A much smaller version in comparison to the Florida venue. We enjoyed the 4D movie and a ride. Use a Groupon or check RetailMeNot for discounted entrance passes.

"A Compact Legoland"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed December 05, 2017 NEW
The LEGOLAND in Schaumburg (Chicago area) is a nice little compact LEGOLAND. I am not sure why but I was sort of expecting a larger place but this LEGOLAND is not very large footprint wise, but they do pack in a lot of things into that footprint...a 4D movie room, two rides, a jungle walk area with lego creations, and a Chicago cityscape from legos, plus a water lego play area, build a car race area, duplo area, a fort/castle play area, etc. We visited LEGOLAND during a weekday morning in early December so it wasn't crowded at all which was good. While there are a lot of different areas none of them are very big by themselves so I can only image if you went on a weekend or school holiday it would be packed and a lot more frustrating for you and your kids. Our check-in process was slow due to computer problems they were having but the staff was friendly and accommodating. I always like seeing the lego creations, especially the cityscapes and seeing different famous Chicago landmarks was interesting. Unfortunately one about one of about four or so of the interactive buttons on their displays worked. My daughter liked the two rides. One is a balloon/bike type of ride where two people (you and your kid) can sit side by side in a balloon as the balloon goes around you can pedal and make it go higher or lower. The first time we went it worked great. The second time we got a unit that didn't work going up or down. The second ride is a quest type of ride where you sit in a car and it goes along a path through a jungle like setting and you have to take your "laser" type of gun and shoot at targets to get points. My daughter liked this ride as well but never did figure out what you did with the points (of course LEGOLAND gives you the opportunity to purchase a picture they take of you mid-ride). Both rides are smaller size so don't last that long or handle that many people at once. Finally, like most such attractions you exit via their Lego store and gift shop. Again this store was much smaller than I thought it could be (or should be) so some of the choices where limited and I can image if there were a lot of people coming and going it would get crowded very easily. Again the check-out/cashier staff were very friendly and helpful. This LEGOLAND is located in the local shopping mall so there is ample parking outside and (as an adult) you can go shopping before or after going to LEGOLAND, get a bit to eat, etc. (They do have a small café inside LEGOLAND as well. The only restrooms are inside on the second floor so plan accordingly.) The entrance to LEGOLAND, however, is externally and not from within the mall. The negatives from the visit was that not everything was working as it should and they didn't really have many staff (or any) in the play areas to help interact with the kids (learning or education moments) or to pick-up and re-organize the area. The positives was that, hey, its legos and seeing the different creative creations was good and my daughter liked playing in the area. Having an active water feature and play area was a nice touch. Also the entry and exit staff were very friendly and helpful. They are sort of stuck between trying to be a discovery center for kids (more local thing for kids to visit multiple times) and an actual LEGOLAND amusement (tourist draw, shows, events, rides, etc.) and don't do either one very well, but it has elements of both and little kids seemed to enjoy it.

"Activity Packs "

The kids had a great time my only complain would the the activity packs that I bought for them. Those are a waste of money, not worth getting at all.

"Overall worth the price, but skip the Activity Pack"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

Lots of fun things for our 6- and 9-year-old to do and see. The rides were better than we expected, and there was plenty to keep the family entertained for hours. My only recommendation would be to skip the $5 Activity Pack. There was so much else to do, our kids soon forgot about theirs and didn’t want to wear the lanyards. Not all of the stamp machines worked anyway, so we chalked that up as a loss.

This place is incredible! Lots to look at and just dream!!!! The only thing I don’t understand stand is my cousin is a LEGO VIP member and couldn’t use her rewards at the store in LEGOland, she had to go to the mall and use? Made no sense to me, so go buy your legos at the mall, not LEGO land, because they said they aren’t a store even though they sell LEGO ‘s
