Posted from comments as asked. I made a similar mistake at tourist attractions in the past when I forgot mine was in my bag, I had it confiscated from me and it was apparently disposed of. I asked if I could collect it on my way out as it was a family gift but a policy is a policy and there was nothing the staff could do. Edit: I was given the option of ...

It looks like you won't be allowed in to the park with a knife, and if you try to do so then it may be confiscated by park security and / or you'll be ejected from the park. The list of prohibited items includes "sharp/pointed knives" and "pocket knives" (thanks to Toivo Säwén for pointing out the second one) with the only exceptions ...

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 ...

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 with ...

It's not a theme park but I recently discovered something that relates with my question. There is a new trend called "escape rooms". These are a physical adventure game where you have to solve a set of puzzles and escape from a room / scenario. A lot like MacGyver did. Basically you are put in a room, with a theme, from where you have to escape. Themes can ...

If you're willing to travel a bit farther, iPlay America in Freehold, NJ, has an iRide Plus Pass Package which offers unlimited go-karting for a day for $29.95. NJ Transit buses will get you there in an hour and a half from Port Authority terminal. Finally, ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

I don't believe that there are any theme parks that have what you are describing, but in the uk there is a company offering spy / espionage interactive experiences http://www.spy-games-experiences.com This orbitz blog also details some international locations with an espionage flavour. http://www.orbitz.com/blog/2013/09/vacation-undercover/

Disneyland Resort in Anaheim contains two theme parks (they're located next to each other on the same property): Disneyland Park and California Adventure, plus a couple of hotels and an unticketed shopping area called Downtown Disney. Disneyland Park is the classic, iconic Disneyland, while California Adventure is a newer California-themed area. When you ...

There is an amusement park at the Holešovice Fairground. It is most famous for St. Matthew's Fair, which takes place in early spring, but a smaller number of attractions (including a rollercoaster and a Ferris wheel) are open most of the year (except winter).

Because of the nature of this destination, there are loads of public transportation options for Williamsburg and the surrounding area, and many hotels run shuttle services to attractions, including Busch Gardens and Water Country USA. Williamsburg Vacations has a good overview (no affiliation) and, while it mentions one hotel with shuttle, check before ...

I think the closest you would get to a North Korean themed park and North Korea itself would be Imjingak Pyeonghoa-Nuri Park and other nearby attractions. There's nothing like Splendid China out there.

There are benches at several places in the park, some in quiet areas a bit away from the shows and attractions, e.g. near a small lake under some trees. These could be nice for a small nap. There might also be some grass available (not sure if you were authorized to step on the grass though). If you're looking for something more comfy, there are several B&...

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 ...

A couple years ago my family went to Universal Studio. My daughter had two larg-ish knives in her bag and she realized that as we were walking from parking to the gates. She ended up hiding them under a bush along the path rather than going all the way back to the car. She picked them up on the way out that evening.

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).

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 ...

Taxi would be more than EUR 150-200 (one way) I think. This website suggests it could be up to EUR 260. Public transportations are good in the Netherlands but the park is out of town and 2 hours is long. Maybe taking a cab to the station on both ends (Amsterdam and 's-Hertogenbosch) and a train in-between could cut the time and be a good compromise. Renting ...

As far as I can tell, the answer is no. I rocked up to the ticket gate wearing a yukata, obi and geta, asked in Japanese if there was a wafuku (Japanese clothing) discount, while accompanied by a native speaker of Japanese, and I was told there wasn't. Also, there was no mention of such a discount on the English-language edition of the mobile friendly ...

I'm myself of average height (1,80m) but really overweight so this might not be the exact same situation but I surely understand the feeling. It is true that Plopsa is aimed at younger kids in the sense that many of the attractions, including (small) rollercoasters, can accommodate kids from the size of 1m whereas other amusement parks in Belgium have only ...

Are theme parks really not a thing in central Europe? I think that entertainment is seing differently perhaps where you come from compared to Europe in general. As in the USA I have seen a lot of adults in amusement parks, it is not so much the case in europe in general. People would prefer to travel to cultural places or to go to public baths in eastern ...

The answer to this is: Fairly. I didn't use a colectivo in the end myself - for our group and distance, a Taxi only cost 30 MXN more. The walk from the highway is real, but probably only 500m - 800m or so. There is a sidewalk on the highway overpass (if you need to get to/from that side of the road). Once over the highway there is a footpath seperated from ...
