The place is fun for 6 years old . The Merlin ride is fun. The racing track is fun. The toddler play area is small but still fun. The place was very clean. But You take an elevator up after buying your ticket, and find yourself in a small room watching a loud video with poor sound quality. Then the Kingdom Quest ride, or as it should be called, the Ideas for Nightmares ride. You ride in a little car and are supposed to shoot guns (!) at videos of skeletons and trolls swinging swords and throwing rocks at you. I was most disappointed in the staff. Mostly young college students that do not seem trained well in how to run the place efficiently or in customer service. The lines to enter are long, and pre-purchasing tickets online puts you in the same line as people buying their tickets at the center. I do advice bringing your lunch as the lunch choices are slim and can be a little expensive. I wish they had a better trained and more attentive staff. FREE parking and plenty to do around the building.
My son loved this place, so that is all that matters, right. Very interactive. In my opinion it's kinda expensive at $23 a pop for ages 2 and up. Anywho when you first walk in there is this rotunda with panels and you are kinda racing to make a Lego person or something. In my opinion it was kinda boring. So we left and went to the next attraction. This one was a ride where you try to help the princess get free, so you're sitting in a car and shooting at spiders and enemy's. It was really cute. The next attraction was a room with a Lego City built to mimic the City of Boston, old and modern day. To me this was my favorite part. The detail was soo intricate and the lights even doomed in the room and you saw fireworks by Fenway Park and the buildings lit up. It was also done interactive parts to the building as well. The final area is a large play area. It has a small scale go-around, a 4-D theater, a jungle gym, and a build a race car area along with the food cafe. The 4-D movie we saw was a Lego movie short clip. If you've never been to a 4-D movie it's a 3-D movie plus effects such as wind, water, foam, and bubbles. It's really fun and adds an element of surprise because you don't necessarily know when is coming. And it's not like a tidal wave of water, just a lil sprinkle or so. Zachary wasn't amused by that, but he enjoyed it.
This place was amazing!! My 9 year old daughter and 8 year old son loved it and had a blast. ( so did my 30 year old boyfriend) we had a great experience and the staff was friendly and helpful. Prices were great too!
Very fun, convenient location. I would probably wait for kids that were 4-5+ years old. Kids younger than that might get overwhelmed by the space and the older kids running around. My 3 year old got crowded out by a group of 12 year olds and really wasn't having much fun. I know if he was a little older, he could have held his own a bit better.
Really fun for adults and kids. The place isn't very big and I'd recommend going on a slow day as i can imagine it'd be a nightmare when packed with kids. The premade display Lego city was incredible. Depending on how many kids in your group (and how busy it is) expect to spend about 2-3 hours before you get bored. The Lego gift shop afterwards isn't anything special, and Amazon will always be cheaper, but your kids will demand something. Expect it.
