Our 4 grandchildren (6,5,4,2) had a wonderful time! 2 rides, a 4D movie, all kinds of amazing lego displays and hands on activity areas. Be sure to find coupons (Chick-fil-A) had coupons for free kids entry with a adult!

We visited here on a Tuesday morning with our 2 year old and 9 year old daughters. The admission prices were ridiculous- over $60 for 3 of us (2 year old was free), and then we were offered the activity pass for another $5. We took it, thinking it would be something special, but it was really just a bunch of cards on a lanyard that our 9 year old never even looked at. There were 3 or 4 different daycares/summer camps there with large groups of children that day, so there were a ton of kids running EVERYWHERE, screaming and throwing things and standing on top of displays- with minimal supervision (not Legoland's fault- just be aware that this may be a common occurrence in the summer months). There was really very little to actually DO. We spent the most time looking at the Chicago mini-land landscape, but some parts of which didn't work when we pushed the buttons that were supposed to create lights/sounds. We quickly walked through the jungle section (again, nothing to actually do- just some animal lego creations to look at). We enjoyed the Star Wars section, displays were cool, but nothing to DO but look at them. We did the Knights ride were we listened to two teenage camp counselors argue with another patron about budging in front of people in line before we finally got our turn. The ride lasted all of about 45 seconds. We went upstairs and our 9 year old went on the wizard ride, which she said was OK. The water play area upstairs consisted of the water table being filled with a bunch of Lego boat parts and kids splashing the water out everywhere with their hands. The area to build a car and try it on the racetrack was filled with kids throwing lego parts (not constructed into anything) down the ramps, so we skipped that. When we went to the Duplo area with the 2 year old, she was playing with a few blocks and building a tower- until a girl around 5 years old ran directly over to her and knocked it down and then ran off, which dissolved our daughter into tears and we went to the Lego Friends section- which was thankfully much quieter. The only thing to do in this section was sit at the table and just build with whatever random pieces were there. We decided to skip the 4D movie as we didn't want to wait for it to start and we did look in the store before we left. We quickly discovered that the prices were much more expensive than the Lego store at the nearby Woodfield Mall. So we left without buying anything. It was fairly dirty and messy for us being there before noon. There needed to be more hand sanitizer stations, and my husband said the soap dispenser in the men's bathroom didn't work. Definitely not worth the money. We can go to the Legoland area in the Mall of America and see cool Lego sculptures and spend time building our own Lego creations there- for free.

"10 year old really enjoyed it"

This is our second time to visit in 1 year and some of the exhibits changed plus we were thrilled that they now feature a lego building class with a master builder. Our 10 year old grandson was one of the older kids there but he had so much fun. Our grandsons are huge lego fans, runs in the family so this really was no surprise. Instead of a 3D movie as we saw last year, this was 4D, something incredible to experience. The "mini factory" where we saw bricks made was gone but I truly think with the whole area dedicated to interactiv play it lends to a better experience. We enjoy the one ride where you shoot at targets while riding in a moving car but the 2nd ride we could care less for. There is a nice area with water "river" to build a boat to float, tables etc to build and a nice curved track to send vehicles you build down. The jungle gym portion is spacious enough to accommodate many children but we opted to go midweek both times to make certain it wasn't too crowded. Our grandsons each at age 10 enjoyed the interactive exhibits, punch buttons for sounds etc of the Chicago exhibit, etc and the Star Wars room which was new to us was quite impressive. We are definitely going to take another grandson and possibly even granddaughters again. After leaving here we headed to Midevil Times just a few minutes away to end the day.

LEGOLAND was a very good kid event. The grandkids loved going here. They loved the Chicago exhibit especially after being there the day before and seeing the places we visited. There are plenty of opportunities for hands on activities. This is actually very small and only plan on a couple of hours. The store was pretty disappointing. Smaller than a LEGO store found in a mall. The kids had fun and enjoyed it but it was not a highlight of the trip as we thought. Definitely get a GROUPON or discount for this. Do not pay full price!
