"Great place to visit but the staff knows absolutely nothing."

If your kid loves Legos then this is the place to go. The staff doesn’t go out of their way to make it memorable. The highlight is the Lego movie but pay attention to the one you just saw because the staff have no clue as to what movie is playing. They rotate 4 short Lego 3D movies. The bathrooms are so cute. On our trip one of the rides were down so we only went on the Lego shooter ride was available- just make sure to bring Lysol wipes. I had instant regret once I grabbed that laser. The place was a little chilly so bring a light sweater. We didn’t try the food so I can’t comment. 3/5 because of the staff sucked and the 1/2 rides were done.

They say on the website that they limit the amount of people they allow in to make the experience better for all, but it sure didn't seem like they limited it on the day we were there. We purposely planned to go on a weekday to avoid some of the crowds, but it felt really crowded anyway. It was so crowded that it was hard for the kids to enjoy any of the activities because they had to wait so long. Some of the exhibits were closed the day we were there, but they didn't tell us that at the entrance or offer any sort of discount, which was disappointing. My kids liked it there for about an hour, but I felt like it was really overpriced for the amount of stuff they have to do. There was an employee upstairs on the Merlin ride who seemed engaged and pleasant, but most of the employees seem really cranky and annoyed, especially the staff in the store. If we lived nearby, it might be a fun activity, but we traveled specifically to come here and didn't feel like it was worth the drive. They say that they are proud to offer a nut free environment, but they allow visitors to bring in food and eat anywhere within the building, so I don't feel like that's true. If they advertise as a safe place for kids with allergies, then they should have specific areas for families to eat and encourage them to wash their hands after eating.

"Fun place for a few hours!"

We took our 3 year old granddaughter here for about three hours on a weekday. After 2:00 the crowds went way down. Afternoon was a good time to be there because school groups were leaving. Our granddaughter loved the two rides that they have. She also loved the climbing gym area and the jungle room. I would definitely look online for coupons because it's expensive at full-price. We had discounted admission and felt it was worth going.

"Good fun for kids"

If you have young children and/or grandchildren who love legos you must visit this attraction. It is full of fun and activity for kids from age 3 to 15. You should buy your tickets online rather than wait at the entrance. You can save time as well as money. The only drawback is that at times the place is too noisy and there is no control of children running around. Food for lunch is also limited in choice so you might consider bringing your own lunch. However despite some drawbacks this is still a good attraction for kids and you can easily spend a whole day there.
