Legoland Water Park Cabana Rentals

by

Legoland Water Park is located inside of the Legoland resort in Carlsbad, California and is an amazing place to bring your kids. We visit at least once a week during the summer, and truth be told I enjoy it as much as my kids do! A great option if you are planning on spending the day is renting a cabana. It is great to have a place to sit, relax, and refuel when needed, especially with little ones.

Cabanas are perfect for a family up 6 (although 2 additional guests may be added at $10 per person). If you have a larger party than 8, not worry you may just ask for two cabanas that are next to each other, Legoland will accommodate any request they can. Each cabana features two deluxe chaise lounges, two seating chairs, two complimentary towels, one full-size family locker rental in the Water Park locker area. Included in the cabana rental is ten beverages (juice, water, & soda) in your own mini-frig, two complimentary towels, and a duplo table with bricks for the kids to play with. One of my favorite things about being a cabana guest is you will receive front-of-line-access to Pirate Reef (once per hour, Water Park exit only) as well as unlimited float time on the Lazy River.

The cabanas 1-16 are in the main water park and are considered standard cabanas. Cabanas 17-28 are located in the Chima area, 18-24 are considered premium cabanas and 25-28 are private premium cabanas. If you are traveling with someone or someones who would like to go unnoticed while at the water park cabanas 25-28 are perfect for you.

For older children ages 6 years and up I would recommend the cabanas by the Build a Raft River, the cabanas in that area are Shark, Manta Ray, Parrot and Dolphin (13-16).  All of these are great because they are right by the Joker SoakerTwin ChasersSplash Out, and the Orange Crush, where you can watch you kids go down the larger water slides.

The other somewhat ‘new’ area of the Legoland Waterpark is the CHIMA theme area. The cabanas in this area are 23-28 and are near the Lion Temple Wave PoolEglor’s Build a BoatEglors Build a BoatCrug’s Run and the Croolers Twist. Please take note there is a height requirement for the Wave Pool of 42 inches.

If you have younger children under age 6 reserve a cabana in the Duplo Splash Safari area, the best cabanas in this area are 1-5 my favorite being the Polar Bear. The Polar Bear cabana is very close to the three water slides for younger children. If you have toddlers or babies the cabanas Tiger, Giraffe, and Elephant(10-12) are great options because they are right by the Safari Splash Zoo. If you would like to be in the Chima area of the park with younger children the best cabanas are 17-22 because they surround Cragger’s Swamp. Cragger’s Swamp hosts Crug’s Run a fun hands on area for younger children and includes two different water slides. The costs for the cabanas depend on the hours the park is open and which area you choose to be in. For more details on prices and hours visit Legoland’s website here.

If you do not plan to purchase a cabana plan to arrive at the water park when it opens. This will allow for you to get a chair or chairs near where your children will spend most of his or her day. If you are saving chairs only save chair for the number of adults in your party, the kids will be playing nearly the entire day and don’t need a chair. Most of the chairs will fill up fast if you want to have a place to put your things you should consider a cabana rental. Entry into the water park is very minimal, the cost of the cabana will make your day a lot more enjoyable.

Please note if you are a guest of the Legoland Hotel see the concierge because they will offer special pricing for you. If you plan to reserve a cabana I would recommend you do so in advance by calling (760) 438-5346, a minimum of one day prior to your visit is required.

Legoland Water Park opens soon…must see tips!

by

It is that time of year again, finally…. Legoland Water Park will be open in a few weeks!  While I know most of the country is still going through extreme weather as it is still “winter” Southern California has experienced a warm winter.  Last week it was in the 80’s and we were at the beach a few days in a row. My son asked if we could go to Legoland Water Park but I had to explain sorry, it isn’t open yet, the opening date is on March 7th, 2015.

lego waterpark

Last year was the opening of the Lego Chima Water Park which is a brand new three-acre addition to the watermark.  The most exciting part of the new park is Lion Temple Wave Pool, which has depths from 0 to 5 feet and covers over 13,000 square feet.  To enter the wave pool you pass through a 18-foot high Lion Temple Arch build from over 260,000 LEGO bricks.  As a parent it is the only place in the park to be fully submersed in the water.  There is no other pool as deep as the wave pool.  I am a not very tall, I say I’m 5’3 but I’m probably closer to 5’1, but don’t tell.  Because of this I am almost under the water towards the back of the pool. I recommend putting your child into a life jacket, as it is free and you and your child will have more fun.

Another great new feature at the Chima Waterpark is Speedorz Arena, children can race against each other on one of eight different tracks. The Golden Chi Lego model is made of over 18k lego bricks.  It is hard to pull my son away from this area it is his favorite, we now have tons of the speedorz at home because of this, touché legoland touché.

Pirate Reef may be accessed from legoland and the water park, the highlight of pirate reef is the buccaneer boat which goes down a steep drop. Be aware you will get wet on this ride, actually let me rephrase you will be drenched! As in your socks and underwear will be wet, if you come in from the park and not the water park make sure it is a hot day. It will take all day for your clothes to dry otherwise. There are signs now leading up to the ride to let you know you will be getting wet.  On both the inside and the outside of the water park there is a family sized dryer for $5, we have used it and I would recommend to dry of your family if needed.
