LEGOLAND California, Carlsbad

3.5
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.

  • No issues with anything super easy to find someone great help no lines foods pricey but I’d rather pay those prices then go to Disneyland anyday  more »
  • FYI! Be careful when giving your card upfront. I paid my entire hotel fees and tickets weeks prior to our stay (not cheap). During the second day Legoland Resort, Legoland made multiple transactions t...  more »
  • This trip was a field trip for 7th & 8th graders to the Robotics Lab. Our instructor was great (and patient). The students all had a great time programming the challenge board! I highly recommend it. ...  more »

  • My kids had a blast, and so did we! The place is very clean, has a super-friendly staff and has a fantastic presentation; really well done. Renata at the Lego Factory tour made my son's whole day. We took him there to celebrate his birthday (flew in from NJ) and she gave the full VIP treatment. She created a memory for my family that we'll never forget. Make sure to arrive early if you can - the park fills up fast and the rides can have quite the wait.
  • This amusement park has something for everyone. The whole family enjoys visiting. The disabled services make our whole time a pleasant experience, for without them we probably wouldn't be able to go on rides. The employees are friendly and helpful. The food options are pretty decent too. My kid loves the main park and the water park. Thumbs up!
  • They Care. They are happy to see everyone. They can't make the lines go faster, but they can help you find a place to have fun with the time you have there. Bring your kids. They WILL have great fun. For adults there is a couple places in the park that serves beer. Who knows, you might just have as much fun as your kids.
  • Great customer service! Not overly crowded. Great for families. ADA accessible. Lots of autistic friendly, calm areas. Hotel has Legos build with and dance party that's open to everyone. Breastfeeding friendly. Baby and mother friendly just not for rides. Only 2 rides an infant under 30 inches can go on and 1 the child has to be able to sit in a seat alone. My boy is 18 months but very small, 29 inches. He walks and sits alone. Once they are 30 inches they can go on 3 rides and 34 inches there are several more. Gift shops are everywhere with Lego sets that don't cost more than other places. Other items are up priced but not unaffordable. Also, season passes are a great deal and offer discounts and a guest pass and can include parking.
  • Facilities great, plenty of free things for the kids to do from little toddler to preteen, very clean, food is reasonable prices compared to the other entertainment parks in the area. Burgers were very very good at the place near the driver's license ride. They charge for parking. Checked bags for food, but didn't seem to mind if you brought food. Building a new Lego castle hotel and I can't wait to see that when it is done!

Where to stay in Carlsbad

Accommodations in Carlsbad run the gamut from quaint bed and breakfasts to five-star luxury resorts. You can stay in the heart of the action by booking a room downtown, where you'll be near the beach and have access to the city's most popular bars and restaurants.
