I took my kids, ages 6 and 8 to the Legoland discovery center and they had the most fantastic time! We didn't have to wait in line long and all of the employees seemed attentive and happy to be there. Kelley was their favorite person and taught us how to make pizzas and was even able to show us how to build some nice cars to race on the ramps! Thanks for making our day fantastic!
