My wife found a deal online that got us in for 50%. If we didn't do that, I'm not sure it would have been worth it. It's a two-story attraction. If you like LEGO's, just invest in LEGO's. I will say, there was something to do for all ages of kids and they did enjoy themselves, but I don't see my family returning anytime soon.

"Great Lego structures, boring activities"

My wife and I took our 6 and 8 year old girls to Lego land Discovery this past weekend. Walking in to see the Chicago layout and Jungle environment was amazing (Soldier Field was spectacular, and I'm a Packer fan!). However, it was mostly downhill from there. Aside from the 'Save the Princess ride where you use a semi-functional laser pointing gun to shoot spiders and such, the other activities weren't too exciting. An air-type carousel you pedal to rise up was not so great, and while my 6 year old liked the various lego movies on the large screen, their billing as 4-D was a misnomer as there were no 3D glasses, no heat, no water spray (despite each movie clearly set up to feel these effects). When I asked the staff about it, they said, the 4D movies were 'not today' (calling BS on that one). We made a few structures at the stations, built a lego car, and completed the Secret Mission (NOT worth the extra $5). I suppose it was worth visiting once, bit aside from stopping by to find an occasional hard to find Lego set, we would not visit the Lego Discovery land again

"Lame"

My 5 yr old was sooo excited to go here, and was bored almost instantly. Its cool to see the random lego creations, but the set up, rides, movie, etc. we're crappy for what was advertised and for the amount we had to pay. The "Kingdom" ride was halted twice when we were in line, they had to re-set it and took 15 min each time. The "4D" movie was 2D with some water sprinkled on us twice. There was a small play area and some over crowded lego building areas. We were out of there in a little more than an hour, sad considering the 20 min movie and 40 min standing in line for a 90 second ride.

I have a large family of 6 with kids from 3, 9, 11, & 14 so finding things to do that make everyone happy is hard. This fits the bill. It definitely slants to the under 12 crowd but there was still things to see and do for the older kids. I recommend the Go City Pass for this it saved us a lot of money.

Fun but pricey. Kids enjoyed it but personally not worth the money. Would go again if I had a coupon or some kind of discount but don't think I'd pay full price again.
