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.

"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.

"Fun"
April 2019
The lines are not to long. We did have trouble with them scanning in out tickets, I suggest printing them out. We had trouble with the add-ons to out tickets (sealife and the water park) for some reason the tickets we purchased from reserve direct were not in the system. After a long wait legoland printed us new tickets. The water park was fun but bring a change on cloths and a towel. Sealife really was not that big of a deal, it's just like other aquariums. Overall legoland was fun.

Tip: Food and drink in the park are very expensive. The water park offers lockers for a fee to store your things.

My husband and I took our son and his son for a fun day at Legoland, and were most definitely not disappointed at all! Our favourite ride was the submarine where we saw amazing animals up close. I couldn't tell who was more excited spotting them, my son or grandson!

After almost one year of sickness and treatment, I took my son and sister to the Legoland and I saw smile on my son’s face after a long time. He enjoyed his day and I found new life again. Thank you Legoland.

Reviewed May 16, 2019 NEW
Just left after 4 hours in the park. We have two children, 8 and 6. Both were bored out of their minds and asking if we can go back to Disneyland... There were multiple rides and restuarant closures (all of the rides that looked decent). I agree with other reviewers, it is extremely overpriced for what it is. Children under 5 will likely have a good time. We booked 2 nights in the area, thinking we could spend 2 days at legoland. Definitely not going back for day 2. Spend you money at Disneyland or add more days to your disney trip. Your kids will thank you.

"Not a good time to visit"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed May 16, 2019 NEW
We had a mix of ages from age 2 to 15 along with adults. Too many of the attractions for the older kids were down for maintenance and we were surprised at some basic rides that the 2 year old could not do. Also, it would be nice if the main entrance Legoland stayed open later. We would have spent extra money in it at the end of the visit to sea life but it was closed by 5:30pm

We took 4 kids under 4 and it was perfect for the toddlers! There are plenty of rides for them to do and lots to look at. Take your own lunch for the kids- the food was expensive, but it was good- not typical amusement park food. We went on an overcast Friday and didn’t have to hardly wait for any rides. Try to get there early because it got more crowded around mid-day. Parking is $25

"Not worth the money"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed May 15, 2019 NEW
Legoland was one of the two attractions we were looking forward to while visiting California for the first time. There were 3 adults, two 14 year olds and a 7 year old in our group. The 7 year old had a blast. All of the rides the teenagers were looking forward to were closed. Had we known this prior to visiting, we would have not wasted our money. The tickets were very overpriced considering the closed rides. The staff was friendly and able to get visitors excited. Most seemed to like their job. Wait times were short. Even considering the friendly staff and short waits, I would not recommend spending the high price of a ticket for such an experience. If the tickets were half the price it would be worth going back.

Enjoyed our three day stay but two days would have been enough.On the third day we were going to spend it at their water park but was shocked to find the $99.00 ticket didn’t include the water park so decided against another ticket for 5 people.Pleanty of little rides for the younger kids and a few rides for the bigger kids.Their gift shop has Lego kids not available elsewhere.All enjoyed the Ninjago 3D movie.This is not a substitute for Disneyland but enjoyable.The food and snacks in the park are about the same as Disney.
