QUIKRETE® Base Coat Stucco - Pump Grade used in the LEGO® World of Chima™
By Chad Corley
LEGOLAND® Florida is a 150-acre, full-day theme park in Central Florida featuring more than 50 family rides, shows, restaurants, shops, botanical gardens and other attractions. Opened in October 2011 as one of five LEGOLAND® Parks in the world, LEGOLAND® Florida recently added the LEGO® World of Chima™ interactive water ride, which used QUIKRETE® Base Coat Stucco - Pump Grade in its construction.
The sub-contractor, Chemrock chose the QUIKRETE® material because it was easily sculpted and molded on mesh frames to create realistic stalactites and rocks along the powerful, cavernous water ride. In addition, Chemrock found the QUIKRETE® Base Coat Stucco - Pump Grade to pump exceptionally well so work could be done quickly and efficiently on schedule.
Families visiting the park now enjoy a trip through the cartoon World of Chima™ armed with water cannons in an epic adventure to help the hero, Laval the Lion Prince defeat Cragger the Crocodile King in his quest to find the mystical energy source, CHI.
QUIKRETE® Base Coat Stucco - Pump Grade is a pumpable, high workability plaster particularly
designed for spray applications. It is a fiber reinforced Portland cement based stucco, designed to
be used as the scratch and/or brown coat in a 3-ooat stucco application, or the first coat in a 2-ooat
