Top Ways to Get Wet at LEGOLAND Florida
There is nothing like the thrills of a water park to get you screaming and keep you cool from the Orlando heat, but you don’t always have to go to a water park to experience thrills and chills. In fact, LEGOLAND Florida can satisfy your water park adventure with several rides and attractions that are sure to get you soaked and feeling refreshed. Here are the top ways to get wet at LEGOLAND Florida:
Aquazone Wave Racers – Aquazone Wave Racers doesn’t hesitate to throw you right into the water. This speedy attraction lets riders zip in and out of waves as they try and dodge water blasters. You’re sure to get wet on this dual water carousel in no time!
Chima – There is much to see and do at the new World of Chima, but if your main focus is getting wet, don’t hesitate to head immediately to The Quest for CHI. This interactive water ride will take you on an epic adventure where you will try and recover the mystical energy source, CHI. In doing so you will use your water cannons to stop Cragger the Crocodile King as well as other creatures. And because everybody is spraying water to defeat Cragger, The Quest for CHI is one of the wettest rides in LEGOLAND Florida.
Miniland U.S.A. – This popular area of LEGOLAND Florida doesn’t appear to have any water features, but when you take a closer look, there are several buttons you can push at the different cities that will interact with the scenes. Some of these interactive buttons will shoot out water in different areas. You have to play around with a few to find the ones that spray water but that’s part of the fun!
Live Water Ski Show – Over at Pirate’s Cove, guests can enjoy the Live Water Ski Show, where swashbuckling pirates have taken over Lake Eloise in a live action, water-stunt show. Watch as these scurvy pirates perform incredible tricks on the water, and if you’re lucky, you’ll feel a few splashes from their water adventures.
Water Park – We can’t talk about getting wet at LEGOLAND Florida without talking about LEGOLAND Water Park. It is a WATER park after all! And, boy, does it have some good splashes! Splash Out, for example is a slide ride where you can choose from one of three slides and speed to the bottom at 60 miles per hour! There is also the DUPLO Splash Safari where toddlers can get in on the water action with shorter slides and interactive DUPLO creatures. Joker Soaker will do the job of getting you wet with a 300-gallon bucket, various sides and a pool to wade in.

Blaze through Sunny Beaches with Orlando Boat Charter Rentals

Food For Thought New Butterbeer Ice Cream at Diagon Alley
If you’ve been to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando there’s a great chance you’ve tried butterbeer. The foamy, creamy concoction is a favorite amongst muggles. It is refreshing on a hot summer day and will make your mouth water no matter the weather. Harry Potter enthusiasts love grabbing a cup of this magical juice just like Harry, Ron and Hermione did in the Harry Potter films and now Universal Studios has taken the recipe one step further and turned it into ice cream!
If you’re in the mood for a sweet treat on your next trip to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley, make sure you head to Florean Fortescue’s Ice-Cream Parlour. You may recognize this ice cream shop from its prominent appearance in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Here Hagrid bought Harry a chocolate and raspberry ice-cream with chopped nuts. Now you can get a taste of that delicious treat as well as many other unique flavors, like Butterbeer. In fact, this spot is the only place that serves Butterbeer ice-cream in Diagon Alley. The dense and perfectly sweet treat is delicious and some even like it better than the Butterbeer drinks.
Similar to the drinks, this ice cream tastes neither like butter nor beer but more like creamy butterscotch. The difference is that it’s ice cream and everybody loves ice cream! The sweet treat comes to you in a cup and has perfect swirls on top, making it look more like a vanilla chocolate swirl than the deliciousness that it is.
In addition to the Butterbeer ice cream, Florean Fortescue’s Ice-Cream Parlour also serves up other delicious soft serve flavors including banana, chocolate, Granny Smith, mint, pistachio, vanilla, orange, marmalade, toffee, toffee apple and strawberries & cream. Their hard pack flavors include chocolate chili, apple crumble, vanilla, salted caramel blonde, chocolate, clotted cream, Earl Grey & Lavender, sticky toffee pudding, chocolate & raspberry and strawberry & peanut-butter.
For a taste of the creamy and full-flavored soft serve ice cream, look for discounted Universal Studios tickets right here on Orlando Fun tickets. And don’t forget to check out the rest of Diagon Alley’s unique treats, drinks and meals.
