LEGOLAND Florida DELAYS Pirate River Quest Opening & Launches Hurricane Ian Relief Effort

Updated: Nov 1, 2022

LEGOLAND Florida have revealed that due to damage sustained in the theme park when Hurricane Ian tore through Florida last week, they are having to delay the opening of their latest attraction, Pirate River Quest.

LEGOLAND Florida’s anticipated, all-new ride, Pirate River Quest which was due to open in November, will now open in early 2023.

The canals of Cypress Gardens, along with the Chain of Lakes and Peace River, have seen record-breaking water levels this year which have impacted the attraction’s intended launch date.

This captain-driven boat ride will navigate the natural passageways of Lake Eloise and the historic Cypress Gardens.

In this family-friendly boat ride, the quest to uncover the lost treasure of Captain Redbeard 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.

At the same time as announcing the delay, the park also launched a Hurricane Ian recovery effort for those impacted by the storm that recently devastated portions of Florida.

Now through this Sunday, Oct. 9th, $20 from every LEGOLAND® Theme Park ticket sold on LEGOLAND Florida's website will be donated to the American Red Cross to help support Hurricane Ian relief efforts up to a maximum of $100,000.

This donation will enable the American Red Cross to prepare for, respond to and help people recover from this disaster.

LEGOLAND Florida Resort also thanked their employees who helped with park clean-up efforts and the heroes across the state who are helping communities rebuild.
