Legoland's theme is their park brings out the hero in everyone. Legoland itself has over 60 rides, shows and attractions to entertain, amuse and amaze for hours. And don't forget their two water parks!
I have repeatedly heard that the park is best for 3-6 year olds. After having been there, I would argue that kids up to about 12 years old would still be entertained. Especially with some of the more thrilling rides such as The Dragon and Lego Technic Coasters or the Knights Tournament ride.
One thing we really liked about the park is that roughly 1/2 of it seemed to be designed for the younger set and the other half for the older kids. There was no shortage of activities, especially water based, for our (at the time) 6 year old son and 4 year old daughter. Legoland can get surprisingly hot and the water features were wonderful.
I noticed that many playgroups met there, especially since we went on a weekday. Kids and moms came prepared with towels and pre-packed coolers.
Legoland has 2 water parks attached to the property- Legoland Water Park and Lego Chima Water Park. Between the 2 water parks there are over 15 rides and water based activities.
Aquarium Sea Life is right next to Legoland. It is designed to be a child's first interactive guide to the life of the sea. The aquarium combines active, hands-on learning with fascinating educational talks, and opportunities to have up close and personal encounters with a variety of sea creatures including sharks. Park hopper tickets can be purchased for both parks.
Legoland also has a fully themed hotel on the property. Sleep, eat, and play without every leaving!
