    Many playthings for kids. We as adults enjoyed building with bricks, the Star Wars area, and of course mini-land USA.

    If you have kids between 4 and 12, this place is a million times better than Disneyland. Much more to do!

    Our kids (boy and girl of 9 years) loved it, but it's not so much fun for older kids and for the parents. The + : little waiting times, the -: it's quite expensive

    Not enough history of legos. Overpriced. Love the mini lego towns. Except san Fransisco and ny are mighty inaccurate.

    Too childish; I was expecting some districts positioned for adults but not. I just enjoyed miniland ; overpriced. In addition themes could be better ; I could not feel Lego's creativity inside!!

    Overrated and heavily commercialized, even compared to a few years back. A bit of a ripoff, charging extra for parking and some of the activities within the park.

    Extremely pricey for what you get, and a $15 parking fee is a huge misunderstanding... parking should be free of charge for guests

    Fun for the kids and Lego/Starwars geeks. Impress one of the employees by calling them "Lego bricks"! Because Lego's paranoid like that.

    The don't check bags so you might be able to sneak in food even though they say outside food is prohibited inside the park.

    Sick kid + bad signage from the roads made for a late arrival. Disappointed that no 1/2 day admission/parking. It would have made our trip better, I don't feel I will get $97 worth of fun in 4 hours.

    The water park gets crazy hectic upon opening. Wait 30 - 60 minutes to avoid long line in. There are family sized changing rooms & various locker sizes (go for the large locker at $9 for the day).

    People are very friendly. Few rides are for kids under 36". Only one spot for like 2 year olds. You have to have a full outfit on for every ride in the park & shoes. Water rides only exception.

    Be sure to get there when the park opens otherwise the line in to the parking lot is brutal. We didn't find the rides much worth the wait but there is a lot of cool stuff to see if you just walk aroun
