We just went on our second visit to this Legoland. Our second experience was much, much worse than our first. This time around, the computers were down so they weren't letting any if us with confirmation numbers on mobile devices in, despite that the confirmation email said there wasn't a need to print. A man named Darren was up front and was being a complete butt about it, only allowing people with printed confirmations in, even ones scheduled for later time slots, because apparently writing down numbers with a good old fashioned pen and paper isn't something he could manage. He was extremely rude also. Once he finally figured out how to write down conf numbers and let us in, the lady in the next room wouldn't let us proceed without a receipt- which NO ONE entering had due to the computers being down. Derp! You're one room away- communicate!

We finally got in an started through to find the place dirty and with many broken items. There's a walk-through room with some local city scenes built that have interactive parts but most of those were broken. Two out of the six laser guns our group used in the ride were broken.

And all this for a super high price! What a rip off. Should you decide you're hungry while there, prepare yourself. The food prices are stupid-high. As if getting in wasn't enough! And then, if you want, you can buy pictures of yourself doing things in there for like $12 each.

Needless to say, we will never be back. From start to finish, this was a terrible experience. Oh, no, wait- the gift shop at the end was ok. So there's that at least.

The price was a little steep for what was there. The kids enjoyed it. One ride we went on broke half way through ride. We didn't go back to it. The Cafe prices were steep almost worse than a major amusement park. Recommend leaving and getting hand stamp and come back later or eat before you go depending time you go in.The 4d movie was good the kids really enjoyed it. If I had to do again I probably wouldn't unless I got a super discount. The overall place was not very big could do all the stations and a couple twice and be finished in a couple hours or less.

Lots of activities for their age range. The ride was cool and the lego displays were fabulous. They especially liked building and racing their own cars. The staff was very helpful. A bit pricey but you get a discount if you buy tickets for sealife at the same time.

We came for my 7yo, who is obsessed w Legos. We have a 7, 4, 2, and infant. We had a great coupon and so only paid for my and hubby. I'm sure the price made a difference, but we had a blast. The kids loves every moment of it. We stayed just over two hours and felt like we got our money's worth.
