Captain Cranky's Challenge 

Ahoy maties! Captain Cranky dares you to test your sea worthiness as you sway back and forth on a pirate ship that sits on a “U-shaped” track and rotates in two directions.

  • Indicates minimum rider height. Child must be at least 34" inches.
  • Below 42" must be accompanied by a responsible rider of this height or taller and must ALSO meet the minimum height requirement indicated.
  • LEGOLAND California offers our visiting parents, who have one child(ren) that meet and one child(ren) who doesn’t meet the minimum height restriction, the opportunity to do a “Parent Swap” at any ride that parents are allowed to ride. All members of the party are required to wait in line together. When you reach the front, let the ride operator know of your intention, so that he can accommodate you. When the first ride is over, the parents may then switch places and the older child can ride again with the other parent.
  • Guests must be able to transfer to ride vehicle's seating with assistance from a member of their party. Model  Citizens may not assist.
  • Splash Battle, Captain Cranky’s Challenge, Swabbies Deck, and Treasure Falls will be open at 10:00am on days the Park is open.
  • Subject to closure without notice due to cold or inclement weather.
