The boat ride, set to travel through the park’s Lake Eloise and Cypress Gardens area, was originally scheduled to debut Nov. 2. But because of record water levels in the waterways along the park, park officials decided to delay the attraction.

“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,” the Winter Haven theme park said in a news release.

The new opening timeline is also visible on the Legoland Florida website.

Pirate River Quest will feature a storyline that has riders in search of Captain Redbeard’s lost treasure. As their captain-driven boat makes its way through the canals of Lake Eloise and Cypress Gardens, riders will encounter a crew of rowdy Lego pirates, a troop of mischievous monkeys and a kraken.

The attraction will also feature the pirate Calico Jade.

Pirate River Quest was first announced in 2021 during Legoland Florida’s 10th anniversary celebration.
