Had some friends visiting from Arizona that wanted us to meet for the day at Legoland. I haven't been in a few years and a lot has changed in the park since my last visit in 2006. Plus my kiddo had two coasters there she hadn't been on yet (Coastersaurus & Lego Technic Coaster). I dont have the best digital camera and its old, so the pictures may not be the best.

 

First off there's some great deals going on in the San Diego area. Burger King is giving out a buy an adult ticket and get a kids entrance free when you buy a value meal. But I randomly stopped at Subway and saw a better deal. Buy a 32oz drink and it has a park hopper coupon on it. Buy an adult ticket and get a kids free with choice of adding either the Water park or Sea Life Aquarium. They also had 25% admission ticket coupons on a cardboard stand-up.

We only live about ten miles from the park and got there about a half hour before opening. It was pretty crowded for a Thursday and by the time we got through the parking gate and up to the front gate the park had opened up.

Park Map showing the water park just off of Fun Town

 

 

We got in and took a left towards Dino Island and as expected it was already packed and the line for Coastersaurus was over an hour long. So we decided to go head towards the back of the park where crowds would be sparse. The water park looked cool for younger kids, so its kind of unique for that. Legoland is good for the younger crowd who isn't ready for the big adult sized stuff.

Water park entrance, not yet open for the day

 

Our first real stop was Pirate Shores, this area wasn't around when we were last at the park. One thing I can say about Pirate Shores, prepare to get wet...

Treasure Falls Entrance, the line was deceptively short. There are four boats and they run really slow. Took about 40 mins to get to the front.

Ended up getting very wet on Splash Battle, not from the ride spraying me, or other boats, but from the people at the side of the ride, their cannons had much more pressure than anything else.

 

Next up is Castle Hill, my personal favorite area of the park.

1502473834_CH16-KnightsTableBBQ.JPG.27d58e9f5ba9d188602a18a062b123ed.JPG

Later in the day we headed back up the hill to eat at The Knight's Table BBQ. Legoland is doing free kids meals after 5pm until the end of August. I was starving and ate the chicken before I took a picture, but it was good. Kiddo had spare ribs and liked them. I never buy drinks at Legoland, they will of course give you free water after reminding you that they have bottled, but everything there was less than .

 

Land of Adventure was insanely crowded so we decided to turn back around and head to Fun Town instead.

Someone is a little apprehensive about that big first drop. But once she got it over with, she loved the ride.

 

Daylight is fading... lets get over to Land of Adventure and then cruise through Miniland USA before heading out the gate.

I was really looking forward to Lost Kingdom of Adventure... it didn't live up to even the Buzz Lightyear lazer ride at Disneyland. But the theming was really nice.

Star Wars Days at Legoland California this weekend. The 501st Legion was there and dressed up. Kids and their geek parents (myself included of course) were all excited and there were at times some decent lines to get a picture snapped, but especially for Vader. My daughter and I had a great time and will be happy to do it again next summer. Recommend it for any Star Wars fan near Legoland.

SWD-Scramble.JPG.6bb830c228398bbbdda635ec55b5d051.JPG

They also did a contest for a prize to be announced later (by phone or email). They hid a bunch of Boba Fett Minifigures in Miniland holding letters that you have to unscramble to spell out the answer. It was easy to figure out without finding them all, but we had a lot of fun finding all the minifigures and it wasn't easy.

We were only doing a short day since we had been there last on Thursday and the night before was almost no sleep. So we went on a few rides and visited Sealife Aquarium on the way out.

We also did Fun Town Fire Academy. I suggest at least 2 adults or at least one kid over 10 with you. Impossible to keep up without it. You pump to get the truck moving, once you get to the fire hydrant you jump out, hose down the fire and jump back into the truck to pump it back to the s tarting position.

We headed to the aquarium on the way out of the park. My camera didn't take good pictures as I expected.

A few of these around, it lets the kids get 'into' the action and get a great view of the sealife.
