I first took my daughter here when she was about 6. We probably stayed about 3 hours then. Now she's 9 most of the fun has gone. This weekend we were there about an hour before she got bored. This isn't necessarily a criticism of the place just advice that I believe it's better suited to smaller children. Rides are... More

We visited legoland as we have recently become Merlin Annual Pass holders (excellent value for money by the way). We only fell short of 5 stars for this review as there is some ongoing work. However other this we could not fault! As you go into legoland the kids get involved in a lego making machine and then there is... More

We visited yesterday as part of our Merlin passes. Had a good day from 1pm until 5. Boys aged 3 and 6 enjoyed it but glad we hadn't been and paid £60 which would have been the online price. It is only small. Little pretend factory talk at the beginning getting the kids to join in was ok, first ride... More

Never sure what to expect of such places wasn't a bad experience but equally not a great one either, clearly predominantly aimed at a very very young audience. The two children I took along at 11 & 9 were too tall for a couple of the attractions. Everything is spotless, staff are super friendly but its not huge, a couple... More

Came here for our little ones 4th birthday. We had already paid online for the tickets so except to turn up and go straight in, oh no!!

My kids (5 and 9) have a fabulous time every time we go, the venue is just the right size for a monring out, taking up a good part of a day of the holidays including lunch.

Went with 3 small children which cost £40. Inside is nicely done with a couple of small rides and plenty of play areas. Tons of lego to use and build with so the kids enjoyed it. Very expensive if pay full price and definitely not worth that so only go if you get your tickets from outside in the Trafford... More
