We've gone three times and once with a class trip. I started cataloging the different buildings, I'm up to about 75 that I know.

Thanks for the awesome comments! (I wish I still had my huge bin of Legos!) :)
SanneL from Sweden on October 27, 2011:
Wow, It's marvelous what can be made from Legos!
To bad that I'm so far away from Florida.
However with your informative and fun hub, together with all the great photos, I got myself a virtual tour.
Thank you so much and I pressed the little green button.

I love your "if you like this Hub, press the Green Button" Well, I did! I live in S. Florida, and I want to take my Grandchildren to see LegoLand. My Grandson has always loved his Legos; still does, and he is 17 yrs. old. It's amazing what can be made from Legos!

Oh thanks faceless I am a great fan of Lego from childhood and now in my forties I still adore this charming game I just have a love affair with lego bricks I was on Holiday in March and I teamed up with my Nephew and we both made a sports car out of Lego Bricks I have posted the pics on my Facebook account The lego was gifted from my German lady friend and when she saw the pics on FB she remarked hahahahaaahahahahah boys happy with Lego
I think Lego should be introduced in Schools around the world It's a creative game and encourages kids to do something positive with their hands When kids will get stuck they can take help from their peers fostering a warm friendship- Computer games cannot
