"Great displays but...."
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed April 22, 2018 NEW
First time visit with young (3&5) children. Staff were welcoming, friendly, helpful and enthusiastic. The displays were wonderful. However we were very disappointed with both the first floor ride and the movie. Both were scary - we actually had to leave the movie. Both involved shooting but the movie seemed excessively violent. Surely there is a place here for a ‘softer’ movie for younger audiences.

It's a good place to go. The Lego constriction displayed is pretty amazing. The Chicago display was amazingly spot on and everything else is great to look at. If you're expecting Legoland like they have in Florida or California you will be disappointed. Here, they have 2 very small rides and the rest is made up of cool creations and an s load of Legos for kids to play with for as long as the parents can stay. Worth the trip. Kind of worth the money even though it can get expensive. Go for it.

"Amazing "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

It was pretty amazing. We have a son who loves LEGO’s and building them. Because we have such a LEGO fan, we are willingly forced to build them too. That’s why we know first hand that it takes lots of time and energy to build LEGO’s. I think they have a good variety of themes. You can find a LEGO mailbox to drop in your suggestions for what you would like to see them make. They have little work shops where you can learn to make whatever they are teaching that day. There is a play area where kids can make their own and play with other kids. There is seating for adults as well but I still saw a few standing. The 4 D movie was entertaining and it lasted 20 minutes. There was a total of four movies available to watch throughout the day with one theater. There was also plenty of hand sanitizers everywhere you looked which was great! We went during the week. I’m assuming it would be a little hectic during the weekend or on a holiday. Luckily, the lines to the ride, movie, etc were not long at all. The attendants were friendly and knowledgeable. The bathrooms were clean but there was only one bathroom on the first floor and two upstairs. We had a great time.

"Fine but we got free tickets"

I will be honest my son who looked forward to this trip more than any trip in a long time. Maybe his expectations were high and that was why he was disappointed. I think he was expecting more is all. He thought a lot of the things were cool. The first ride that involves shooting targets had a broken gun in the car we were in. He ended up using my gun which was awkward and made it hard. The creative areas were fine but we were also there along with a school trip. They were disrespectful and not watched very close. The one thing my son really enjoyed was the mini exchange. If you don't know what this is then for an extra fee you get to pick a mini fig and then exchange it with any worker you see that has one you would rather have. Overall I thought we got the value out of what we paid but it is hard to walk away seeing your son let down by the experience.

"Legoland Discover Center is as Advertised"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed April 03, 2018 NEW
Legoland Discover Center is as Advertised...I was just not that impressed. The best I can say it that it is like a small Children's Museum with everything made of Legos, but a Children's Museum would be better and more fun. In saying that, the kids did enjoy it. It was pretty crowded, when we went, but the kids were able to do everything in (about) 3 hours. The staff do a good job of regulating the number of people in there, so that did not damper my visit or review. The two rides were...meh. The 4D movie was cool, the kids really enjoyed that. Otherwise, the kids just liked building random stuff with Legos and getting (somewhat) wet at the water table. I'd say the 9 year old may have been on the older side and not enjoyed it as much. If you can, buy tickets ahead of time, to save your spot and money.
