.

Commenting on the attractions, Luca Marigo, director of sales and marketing at Gardaland, said: “Legoland Water Park Gardaland will have so many attractions that visitors will be thrilled, whether young or old.

“There will also be special themed areas, with lots of colourful water slides for youngsters and kids of all ages, as well as a creative area where children can discover the fun of building with Duplo and Lego bricks, swimming pools equipped with sunbeds, deck chairs and large gazeboes where families can relax.”

Legoland Water Park Gardaland is to open on May 28, 2020.



Plans have been announced for a £75m waterpark and luxury spa to be constructed in Bournemouth, which would be the largest indoor waterpark in the UK.

The Elysium Bournemouth waterpark will be able to accommodate over 4,000 visitors each day and will attract more than 1 million guests annually.

The site will stretch over 75 acres not far from Bournemouth, Poole, New Forest and Christchurch. The indoor waterpark will have a tropical paradise theme and will be located inside one of the UK’s largest free-standing glass domes.

Technology is planned to be at the heart of Elysium Bournemouth, with attractions equipped with virtual reality and augmented reality. The resort will also be home to transparent flumes.

Asides a high-tech waterpark, the site will feature a luxury wellness and beauty spa with a sauna, message, hammam spas and beauty treatments.

There will also be outdoor nature attractions at the waterpark, with a lake, country garden, outdoor seating and nature walks.

There may also be a hotel and eco lodges enabling guests to stay overnight at the new waterpark and luxury spa resort.

Costa Acodrinesei, founder of Elysium Waterpark, commented:

“This is something very spectacular, it’s a very big vision but I know we can do it.

“I want it to be something for the whole community and for everyone to get behind it.”
