"Great place for kids!"
Reviewed July, 2015
The Legoland California Resort can be packed with people during weekend. Plan for at least 2 days if you are planning to finish all the park. Both of my kids love it and they had a great time. They enjoyed the lego workshop, the rides, the water park (Chima) and the show. My sons watched the showed twice in a day and he can even remembered the scene of the movie. Not all the rides are identical to the one at Florida, i feel that Legoland California has more rides. We went there from the time it opened until it closed. The nice thing is there is a little play area while parents can wait in the line and the kids get to play there so distract them a little bit from waiting in the long line. The aquarium was nice, but it was a bit small since we did not have to spend a lot of time there going through the animals. If you are from out of state, i think the hotel by the Legoland is pretty nice, just a few steps and you will be in the theme park, avoid the hassle of parking and crowd. You could just walk there first thing in the morning, rest in the afternoon if you think it is too hot or tiring and go back anytime you feel like to. My two sons will definitely love to visit it again!!
Tip: Check if rain and the wait time for the ride to plan it accordingly.

"Amazing Spring Break at LEGOLAND"
Reviewed July, 2015
We went to Legoland for Spring Break 2015, My daughter LOVES Legos she has played with them from the time she was 1 years old. So going to Legoland was a no brainer for us. We found Legoland to be clean and way less crowded than Disneyland which was nice. There wasn't any long lines for rides. It was the perfect place for a 5 1/2 yr old. The rides were great for her age and she loved all the little Lego play areas. The Lego statues were amazing! I was so impressed by how elaborate they were and so was my daughter. It gave her even more ideas of what she could build when she got home from vacation. We got there early in the morning around 9:30am and stayed until 6pm. It didn't feel like it was overwhelming at all. The Legoland staff was very helpful and made it a very fun day! We would go back again for sure.
Tip: There is 1 ride that goes through water, you can get drinched. I recommend to bring extra clothes just incase. Great food!

Legoland is fantastic, everything is close by, convenient, great food ( juicy big hamburgers, ribs and chicken, fruit variety) not a lot of walking. My children were so satisfied. 1st for me I wasn't asked to buy them presents at shop, this time I was the kid looking to see what I wanted. Very friendly personal, it was easy to enjoy everything there. Thanks we will be back!
Tip: book online at least two weeks prior and do a 2-day pass, also hotel, be ready to have a blast perfect place for my 3-kids ages 6\9\10 and myself

"More Than Meets the Eye"
Reviewed March, 2015
We should have studied more or read more reviews about this place, We found ourselves hurrying here and there to covering the area. We had areas we wanted to re-visit but ran out of time. We spent precious time checking out areas we did not like as well and wish we knew not to go there when we wanted to re-see other areas.
Tip: Study the areas to see and pick the ones you want most to visit.

"Awesome experience for children and adults"
Reviewed February, 2015
Went to LEGOLAND in 2014 with children and 2 grandchildren 8 &10. It was not our first time there but just as enjoyable as the first visit when grandchildren were much younger, toddler age. Rides were great, hot dogs excellent, and the whole experience totally enjoyable. Brought out the kid in us "older adults".
Tip: Legoland is an enjoyable way young children to experience a theme park without the high energy rides of interest to older children. A great learning experience.

Legoland is great for small children who do not wish to ride typical roller coasters. It was great for my kids (8 and 5) because they do not like fast rides. Win!

Took my 5 & 3 year old grand daughters there for a one-day visit. They had a great time, lines were short, except for the Sky Coaster which unfortunately we stood in line for 45 minutes in the sun. Both girls really enjoyed getting their Driver's Licenses!
Tip: Be on your most patient mind set as there are nothing but under 10 year old kids running amok with excitement!

"Kiddie focused Summer Fun"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed June 30, 2016 NEW

We arrived early before the park opened and started off at the Legoland hotel with a great American-style breakfast of pancakes and there were plenty of options - really a great kid friendly system and choices for the parents too. Fun lego builds and quirky touches. Then onto the actual park: It must be said that this is one of the ultimate child focused, and I mean small kids, amusement parks I have experienced. Lots of lego building opportunities available, lots of impressive giant lego statues, games, rides, putt-putt and a 4D mini movie. There are roughly 2 main sections to the park with many sub areas to match the lego themes (Friends / Knights etc) within - the areas to the left are tame and suitable for kids as young as 3/4yrs and the areas on the right for those 7 through to the early teens. Aside from one or two more thrilling roller coasters most of the rides are gentle and tame. We avoided the water park with ease but having caught glimpses of it, it looked like it could be fun (I can't do the chlorine). There are a few side line attractions so keep the single Dollar's ready to hand over! Go for the "guaranteed win"! Yes, with two kids, we were thrilled with the guarantee and so were they! My 4 year old loved the Lego Friends Merry-go-round (her first) and my 9yr old was thrilled by her first roller-coaster ride. With lots to do and see in between. So a great day out. I don't think it warrants a repeat visit - that was that, checked off. We had a good time but have to say that we missed the real lego based stuff we had hoped to see i.e. lego robotic examples. The "Big" store was disappointing and the NYC Lego shop outstrips it, so don't think you'll find that "favourite set" your child has been saving up for. We are having to go on-line and have it delivered! Fun but not Essential: A good day but would probably prioritise other attractions if time was short.

"Overpriced & Closes Early"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed June 29, 2016 NEW

This park is pretty large. Definitely takes a good two days to see everything including their water park. Rides are mostly for children only so if you only have one child with you it may be a good idea for them to bring a companion to go on rides with since adults can't go on many of them. Everything was really expensive but Legos have always been pricey so this park is no exception. Carlsbad weather is always pleasant but be sure to wear sunscreen. Park closes much earlier than most other theme parks so arrive early to be able to experience all there is to see.

"Our 4 year old had a wonderful birthday!"

Reviewed June 29, 2016 NEW

We stayed at the hotel on the property, so we were able to get early access. Got our park tickets from Costco - $99 for a 3 day hopper ticket (legoland, seaworld, and waterpark). I wish the park was better taken care of. While I don't expect them to do a white-glove cleaning treatment, but I don't expect to see cobwebs, part of rides falling apart from sun damage, etc. 4 rides with longest waits - Coastersaurus, Safari Trek (don't both going on it), Ninjago, and Coast Cruise. Coastersaurus, Safari Trek, and Coast Cruise because they're right there by the entrance to the park and most people naturally head to the left. Those 3 rides are to the left. Our 39" 4 yr old loved the following rides - Ninjago the ride (Ninjago World- Right) Exploding the cannons at Aquazone (Imagination - Right) Beetle Bounce (Land of Adventure - Right), Coastersaurus (Explorer Island - Left), Junior Driving School (Fun Town - Left) Skipper School (Fun Town - Left) Sky Patrol (Fun Town - Left) Captian Cranky's Challenge (Pirate Shores - Left)

Kids loved Legoland, but they also love Harry Potter. They did not see anything related to Harry Potter at Legoland unless they missed it. (They own all the HP Lego themed items) They liked the Knights Tournament ride and enjoyed mini-land. Although, they felt they were far too old for Legoland (16 & 19).
