One Word

Posted in Where To by


Legoland was one big pink pleasant surprise, two outrageously fun roller coaster rides, three delicious Asian lunch entrees and more smiles and laughs than we could count.

Any idea is a good idea except the non-happy ones. Those we push down deep inside where you’ll never, ever, ever, EVER find them! Β  Β  -UniKitty

    After much begging, we finally took the kids to Legoland. They loved it so much! We met Emmet and Wyld Style but I didn’t see UniKitty. Lucky you! It was fun following your Southern California adventures on Instagram. πŸ™‚

      We went to Legoland California!

      We only had one day, we could have easily done two or three! We want to check out the Water Park area next time!

      The new Legoland at AZ Mills is on our summer bucket list – we are going end of next week! Will be sure to post lots of photos! Have you been yet? I want to see all the AZ landmarks in Miniland!

      We had so much fun + perfect weather (of course!) We tools tons of silly photos (we love doing that) and got to see SO many cool Lego displays. We each made a mini-fig and had a fabulous noodle lunch. The new Nijago Ride was virtual reality and the kids flipped out for it (me too actually). It was beyond amazing!

      Ours too! We’ve been twice now and think we’ll go again next summer! We didn’t get to ride the horses around the track and we all thought that would be great silly fun! Kids love panning for gold and getting the medal. What is your kids’ favorite?

    We have never been to LEGOLAND,but I have heard it’s more for the younger kids. Would my teens like it?

    August 1, 2016 at 10:38 pm
    • Reply Katrina Sherk

      The younger set does have a lot of options – more than other amusement parks I would say. However, my teen loved Legoland and enjoyed a variety of rides – including a giant roller coaster – that are only for older kids. The new Ninjago World ride – though grade school kids can go on it to and maybe even a little younger – was a virtual reality video game and the older you are, the better you can be at the game (except for me!).

      There is an extensive Star Wars World display that is awesome for older kids – especially those that enjoy that series. If your older kids like Legos, then for sure it is a great place for them!

    • Reply Katrina Sherk

      Aww, how old are they? I think probably four and five is the perfect age to begin taking them to Legoland that way they can remember and really enjoy all the different things there are to do! One thing for the younger set for sure, are these little airplanes that fly around and also there’s horses that you can ride to go up and down around like through forest.

      Agreed! We love it so much – we could have easily spent two or three days – we want to do the whole water park area next time! New to us too was the Friends World – so cute! Very cool splash pad there – wish we would have brought suits and towels.

      Ours too! We’ve been twice and are planning on going again next summer! This trip was especially fun – perfect weather, delicious lunch at Wok N Bowl Ramen(which I was not expecting! My son’s noodle soup was fabulous, my orange chicken was delish AND it was reasonably priced!) and we didn’t even have a wait to ride the new Ninjago Ride (we did get there right at opening time).

      We just went to the one in Tempe – two Lego mini figure round yellow thumbs up! SO fun! Rides, movies and of course – Legos! Every kind – huge ones we had never seen and tons of Friends Legos too! Make your own car to race (they have that in Legoland California too) – we had such a time and spent more than four hours there!!!
