Enjoy Fun in the Sun at LEGOLAND Water Park

There are two sides to this adventurous LEGO-themed water park. On one side of the Park, you will find the classic type of water park decorated with colorful LEGO bricks. On the Chima side, you will see talking lions and crocodiles, all from the LEGO TV series!

The water park includes kid-inclusive activities for children of all ages. Take your toddlers to the DUPLO® Splash Safari, designed exclusively for children under the age of 6. Or they can tap into their creativity by building boats and dams over at the Imagination Station.

Some of these thrilling kids' rides require them to be accompanied by an adult, which provides the perfect opportunity for the adults to enjoy themselves as well. Or you can choose to sit poolside on a lounge chair that includes a mini-fridge and a shaded area so you can take a break from the sun.

Remember, this water park is within the LEGOLAND resort itself, so once you're finished with the water park, you can head on over to experience the wonders of LEGOLAND. Don't forget to stop into SEA LIFE Aquarium, where you can marvel at the magnificent creatures of the underwater world.

Best-kept Secrets About LEGOLAND Water Park

While LEGOLAND Resort is aimed primarily at children, adults enjoy this Park too! There are many lego models created from over 52,000,000 lego bricks instead of the park. There are also lego sets and you can even purchase up a lego minifigure or two from one of the many stores inside the park for those that want to build long after their stay

To get the most out of your day, you will want to arrive right before the park opens. Or you can book a room at either of the LEGOLAND hotels to have access to the park before it opens.

We recommend the Legoland California Resort and Castle Hotel for the ultimate LEGOLAND experience. This three star, family-friendly, Carlsbad resort features free WiFi and themed rooms! If you’re considering a trip to San Diego and looking for hotels that won’t wreck your budget, check out our article on the ‘Best Budget-friendly Hotels in San Diego’.

The earlier you arrive, the easier it is to bypass the large crowds and long lines at certain attractions.

How Much Time You Can Expect to Spend at LEGOLAND Water Park

LEGOLAND Water park has so many activities available; you can spend a full day in just this side of the Park. It's recommended that families take a two-day trip to experience what the Park has to offer.

Hours of Operation

LEGOLAND California is open to the public seven days a week. Although, during their offseason, they will be closed for select Tuesdays and Wednesdays for maintenance. For the water park, sometimes they close during fall and winter, depending on the weather in San Diego.

Their typical opening time is 10:00 AM, and they close around 5:00 PM. All times are subject to change, so it's a good idea you check their website before you head out.

Need Assistance While You're There?

If you ever need assistance or you need to ask a question while you are at the Resort, you can text (760) 203-3604 for your inquiries.

Although, if you have an urgent matter, contact any staff member within LEGOLAND for immediate assistance.

The Park's App is an Absolute Must!

The LEGOLAND App will simplify your visit! Use the planning tool to personalize your list of which attractions are best suited for your children.

This app also provides an interactive map for you, as well as the estimated wait times for rides.

Bring Swimsuits and Sunscreen!

Since you will be at a water park, you need to bring some sunscreen and swimsuits! Sunburns are up to 3 times worse when in the water because of the way it magnifies the rays.

Having an excellent waterproof sunscreen will help to keep those burns at bay!
