Theme Park
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.

  • I visited the Legoland theme park during a weekday in the month of May this place is awesome! I took my nephew and he really enjoyed his time there there is lots to do and it is very clean overall. Aside from the admission ticket I Also bought the reserve n ride deluxe pass which was absolutely worth it! If you don't come here very often it cuts the wait time in half and you can reserve ride ahead of time while on another ride so it saved us tons of time I would recommend to purchase the deluxe pass so you're not stuck waiting in line for 20 30 minutes even though the lines were not too bad compared to Disneyland it was still worth the money, and of course you can't beat the dirty looks people will give you when you come up the reserve n ride line lol. In conclusion it's a great place to take your kids and the best age group for this park in my opinion is from 5 years old to 8 years old they will have a blast and so will you! One last thing the food was great and not to pricey so come hungry as well!
  • Was great experience with our 2 and 10 year old. liked how park was laid out for enjoyment for both boys. for larger rides their was usually a play area for our 2 year old. lots of cool sights and rides. also liked how the park had a very green approach to plant selections and water conservation. Was pretty amazed at how clean the park was. The water park was equally as fun as the main park.
  • Fun for the Everyone! The food was great and well priced. The park is easy to navigate and filled with things to find. Definitely more than a day's work. The service was friendly, capable, and fast! This is our second time. We came for 4 days last time (and park-hopped). This time, we came for my son's 6th birthday, stayed in the hotel and got the birthday package. It was the best way to spend it!
  • Fun for the family. They have some rides, nothing extreme, but mildly exhilarating for adults. The park is for kids and does a good job of catering to their target demographic. The Lego cities they've built and star wars scenes they've recreated are awesome! My 18 year old enjoyed those greatly. All in all, I have a 6 year old,11 year old, and 18 year old, and each one had a good time. Will be going back next year to see the new castle hotel they're building. On a side note, I didn't stay at the Legoland hotel, as rooms were quoted to me at $600+ per night and were solidly booked up.
  • It was okay for my three year old. Parking options were great, lines weren't that long but you still had to walk through the whole queue. There really wasn't much my short 3 yr old could do, so maybe another visit will warrant another review when he's able to enjoy the full park.
