Does LEGOLAND Close When it Rains? | Explained
When you're visiting a theme park, rain is one of the few things that you can't control, that can still impact your experience.
In this page, we will go over whether or not Legoland closes when it rains, and what happens in the event that they close.
If Weather Affects Your Visit
If there is severe weather to the point where rides are paused or affected for more than 2 hours during your visit, Legoland will provide you with a Coupon that will allow you to book a free ticket for your next visit. The great aspect about this ticket is that it saves you from needing to purchase a separate ticket to return.
You can redeem this ticket online from the Legoland site, and it expires 1 year from the day that you received it.
Make sure that before exiting the park, you visit Guest Services Center (by the gate) to claim your coupon & code.
Why Do They Offer This?
Visitors can't control the weather, and many visitors can only take off of work weeks in advance to bring their kids to the park and spend their hard-earned money (even if there's a chance that it storms).
This pass provides visitors with the peace of mind that even if it rains, they will still be able to return and fully enjoy the park at another date.
Does Legoland Close When it Rains?
Legoland does not close when it rains but they can close due to severe thunderstorms. It is ultimately at the park's discretion.
They can also temporarily suspend rides until the weather improves, and then resume rides when they receive the 'All Clear' sign.
Preparing For the Rain
We've made a checklist of items to have and do in case of the rain:
- Bring a Poncho
- Download the Legoland App
- Know what the indoor rides are, and ride these rides when it rains
- Watch a show inside
The reason that a poncho is better than an umbrella at a theme park is that it's very lightweight and can fit virtually anywhere when it is folded up.
If you bring an umbrella, you may need to store it in lockers throughout your day. You can purchase ponchos on Amazon ahead of time, or at the park.
The Legoland app is extremely handy as it provides live wait times, an interactive map of the park, allows you to pre-order food, and even locate the closest restrooms.
