“After 3pm online admission was great...”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Overall this place was fun and worth the $12 admission we piad by buying online and going after 3pm. I don't think the value would be there for the regular $21 admission or $15.00 online before 3pm admission. For what we paid, we had a blast and got our money's worth.

Reviewed August 11, 2013

If you have children this is a great place Legos, Legos! Adults can enjoy the exhibits but other than that it's a kids place! They have a ride again it's a kid ride not for Adults! The Lego Store is great who buys legos by the pound!

“Nothing exceptional but ok considering it's in a mall.”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We went online and bought the after 3 passes which made it $36 for three of us. I would definitely order tickets online first. As for the facility itself? It was dirty and in disrepair. I was very disappointed with the 4-D attraction. I suppose if you call having a fan blow on you periodically, then it's 4-D. I think there was suppose to be water, heat and cold at certain parts of the movie, but evidently, it didn't work. The factory tour was kind of weak too. The kids were called to the front, which was great, but parents were just left to stand around because it was impossible to see or really hear. The food area floor was especially dirty. Bathrooms were out of toilet paper and the bag hooks were gone. (I dislike setting my purse on bathroom floors) My son who is 8 did enjoy the place and I'm glad about that. I don't think we would return to this location but it was ok for a one time thing.

“Better than expected”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

I tossed around the idea of taking my 5 1/2 year old to LEGOLAND as I wasn't sure it was going to be worth it, I was pleasantly surprised. I ordered our tickets online and saved about $5 on each admission making it $30 for the 2 of us. When you order tickets, you choose the time that you want to enter, I would definitely suggest doing this. There were people buying tickets who were walking up, but I wanted to be sure we got in at a certain time, so I didn't take that chance. When you order tickets online, you also receive a stationery kit. It is amazing the things they have made out of Lego's starting with the giraffe outside the entrance to Albert Einstein's face inside, very cool! The Chicago skyline was incredible, I just wonder how long it took to build it. I was a little concerned if my son would be scared on the ride, but he wasn't and it is very short. The Lego factory was fun and the 3 d movie was also cool. He had never seen a 3 d movie so it was fun to see him reaching out for the different objects. After these areas, is the play area, including the jungle gym, build a vehicle and race it, build a skyscraper and see if it will stand up to the earthquake, and the ride that you pedal to go up in the air. My son could have stayed in here the rest of the day, but I got him out at the 2 /12 hour mark. He wanted to go back the next day, so he really enjoyed it. If we lived close by, we would definitely buy the yearly pass. I would think it would get old after a while, but I'm not 5 1/2! There is a café in the play area, we didn't get anything as we had just eaten before we went in. Of course you exit through the gift shop, and I'm sure just about everyone makes a purchase before leaving! Would definitely take him again, there is one in Atlanta that we might visit in the future.

“Fun for grandkids but buy tickets on line”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

We took our 3 grandchildren ages 6, 4 and 3 years of age. They enjoyed it very much. They really liked the rides and lego building zone area. Advice would be to always purchase the tickets on line and go after 3 pm when the crowds are less.
