One big thing has been checked off of our Summer Fun list – and just in the nick of time! I’d saved up coupons (pay for adult, child goes free) from our FREE Lego Club magazine so we picked up Grandma JuJu and bee-lined down to Phipps for fantastic summer day.
We absolutely love Miniland – it’s really utterly remarkable how they recreated the city of Atlanta in bricks. And when the sun “sets” and city lights come on it’s a little breathtaking (yes, I realize I’m still talking about legos.)
Next they moved over to the test track. They built all sorts of wheeled lego creations to try on the race tracks.
We waited in line for eons to ride Merlin’s but, of course, the littles thought it was well worth it.
And we wrapped up our visit with a stint in the 4D theater.
With all that lego building we worked up some serious appetites. I was thrilled to see the Johnny Rocket’s back open and let me assure you that cheeseburgers and chocolate milkshakes hit the spot.
I’ve heard mixed reviews from mom’s about Legoland Atlanta. We’ve been twice and the kids love it. Sure, it could stand to be less crowded, better organized and a little cleaner, but when you’re getting in two-for-one and don’t go in with a Disney expectation it’s just fine. Plan to spend three or so hours.
We hope to make it to Legoland Florida in the near future. If you have any tips or tricks, be sure to let me know!
