    1. Splish Splash at the Water Park
      The water park is now open for summer, and kiddos big and small love to cool off at the park. From tube slides and pirate reefs to splash pads for toddlers, the Water Park is a must-do for those warm afternoons if you’re able to get a multi-park pass to LEGOLAND. Any LEGOLAND ticket can be upgraded to include Water Park admission.kids playing in water park at Legoland California
    2. Participate in Driving School
      Vroom vroom! Kids can earn their driver’s license at Junior Driving School (ages 3-5) or at Driving School (6-12), where they navigate the rules of the California roads. Both of these rides are a great way for kids to have fun in the sun while racing to earn their rights to the roads.
    3. Don’t Miss Miniland
      Miniland is certainly a must-see for all guests of LEGOLAND California. This impressive experience will make even the LEGO faint of heart a fan of the tiny bricks. Historic landmarks such as the Washington D.C. Capitol building, Golden Gate Bridge of San Francisco, Vegas highlights and Star Wars notorious characters are built to mini-scale in a world all of their own.

    4. Unwind at Castle Hill
      Let the little ones run free after a full day of fun at Castle Hill, and step back into a medieval time of flying dragons, jousts and magnificent castles filled with knights and princesses. They can enjoy the Hideaways attraction and climb up, crawl through, slide down, cross over and swing around on ropes, ladders and tunnels. Fun for all ages – this is definitely a must-see.
    5. Consider a VIP Experience
      Ready to splurge a bit on a vacation you and your family will never forget? LEGOLAND California offers an exclusive behind-the-scenes immersion into the park, which includes park admission, valet parking, a host for the day, front of the line access, and much more. View details here.
    6. Be Sure to “Sea” the Aquarium
      Stay an extra day and let your kids explore a wide world of sea life with hands-on learning, fascinating educational talks and up-close encounters with sea creatures including sharks, octopi and rays! Any LEGOLAND ticket can be upgraded to include the SEA LIFE Aquarium admission. So, next time you come to visit the LEGOLAND theme park, extend the fun for one extra day with the whole family as you explore the SEA LIFE Aquarium.
