If you or your kids love Legos then LEGOLAND is the right place for you! Or, if you love theme parks in general you will love Legoland the most! If you have kids, this is the perfect place for them as well. As a large theme park, Legoland is designed to be an all day event for you and your family, providing entertainment for kids and adults alike. We have visited Legoland several times and loved it every time we went. I have asked my ten years old daughter to tell you about the main attractions at Legoland.

What to expect when visiting Legoland, California?

Like any major theme park, Legoland has plenty of rides that look like they were made of Legos, and there is a section of the park called Lego Duplo for kids 5 and under. Lego Duplo area includes a playground that looks like it was made of Lego Duplos, and a little train ride that will take you to a small Lego garden! And if you have children 6 and up, there are a lot of areas for building Legos, watching 3D shows, and a small food court with a couple of gift shops here and there. If you get tired during the day there are a lot of benches too!

The Lego constructions at Legoland, California

As the name implies, Legoland California is all about LEGO pieces and everything that has to do with them. There are beautiful, large Lego constructions at Legoland that are a must see! They are everywhere! Animals, cities, Star Wars scenes and even humans all made from thousands of Lego pieces! You name it and you will see it made from Legos!

The smallest constructions, like a fish or a spider, are built from at least 1000 Lego pieces. The medium sized constructions, as a cottage or small house, are made from at least 6000 pieces. The big constructions, as the New York skyscrapers, seem to be made from at least 100,000. They also have some extra-large constructions, such as a life sized pig, a life sized cow, a life sized giraffe, and a life sized deer. These are hard to estimate as to how many Lego pieces they have used.

Once you exit the 5 and under section there will be a section for girls 5 and up it is called HEART LAKE CITY! It has a ride called, “Mia’s round up”, which features a merry go round. Next to the round up is a Lego building section for boys, since the girls will be somewhere else. The girls will probably be watching the Lego Friends performance, which features 5 girls who show the audience how to dance and sing!

This theme park, like any other Southern California theme park, tries to add new attractions all the time to attract more visitors. They constantly remove and add new attractions as to move with the times. Large and small attractions are scattered everywhere around the park.

Star Wars displays and attractions represent a very large part of the entire theme park. There are large scale displays with favorite scenes from the Star Wars movies. Our family loves this part of the park.

The large scale Star Wars scenes resemble the Lego sets that can be found on the market with the obvious difference that the Star Wars scenes at Legoland are thousands of times larger and more complex. They show amazing care and attention to details.

Tips for visiting Legoland, California

Just like a visit to Disneyland, a trip to Legoland will require an entire day. If you would like to see the whole place quicly, it would take you at least 3 to 4 hours. Remember that this is an expensive place so packing your own snacks and lunch will save you lots of money even though they do have lots restaurants to choose from. It is VERY crowded on the weekends so if you can, try to go on week days. The lines for the rides during the week are at the most 45 minutes. If you have little ones try to not bring them in the summer because it could get really hot there and really tiring for them.

If you are planning a trip to this area you can find budget hotels in Carlsbad, California. Or if you are planning a trip to the larger San Diego area, you can look for value hotels in the San Diego area.

Is it worth visiting Legoland, California?

It is very much is worth visiting Legoland especially if you are Lego lovers or if you have kids that love Legos! Even if you are new to Legos you will learn about them when you go to Legoland! I love visiting Legoland and every time we went it was a great experience for me.
