There's plenty of stuff here for the Lego enthusiast. Once you're in you can stay as long as you like. There are a few fun rides for the kids, lots of places to build with Lego and the 4D Lego cinema. We managed to see 2 of their short movies while we were there. We bought our tickets online with...

Take 2 x four year olds add bricks, soft play, rides, a master class, the brick factory and the cinema and you make an awesome experience. Well worth the money at this age. All the staff are really helpful, interactive with the kids and excited to be part of the experience. Eddie Jennings was totally awesome, thanks.

Highly overpriced. This is essentially an indoor play area with a couple of very small rides. Its decorated in the lego theme but other than that isn't really a lego discovery centre! It also has a heavily overpriced store at the end! But on amazon!

I visited with my 10 yr old daughter who loves Lego but she found the experience a bit dull. It's quite small and the attractions are mainly on 1 floor. It's probably suited to much younger children. We stayed about 1.5 hrs and that was a push. The staff were really great though - pleasant and helpful. The cafe is... More

Enjoyed our visit with one of our grandsons who is a lego fan. Used tesco vouchers as entry because the attraction, whilst being varied, is not worth the full price. There is enough to do with model building and included rides but there are far too many photo opportunities taken by staff which are a rip-off and so ignored. Staff... More

This is a glorified play centre and nothing like Legoland it's self, there was no where near enough Lego in my opinion the kids enjoyed it, the 4d cinema is good and they loved the Lego drivers mini track and the train ride it's a good couple of hours out if you are not expecting too much we had grown...

Ok Lego is great we all love it otherwise why would you be going but considering the alternative things to do this place isn't cheap or great I'm afraid. The first ride a laser shooter thingy was ok but its bigger and better in most other places and was average at best. The 4D wasn't the best either a bit... More
