New Interactive Water Playground Opening Just In Time For The Hottest Days Of Summer

GRAPEVINE, Texas, June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Debuting August 2014, Pirate Beach will make a big splash at LEGOLAND Discovery Center Dallas/Fort Worth, just in time for the Texas summer heat.

Geared towards children ages three to 10, the new water playground features more than 30 interactive gadgets pumping and spraying thousands of gallons of water.  Located outdoors near the LEGO City: Forest Ranger Pursuit ride, the 10,000-square-foot addition is the 12th permanent attraction in LEGOLAND Discovery Center Dallas/Fort Worth, and the second added in the last two years.

"Pirate Beach has three things we know will be a hit with children: pirates, LEGO bricks and water," said Iain Scouller, Regional General Manager LEGOLAND Discovery Center.  "This exciting addition to our rapidly growing attraction is the first water playground of it's kind at any LEGOLAND Discovery Center in the world."

Structured after a shipwrecked pirate vessel, Pirate Beach's central feature is a playground where kids can navigate through water jets and fountains, squirt cannons and splash down water slides. Looming at the top of the 20-foot-tall mast is a 50-gallon bucket poised to dump water on guests every few minutes.  Throughout Pirate Beach, guests will also encounter over 12 interactive models and a soft play area that include pirates, cannons, treasure chests, palm trees and sand castles.

Bring your buccaneers, bathing suits, towels, change of clothes and prepare for fun…if ye dare!
