Legoland California today revealed details about its new water park, which will open to the public this June 10. In addition, the park announced that it will debut a new 4D movie in its Lego Show Place theater, replacing the long-running Racers 4D show.

The new Legoland Water Park will be a $10 add-on for Legoland visitors, although admission to the park will be included free of charge to annual passholders. Park-hopper tickets, including the Sea Life aquarium, also will be available. The water park's entrance will be in the Fun Town section of the park, next to the Adventurer's Club. (There's be a rock climbing wall in that area, in the past.)

The five-and-a-half-acre water park will feature a five-story Lego tower, from which visitors can ride a six-person raft slide or single-person tube and body slides. There also will be a waterfall, a lazy river and a toddler play area.

Lazy river riders will be able to "build" their own Lego rafts, selecting large, soft Lego-style "bricks" to attach to their rafts.

Premiering March 19, 2010, the 10-minute A Clutch Powers 4-D Adventure film introduces Clutch Powers, a new Lego character who is "the best builder and explorer in the Lego universe," according to Legoland's press release. The film will replace Racers 4-D in the rotation at the Lego Show Place theater, playing daily in rotation with Spellbreaker 4-D and Bob the Builder In 4-D: Bob the Builder and the Roller Coaster.

I love the build-your-own raft concept, but the park looks awfully small, more like another land than a water park.

Never been to legoland but, from what i have hear its a very small park. I can't believe that the waterpark is a separate gate.

Actually, Legoland's not that small physically, and has many more attractions than, say, Islands of Adventure. And at $10 extra, I think that the Legoland water park probably ought to be compared more with the rock wall and bungee-type extra-charge attractions offered at many parks rather than as a separate gated park.

Does anyone know if the existing "water-park type" attractions that exist in the Pirates area will be eliminated or incorporated into this new park?
This is interesting since Legoland already has an upcharge minuature golf course.
