The dark rides at LEGOLAND® provide some unique LEGO-themed experiences you won't find anywhere else. Each of the three United States LEGOLAND® theme parks in California, Florida, and New York, has a different set of rides, so no matter which park you visit, you're in for a fun time.

This article will describe the dark rides at the U.S. LEGOLAND® theme parks. If your children love playing with LEGO toys or watching LEGO television shows and movies, they're in for a real treat with these magical adventures.

The Dragon

The Dragon is a staple at all three U.S. LEGOLAND® theme parks. It is a fantastic ride for anyone who enjoys playing with LEGO toys because it is based on the graphics of LEGO's medieval and fantasy kits.

The ride begins with a completely dark section and takes riders on a castle tour. There are many different LEGO characters and animatronics, as well as a variety of settings that may be viewed here. After this point, the roller coaster moves outdoors away from the castle.

This is an enjoyable ride for families with children in the younger age range. The dark ride segment is fun and exciting, and despite appearances to the contrary, components like the dragon are not supposed to induce fear in riders.

This roller coaster is suitable for younger riders because it consists primarily of turns and drops, with no inverted segments. This could be a good choice for your child's first roller coaster. Note that riders must be at least 40 inches tall.

Lost Kingdom Adventure

The Lost Kingdom Adventure is located in the Land of Adventure, in the Florida and California LEGOLAND® theme parks.

During this thrilling indoor ride, you will climb on your desert off-roader vehicle, aim your laser gun, and assist the LEGO explorers in their fight against LEGO mummies and skeletons to uncover the location of the secret treasure. Keep a tally of your points to see if you can top the scores of the other explorers.

Guests are required to have the ability to transfer to their riding vehicle. The minimum height requirement is 30 inches. For the sake of the child's safety, children between 30 and 48 inches tall must travel with a responsible rider who is 48 inches or taller and is at least 14 years old.
