  • Lego. It's fun, it's creative, colorful and educational - so why have these guys got it so badly wrong? Massive ques with limited tills for both pre paid & pay on the day start you off thinking why ha...  more »
  • Took our 3yr old for his birthday this week and it was a real hit - he's just getting into Lego and Megablocks at the moment. The rides are fun for any child over 90cm and he really enjoyed himself. F...  more »
  • I've been wanting to take my kids here for a while, but my middle wasn't quite at the point where he could have enjoyed it as he has special needs. I decided that he was now at a point where he could ...  more »
  • We weren't sure what to expect from a legoland stuck on the side of a shopping mall, and only planned on spending a couple of hours here with our six year old. We had to drag him away after three and a half, so something was going well. Plenty to do, and it feels like a very safe and clean space for any kid, but particularly those that love Lego. Some good little rides and interesting classes too.
  • As my childhood toy of choice, I wanted to introduce my son to the joy of Lego, and thought a visit to the discovery centre would be good idea. I knew that booking tickets online was cheaper than buying that at the door, but you can't book less than 24 hours in advance. On arriving at 10am there was already a queue, and we were given a time to come back at - 11:15. I have to agree with the other reviews - this booking system needs an overhaul, and should allow customers to book slots themselves. And at less than 24 hours notice. That said, once we were in, we enjoyed ourselves. There's not a massive amount to see, especially compared to Lego Land, but then there's less room here. There could've been more buildings though. A particular frustration was the lack of policing of kids in the soft play area, with older children running about in the infant area, knocking them over. A security gate would easily remedy the problem. We liked building our own cars, and testing them out on the ramps, that was fun. A few more ideas like that, and we could've stayed for another hour. All in all, not bad, but certainly room for improvement.
  • Ideal for children around 4-8 who are into Lego. Younger than 4 means you cannot go on a couple of the rides. The play area was very good and situated next to a Costa for lunch and drinks (discount food and drink with an annual Merlin pass) which had a good selection of sandwiches including a gluten free wrap. There was a 4D cinema experience as well as being able to drive Lego cars and various hands on making zones. Amazing that they fitted so much into what looks like a small place. Can get combined tickets with the Sealife Centre next door for a discount.
  • This is hard to rate, the majority of the staff are welcoming, knowledgeable and friendly. Lego is a great toy and a decent company. However the attraction is run by Merlin and it feels so expensive for what it is. Our two had an OK time, however both eager to get out after a couple of hours.
  • I expect more from the Lego brand and for the amount you pay to get in. As a family we liked it but it just lacked that touch of quality. Only worth one visit you can do it all in a day.
