Get Ready for the Best Rides at Legoland California

Legoland California Tips

Before we jump into the best rides at Legoland CA,  I wanted to make sure you know an important fact. 

Legoland is designed for kids.  Legoland is the best for toddlers, preschool age all the way up to age 10.  So basically, the Legoland age range is 3-10. Adults will enjoy the Legoland attractions and creations but for the most part, the rides at Legoland are geared towards younger kids. 

If you have younger kids that love Legos, grab your tickets and get ready for some fun! 

Questions About the Rides at Legoland

I am going to start by answering a few questions you might have about the rides at Legoland California.  I will also give you some Legoland Tips that will help you navigate the park. 

How Many Rides at Legoland California are there?

There are 23 major Legoland CA rides.  Legoland likes to blend experiences and play areas into the ride category but we are only going to mention the rides that move.  

How Many Roller Coasters Does Legoland Have?

There are 3 Legoland California Roller Coasters. These are considered the Legoland thrill rides!!

  • The Dragon
  • Coastersaurus
  • Technic Coaster

Let’s start with the Legoland California Roller Coasters!! 

Legoland California Roller Coasters

Legoland California Roller Coasters

The Legoland California roller coasters are so fun! They are not intense!  These 3 Legoland attractions are junior coasters and appeal to a younger crowd that is not quite ready for Universal or Six Flags! 

Let’s take a look at the Legoland height requirements, what the ride is like, and who is going to love it the most. 

1. Lego Technic Coaster

California Legoland rides

Legoland Height Requirement: 

The rider must be 42″ and 4 years old and accompanied by someone over 14.  To ride alone you must be at least 6 years old and 48″.

The Ride

Technic Coaster is one of the best Legoland California rides!  It is the most intense ride at the park.  Older kids love it! It is still technically a junior coaster that is great for kids.  You will experience a classic mouse rollercoaster with Harpin sharp turns. 

Hot Legoland Tip

Go Early!  Because it is one of the best Legoland California roller coasters the lines will be longer during the day.  If your kids want to experience this roller coaster be sure to go on it first.  

If you wait in line later in the day be sure to bring sunscreen as there is not much coverage while you wait.

2. Legoland Dragon Coaster

The Legoland Dragon Coaster is one of the best first-time roller coasters at Legoland.  If your kiddo has been wanting to go on his/her first roller coaster, the Dragon is a great choice.  The track is super simple. 

I like how it starts inside and goes to the outside!
