Explorer Island

LEGOLAND California
Explorer Island is for all the adventurers out there who aren't afraid to explore their wild side! There are plenty of natural elements in this land, all paired beautifully with the rides to enjoy. Coastersaurus takes you back in time to a jungle filled with dinosaur friends. Fairy Tale Brook is an easy-going ride on a charming little river that features classic fairy tale characters. Safari Trek showcases impressive LEGO animals as you make your way through the terrain on your own safari vehicle. For those who want to get a little more hands-on, you can call upon your inner paleontologist at Dig Those Dinos.

While not as flashy as most of the other lands around LEGOLAND California, Explorer Island is a nice little getaway with plenty of shade and much to enjoy while you're making your way around the park. Don't miss out on the great rides here though!
