LegoLand Pirate Beach
Mission complete! We must say that we attended Legoland Discovery Center recently just to see Pirate Beach.
We went on a Sunday afternoon and the weather was perfect. Thankfully, there was not a line, but you can of course purchase advance tickets online and there is a separate line for advance tickets. For us, we were able to enter without a wait and start the activities.
Here’s some key points on the major attractions at LegoLand:
- My three year old had a chance to enjoy the indoor activities that included the indoor playground that is great for kids three and up.
- They have a smaller playground for the babies and toddlers under 3 that has a slide and a Lego block play area and in both sections that are available seats for the parents to wait.
- There is also the Mini-Land section that provides a peek into the city of Dallas and major attractions that are interactive for the kids and makes them feel like they are overseeing the city.
- The new Lego Friends City attraction was one of her favorites as it was a model of Lego Friends homes that is any girls dream where she could play and expand onto the current models built, but boys can play too of course.
- The Lego 4D cinema of course is great for all ages too as it allows for a time to relax and sit and enjoy a good movie clip with the family.
Wen you are done with all of those exciting activities, the kids can continue to enjoy the activities from building their own race cars to race or just playing with even more Legos.
Overall, There was so much to see and do that all kids can enjoy! And there are rides from the Kingdom Quest and Merlin Apprentice that the kids will love. There is a height limit, but little ones can ride with an adult, which makes for a fun times for both parents and kids, so definitely hop on and both rides are handicap accessible.
Unfortunately, the only attraction she could not try was the Lego City Ranger Pursuit that allows only kids 4-13 the ability to drive motorized cars in the attraction. So for me, I provided a distraction by moving on to the Pirates Beach.
Pirate Beach turned out to be her favorite part to cool down in the summer heat. It allowed for a summer blast to include splashing around, building soft rubber Legos with friends, and a chance to get soaked down the slides of courses. As a parent, the best part for me is that it offered shaded areas to rest, a chance to eat a snack or two and a safe place to watch the kiddos enjoy the activities while they run around and meet other kids their age.
MOMS TIP: There are restrooms and changing areas outside that makes it easy to change and get cleaned up.
Definitely take advantage of LegoLand Pirate Beach this summer by packing a towel and a change of clothes for the kids. And if you don’t have a swimsuit, but you do have a change of clothes that is fine too as there were many parents still letting their kids splash in the water, you just have to be dry before entering back indoors.
MOMS TIP: If you and the kids are hungry after a long day, Legoland offers a coffee and food shop where you can get delicious treats from ice cream to cookies, to sandwiches, drinks, and even Starbucks coffee which is a perk for me.
In the end, it was a great time to have fun this summer outdoors with tons of water, hands on activities and even meet new friends to make lasting memories! And before it’s over, don’t forget to visit the Lego Store where you can find a variety of Lego products for the kids to take home and enjoy. It was the best! I highly recommend a trip to LegoLand Pirate Beach this summer!
