There is always new things happening at LEGOLAND California, this year the big new thing for my boys was the new Ninjago World! Between checking out new things, and visiting old favorites there is plenty of fun things to do at LEGOLAND this summer!
1. Ninjago World
Quinn loved the new Ninjago ride. It’s an interactive 4-D ride that lets guests battle the Great Devourer. You’ll also find a Zane’s Temple Build, a LEGO building station, and several interactive Ninjago skills activities throughout the area. Kai’s interactive spinners were one of the boys’ favorite activities.
2. LEGO Friends Heartlake City
LEGO Friends fans will love the new Heartlake City area. It features a beautiful carousel. We didn’t ride it on this trip but the boys did seem interested in riding one of the horses. We just had plenty of other fun things on the agenda already.
3. LEGO Boat Races
New to us this year is the build (& race) LEGO boat activity. We easily spent an hour there on both days of our trip. It’s similar to the build and race LEGO car activity outside the LEGO store in Downtown Disney, except with water. 🙂
4. 4D Movies
Watch The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure or the new LEGO® NEXO KNIGHTS™: The Book of Creativity. We caught the latest adventure with Emmet, Wyldstyle and friends as they battle another evil plot, this one involving a theme park conspiracy. Join the NEXO KNIGHTS as they battle the evil Jestro and the Book of Monsters! Then download the app to continue the adventure and discover 6 shields hidden across the Park.
5. Disney Minifigures
Purchase new Disney minifigures or trade for them. Now that Disney minifigs are available it is possible to trade for them, although it will take a little hunting. Elliot was so excited to buy a couple of the new packs of Disney minifigures. One of them turned out to be Ariel which he didn’t really want. We started checking with every employee, shop and food place to find another Disney minifig to trade for. We finally found a couple of cool options at the SeaLife Aquarium gift shop a C3-PO and Toy Story Alien. The next day we saw Aladin and Dash from the Incredibles on the trading display at the front entrance.
6. LEGO Star Wars
The LEGO Star Wars Miniland Death Star Model Display opened last year. It spans 8-feet across and features iconic film scenes that were filmed inside the Galactic Empire’s space station made of LEGO bricks. Plus you’ll find 7 scenes from the Star Wars movies and multiple Star Wars character statues to pose for pictures with thru out the area. It’s a must for any Star Wars fan!
7. Get Wet
Soak-N-Sail is an interactive splash pad and water play area and a must stop for us on every visit to LEGOLAND. I was happy to see new changing rooms right next to it this year. The changing rooms are much more convenient than trekking with to the nearest bathroom with soaking wet kiddos.
Splash Battle is nearby and Quinn sweet talked me into riding it on this trip. Personally, I prefer standing along the sidelines soaking him as his boat passes by. If you really want to get soaked check out Pirate Reef, a flume style water ride.
Bonus LEGO Fun
Plus don’t miss the New LEGO One World Trade Center and enhanced LEGO Miniland New York City. It’s scheduled to open on July 4th.
I received complimentary admission for myself but purchased LEGOLAND tickets for the boys. All opinions and experiences are our own.
