Visited here with our daughter, son-in-law, and our 7-year-old grandson. The place is amazing for its imagination, incredible Lego sculptures, and kid-level rides. That's the good part. However, I totally oppose those rip-off, impossible-to-win midway games, especially at a place like this where the main audience is young children. Kids are way to gullible at this age, and most parents are unable to talk the kids out of trying to win a $2 stuffed animal by spending $10 for 4 tries at throwing a basketball into a too-small hoop. In addition to the rip-off, I think they need more shaded seating for the old folks, but don't count on my money ever showing up here again.

Our 6 yr old Grandson loved Lego Land more than Disney parks we took in this week. It was less crowded by far. Could ride rides and not wait an hour in line. Great place

We were there for two days. Stayed off property. Park itself was a little long in the tooth. Many of the figures and signs built from legos were sun faded. In the mini land area some of the exhibits were broken, or falling apart. Lights hanging etc. kids had fun but longish wait times and shorter ride times. Building areas were good and they enjoyed them. Stay away from the burger station in the middle of the park. They were overpriced and awful. Service was bad too. The water park is newer and we did that second day. That was worth it. A nice attraction. But it was at the back of the park and you needed to hoof it 20 minutes to get there from the front entrance. They needed a shuttle. Overall ok to go, but won’t be back. Disney is worth the extra money

I loved the park overall, but the military line was extremely slow. The regular park ticket lines were much faster we waited in line an hour just to get the military pass and my girlfriend and our son already had their ticket from the ITT office so it was quite annoying. The park was great, but alot of the rides my son could not ride because of his height. This was frustrating because the park says it caters from 2-12, but my 6 year old is average for his age and he was unable to ride quite a few so that limited his play.

Disclaimer- we took our kids to WDW the year previously and are die-hard Disney fans. This year we were vacationing in Fort Myers and my son is obsessed with Legos. So we decided to do a one-day trip to Legoland Florida. The kids knew not to expect Disney but we all had a great time at Legoland! The rides are perfect for our son's age (6) and our 4-year old daughter was able to enjoy many of them, but not tall enough for all. We enjoyed the Dragon coaster the most, with a close second being the Ninjago ride.

Other highlights were the Pirate waterski show (really fun and entertaining) and the 4D movie. It was also enjoyable to get away from the crowds and walk through the peaceful garden area of the old Cypress Gardens park which Legoland was built on.

We liked the miniature land but felt that the Florida sun has really done a number to the models and they could use a little refreshing (faded colors, etc). Legoland could also maintain their grounds a little bit better. Certain areas felt a bit tired.

This is definitely a one day park in our opinion, although a stay at the Legoland Hotel would probably be quite fun for the big Lego fans! We did not do the water park as it was only 67 degrees the day we visisited. Perhaps in warmer weather a stay at the hotel combined with the water park add on would be a fun idea.

All in all, we recommend Legoland, but will likely go back to Disney World before we go back to Legoland! It was a long drive to Winter Haven from Fort Myers, but doable as a day trip. The lines were really reasonable despite it being a prime spring break week in mid-March, We didn't wait longer than 15-20 minutes, tops. Most rides were more in the 10 minute wait range. Also, don't be like us and wait until closing to visit the big Lego store near the entrance. That ended in a meltdown of indecision and tears!

Enjoy Legoland, especially if you are a big Lego fan!!!
