LegoLand–Who Knew?

Last year, my husband and Little Boy G and I visited the grand parents in California. We took a trip to LegoLand, which I read was a great place to take the kids. And my review? FANTASTIC. Go! Now!

I loved the park for many reasons, and not just because Volvos had parking all to themselves close to they entry. The entire layout of the park is amazing. You’ll see things that will make your jaw drop. The picture above is just one of many miniature Lego constructions in the Minland USA section. From their website: “Miniland USA presents famous landmarks built entirely from standard LEGO elements. Guests experience the wonders of  Washington D.C., New Orleans, New York City, FloridaSan Francisco and the Southern California coastline – in miniature – right down to the smallest detail. Also, don’t miss Las Vegas which features a variety of whimsical and animated models that replicate scenes found in the actual city. For a nominal fee, you can even navigate your own mini boat in the LEGOLAND Marina.”

Little Boy G LOVED it, but so did we. He even got to drive a little mini Volvo around a track with other kids (3-5 in age) at the Volvo Mini Driving school for little ones. A similar attraction, the Volvo Driving School is for older kids (6-13), and also looks like a lot of fun.

An abundance of Lego-themed rides kept our little one quite entertained.  The Flight Squadron was particularly fun, as was Fairy Tale Brook, where you get to ride on a boat through a little fairy land. Both rides require an adult.

If you ever find yourself in Southern California, you should consider visiting LegoLand. You won’t regret it.
