I was torn between a 3 and 4 rating and here's why: For a 5 year old who loves lego, it was perfect. There were a lot of rides that were age appropriate for his age and only one of them was too scary- only figured that out AFTER the ride unfortunately. I think it was called the Accelerator-so be advised! We went on a Thursday and the longest wait was maybe 10 minutes so that was a PLUS too for a 5 year old. My disappointment was that the shows were boring and they really have room for more fun things than they had. We went in the winter time around Christmas thinking it would be fun with Christmas deco's, but don't expect much- nothing like Disneyland. I recommend going in the spring/summer more because there were a lot of water rides/attractions that we did not do because it was too cold. They had plenty of places to grab a bote as well, but like any other place it was expensive. You can bring your own food in as well. Overall, if you have a child between 3-7 that loves legos, then is it is a MUST SEE. If you're just looking for fun things to do, there are better cheaper ways for sure.
