Legoland Florida gives opening date for all-new ‘Pirate River Quest’

WINTER HAVEN, Fla. – Legoland Florida’s all-new attraction, “Pirate River Quest” will open to guests on Jan. 12, the resort announced on Tuesday.

During the attraction, captain-driven boats will navigate guests through the natural passageways of Lake Eloise and the historic Cypress Gardens.

“The quest to uncover the lost treasure of Captain Redbeard of this family-friendly boat ride unfolds brick by brick with a variety of exciting sequences that tell the tale of a rowdy Lego pirate crew, a troop of mischievous monkeys and even a fearsome kraken,” Legoland said in a news release. “With the debut of Pirate River Quest, the Resort has set the course for family fun.”

The attraction was set to open this fall, but the resort said the canals saw record-breaking water levels due to Hurricane Ian.

“Pirate River Quest” will open before the resort welcomes back its popular event, Pirate Fest Weekends. Starting on January 21, families will enjoy pirate-packed days of play, including exclusive character meet-and-greets, exciting entertainment, LEGO builds, and specialty food.

The theme park invites fans to “join the crew” with the introduction of an all-new fleet of annual passes, starting at less than $13 per month after a small down payment.
