and now for a tip on admission. if you go online and print your tickets before your trip, you will save a few bucks and guarantee that you can get in (it gets crowded and there is a capacity limit i'm sure). the boys, however, receive a lego magazine in the mail (it's free!) and whenever it comes, there is always a coupon for a free child's admission. that said, it was actually cheaper for us to use those and purchase our adult tickets there (because you can't use the coupons online) than it was for us to print them off online. so that's the scoop on ticketing. and we went before most kids were out of school to eliminate the chance of it being too crowded to get in.
next up was a laser ride. we boarded a ride that led us through different lego scenes and we had laser guns to shoot the bad guys. there was a digital reader that kept track of how many we shot to see who shot the most. this was fun but only lasted a few minutes.

our last attraction was a ride that went around in circles and as you pedaled, you climbed higher and higher.

so here's my two cents about this place. it was fun and my boys certainly had a good time. is it overpriced? yes. but i am a cheapskate! was there a lot to do? not really. should you buy a season pass? i sure would not!
i say it's a fun thing to do once a year, and hopefully they'll change things up a bit each year to keep it interesting. otherwise, i was a little disappointed. when you hear the commercials about this place, they tout it being full of thousands and thousands of legos with the idea that you get to play with them all. not so. it took thousands and thousands of legos to build all those neat little buildings that are on display that you're not allowed to touch.
so a little disappointing but we still had a fun time!
