Something for the kid in everyoneFlag review
Legoland is just as much fun for the grown-ups as it is for the kids. Miniland is a favorite for my whole family, especially the mini space shuttle and the remote control mini boats (cost £1 to drive)--although be careful with these, as they don't always work. My kids particularly love the driving school, where they watch a short video on the rules of the "road" and then are let loose to drive around an enclosed course. You can even buy them a Legoland driving license complete with their photo. There are two separate driving schools, one for 3 to 5-year-olds and one for those aged 6 to 13. Other highlights include Pirate's Landing, where actors stage shows several times a day, and the Lego Star Wars Miniland Experience--seven classic Star Wars scenes presented in Lego--complete with moving pieces, lights, and sound, will be a favorite for everyone except the very youngest visitors, who might find the experience a bit too loud and scary.
Tips for Families
Kids eat free in the park's restaurants after 3:00, although you can bring in your own picnic. We generally stay until the park closes and eat in one of the restaurants before leaving. This is especially wise because, if you have driven to the park, you can wait in line for an hour or more to exit the car park. There are a few water rides here, so make sure you're prepared with a waterproof jacket if it's not a warm day. There are rain ponchos available to buy, but they're a little expensive. You can rent a "Q-Bot" to reserve a place in line for a ride, bypassing lengthy waits. Prices start at £26.55, but check the Legoland website for more details. There is also a play area for the littler ones who might need a break from waiting in line for rides or just need to run around and let off steam. Legoland opened up a fantastic-looking hotel on park property in the Spring of 2011, and though my family hasn't stayed there, it looks amazing and well worth a visit.
