It costs around $19 per person to get in. Once inside they have VERY limited activities and you are basically paying to play with Legos. I would not go back.

Crowded, but orderly, well thought out pathways. Interesting scenes and a nice room for building models. Overall, the children had a great time. We were there for hours.

Legoland was an okay experience. Much smaller than expected, but the energy was vibrant throughout. Older kids enjoyed the 3D movie and Lego building class more than anything else. My toddler enjoyed the waterfall and playground upstairs. Now, mind you, my 2 1/2 year old son is 35 inches tall, and they refused him to get on the helicopter ride... More

My kids thoroughly enjoyed Legoland Discovery Center. After reading the online reviews I was very torn about taking the kids as the cost was pretty high - even after a discount through my company. But, the kids absolutely loved this place and didn't want to leave. We were there for about four hours and they wanted to stay longer. My... More

I think I was more excited than my son about this destination. But was disappointed with the value of this attraction. We spent less than 90 minutes before we had covered almost all the areas and we're ready to go. It was a nice stop and let us stretch our legs while on a road trip, but was expecting much... More

This was my first time at Legoland. My granddaughter enjoyed the Pirates ship the most. It is not staff supervised area, yet all children during our visit played great together. The food is overwhelming expensive! The staff was pleasant although Lego Factory was packed and I believe could be scheduled a little closer together. I ordered our tickets online.

Paid $40 and stayed an hour! The place was crawling with kids who were out of control, Legos laying out where you walk and long lines for everything. Unless your child is a hard core Lego

Visited legoland with a 4 year old, 2 year old and 5 month old today. The 4 year old loved it, 2 year old was pretty much either scared or bored. I thought it was overpriced for what they had, but the 4 year old loved the 4D movie and the other rides, which are included in the price.
