Create an itinerary including LEGOLAND California
Build your own Lego experience at LEGOLAND California, a theme park opened in 1999. Modeled on the original Lego-based park in Denmark, this venue was the first of its kind outside of Europe. Divided into several themed sections created entirely out of the Lego brand's popular building blocks, the park offers about 60 rides and attractions, designed primarily with children under 12 in mind. Young visitors can spend hours immersed in the Lego fantasy world of the play areas and wave pools, or take roller coaster and boat rides through models of medieval castles and islands populated by giant dinosaur toys. Older visitors can explore over a dozen restaurants, with menus covering everything from light snacks to gourmet meals for the health-conscious.

  • It’s a great place but not sure how families can afford it. Not only are tickets expensive they then charge to park

  • First time visiting, and extremely happy! Very clean, very friendly staff, not over priced for food or souvenirs. Park is on the smaller side but it is geared towards younger children so it was great. Never waited more than 20min for any ride. The amount of detail is absolutely insane! From the mini city to random pigeons and ducks and creatures throughout the park it was great! The kids had a blast, they were excited to see the blocks come to life, and were able to ride just about everything. You can also get wet on the splash pads. Park closes early but we had more than enough time to do everything we wanted and a little more. Well definitely be back!
  • Took the kids here for spring break and it was awesome! The hotel has packages that include park entry. They also can sell you the mini figure (which you can trade with any employee). We went on a Wednesday and Thursday and it wasn’t that busy. I’d avoid Friday through Sunday. The Friday we left it was as busy as we’d seen it. All the rides were fun and we never waited more that 30 mins. While they allow some food and drinks be prepared to buy food in the park. And as expected it’s $15+ per entree. Park closes at 5pm so plan accordingly. But if you are going to go stay at the hotel, it’s right at the entrance, breakfast is included too. Plus they have a bunch of Lego areas for the kids to build. A lot of entertainment and stuff after hours at the hotels too.
