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.

  • The location is at Legoland which can't get any closer. The room was a complimentary room with the purchase of season passes. We will definitely be back. The price is worth the service. The kids loved the room decor. There was a safe in the room the kids were able to find the code and get gifts. The bedding was very comfortable. When we ordered dinner, the staff went over and beyond. The line started to get backed up and a manager assisted with taking orders. Since it was a school day we went, by the time we made it Legoland park was closed. I was afraid the kids wouldn't enjoy themselves, but there was so much the kids could do. There was a playground, movies, the pool, and entertainment available. We went as soon as breakfast started the next morning and there was a short line. The options were huge and the food was good. We also were able to get early entry into the park to ride a few rides. We will definitely return.
  • Have 3 and 5 year old. Kids loved it. Stayed 2 days and it wasn't enough to do everything. Water park was great. Forced breaks so that hopefully kids use the bathroom instead of just peeing in the pools (I think it worked as it was the cleanest smelling water park I've been to). Rooms were nice. Air conditioning worked great. Food was reasonably priced and good for a park. The package was a great deal. Well worth the extra couple of hundred I would have saved by staying outside.
  • Just went with my best friends and their kids. My nephew is two and a half and he loved it - but there's a strong possibility his dad and I loved it even more! Having grown up with Lego, I was just excited to be around all of the amazing creations. I also loved that everything is painted in bold, bright colors, just like the toys. Not as big as Disney so I didn't get sore after walking the park, either! We did the aquarium and it was absolutely stunning. I loved it all. Downsides - can't take food or drink into buildings. I understand why, but trying to juggle two small kids around in the heat without being able to go inside was difficult. Also, there aren't many rides available, and fewer for small kids. For that reason, we only went on two. My favorite thing though was just that the atmosphere was much more relaxed and the crowds were way smaller than Disney, which we visited the day before. Well done!
  • I was skeptical as my son is 10. I was worried he would be too old to enjoy the park. He had a blast. The staff was friendly the park was clean and the food was great. The park kept his attention the whole time. We easily spent the entire open to close day there and still feel like we could have gone and done even more.
  • Very kid friendly. Limited eatery choices however the buffet is excellent. The themed rooms are brilliant. The daily treasure hunt is a fantastic idea which the kids loved. All the staff were 100% friendly and on point with customer service. If you and/or your kids love Lego you cannot miss out on this place.
