SO now you have read the PR summary..here is our experience!
We went to the press opening, and I am hoping this is why it was super packed and I think you would of course enjoy it better if you are lucky enough to go when it is reasonably empty – probably at opening time. Unfortunately our overall feeling was disappointment…
We brought 4 children, a girl age 5, a boy age 7, a girl age 9 and boy,11. In previous years there has been something for everyone but this year the Lego Park has definitely got a lot smaller and much less exciting. The older two lined up for a while for a really short Ninjago laser game…They name it cleverly but it really has nothing Ninjago about it. You don’t have laser vests – you get points by shooting other people’s guns. They enjoyed it but it was so short considering how long they waited. They then wanted to line up for the 7D show but the wait was crazy. Feedback from others was that it was not very impressive and only lasted 5 minutes, so perhaps not the end of the world they missed that. They enjoyed some games on the PlayStation and Lego Friends dance game. They also had a ride on the helicopter ride which was OK but definitely aimed at younger children. That was it for them…they could have played with the Lego, but it was quite crowded and it didn’t draw them in.
Unfortunately my 5 year old was not in the mood for much…so she could have had a go on the little train, but this really is aimed at toddlers. There was a cute carousel for young children too. She wanted to color so we went over to the gymboree area which looked colorful and cute for babies and had tables for coloring pictures. We were asked her age though, and I was told it was only for the under 4s and she couldn’t color. This was a shame, and although I persuaded them to let her in if we promised not to play on the baby soft play, my daughter obviously didn’t want to go in. They really should have put the coloring in a more available area…not that you need to pay entry to a park to sit and color a picture! We did have a little play with the lego and my kids did their best to watch a batman lego movie they could barely hear.
In summary, only go to this if you can find seriously reduced tickets – I think some credit cards have 1+1. If you need a cool place to play, and want an alternative to gymborees, young children – age 3-7 could have a good time if they get into Lego building and have patience to wait for a little ride. It is nothing special but can make a change from whatever you normally do…and if it is empty enough when you go, it might even be enjoyable!
