Grab your kids, nieces, nephews and friends for a fun filled day of discovery and adventure. After visiting, I compiled a list of ten things you must do when visiting Legoland.
- Plan your visit. A day trip with the kids is always fun but can be stressful. Before leaving the house, make sure you have a game plan. How long are you spending at LegoLand? Are you eating before or at the mall? Check their site for business hours so you aren’t waiting around with kids anxious and ready to play.
- Know where you’re going. Grapevine Mills Mall is big, like really big. Legoland is located on the West side of the mall located next to the Movie Theater.
- Bring Socks. Well you don’t have to, but be sure that your little ones have on socks if they want to play on the City Play Zone and Fire Academy. Many people didn’t know this and were having to run around the mall with their kids in toll so they kids can play. Trust me the employees at Legoland WILL NOT let your kids in this area without socks.
- Purchase Your Tickets Online. We stood in line approximately 30 (THIRTY) minutes just to get tickets. There were only about 10 people in front of us, mostly families but for whatever reason it seemed to take forever for them to help us. If you purchase your ticket online you get a “Best Price Guarantee” and your wait won’t be nearly as long. There is a special line for people with pre-bought tickets.
- Stop and take a look at Miniland. Considering I was too big and tall to ride any rides or play on the City Play Zone, the Miniland was my favorite thing. Skilled lego artists have made some of Dallas’ most memorable landmarks out of Legos such as South Fork Ranch, Dallas Cowboys Stadium, Downtown Dallas and more!
- Watch the 4-D movie. The 4-D movie isn’t the best but it’s a nice change of pace from all the crazy kids running around Legoland. The film comes to life in the fourth dimension, as flurries of wind, rain, lightning and even snow burst into the auditorium! Every kid in the theater screamed and squealed with excitement.
- Ride the new Forest Pursuit. Well, you won’t be able to because of height restrictions (60 inches) but the kids will surely enjoy this adventure. Children will be able to take part in their own driving adventure as they are let loose upon forest pathways in their own off-road LEGO vehicles! The challenge is on to capture the robbers who have stolen gold bars from the City. The cars only drive a whopping 4 mph.
- Build cars and race them. Time your racing car on our speed test track. The stopwatch is exact to the hundredths of a second, so even the smallest change could make all the difference! There are all different types of tracks to test out your car building skills on.
- Sing at the top of your lungs. Stop by the Princess palace for some fun building princess castles and to sing karaoke on stage. Let your inner rockstar shine.
- Be Merlin’s Apprentice. Jump on the ride for some spins and to help Merlin conjure his magic. Guests must be a minimum of 3 foot tall to ride Merlin’s Apprentice. Guests between 36 inches tall and 48 inches tall must ride with an adult.
Legoland is full of adventure for children and adults. There will be lots of kids and screaming but it’s worth all of the fun that you will have. If you have a full day to spend, check out Sea Life Aquarium which is located directly across from Legoland. You are able to purchase a bundle package and save money when you want to do both!
