Who does not have fond childhood memories of building with Legos? My siblings and I could spend hours--well, maybe days--creating. My daughter is now very involved with building creations. She especially loves working on Star Wars projects.
She had not been to the Star Wars exhibit at Legoland, so I thought that last weekend would be a good time for a visit. She had been to Legoland in the past, but I had not. So, she had a great time showing me the lay of the land!
We walked into Legoland on a Sunday afternoon and didn't know what to expect. There surprisingly were no long lines--which may have been due to the Bears game. The first floor had the bulk of the lego displays. We enjoyed admiring intricate creations including a mini Chicago! Amazing! My daughter was enthralled by the Lego exhibit.
We played a fun laser game. We are big fans of laser shooting games, so we felt that the one at Legoland should have some more targets.
Upstairs, things get a little more chaotic--so be prepared! Kids can watch short 4d movies, join a Master Builder Academy, build cars for a test track, play in a jungle gym and more. I think that this area was so busy because it was so hands-on. We had fun playing upstairs. However, the waits can get taxing. If you would like to be part of the Master Builder Academy, I recommend signing up right when you get to Legoland.
There is a little cafe upstairs as well for snacks. The food actually seemed reasonably priced and the meal deals and kids meals come with a minifigure. However, Legoland is in a shopping area, so there are other food options there as well.
We had an enjoyable time at Legoland. I can see where the attraction can get pretty crowded, so you will probably want to plan to visit during an off time. However, there was plenty of fun to be had so definitely have Legoland on your list for winter!
