After spending a week in Chicago due to a funeral, it was nice to take our 10-year old son to something he could really enjoy. Actually, we thought we were only getting to go to a LegoStore. But, come to find out, we discovered it was also a discovery center...SCORE! The staff were friendly, telling me how to get discounted... More

We went here because we were given passes to get in. Otherwise, it would have cost us $18, which I'm glad we did not pay. It is important to note that we did not have kids with us. We were there on a Saturday, which was a big mistake because of the crowd. We slowly shuffled along and were constantly... More

Hi sgtrudz, Thanks for posting a review on TA! As a center designed specifically for children (especially younger children aged 3-10) I am sorry that you didn't enjoy your visit. Typically the children who visit the center have a wonderful time looking at our exhibits, and then head upstairs into our building areas where they can design their own racecars,... More

Legoland was much smaller than we expected, but not disappointing. For around $15 per ticket, we spent just over 2 hours with the boys (age 10 and 14, it was the 10 year old's birthday trip). We did not do the 4D short movies which I think would have been neat to see. However, the birthday boy had other plans!... More

Hi ExportLove, Thanks for writing a review on TA! I'm so happy to hear that your sons (including the birthday boy!) had a great visit at LEGOLAND Discovery Center - Chicago. Sometimes our rides do experience mechanical issues during operation, and I'm sorry that those affected your trip. I'm glad that the boys got a lot of time building and... More

A little on the pricey side, but everything Lego usually is. That being said, my son loved his visit and had a terrific time. He asks all the time to go back. It was very crowded when we were there (on a Sunday) so I would recommend a week day visit to beat the crowd. There is a lot to... More

I'm comparing this Legoland to the one in Kansas City we went too a couple of years ago. I would say the KC one is much better but our kids ages 3 and 6 had a good time. There were a couple of things that didn't work when you pushed the buttons. Our kids enjoyed the rides. From an adult... More

Hi Mackemper, Thanks for posting a review on TA! I'm happy to hear that your kids had a great time at the center, as that's obviously our #1 goal! I appreciate the feedback on having a soft landing zone for our race ramps - currently our blue race ramps have mesh to catch the cars without breaking them, while the... More

We visited on a Thursday afternoon with our sons who are 6 and 3. I read a lot of reviews before we went (and was impressed by Nick's professional responses) and was more impressed than I expected to be. We arrived around 2 (happy to see three school buses loading to leave) and stayed until close. The lines earlier in... More

As an adult I was completely appaled by the lack of things to do at Legoland. That being said, my six-year old had an amazing time and that's all that matters! I can't give it four or five stars because we both became overwhelmed by the amount of people in the building with few options to keep them busy. The... More

We've been to Legoland several times now. It has been crowded every single time we've gone. It is also extremely expensive (almost $100 in admission for 5 and that's before you even visit the gift shop!) for an attraction that only takes 2-3 hours at the most. However, my son is a Lego fanatic and loves to visit Legoland.

We got tickets online and got a free pass from Chic-fil-a so we saved quite a bit and I would still Say it felt overpriced. The 4-d experience was very forgettable. Glasses did not fit, they basically just spray water. Shedd Aquarium 4-d experience is much better. The Lego creation area seemed very messy and we got there when it... More
