Ride Review: Coast Cruise at Legoland California

During our stop at Legoland California, I had the opportunity to ride several rides as well as record a ride through video with my 360 camera.

Todays ride review is from the Coast Cruise at Legoland. The cruise sets sail around the sea in the middle of the park and takes you along several Miniland locations, but the real fun is the non stop puns from the narrating cruise director.

Upon embarking on the cruise, we start by sailing past several LEGO animals, including a buffalo, turtles, elephants, and more!


Once you cross through the waffle bridge, don’t worry, it’s a joke that’ll go over your head, you’ve arrived in Miniland. Some of the Miniland locations will have just a couple iconic locations built out of LEGOs, like London and the Taj Mahal in India.


While other locations like New York are quite elaborate, with a large LEGO skyline of the city of Manhattan.

The cruise ends with a unique rock concert before heading back to shore. LEGO animal sculptures are prepared to break out a tune in a moments notice. See the full cruise 360 POV video here:


After you’ve exited your cruise, I highly recommend taking the land tour through Miniland to see “mini” more LEGO cities up close. I went through Miniland at the end of my walkthrough 360 video. I’ll try to link to where that begins.

If it doesn’t go straight to Miniland, you can skip to 23 minutes 9 seconds.


As a fan of slow boat rides, punny jokes and 3d models of famous locations and landmarks, I really enjoyed the ride. There is plenty of different scenes to see. The water was smooth, which means a gentle ride for anyone that gets motion sick on water. And the narrator jokes are well timed.

Plus the ride is available for early entry, so an added bonus. Depending on the crowd levels, the Coast Cruise typically ranges from 20-35 minutes for wait times, so getting in during early entry can definitely save some time. If you’re not able to take advantage of early entry, it’s also available through reserve n Ride.

If you’re ready to start exploring a Legoland California family vacation, I recommend checking out Undercover Tourist for your ticket options.  I’ve already used them a few times, twice at Disneyland and once at Disney World and will plan to continue comparing their prices with other sites, however I usually come back to UT because they have the best deals and their instructions make it easy to add your tickets to the Legoland and Disney apps.
