I knew that taking The Boy with me to the grand opening of LEGOLAND Florida last month would be worth my while, in terms of getting extra chores done around the house and all. But another condition he needed to agree to was to write his own post about his experience.
So, the following is the unedited, heartfelt review of the world’s largest LEGOLAND, from an 11-year old boy. He even took some of these photos, and decided where to place them within this post.
I especially like his use of the word “delectable” in the “Tips” section!
What I liked the best and why
I admit that my favorite ride was the Ford driving school (despite the long lines) because it gave me a sense of freedom as a kid and all.
My favorite attraction was Miniland just because (being a model builder and all) I knew how hard it was building milder models but that was just ridiculously hard and knowing it was done gave me a sense of awe.
What I liked the least and why
If I had to choose one it would be the Island in the Sky, but that’s only because of my fear of heights. The park was so amazing that is the only thing that comes to mind.
TIPS FOR VISITING LEGOLAND
I think you should know a few tips and advice for your trip to LEGOLAND Florida so here they are.
In some of the shows you should plan to get wet, like any in the 4D theater. The first few rows in the water-ski show and the Big Test show are the splash zones.
Most of the staff will have minifigs on their badges, if you see a member of the staff with a minifig you want and you have a minifig you can trade so you might want to bring minifigures you won’t have trouble parting with.
There are buttons all over Miniland that you can press that do something (obviously).
Save room for Granny’s Apple Fries, they are simply delectable. I had 2 servings while I was there.
The Aqua Zone Wave Racers might have been my 2nd favorite ride. They provide wind and an occasional splash if you can survive the line. HINT: if you steer inward, then let go, you will get a great breeze!
The last thing I can think of is that the thrill is lost the older you get, so the younger you come, the better.
