My kids and I visited the Legoland in Günzburg, Germany, three years ago when my kids were 7 and 10. We had a fantastic time, and so when a friend who works for Lego offered us free tickets to Legoland in Billund, we made the 1000-km drive up to Denmark from Prague to go on the last day of the season (the last day the tickets were valid).
It didn't help that we were there during the hurricane-force St. Jude's storm. Despite the rain and wind, the park was functioning as normal. However, we had the feeling that we had already seen and done everything in Germany, so we weren't really impressed. We were expecting the original park to be bigger and better, but it seemed a bit worn out - especially the Lego bricks on all of the creations, which are really showing their age. We are big fans of rollercoasters, and one of the main ones (The Dragon) was already closed for the season. I can't understand why they can't wait till the park closes to shut down a major ride.
Like others, I was aghast at the price-gouging at the stores in the park. Considering the Legos are literally made next door, they should be cheaper than elsewhere, not twice as expensive. We only stayed 2 hours because we were wet and bored after a short while and we didn't want to have to get lunch in one of the restaurants for twice the price and half the quality as elsewhere (or at least according to some of the other reviews I read).
All in all, I'm glad we made the trip up to Denmark, because it was a fun family road trip, but I am glad that we didn't have to pay for Legoland because then it would have been even more of a disappointment. Once is fine, and for younger kids, but for us, never again.
