Before I start the review I would like to say the staff at legoland are fantastic and a credit to the Merlin entertainment who are the owners. They could not help enough. The issue with this legoland is that it is tiny. We took our 18 month year old son who is obsessed with lego and within minutes we realised... More

We visited recently with a 14 year old lego fanatic and a twelve year old, My son has aspergers and is quite young for his age. He was absolutely bored rigid. I imagine this place would be great for 3 to 6 year olds.

So we had the 50% off voucher from macdonald happy meals so thought we'd spend the day at the Trafford centre with a visit here then to the cinema. Online prices were about £52 but to use the voucher you had to pay the door prices. With 50% off this came to £42 so a saving of £10. You have... More

Shocking, I will never no again. Very cramped and it was getting refurbished. They were still letting people come in. I got a refund! The staff were nice, it's not there fault but the greedy owners I suspect. I won't go again.

We came here on a day when 2 of the rides/ areas were under maintenance. So they stamped our tickets valid for another re-entry till the end of the year. Tickets at the door were quite expensive. Best book online at least the day before to get cheaper entry. Rides are suitable for younger kids. Plenty of Lego building areas.... More
