Visiting LEGO Friends Heartlake City at LEGOLAND California

The kids love visiting LEGOLAND California. They have favorites, including visiting the enormous LEGO store, riding The Dragon and staying at the LEGOLAND Hotel. This Summer, they added something else to their list – playing at the new LEGO Friends Heartlake City area.

What to expect at LEGO Friends Heartlake City

Heartlake City has taken over where the water play area was, right outside DUPLO Playtown. Visitors can enjoy living like a LEGO Friend for a day while exploring Mia’s Riding Camp, a 62 horse and jeep carousel ready to take guests on an adventure, the Heartlake Fountain where children and their friends can splash about, and the Heartlake Stables ready for LEGO building activities.

During the day, you can sing along with the LEGO Friends on the Friends Forever Stage. As for food, there’s sweet crêpes at the City Park Crêperie.

We spent about an hour at the Heartlake City building new LEGO creations inside the stables, reading the trivia, playing out in the water play area and watching the show.

The water play is our absolute favorite because there’s no wait time! They just run throughout the “Heartlake Fountain” that features shooting water sprays on the heart-shaped floor. So cute!

The area also has a lot of photo opportunities. Everything from a huge LEGO horse, to LEGO Friends sculptures as big as most kids. You can also find an enormous hot air balloon inside the Heartlake City Boutique.

Stay and catch the “LEGO Friends to the Rescue” show if you have time. It’s about 15 minutes long and includes an introduction. It’s all about the girls getting ready for a talent show. They sing and dance, and afterwards, you can take a picture with them on a bench with a cute background.

We picked up a crêpe before moving on other parts of the park. The kids love how they can see through the windows and see them making the crêpes. You’ll order, they’ll give you a number, and then just hang out waiting for them to call you up. Wait times vary. Ours was about 15 minutes.

A visit to LEGO Friends Heartlake City should definitely be on the books next time you visit the park. Although there is a ton of pink and purple, my boys enjoyed it and it didn’t feel like it was only for girls.
