I didn't expect to have so much fun - but I did! We took our family there to celebrate our grandchildren's birthdays. It was priced really fair and there's a ton of different stuff to do. We got there early and rode rides then went to the see the Legos and to the Aquarium. It was a great time I will always cherish. Next time we'll stay another day and go to the waterpark too.

"Great Day"
April, 2018 NEW
The creators of LegoLand put a great deal of thought into how to make parent's lives easier and have a great time for kids. I will say we were lucky to be able to go on a weekday when most schools were in session, so it was not crowded and the lines were very short for all rides. My two kids (3 and 6) could have spent days playing on the different playground there and riding a number of the rides. The driving school was a huge hit. There were many places where the adults could sit and relax while the kids ran themselves around. The aquarium was pretty cool too. Small as aquariums go, but definitely worth a look. We spent about hour at the aquarium and could have stayed longer (we were the last ones out at 30min past closing time).

Tip: Check to see if the water park is open before you go. It is often closed in the off season. Head to the back of the park first as the lines for the first few rides tend to be long and those rides are not the most exciting.

"A Great Time"
April, 2018 NEW
Everyone had a great time. My grandkids loved it. We had two days to see everythng. They loved the few rides we went on and could not get enough of the mini towns. A fun place to go, but the cost of the fast passes such as they are were too much so had to stand in lines a long time with the toddlers.
Read More
Tip: There are three types of fast passes that cost per person and not per family. The lowest is $25 each person and the highest is $100 each person. Not a good deal unless you have a lot of money.

"Legoland highly recommended!"
February, 2018
Our group of 5 ranging in age from 8 to 54 had a great time at Legoland California. We spent two full days, everyone enjoyed rides, exploration, yummy food, and interactive games and displays. We also loved the Sealife Aquarium.

Tip: There is a Legoland app that tells you the status of the lines for rides. Also, the food choices are good and not too pricey, though you can bring in snacks and drinks.

"An amazing brick-based theme park"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed April 24, 2018 NEW
Legoland is one of the theme parks in southern California. It is also friendly to young kids. Kids are taller than 36 inch tall should be able to enjoy most of the theme park. It is not as crowded as the disneyland. I suggest parents with younger kids should consider this theme park although the admission fee of the park is a little bit expensive comparing to the number of the rides in the park is not as many as other theme parks.

Legoland was far different from the Disney crowds but no less awesome! Short line and small crowds made riding rides easy and they were awesome! From younger kids to adult coaster it was all around seriously cool! Food at the. Smokehouse was to die for and it wasn’t that expensive either! Only draw back was one rude employee!
