Why LEGOLAND? | Everything is awesome at LEGOLAND, and now your LEGO lovers will get to really experience what being a part of LEGO world is all about. This one-of-a-kind resort offers great accommodations and quick access to the LEGOLAND theme park.
WHERE TO STAY
When staying in LEGOLAND, your family can choose from two different hotels: LEGOLAND Hotel and LEGOLAND Beach Retreat. LEGOLAND Hotel is only “130 kid steps from LEGOLAND,” and it has four themed rooms for the LEGO lovers to enjoy. The resort also offers character meet and greets and nightly activities for even more LEGO fun after hours. The LEGOLAND Beach Resort offers a “lakeside bungalow” environment that will give you just the right amount of relaxation. And, it also provides a complimentary shuttle service to the theme park.
WHERE TO EAT
There’s something that even dad will love at Dragon’s Den. With turkey legs, bratwurst sausages, and honey-battered corn dogs, this quick stop is the perfect meal, if you need a quick bite to eat.
Kick’n Chicken Co.
For a brick-tastic meal–it’s a good thing, we promise–head on over to Kick’n Chicken Co. Feast on salads, wraps, chicken tenders, and chicken-less chicken (for the vegetarian in the family!). You really can’t go wrong with this delicious place to dine, but if you’re wanting to try what everyone raves about, be sure to order the Cinnamon Waffle & Chicken BLT.
Pepper & Roni’s Pizza Stop
Sometimes our children want to stick to the basics with food, and sometimes, that’s plain pizza. Luckily, Pepper & Roni’s is the place to get a variety of quick grab-n-go pizzas, including pepperoni, cheese, and veggie.
THINGS TO DO
Did you really go to LEGOLAND if you don’t build with LEGOs at least once? Well, now you can at the Building Zone. Your child can let his imagination run wild as he has an endless supply of LEGOs at his fingertips.
Taking on tall roller coasters is an absolute must at LEGOLAND, especially since they combined one of them with Virtual Reality (VR). When you strap on the VR headset during The Great LEGO Race, you are pulled head first into a race with other LEGO characters. What makes this ride even more mindblowing is that you get to “drive” your own LEGO vehicle, all while riding on a roller coaster.
Vacation within your vacation as you visit the LEGO versions of California, Daytona International Speedway, Florida, Kennedy Space Center, Las Vegas, New York, and Washington D.C., without ever leaving LEGOLAND. All of these places show the highlights of various attractions, including the Golden Gate Bridge and the Smithsonian, and these little spots are a great way to allow your children to learn all about different sights.
Take a ride on the Safari Trek to see all of the different animals LEGOLAND has to offer. The safari vehicles allow your children to drive through the park, fueling their sense of adventure. There’s lions and tigers, and bears, oh my!
Experience 4D at the 4D Theatre in Fun Town. This isn’t 3D like you have seen at the theater back home. This is an immersive experience that is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat. See all of your LEGO favorites, including LEGO City 4D Officer in Pursuit, The LEGO Movie, and The LEGO Ninjago Movie.
Climb aboard a mysterious wooden train ride powered by the wizard’s magic on Merlin’s Challenge. This magical experience is perfect for your smaller riders, and puts them seated comfortably in a train made out of, you guessed, it LEGOs!
If you’re heading to LEGOLAND in the warmer months, then the Build-A-Raft River is a must on your to-do list. You can build your own raft to use to float around the 1,000-foot lazy river. Put your own unique spin on your raft, and make it one of the most relaxing parts of your trip.
