This is really a park for kids and their parents. There are no thrills (except maybe 'Test Track', the park's major roller coaster) and no surprises: everything is sweet and child-compliant. Unfortunately, there are no mentionable innovations either: Legoland has an Egyptian-themed ride in Indiana Jones style, a Jungle Cruise with LEGO elephants and a castle roller coaster featuring LEGO animatronics that look even less life-like than your lego figures back home.
Yet, it is a well landscaped oasis of theme park peace and its location in Carlsbad is far better for a theme park than Anaheim and San Diego. But don’t go unless you have kids, it isn't meant or built for you!
