Visiting the LEGOLAND SEA LIFE Aquarium with Kids
Visiting the LEGOLAND SEA LIFE Aquarium with kids is a great way to decompress after a busy day at the park or as a cool escape from the hot southern California weather. My kids and I were recently invited to a Ninjago event at LEGOLAND California, and while we were there we spent time at LEGOLAND’s SEA LIFE Aquarium.
Under the Sea with LEGOs
Like the LEGOLAND park, SEA LIFE Aquarium is full of fun LEGO figures built out of tiny LEGO bricks. The aquarium starts with the opportunity to pick up your interactive map. The map shows kids where in the aquarium they’ll find learning stations, and once each station has a paper stamp press to mark off their achievement. The map makes for a cute souvenir, or if you are already weighted down with maps from your travels, recycle it in the provided container on your way out of the aquarium.
What to Expect Inside the SEA LIFE Aquarium
The aquarium has several different attractions to view with LEGO scuba divers, submarines, port-holes and other fun activities for your kids. It is dark inside like most aquariums, but the views into the sea are fun enough to keep even the youngest of kids side-tracked from the dark interior.
The LEGOLAND California SEA LIFE Aquarium is full of educational activities for kids of all ages. Starting with the learning pamphlet that kids use to earn stamps. Along their way they’ll experience educational activities that teach about sea life and the importance of conservation. Towards the end of the exhibits kids can learn from an educator who will let them touch shark teeth and other sea life structures. You can also print out my free aquarium scavenger hunt for kids to use while exploring the aquarium!
What are the Best Ages for Kids to Visit the SEA LIFE Aquarium?
Babies through gradeschoolers will enjoy every aspect of the aquarium just as they would the LEGOLAND park. Older kids and adults will find the variety of sea life interesting, and may want to stop in at the cafe near the exit for a bite to eat. I recommend going to the aquarium to cool down mid-day or as a slower paced event for the evening. There is an entrance into the aquarium both inside and outside of the park gates, so you don’t even have to leave the LEGOLAND park to take some time away from the hustle and bustle of the main park.
