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.

  • LegoLand was cool but wish they had the time to clean it, a lot of the Lego characters where dirty full of bird droppings. Pay more attention to detail, some characters had limbs missing.. it was just...  more »

  • Better than Disneyland!!! I love that the long line rides have shaded areas in the line so that you don't bake in the sun. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The restrooms are always clean and not crowded. Everything in this park was created to put the customer first and to fill in what other parks lack. There is a variety of rides for each level of excitement. It is the perfect park for the whole family. I love that this park is always innovating and changing.
  • Great park for kids! Shorter waiting time for most rides but park has limited attractions than other big name parks. I think it's best for kids that are 15 years old. My 10 and 7 years old kids enjoy it very much but I doubt they will return when they are older. Overall experiences are pleasant and enjoyable.
  • Our first time here loved it enjoyed it customer service is amazing. So much to do games rides food and the best thing that she like was an aquarium. Everybody wishing her a happy birthday you guys are awesome keep on doing great job. Can't wait to go back
  • Visited Legoland during the Christmas holidays. I was expecting it to be crowded but the crowd management by the staff is very poor. The rides are more kids oriented. Kids do enjoy the rides but the duration of the rides is very less. There are more restaurants/food joints in the park than rides and the mediocre food served is very expensive. It clearly shows that they actual intent is to mint money by selling food and merchandise rather than improving the rides and managing the crowd. I would like to mention about the Ninjago ride at the end. They term it as 4D but it is no where close to being 4D. If anyone has done 4D rides in universal studios then they'll know what actual 4d rides are like. I had high expectations from Legoland considering the ticket prices and parking charges but it not worth at all. If at all someone wants to fully enjoy the park, please don't come during peak season. Come during Summers so that you can enjoy the water park as well which is otherwise closed in Winters. Just my 2 cents.
  • Great place for family getaway with younger kids without breaking the bank. All of the rides are kids friendly, and most do not have huge lines like you find at Disneyland. The themed Legoland hotel is quite amusing especially for first time visitors. Even the elevators are lit with disco ball and music. Hotel quiet period starts at 10pm, so kids can sleep peacefully. The staff here is also super friendly, with music, dance, and story telling every night.
