German term or phrase: Laguna-Badeland
Found in Weil am Rhein. Could Laguna actually be Lagune? Bathing in lagunas?

English translation:Laguna waterfun
Explanation:
I confer with msems that Laguna needs to remain. The URL of the place will tell you that it is a proper name. The place is an indoor water fun park.

laguna


Explanation:
I would leave the term Laguna as is.
Badeland-I would translate prob. as
1. Swimmers' Paradise
2. Bathers' Paradise
in order that it sounds more "spiffy"

Good luck,
Lis

P.S. in Muret-Sanders "Bade-" is translated with swimming/swimmer-+
"land" can also be translated as "resort"

it's a theme park


Explanation:
I'd leave the name in German and add brief explanation that it's a theme park. In the US, there's a number of theme parks called "Waterworld" with all sorts of pools, water slides, etc. This is similar.
