The first ever Legoland water park will open in Europe later this year.

Legoland fans rejoice, because an incredible new water park is launching complete with rides and attractions.

Opening its doors on May 28, Legoland has given a sneak peek as to what families can expect from the adventure island which is located in theme park Gardaland, near Lake Garda in Italy.

Lucky holidaymakers can relax on the Lego River Adventure, which is a river flowing through the park, in rafts they have built from Lego bricks.

There’s also a ‘Beach Party’ area complete with colourful slides, water cannons and a drench bucket.
