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.

"Legoland highly recommended!"
February, 2018 NEW
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.

I stayed at the Legoland Hotel for my son's 6th birthday and obviously booked tickets to Legoland for 2 days. It was a great experience. They had great rides even roller coasters that were kid and adult friendly and fun. Everyone there is super nice and acknowledge you and the entire park ia truly amazing. Some of the lines are long, which is expected but proper planning made this one of the best experiences foe my family. Will be coming back soon.

"Great Park For Kids"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed March 16, 2018 NEW
I ha d an excellent time at the park. Most of the staff were really friendly.The kids Loved the rooms and all the Legos they could play with. I would recommend this place for anyone with little ones.I did have one concern and that was the racial jokes by one of the valet (Michael, Bald Head). The jokes were distasteful and inappropriate. Other than that the family had a wonderful time when we went there.

Expensive? Yes. Horrible customer service? Yes. Delighted my children? Yes. I had a two day pass included with my hotel package. On day 2, we were told my tickets had already been used... It took 30 minutes to sort this out with staff who clearly had little training in customer service, and no authority/ empowerment to “make it right.” Bottom line... go, avoid contact with staff, share in your kids’ delight!

"Fantastic for kids who love Legos"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 15, 2018 NEW
We arrived Sunday to the hotel. After the free breakfast, we were directed to the admission line, which was open 1/2 hour early for those with our accommodations. We got in line, showed our tickets, and were given maps and directed to the ride we requested. Everywhere we looked were kids, huge Lego characters built with Legos, and rides. The park was immaculate, with lots of benches and trash receptacles and persons with brooms and dust pans cleaning any stray debris. The boat ride passes many Lego characters, and it is announced how many Legos went into each character. The driving school, where kids drive cars, was a big hit. Roller coaster was a long ride and great for seeing the park. The Water Park was a perfect afternoon relaxation time to spend in warm water. We were there on a cool day, and after the water park all wet participants went to the drying station where for $5.00 a family of four fits and has heated air blown on them to dry out. We checked our bags at valet in the morning, and we were given them quickly by the valet. Parking is by the day; we did not eat meals at the park (I brought food) although I had two double shot lattes which were less than $5.00 each. When we bought souvenirs they were sent to the Minimarket (across from Big Shop) to pick up as we were exiting the park, so we didn't have to carry them around with us. The pick up was efficient and fast. My grandson had wanted to go to Legoland for four years and had told me that he thought he would never get to go, so I gave him the trip for his birthday. He wants to go back, but we will not stay in the hotel when we return (pricy), we will drive down in the morning and back at night. There is a coupon for one free kid who is accompanied by an adult in the booklet that they gave us at the hotel. All in all, it was a great trip, and everyone had a wonderful time. (I am 73 years old, My daughter 52, my granddaughter is 11 1/2 and my grandson is 9. I think he would not have appreciated it when he was younger.)

We took our 10 and 9 year old for the first time to Legoland. The kids, and adults too, loved it. Fun rides and things to see. We loved the pizza and pasta buffet after 4:30pm kids eat free! And I tried the tasy apple fries. We hope to try the water parks next time when it isn't as cold. The mini Legoland is really fun to see!
