Legoland Florida Opens Brickbeard’s Watersports Stunt Show – Trip Report

We were invited out by Legoland Florida to check out their brand new Brickbeard’s Watersports Stunt Show, which takes off this weekend as part of the Pirate Fest Weekends. Of course we couldn’t go to Legoland without checking out some of our favorite rides there as well!

This was our first visit back to Legoland Florida since the temporary covid-19 closure and we had a marvelous time. The resort is in great shape, the social distance markers and mask signs are to be found everywhere and thus we felt quite safe. It was good to be back!

The main reason we made it to Legoland Florida was for the brand new Brickbeard’s Watersports Stunt Show! This park has an impressive background as the birthplace of waterskiing for sport, and is home to the inventions of many world famous waterski acrobatics such as waterski jumps and waterski pyramids. Despite Legoland (Merlin Entertainment) being a different company that acquired the park later, it’s wonderful that waterskiing continues to live on at this historic site. This action-packed show takes a comedic approach and was very enjoyable. The show features special effects, great actors, and lots of stunts of course. The show is hosted on a lake towards the back of the park, helpful signs and floor markings assist guests in finding the show! Definitely worth checking out!

Right next door to the world famous ski stadium, there’s the original Cypress Gardens (added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2014). This original part of the park is the botanical gardens, which opened in 1936 and was built as Florida’s first commercial theme park. The park had a heavy focus on water skiing as the founder of Cypress Gardens was Dick Pope Sr., a highly accomplished athlete that helped popularize water skiing. Hence the classic waterski stadium located right by the gardens. You can click on each image and swipe to take a closer look!

This sprawling Legoland park, the 2nd largest Legoland in the World, is also home to a water park, reclaimed and remastered when Merlin Entertainment acquired the property. My favorite thing is the sheer amount of Legos flowing through the lazy river. The water park is also home to a nice mix of attractions including a large Splash Island, Lazy River, Wave Pool, and three tall body slides.

While we just popped in to get some pictures of the water park, there was one attraction that we thoroughly enjoyed! You can make your own Lego ships and then race them down an obstacle course of water. We had the greatest time and this can’t be missed. You can click on each image and swipe to take a closer look!

As the Coaster Kings we also appreciate how many coasters this particular Legoland has. Home to four major family coasters, including a wooden coaster, this park makes for a great time for guests of every age. The park is also home to a fun collection of dark rides such as Lost Kingdom Adventure, Lego’s Ninjago, and Masters of Flight!
