LEGOLAND Florida is getting ready to reveal its first major expansion later this week. The World of Chima is a tie-in to the new Cartoon Network animated series LEGO Legends of Chima. This video shows some of the final stages of construction focusing on a dramatic “floating” centerpiece, called Mount Cavora. The installation, which will tower 55 feet above the attraction, marks the final major construction milestone ahead of the area’s July 3 opening.

Mount Cavora, based on The LEGO Legends of Chima storyline, is a mystical floating mountain that provides animals with the energy source CHI via its waterfalls. The attraction structure will cascade water into the interactive splash-battle family ride, The Quest for CHI, soaking everyone below. The Quest for CHI will be one of three new attractions at LEGOLAND Florida when The World of Chima opens July 3.

Mount Cavora Fun Facts:

  • The Mount Cavora ‘rock’ weighs 7,500 lbs; more than a large SUV!
  • The structure will pump 1,000 gallons of water/minute onto the ride path
  • The structure features the faces of the animal tribes represented in the Legends of Chima product storyline
  • The Mount Cavora ‘rock’ measures 40-foot wide by 23-foot high, but will tower 55 feet above The Quest for Chi, an immersive family water ride

Do you have LEGO fans in your house hold? What do they think of the new Legends of Chima stories? Are they looking forward to a future visit to LEGOLAND Florida?
