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.

  • Great place! Awesome place to take kids of "any" age! Wide variety of things to do like look at amazing sculptures and ride some awesome rides! Recommend it to anyone on a holiday or just looking for something to do! Better than Disney because it is a lot smaller and park is much better look after. It is worth every cent!
  • LOVE this place. It's amazing! Beautiful. Well kept. A blast for the kids. We went to Disneyland earlier this week. After day one my kids just wanted to go home and cried when I told them we were going back. After leaving Legoland they can't wait to go back and were sad to leave. Good thing we have a three day passes. They all agree. Better than Disneyland. There is more for them to do and the lines weren't nearly as long. It wasn't too crowded (it did rain today so that may play into it a bit) There isn't much in the thrill category but I like it that way. It's geared towards kids 3-12 and it is perfect if you have kids in that range. We brought the grandparents and they enjoyed going on rides with the little ones as did we. Thanks for a perfect day Legoland. Good food. The staff are all pretty great. If you have kids 3-12 skip Disneyland and come here. Seriously. Tip: check hours. We were sad it closes at 5 I the spring but we get it. Just plan to arrive right at opening so you can have plenty of time :)
  • Took our 4yo daughter here and had a blast! Certainly a kid friendly place with a lot to do. Too much to see and do in just one day, but you can upgrade your ticket to come back the next day for cheap! The Lego exhibits were amazing and the rides were fun. Lastly, the food was impressive for a theme park! Lots of good healthy choices. Definitely worth the trip.
  • Went back in late March just before spring break and my kids absolutely loved it! The weather was perfect and the lines were short. My 3 and 7 yr old had a blast! I love how there are rides for all ages and My son really enjoyed trading figures at the trading posts. He was ear to ear with a smile the whole time. It was a memorable experience and we will be back this summer!
  • Have to say this was very kid friendly. We have children who are normally non riders but all the rides made them feel safe to where they rode all of them! Ages 8-12 and they never got bored. Very fun for the whole family. We were able to ride with them and it made our visit that much better. No restrictions on adults having fun with their children. Best day ever at a theme park😀
