If it helps, two couples I know, both in their early 30s went a couple of years ago (to the one in the UK). One especially is lego mad, and everyone loved it. Evidently the place is arranged at different levels. So while kids might just enjoy that it's Lego, adults can engage in the hunts, the themes and more. A review of some of the rides of the UK one ...

As you may have already found out on the Disney site, there are various "park hopper" tickets that let you go to more than one park on the same day. We spent an entire week at Disney World in 2009 and didn't see everything. That was staying at a Disney hotel close to Epcot, with early admission and late exit to/from the parks (only available to ...

The "craziest" rides in Legoland Denmark are: Polar X-plorer. Top speed of 65 km/h, 16m drop; X-treme Racers. Top speed of 60km/h, also 16m drop; Ice Pilots School, quite unique experience of being on a shaker ;-) Rest of the rides are quite soft. I've enjoyed Legoland as relaxed family holiday. Indeed I feel that the park is best suited for families ...

Here's a site with reviews of many amusement parks in Japan, that can probably give you more information than is possible here. The biggest one is probably Tokyo Disneyland. However, most amusements parks in Japan seem to be relatively small (at least the two I visited were) and cram lots of attractions into very little space - sometimes literally ...

I went to the German LEGOLAND near Augsburg last September with my 4 children (21, 18, 13, 6). It was a day out together. We have all played with lego in the past but none of us are 'lego nerds'. The park was nice, the models well done and there are some nice rides. However, all in all, I would say that the age limit is around 12-13. My older ones didn't ...

Legoland Windsor is located approximately 20 miles west of Central London. Whether or not you consider that to be a tourist attraction of London is entirely up to you. However it proves to be very popular and is easy to get to for the thousands of "London" tourists , as is the town of Windsor & the Royal residence of Windsor Castle (as far as tourist ...

According to the German Wikipedia, the park is closed from mid-September to April and the Christmas market was discontinued in 2009. The calendar on the park's website supports this - it shows the park as open every day in August, only Thrusday to Sunday in September, and only concert events (which are held on the premises while the rest of the park is ...

It is very common to do day trips from London to Windsor Castle The difference between the castle and Legoland on public transport is a 15 min bus (see below for reference and details). Is it a London Attraction? Well that depends on how you measure London. London Technically London is the city of London (the square mile) Greater London Area The Greater ...

Fuji-Q Highland is also rather excellent, wooden rollercoasters and more. Update - I went again last month. It's absolutely fantastic and strongly recommended, though only go on a good day as they're very safety-conscious and everything pretty much shuts down on the first sign of rain. Eejainaika is a particular highlight (an absolutely terrifying 4D ...

Spa Resort Hawaiians is a Hawaiian themed resort and theme park. It was originally a coal mine, but the mine became economically unviable, so the area's hot springs were used to create a resort. Apparently it has the largest single outdoor bath in Japan. http://www.hawaiians.co.jp/show/ should have information on Hawaiian (and other Polynesian) dances they ...

I'm going to answer my own question (partially) here, because I went to Six Flags Magic Mountain on Thanksgiving Day this year. It was moderately busy, almost entirely with young adults. There were very few children there. The lines on the more extreme/newer rides were long - 45 minutes or so. The lines on the more moderate rides (e.g. Revolution, an older ...

Gröna Lund is closed during Christmas. As far as I know they have never been opened during this time of year. I think your Christmas market reference may refer to one of: Skansen - the zoo and outdoors museum close to Gröna Lund has a Christmas market on weekends in December. It is at Bollnästorget from 10 to 16. More info in swedish. Liseberg - the ...

The "Intimidator" is the tallest, fastest, and longest coaster in the southeast. It's located in the Carowinds Plaza near Charlotte. They seem to have a massive number of "Thrill rides". It is a bit far away (3+ hours drive) but might be worth for a day trip. Other parks closer to Myrtle beach are the Hard Rock Park, which looks a lot tamer, the Family ...

Six Flags Great Adventure is a very large amusement park and perhaps the most obvious choice. Google says it is 1:06 away from Union City by car. There are smaller parks closer to Union City which may be better for younger kids, e.g. Bowcraft. Your choice depends a bit on your group...

There is a Japanese Friendship Garden in San Jose, California (SJC), which should be easily accessible from Japan. The park is relatively close to the downtown area (where the SJC airport is located), and generally has free admission for most gardens (although some other events around it sometime require a separate admission).

There has been a precedent set for Legoland denying entry to a senior who tried to visit without being accompanied by a young child. (This was at a Legoland Discovery Centre in Ontario, not a Legoland amusement park.)

Given your restrictions on transportation namely public transportation your choices are limited to: Victoria Gardens Luna Park Adventurers Park All located in New York City.

I ended up visiting Legoland Windsor with my kids. I can only say that it was worth every penny, even with the freezing temperature we were having. Legoland is in my book something I would consider suggesting to friend looking for kids attraction around London. Legoland is specially well suited for the smaller kids 4-6 of age. We visited two days and still ...
