Did everything in 1 hour

We booked online for entry at 10am on a Sunday and by 11am we had done everything and some things twice. For £15 per adult that's pricy for the amount of time spent there.

Expensive for what's on offer, we won't be back

We visited here recently, after seeing adverts for it in the Trafford Centre. I booked our tickets online in advance, and therefore saved some money but it was still very expensive for what was actually on offer; I think I would have been really disappointed had I paid a full priced admission charge and would likely have asked for a refund. There were two adults and two children, aged 6 and 3, in our group. The kids enjoyed the factory tour, but I noticed that some of the 'machinery' looked shabby and unkempt. The ride which involved shooting spiders and skeletons was a waste of time. We visited during term time, and were able to walk straight onto the ride, but I'd have felt REALLY peeved if we'd queued to get on this ride during busier times. The lasers didn't work, the story was all over the shop and it felt rushed and disjointed. Miniland is ok. Again pretty shabby in areas and some of the little models looked in serious need of TLC. We've visited both the Legoland in Florida and Windsor, where the minilands are outdoors, and therefore exposed to the elements, so some forgiveness can be given for things not looking in 100% tiptop condition. But the miniland in the LDC Manchester is inside. Does no one check that the lights/music etc are working? Or that the rocket carousel next to Blackpool tower has some of it's threads tangled? Even just some of the scenery in some of the areas looked past it's best. It just seemed neglected and sad. The main area of the centre features a small soft play frame which my two children found to be fun although some of the areas in the frame are dark and my 3 year old found it scary in places. The Ranger car ride only allows kids aged 4 or above to ride, so my 3 year old had to sit that one out, and to be honest my 6 year old came off looking pretty unimpressed. The two of them had more fun (and spent a while) at the build a car/test it area. Whilst it was great to see them having fun, it wasn't anything that they couldn't have done at home with the Lego they own. I'd give serious consideration to eating in the cafe there too. The kids lunches were of the pick and mix variety, and were a whopping £6.00 each. You could upgrade the lunch by £4.00 which means you get the same lunch in a small square lego lunch box. But £10 for what is essentially a sandwich, a drink, a yogurt and some crisps in a plastic box is daylight robbery. It's already pretty expensive to get in, and to charge £6 for a kids lunch is outrageous. We tried to spin the visit out as much as possible, but even then we were still only there for about 2.5 hours (including lunch!) and that was doing everything - all the rides, the softplay, Master Wu's Dojo, the create area, the bat cave, the 4D movie etc. We literally did everything on offer, even collecting all the stamps for the Secret Mission book which costs an additional £4 each. I suspect that on a busier day you would find that you would be there longer, but that would just be due to there being more people there, not having anything else to actually do. Overall, I found this to be an expensive visit, not just in terms of actual entry costs but in terms of things being overly priced for what you actually received, like the mission booklets and lunch. The shop, like any other Lego shop I've ever been to is expensive too, and I have to admit that by the time we reached the shop, I was sick of spending money that I limited my kids to building one mini figure each. We won't be back here in a hurry, simply due to the fact that there isn't much to do when you consider just how expensive it is. It just seemed like a Merlin exercise in fleecing you for as much cash as they can. Collapse

My last day in the country and we wanted to do a day out that my 5 year old grandson would love, so we let him pick our destination - he decided on Legoland. It was expensive for what they had to offer, but he had a blast and the day was about him so it was worth it. The food was kind of expensive and the selection wasn't great so we ate in the mall afterwards. All in all, it was a fabulous family day out. Collapse

Visit during a quiet period in the week. Although quite a small attraction it's nice for younger kids from 4 to 11 years. Laser shooting ride is great. Master builder activity is good to do with your child. Cafe is quite expensive. Building a lego car to race on the slopes is fun. A worthwhile visit. Collapse
