Our fun time at Legoland
Our family had the opportunity to go to Lego Land in Southern California. The kids of course had a good time, but the adults also had a lot of fun.
There are places to actually play with Legos, the kind you have at home. One of the places is a racing area. Your child can create their own race car and race them down ramps against other race cars. This was one of my sons favorite parts of the whole day, and he still talks about it years later.
There is a store at Lego land, where you can buy legos of course! The neat thing was, you could buy hard to find pieces of legos. From people to sports ball legos, they had it. I know of some families, that when their kids grow up, the one fun toy they keep around for the kids and grandkids are the legos. They are never really outgrown.
Its nice at Legoland, because you can go to many areas designated to suit the age of our child or children. There is something for everyone there. We were surprised there were some rather fast roller coasters which were so much fun! ,
There are magnificent "sculptures" made of Legos as well. You can see small towns built out of legos, replicas of monuments and historical figures, as well as much loved favorite famous characters. From Spongebob Squarepants, to Darth Vader, to all kinds of wild animals, there was never a lack for an impressive creation! Some larger than life! There was a neat boat ride that was nice all on its own, but just observing the awesome sculptures were a real plus
One of the pictures shows my sons getting "knighted" by the Lego King. They had to accomplish several different things before this could happen. It was a lot of fun, and they learned a lot about lie long ago, during medieval times.
In another picture, you can see a child driving a car. This was so fun for all the kids that were old enough to do it. They actually earned a little license, with their picture on it, a little driving license! There were very real rules, and they needed to obey the laws of Lego land. You could also go on a different boat ride, where an adult or older child would be allowed to drive a real boat. It was so much fun.
You can easily spend a day there or more. If trying to include in a vacation, and in need of somewhere else to go, Sea World isn't all that far from there. It makes a wonderful family vacation that you will never forget.
