LEGOLAND California, Carlsbad

(3.5/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Work out when and for how long to visit LEGOLAND California and other Carlsbad attractions using our handy Carlsbad tour planner.

  • My son Freedom and I stayed at Legoland for two nights in September of 2016 and had a blast. Great experience for kids and adults alike. They have activities and fun things to do at the hotel including a dance party, show, and evening movie by the pool. The amusement park itself is awesome too. Better hotel events on the weekends. Only thing that would have made it better personally is healthier food with organic and vegetarian options. Highly recommend at least once for those with children 3 - 12 years of age. We will be going back for his birthday!
  • Lego land loses its appeal after the 2nd time you go. If you have younger kids then go. But if your looking for a repeat experience that wows you don't go a second time. Most food is lacking in taste and value. One saving grace is granny apple fries at the back of the park... if you go EAT THESE!!
  • This is a Awesome place for kids and adults to have lots of fun. They have education classes as well using Legos. Suitable for all kind of weather. My kids really love this place. The water park is also Awesome, very well maintained. Good food options as well. Definitely recommend.
  • Had an amazing time with my 2 y.o. He was astounded by the replicas and all of the great choices in rides and attractions. The XBOX experience was fun and entertaining. The cruise was cute and gave you a chance to see the NYC and Mt. Rushmore replicas up close. Great deal at the pizza and pasta buffet. Really large park, some hills and slopes, but stroller and wheelchair accessible.
  • Awesome place for families with young kids!!! Visiting in October - such a nice cool weather and the park is not overcrowded. It's our first time with kids ages 4 and 6, lots of fun, excitement and imagination building activities and rides. The wait is pretty short. We love it!! The food is gourmet here, try the Garden Restaurant sandwiches.
