LEGOLAND California
LEGOLAND California's rides and attractions were made with the whole family in mind.

Top 3 Things to do in LEGOLAND California

Conquer The Dragon
There's a reason The Dragon is the most popular ride at LEGOLAND California: it's fantastic!

Take Lessons in Driving School
Driving School is probably the most iconic ride at LEGOLAND California. It's just for kids (up to 14 years of age) and really let's them feel like the kings and queens of the road. The special driver's license you can get at the end is also a magical touch.

Meander down a Fairy Tale Brook
This ride is not exciting or flashy, but it's one of the most charming rides in any theme park. You float down the river in a leaf boat and get to enjoy classic fairy tale scenes built in LEGOs. There are sound effects, moving parts, and so much to see that you'll definitely need to ride it over and over if you want to take in every detail. The best part: the line is never long for this hidden gem of a ride!
