Grapevine, Texas is home to LEGOLAND Discovery Center, and the perfect summer attraction is now open: Pirate Beach!
The Pirate Beach splash pad is included with admission to LEGOLAND Discovery Center and provides a whole new level of fun. After checking out all of the fun rides and exhibits inside, we took it outside to cool off from the rising temperatures outside.
Be sure to bring a swimsuit, towel, and sunscreen to enjoy this water playground.
Geared towards children ages three to 10, it features 30 interactive gadgets pumping and spraying thousands of gallons of water. It looks like a shipwrecked pirate vessel. Pirate Beach’s central feature is a playground where your kids are able to navigate through water jets and fountains, squirt cannons and splash down water slides.
At the top of the 20-foot-tall mast is a 50-gallon bucket just waiting to dump water on guests every couple of minutes. There are 12 interactive models and a soft play area with pirates, cannons, treasure chests, palm trees and sand castles. By the way, there are lots of HUGE LEGO blocks for kids to continue their love for building right out there in the splash pad.
There are plenty of changing rooms, and there are also restrooms available.
There are even lockers to rent if you need a secure place to store your things. This makes running around in the water with the kiddos a lot more carefree!
We appreciated the covered seating available as well. We were able to enjoy a snack in the shade of a table umbrella, which was a great way to end our visit.
Be sure to get out there and enjoy the fun and excitement all summer long before the water playground closes for the fall season.
As a little side note, if you did forget something essential (like a swim suit or a towel), there is a great little stand available outside where you can purchase these items. You can also grab a tasty ice cream treat or refreshing Fruit Shoot while you’re there.
*Thank you to LEGOLAND Discovery Center for inviting my family out to try out Pirate Beach. We loved it!
