We took our kids (10, 6, 2) to this park and they absolutely loved it. The park is new and the staff is very friendly. Highly recommend this park.

We took our kids (9 and 7) to the AAA preview, just before the park opened to the public. The park is a little bit out of the way, in Winter Haven and takes a little longer than expected to get to. The static Lego displays are great for photo opportunities but the main attraction for the kids are the rides. There are at least 20 rides the kids can go on. They are fairly short, not particularly scary and the kids loved them. The lines were reasonable, about 25 mins at the longest (although this was a preview day). Older kids will still find the rides entertaining, but the rides are not thrilling enough nor long enough for adults. We also thought the food was reasonably priced. All in all a great day for the family.

My friend and i took our 2 boys (9 and 10) to Legoland in Winter Haven, Florida last week as a surprise. We got a great package on room and tickets from comfort suites in orlando on rt 192. we went to legoland for 2 days, Sunday and Monday and believe it or not Sunday was less crowded. The park can be done in 1 day but we didnt want to rush and don't know when we will return. the price of the tickets with out a package is a little steep $65 for kids $75 for adults if you dont do a package with a hotel i would upgrade to plus tickets cause u get free parking and 10% off in gift shop. The water skiing show was very cute looks like they are using some of the features from cyress garden park they took over and revamped to legoland. The food was actually very good and not too expensive. moms were able to get a salad at every meal! There are 4 roller coaster and they aren't really scary. Not too many hands on things alot of rides and 3 little movies u can see. the mini land is very impressive we must have looked at it for half an hour. park hours are not crazy from 10 to 5 right now may change in summer or holidays and the shop near entrance stays open past 5pm (of course) kids had a great time!!

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.

Recently visited LegoLand with grandsons (age 4 and 7) and were extremely disappointed. Ticket prices now up to $75 at the gate for a park only opened limited hours (from 10 AM to 5 PM). "Midway" type games around park are expensive, e.g. $4 for 2 balls to toss. Food was OK but very limited at food stations, e.g., hamburger stand only sold 4 types of hamburger combos. Would not sell extra french fries or extra drink. If you did not want a hamburger, you had to go to another section of park to the hotdog stand or another section of the park to get fired apples, etc. Rides were even more disappointing. Posted wait times of 15 minutes generally took 45 minutes. Ride safety was a big concern. At "jousting" ride, only 2 staff were present and even though children were belted onto horse, there were no staff in the "riding" area. This was especially true when special needs children were placed on the ride Also, when ride broke down, they left children sitting on horses in middle of ride area for over 20 minutes. At "boat ride", no one was assisting in loading. Only a gate attendant was present who was controlling admission. On one occasion, I saw 2 grandparents with 2 grandchildren. The lady was having trouble stepping into boat and gate attendant just stood there watching while her husband got out of another boat and came over to assist the lady in stepping into boat. On car driving ride, the additional $15 for a "driver's license" is a rip-off. On the fire truck ride, attendant was asking people to stay in truck until all vehicles returned to start point however doors were not latched and children were free to exit vehicle and run out into paths of adjacent vehicles while attendant was at opposite end of ride. All rides we saw appeared to be under staffed. Exit gates were generally unattended and gates were often unlatched allowing entry to ride area. Very suprised to see these safety issues. As adults, we did enjoy the lego mini-city and the various figures constructed from lego blocks. The children did enjoy the play ground areas.
