My 11 year old daughter and I have visited Legoland twice since they have opened and both times we had a lots of fun! Having been in theme park operation management, I was truly amazed at how well trained their staff was. For example, last Sunday as we were walking up to the zebra car ride, one of the employees said to me, "Do you have a map?" and gave me one right out of his pocket. We ate lunch expecting very little for the money, but had really good food, sat by the lake watching real turtles and when we were finished, one of the fellows cleaning trash cans walked over, picked up our tray and said "Let me get that for you". My eleven year old is a daredevil, hard core roller coaster rider and she still loves Legoland. Her favorite is the driving school where the kids can really drive cars with traffic lights, stop signs and even a round about. By the way, this is very entertaining to all of the parents watching. If I have to look for a negative, I would say that we were kind of bored with the ski show (wishing for more action). The most unexpected thing about Legoland is that the grounds are beautiful and instead of being all concrete as you might expect, there are large park like areas right in the middle of the park. We also loved the fact that Legoland shows great appreciation to the former Cypress Gardens with the lego Southern Belles, signs as guests enter the original gardens area and with mentions on the Island in the Sky narrative. For those critics of height requirements on the rides, even the big wooden roller coaster only has a height requirement of 36 inches! For those critics of cost, take a look around the park and imagine how much it must have cost to create this beautiful park with all of these rides and employ 1,000 people. If you live anywhere inFlorida, get an annual pass and spread the cost over many visits. All of this said, the real reason to visit Legoland is to spend some quality time with your kids riding rides designed for them and many rides that the parents and kids can ride together.
