**Masshole Mommy and her family received complimentary admission to LEGOLAND® California in order to experience the park and provide an honest opinion.  All opinions expressed here are strictly my own and were not influenced in any way**

During our recent trip to California, we got to spend an entire day at LEGOLAND®.  It was something that I have always wanted my kids to experience and I was so happy that I had the opportunity to take them.

We actually went on Easter Sunday and I am glad that we chose that day because the park was not as crowded as it probably normally would have been on any other Sunday.   We spent most of the day going on rides, but after lunch, we decided to check out the LEGOLAND® Water Park for a while.  My boys love water parks, so I don’t think they would have let us leave without stopping there for a while.


LEGOLAND® Water Park is located at the north end of LEGOLAND® California adjacent to  Fun Town. The entrance is located between the Factory Tour and the Adventurer’s Club.

The centerpiece of LEGOLAND Water Park is a 45-foot-tall tower designed to immerse children in the creative world of LEGO®. The four main slides originate with this tower.

Orange Rush: A family tube slide where up to four people can ride together down a 312-foot-long curving track on an 11-foot in diameter half pipe

Twin Chasers: Two side-by-side enclosed red tube slides that stretch nearly 130 feet and pour into a wading area below

Splash Out:  An open body slide that invites guests to slide 240 feet and “splash out” into the water below

Build-A-Raft RiverA one-of-a-kind concept where kids customize their own raft made of soft LEGO bricks before floating down a lazy river

DUPLO® Splash Safari: A water play area designed especially for toddlers with three small slides and interactive DUPLO® characters modeled after the actual pieces found in LEGO sets: an alligator, polar bear and an elephant

Kid Creek: A lazy river within DUPLO® Splash Safari built with younger kids in mind 

Joker Soaker: A fun interactive platform in the wade pool where kids can aim water cannons at each other as a LEGO jester model “tells” jokes while 350 gallons of water pour down upon them

Imagination Station: Interactive, educational and imaginative fun! There are two interactive tables. On one, kids can build bridges, dams and cities out of DUPLO bricks and test them against the flow of water. On the other, they control the flow of water by creating patterns out of LEGO elements.  In another area, a musical water stand with a series of holes on top that squirt water allows kids to become conductors of their own water symphony as they cover holes creating new music notes.

My two spend had a blast in the DUPLO® Splash Safari and ended up spending a good portion of their time at the water park there.

One of the coolest features of the LEGOLAND® California Water Park in our opinion were these dryers:


For $5, you could go stand inside them for a few minutes and walk out completely dry.  We have been to several water parks and have never seen these before.  It’s nice that you don’t have to carry around a change of clothes with you all day!

And before you ask, here is everything else you need to know:

  • LEGOLAND Water Park is the world’s first and only LEGO themed Water Park
  • LEGOLAND Water Park is the single biggest addition to LEGOLAND California since the Park Opened in 1999 at 5.5 acres and $12 million.
  • There are 22 LEGO models throughout LEGOLAND Water Park, five of them are jumbo LEGO friends who stand 6-feet-tall and weigh about 250 pounds.
  • The jumbo LEGO friends include a surfer, a lifeguard and a fisherman. They are unusual in that they are piped to splash and spray water onto guests exploring the lazy river.
  • The alligator, elephant and polar bear in the DUPLO Splash Safari are giant-scale replicas of the DUPLO animals that come in LEGO sets
  • The first official guests of the Water Park were 50 children from Camp Connect who were reunited with their siblings during  a once-in-a-lifetime play date.  The children who were separated from their siblings due to placement in the foster care system, had the Water Park entirely to themselves for an hour before the Park opened to the public.
  • Trash cans, recycling bins and benches throughout the Water Park are made of recycled milk jugs. There are 18 benches made of 800 of the plastic jugs each; there are 20 trash cans and 20 recycling bins, each made of 330 milk jugs.  This is just one of many green initiatives on behalf of LEGOLAND California’s Green Wave Committee.

My boys had a blast at the LEGOLAND® California Water Park and even though we didn’t get to spend the entire day there, they were happy that they got to spend as much time there as they did!

    When I grew up in UK, Lego had not been heard of – we had a similar thing with tiny components called Beta-Bilda. It was a much loved activity for many years and when our litte brother got given Lego there were wars as to which was best… sorry. Memory trigger… &*>

  74. WOW, looks like you guys had a fun day! I haven’t ventured to our Legoland Water park yet, but I’m definitely wanting to go now

  76. That is such a cool water park! We have seen the people dryers at a few places before. Once in Orlando and again this weekend at Cedar Point. I always wondered how well they worked lol.

  83. What fun place to visit this must be. Love the pics you’ve taken!

  84. my 8yo went to Legoland Windsor earlier this year and absolutely loved it

  86. We have never been to Legoland before. But I am sure my son would really love it!

  87. Great pictures. I really never had heard much other than the name of Legoland before. I can imagine it would be crowded just on name alone.

  88. Does it get any better for kids to be in over sized Legos, never such a thing when my kids were young, my how times have changed. Hope you ca stop by, enjoy your day!

  89. This looks like a lot of fun! I wish it wasn’t so far away so I could take my son!

  90. Wow what a fun time! I’d love to try the Splash Out and Build-A-Raft River if I were a kid. I remember going to a water park in the tunnel slides, such a good time!

  91. What a great review! So detailed! We have a LegoLand here in Central Florida…I’m not sure if it has any waterpark stuff or not, though.

  92. This looks like such a fun place! I have never met a kid who did not like Legos.

  93. Lucky you – that must have been great fun! 🙂

  100. Ah-mazing! I had no idea Lego had a water park. I’ve seen some of the sculptures before and they are super impressive.

  101. How fun! My kids would love the water park. We went to the Legoland in Florida soon after it opened and my kids still talk about it.

  102. I have to say – you packed in A LOT during your time here! We can’t wait to go to Legoland! Waiting on our baby girl to get bigger so she can enjoy it too. Looks like you all had a ball!

  103. I keep seeing all the ads on their FB account and so want to hop on a plane and go. What a fun trip and to get free tickets is even better!!

  108. I love a good water park! This looks like such a fun destination without all the crowds!

  110. What lucky kids! My kids love legos and water parks, so this would be a dream visit for them!

  111. We have the dryers at our local Universal Studios Singapore park but I’ve never tried them! Great that they work well!

    Ai @ Sakura Haruka

  112. The park looks awesome and it looks like you guys had a great time. However, what I’m wanting is that dang dryer, EVERY pool needs one of those (especially ones at hotels lol).

  113. I am determined to take my son to one of the Lego Land parks if it kills me . The closest we have been is the Lego Land discovery center in Texas.

  114. LEGOLAND Water Park looks like so much fun. We need to plan a trip there one summer.

  115. This looks awesome! My son would love it! I would too.

  116. I skipped Legoland while we were out west, since my son was still so small – barely 34″ tall – but I’d love to make a trip once he’s a little older!

  117. Oh my word a Legoland Water Park!? Man I think my boys would have a blast with anything that has to do with Legos. Now I feel like we need to travel.

  118. My kids would behave SO WELL for a few days anyway, if they knew I was taking them here. It looks fun!

  119. We have some water parks around Toronto but I’ve never been as they are jammed with kids.

  120. The looks like tons of fun! My oldest would love the slides, my youngest the Duplo area. I think both would love building their own raft.
