I had so much fun! 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.

From December 5th – and for a limited time only - experience the first ever life-size and drivable LEGO® Technic Bugatti Chiron at LEGOLAND® California Resort!

A 1:1 replica of the world’s fastest production car, this first of its kind model is made entirely of LEGO Technic bricks and elements. Perfectly recreating the organic design lines of the iconic Bugatti Chiron, this pioneering piece of engineering and design pushes the boundaries of what LEGO builders imagined was possible to create with LEGO elements.

The model is the first fully-functional self-propelled life-size LEGO Technic car. Developed using over 1,000,000 LEGO Technic elements, it’s powered exclusively using motors from the LEGO Power Function platform. Packed with 2,304 motors and 4,032 LEGO Technic gear wheels, the engine of this 1.5 ton car generates 5.3 horse power and an estimated torque of 92 Nm.

A testament to what you can build for real with LEGO Technic, this non-glued, fully-functional and self-propelled model can fit two passengers inside and accelerate to over 30km/h.
Witness this one of a kind model for a limited time in The Big Shop at LEGOLAND California.

"Overpriced and Underwhelmed"
July 2019
Short story is $100 a person for tickets to enter, $30 to park the car, $10 per try to play any of the carnival games, entry fee does NOT include the use of the 3 water parks, that will set you back another $30 a person, mostly a lot of walking around from attraction to attraction only to find long lines and more and more fees. Totally misrepresented. This trip was our 1st and out last to Legoland... Underwhelmed

"Family Vacation Done Right"
April 2019
My family and I (myself, 3 kids and their dad) spent Spring Break in the beautiful weather in Carlsbad Ca. It was our first time at Legoland and it did not disappoint. My 6 year old son was amazed at all the Lego people we saw and said I was the best mom ever for taking him. That was all worth it.

Good for smaller children, but not for bigger children. Rides are fairly basic, but the lines were not long on a weekday in January. Lots of playgrounds and play areas that the kids enjoyed as well.

Incredibly surprised to see such lack of maintenance. Lego displays are often faded and dirty, litter on the ground in areas. Definitely not up to Disney standards in maintenance yet equal to Disney in admission price. Really not acceptable at this price point.

"Easiest park to visit"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 18, 2020 NEW
Loved the kick back easy going nature of this park. More spacious, clean (lots of bathrooms) and organized. But the deluxe reserve and ride if you can afford it it will help you minimize time in line. As soon as you check in for one ride reserve the next one and you will basically go from one ride to the next without much dead time. The downside is that you have to usually go to the entrance of the park to buy the reserve and ride as the online purchase is defective.

"Kids love this place, but the lines were sure long!"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed January 12, 2020 NEW
What I appreciate about this place is that they actually had several ev chargers right near the entrance. That's an A+ for service. The day we came, several of the amusements places were closed which probably resulted in what it feels like longer lines. However, someone who was a member said that the lines were actually shorter because there were less people during the weekdays. I hate to think of how the lines are on weekends and summer. Food is a hit and miss. Love their apple fries, but I definitely would avoid their chinese food restaurant. There's something about this place that kids love and they seem to have enough varieties of activities if you don't want to go on the rides.

I was excited to take my 8 and 7 yr old boys to Legoland but was disappointed for the most part. Too many carnival activities or areas that cost extra money. Two vending machines to grab a quick drink weren't working so hard to wait in a long line for a beverage. Rides were meh. Food expensive and meh..the bathrooms..the one bathroom had 3 stalls...and about a 12 person line up. Not ideal for a large capacity park. The Lego setups were kinda neat but needed some upkeep for sure. Probably wouldn't go out of my way to come again. Kids had a good time though but rather spend my money where the whole family is having fun not just the little ones
