The lego sculptures were fun to see, but where is the wall of legos to purchase? This place is way too small compared to other lego stores!

I was hesitant about Legoland after hearing negative things about it. We decided to try it anyway on a rainy day because our other options were limited. My four year old likes legos but isn't a giant lego fan. He did have a blast though. He enjoyed looking at the lego sculptures on the first floor but really enjoyed the... More

I read quite a few bad reviews and we almost did not go today. We enjoyed the whole experience. Every staff member we came in contact with was professional, friendly and nice to talk to. The whole facility was really clean. We really enjoyed the Dragon Quest ride and my kids loved the other ride. The playground was bigger than... More

It's a small place and the crowds just overwhelm it. Go early to avoid, book online ahead of time to save $2/ticket

Hi Dan, Thanks for visiting LEGOLAND Discovery Center! Saturday afternoons are typically are most crowded time of the week when school is in session, I'd really recommend visiting in the late afternoon (after 3PM) for a bigger discount online and smaller crowds inside! Thanks for visiting! Nick General Manager More

It was so cool to see all the displays made out of Lego's. Even at the entrance there is a giant Giraffe of all Lego's. The attraction is kind of small, ok for the price, if you know for sure what day you will go buy tickets online, much cheaper. They have short movies that you can watch, lots of... More

I went there with my 4 years old daughter, in the starting it was good when we went through the exhibits (although the kids were scared of entering and not at all willing to pass through), the Lego tour was just Okay, but the 4D experience was not at all worth. It would have been better to call it just... More

Hi PoojaGargGupta, Thanks for visiting! I'm certainly glad to hear that your daughter had fun at the center, but I am sorry to hear that you were missed by our sprinklers in the 4D Cinema! Also, unfortunately guests are not able to take their LEGO models home with them, as we need to be sure to clean or replace the... More

Took my 2.5 year old for a spontaneous visit to Legoland Discovery Center yesterday, and was very pleasantly surprised! Since he's so young, he didn't require a ticket, but the one downside is that each accompanying adult pays full price $18.90 with tax, which is a bit pricey. However, the experience we had was wonderful! My son was delighted by... More

We always love going to LEGOLAND when we are in Schaumburg. It's a great place to take the kids. The only problem is that it is always crowded. Plan on getting there a little before it opens to be close to the front of the line waiting to get in, and to get to see everything without a lot of... More

Hello! Thanks for visiting! I'm really happy to hear that your sons enjoyed their visit to the center, and I do apologize for the crowds. The end of summer vacation is a very popular time for guests to visit the center, and I always suggest that guests arrive around opening or after 3PM and to book online, as it guarantees... More

We are spoiled from the Lego KidsFest with so many things to explore. The Lego Discovery World is just a small, nicely arranged place with similar, but fewer action fields. We spent some time there, the kids were excited, but the admission is too pricey for this small place. We were lucky to be there early with not many visitors.... More
