Police and Fire Academy is one of the most unique and popular rides at LEGOLAND California. One half of the attraction sees guests boarding miniature, LEGO-themed fire engines which are propelled forwards by adults pumping an arm up and and down. When the engines reach a mock “burning” building, children can then pump water at it to douse the flames. Riders are placed into groups of 4, before boarding one of 4 fire engines. The aim of the game is reach the flames, extinguish them and return to the start before any of the 3 other engines that “race” alongside you. The other half of the ride features police cars, with the goal being to knock down robbers using the hose.
