Legoland California
Carlsbad, CA

At LEGOLAND® California, your day starts at The Beginning, the main entrance plaza to the Park. Be sure to check out the area. The Big Shop, an 8,000 square foot retail facility, is jam-packed with the biggest selection of LEGO® merchandise in the US, and we can ship packages for you anywhere in the world.

The Market has freshly baked muffins, croissants, brownies and cookies, along with gourmet coffees, espresso, soda and juices.

You can't miss the Welcoming Dinosaur - a bright red dinosaur standing nine feet tall and 34 feet from his nose to the tip of his tail, made completely from LEGO bricks.

EXPLORE Village provides a whimsical setting where the younger guests will find wonder and adventure. Guests venture into the wilds of Africa and see life-sized giraffes, zebras, lions, and more - all made of LEGO® bricks. The Water Works is an interactive water play area, where kids play with water, not in it, and younger guests will have fun in Playtown.

Visit the Village Theater, where Kevin Johnson and his Fine Feathered Friends are sure to entertain audience members of all ages!

All adults remember longing to be BIG when they were kids. Fun Town at LEGOLAND® California is the chance for youngsters to live out that dream in a scaled-down town created just for them.

Castle Hill is the most themed area of the Park, creating an illusion of a romantic time in history when Kings and Queens reigned supreme, and knights rescued damsels in distress.

The central focus is the castle, which houses The Dragon, a spirited, more scenic experience than most coasters, showing the guests what life was like in a castle in the days of damsels and dragons. Merlin the Magician is the host on the fully animated ride that leads down to a cave where a fire breathing dragon is guarding the crown jewels. Guests are then whisked out of the castle away from a sinister fate. Complete with turrets and towers, the castle serves as a protectorate over a medieval village with a market, blacksmith, stables and gardens.

The heart of LEGOLAND® California is Miniland USA. A dedication to the ultimate expression of the LEGO® art form, this replication of five areas of the United States, all constructed with 20 million LEGO bricks in 1:20 scale, can be seen from many places in the Park.

A primary LEGO showpiece, Miniland USA is a celebration of American achievements, a canvas to illustrate the diversification of its peoples and cultures, past and present. The models demonstrate the heritage of the people, most of whom came from other countries.

Miniland USA presents famous landmarks built entirely from LEGO elements. Guests experience the wonders of Washington DC, New Orleans, New York City and the California coastline - in miniature - right down to the smallest detail. Also featured is an animated, interactive New England Harbor scene.
