We have recently brought merlin annual passes for myself, partner and our 3 year old. I thought I would check this place out whilst my partner was watching the match at old Trafford. We arrived quite late on a Sunday around 1.30- walked straight in and was taken on the tour straight away. I found it overall good and interactive... More

Took the kids in the summer holidays after reading up on the internet and thinking it looked pretty good...it's not. Although we got in pretty quickly it was hideously expensive. The factory bit as you walk in had the kids hooked but it's not anything like advertised. The rides are ok, shame there's not more there. Everywheres dirty and falling... More

Although this place isn't big we had an amazing time, we booked our tickets online so we didn't have to queue too long, the rides and 4D cinema were brilliant. The only major expense was the photographs from the rides but are a lovely keepsake. We ate afterwards in the Trafford centre but all in all an excellent day out

We've been to LegoLand Discovery Centre twice (January & July 2014) and had two very different experiences. The first time we were greeted by a queue about 45 minutes long and the main room (with most of the attraction and restaurant) was full to busting. One the second trip we arrived early and were the first ones in after a... More

We decided to visit legoland Manchester as a treat for our lego mad 3 year old before he started school. We went during the school holidays and should really have known better but with no mention of crazy holiday waiting times on the website we decided to risk it. After queuing outside for over 90 minutes we finally got inside.... More

We went in the summer holidays as part of a day out in Manchester. The entry fee is massively overpriced. we had four children aged between one and fifteen of which only the middle two could only really take part in 'most' things. The space was cramped, dark and dingy. We stayed for about a hour and that was plenty... More

We have Merlin Passes which entitles us to free entry to all of their attractions. I have to say, that value for money, this attraction is pretty poor and wouldn’t really advise anybody to pay full price. You can usually get pretty good discounts through the year by shopping around. Having said that, from an adult’s point of view, it... More
