Legoland California today announced its new ride for summer 2012, Pirate Reef, a shoot-the-chutes ride that will stand between the park's Pirate Shores area and the Legoland Water Park. The new splash ride will be accessible to visitors from both parks.

Legoland California Project Designer Lindsay Burroughs explains the new ride in this video from the park:

In addition, Legoland California will expand the Star Wars section of Miniland, adding additional elements to existing scenes and creating a gallery of famous Star Wars characters. If you've not yet seen Star Wars Miniland, we posted a gallery of up-close images to Theme Park Insider's Facebook page during the park's Lego Star Wars Day last summer.

"The new splash ride will be accessible to visitors from both parks."

I wonder how the guests will be separated especially since the water park is a separate admission. Will there be two queue lines and rides where one side is very wet and the other side is less wet?
