If you have young children like I do, one of the best amusement parks to visit is Legoland. The rides are geared towards younger kids, the lines are never that long, and there are plenty of interactive exhibits for the kids to play with. Right now, Legoland is even better with the Legoland California promotion that allows you buy 1 day, get 4 free!
Where is Legoland located?
Legoland has several parks across the globe.In the United States, there is Legoland California, which is Carlsbad… about halfway between Sea World San Diego and Disneyland in Anaheim.
In the United States, there are two parks: one in California and another in Florida. Legoland California is in Carlsbad… about halfway between Sea World San Diego and Disneyland in Anaheim.
Legoland Florida is in Winter Haven, halfway between the Orlando theme parks and Tampa Bay.
International Legolands are located in Denmark, Germany, United Kingdom, Malaysia, and Japan.
How much are Legoland California tickets?
I’m going to focus on Legoland California tickets because the Legoland promotion for buy 1, get 4 free is only available in California.
Single day tickets just for Legoland start at $90 for kids 12 & under and are $96 if you are 13 years old or over. It’s surprising that only $6 separates child and adult ticket prices, but both Disneyland and Universal Studios do it the same way.
For an extra $5, you get a second day and entrance to the water park. And for another $5 ($100 kids, $106 adults), you also get entrance to the SEA LIFE Aquarium.
Legoland California Promotion Buy 1, Get 4 Free
To really stretch your vacation budget, I suggest spending a couple more dollars and doing the Legoland California Promotion where you buy 1, get 4 free.
For $115, kids get access to Legoland California, the SEA LIFE Aquarium, and the water park. Adults are $6 more. The extra 3 days is only $15 more than the 3-park 2-day option above!
This brings the average daily price down to $23 for children 12 & under and about $24 for adults. Even with the 2-day options above, you’re still saving 50% on ticket prices with this offer. You can’t beat that!
Ok, you will still have to pay $17 a day for parking every day. For a family of four, that breaks down to $4 a person.
The Only Downside…
The only downside to the Legoland California promotion for buy 1, get 4 free is that all 5 days must be consecutive. In other words, if your first day entering the park is Monday, your pass expires on Friday whether you’ve used any of the other days or not.
If you don’t think you’ll go to Legoland 5 days in a row, you’re better off with the 2-day options above. With the 2-day packages, your second day only has to be within 9 days of first use.
My kids absolutely LOVE Lego, but I’m not sure even they would want to visit Legoland California 5 days in a row. For most families, I recommend either of the 2-day options that seem more reasonable considering all of the other entertainment options in Southern California. We have plenty of amusement park choices, the beach, Hollywood, and so much more that most families won’t want to spend their entire vacation at Legoland.
