Legoland General Overview

Legoland California is located in Carlsbad, California, about 60 miles south of Disneyland and 90 miles south of Los Angeles International Airport. Designers built Legoland with children in mind, and is best described as a children's theme park. The target audience is 3- to 12-year-olds. Children should be at least 36" tall enjoy most of Legoland's attractions.

Hours of Operation

Legoland is open daily, all year long. Rides close 15 to 30 minutes before the park closes, so if you want to catch one last ride, plan to be in line before then. These dates are all 2001; 2002 hours have yet to be released.

HOT TIP! Guests usually arrive en masse about an hour after the park opens, so plan to arrive about 10 to 15 minutes before opening. This gives you time to purchase your admission and have your children measured for their wristbands. Once inside, you will find most rides have no lines, including the Sky Cycle, which by mid-day frequently has a 60-minute line!

Located on the coast, Carlsbad enjoys a mild beach climate. Be prepared for cool ocean breezes and even occasional fog. Bring a sweatshirt or jacket in case the weather turns cool, even in the summer. Visitors to Legoland should guard against the bright coastal sun. Even when the skies are overcast, you are still exposed to ultra-violet rays; do not forget your sunscreen!
