First look at world's largest Legoland Water Park
Set to open this fall, it's the kiddy block brand's first water park in Asia
Grab your swimsuits -- the date has been set.
Asia's first Legoland Water Park is due to open in Malaysia on October 21.
With over 20 attractions and 70 models, the 300,000-square-meter space is being touted by officials as the world's largest Legoland Water Park.
As impressive as that sounds, there are only two other Legoland Water Parks in operation.
Both are in the United States -- one in California, the other in Florida.
Apart from the usual water slides and pools, one of the coolest attractions set for the Malaysia park is the "Build-A-Raft River," where kids can put together their own raft made of soft Lego bricks and float down a lazy river.
There will also be a "Joker Soaker," an interactive platform in the wade pool where children can shoot water cannons as a jester tells jokes -- family-friendly ones, we assume -- and 350 gallons of water pour down upon them.
For toddlers, the Duplo-themed play area has smaller slides and characters modeled after those found in Lego sets -- an alligator, polar bear and an elephant.
Aside from attractions, the Legoland Water Park will also have two restaurants, private cabanas for rent and a store.
Now 70% complete, the water park is the latest addition to the Legoland Malaysia Resort, which opened last September in Iskandar.
A hotel, the final phase of the resort, will open in early 2014, say officials.

About 50 kilometers away from central Singapore, the 30-hectare theme park is made up of more than than 50 million bricks and has 40 rides, shows and attractions.
Legoland Malaysia is the sixth theme park for the brand, joining properties in Denmark, England, Germany and two in the United States (Florida and California).
Visitors can access the water park from outside as well as from the theme park but extra tickets are required, say Legoland officials.
Combo tickets for both parks as well as single tickets to the water park will go on sale soon. Ticket prices haven't yet been released.
Teens expecting huge thrills will likely be disappointed. Legoland says the water park is ideal for kids aged 2-12.
