A wonderful experience for children. Costly but still cheaper than Florida's Lego Land. If you have children or grandchildren it's a nice day out.

I took my 5 year old daughter and 4 year old son to Legoland. They had so much fun and were so energized walking through the attraction. We took many pictures and also had the activity book (which we paid extra for). We watched a short film in 4D experience and my kids loved it. They had a factory shop... More

We went with 9 people including 5 Kids age 2-11. The kids enjoyed all of it. Based on enjoyment I would give 5 stars, but the price moves it to 3 stars. $150.00 admission just for an afternoon for 9 people is expensive, and then there is the inevitable Lego store when you leave. The master builder class, 4D theater,... More

Spent several hours here with 5 kids. They all loved it. Good for kids under 12. Most of the activities are designed for younger kids. This is a discovery center not a "Lego Land". Make sure you know the difference ahead of time. We booked tickets online to avoid a rush. Big crowd when we arrived so we were glad... More

Thanks for visiting! Absolutely thrilled to hear about your families visit to the center, and that buying ahead of time helped save you time in the morning.

We traveled specifically to this location as it is the closest to our home, so our intention was to enjoy it as much as possible. If you are not able to get the cheaper tickets online ($13.50 for the later entry times), then you could be taking a chance of not getting in if you go during popular times (we... More

I'm so happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed their visit all the way from Columbus! I really love it when families enjoy the center so much that they choose to stay for 3, 4 or even 5 hours at a time. While Spring Break can be a busy time for us, we do our best not to... More

We went on a Saturday morning. We almost didn't get in as all slots were booked until 3pm. Definitely book online to assure a time slot. There were lines for the shows and rides, but it was a Saturday. The movies were meh, tour meh. My daughter enjoyed building cars, the jungle area and the rides. Kind of expensive but... More

Thanks for your visit! Saturdays are definitely popular times to arrive, so your advice of booking in advance is right on the money! If you'd rather use a couple, we also can book here onsite up to two months in advance of your visit, which is another option for those who live closer by. Glad you enjoyed and I hope... More

We visited Legoland late Tuesday evening in April. I had booked our tickets online to save some money and make sure we could get it. Since it was a weekday, the place was quite empty. My three year had a great time identifying all the Lego creatures. She also enjoyed playing with a whole bunch of Legos in one of... More

Awesome awesome awesome! Weekday nights can honestly be some of the best times to visit the center - you get plenty of chances to go on as many of the rides as you'd like, and you have access to thousands of LEGO Bricks at once! Next time, you can book your tickets at 4PM for the $13.50 price online and... More

Thanks for the review! Sorry to hear that you experienced a busy day last summer - this year we've implemented a virtual queuing system to try and reduce lines within the center and in our Admissions area. Since you don't live far away, you can also visit during the school year, which is far quieter especially on the weekdays. Hope... More

Buy tickets online (vs at door) for biggest discount. Food prices are crazy high in the food court. Went on a rainy day so it was packed but kids still had a blast! Movie, rides and of course tons of Legos to play with.
