PirateCaptains2LEGOLAND California’s newest attraction offers a cool, swashbuckling adventure to splash into this summer. Opening May 25, Pirate Reef takes the park’s water rides to new heights onboard a 20-person boat that plunges 25 feet between two 40-foot long pirate ships.

But beware mateys, Pirate Reef and the adjacent LEGOLAND Water Park will both be closed May 29 and 30 for filming. They reopen June 1. Expect to get wet on Pirate Reef! People standing on the two massive ships – each 20 feet high – will be blasting you with water from canons before you even splash down at ride’s end. But now it’s your turn to board a ship and drench boat passengers as well as each other with water cannons.

Pirate Reef also features a splash bridge (sure to leave guests soaked), a pirate themed brick-building play area and more than 30 pirate themed LEGO® models including Captain Red Brick, Captain Blue Brick, pirates, monkeys, parrots and more. Pirate Reef is the first attraction to be accessible through Pirate Shores and the LEGOLAND Water Park

Admission:  $72 adults, $62 ages 3 – 12. For more information, visit www.legoland.com.
