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.

  • Our favorite part was doing the treasure hunt with our 4 year grandson. He loved the playgrounds and just exploring the hotel.

  • Very nice place. My kids had a great time so we went 2 days. If you have that option, then I suggest it because you probably won't do the whole park in a day. It was very clean. The food was actually pretty good. Typical amusement park prices so expect to pay a little extra. You can bring snacks and water. The 3D (or 4D) shows are very funny so make sure to check them out. I was very disappointed that they don't have the Star Wars display anymore (no fault of theirs, $#&*@?# Disney!). We didn't stay at the hotel so I can't say anything about that. You do have to pay for parking. I suggest getting there before it opens so you don't have to wait too long for parking. And definitely get your tickets in advance.
  • Had a decent the today with my young kids. Park is aimed for kids ( I would say 5-10). Fun atmosphere. My daughter and son loved driving school. Park was fairly clean. The wait times were longer than posted. Food lines were long. Not a lot of sitting areas once you got your food. My biggest and probably only complaint was how slow the ride lines moved. We spent a lot of time waiting in lines. Most rides have a fairly low throughput (maybe 100 - 200 people per hour at best). The splash battle took 45 minutes when there was only 40 people in front of us.
  • I went here 3 years ago and it is was amazing. They had everything I hoped for. They had amazing rides and even ones for the little ones. My experience was amazing. The place can be really crowded but the lines tend to move quicker. Make sure to stop by the water park area if your warm. It was this little boys birthday and they took the time to sing to him. Thanks for making my experience amazing. This was a fun family vacation for us and our close friends.
  • Me and my family love going here. We have season passes so we go a lot. Customer service is mostly good, but isn’t always. The reservation system was hard to figure out, but I eventually figured it out. The people who work there are very friendly and helpful. I love all of the rides as well. Legoland is for all ages, which I love. Their aquarium is spectacular. It’s so beautiful and very cool.
  • It was my first time staying at their hotel. I have to say I was a little worried because of all the bad reviews I had read from previous customers. But to my surprise everything went well. We checked in and they had our room ready right away. The next day we visited the park and was a nice experience. All the rides were open and some had pretty long wait times but overall was great. The only reason I’m giving it 4 stars is because the Drangons Den breakfast service was really slow. Specially when getting your drinks. Spent an hour just waiting in line to check in and to grab the food. They need to be more organized in that area. Other than that, the room was clean we were even able to get a microwave into out room. Valet/Bell service was great. We will definitely visit again soon.
