Kids go free at Legoland
For parents with young children Legoland makes a really good introduction to the world of theme parks. Legoland parks are specifically aimed at children under the age of eleven. With the assurance that all the rides are suitable for younger children parents can avoid the normal problem experienced at theme parks where you pay to go into the park and then discover that your children aren’t actually old enough to ride on many of the attractions.
Legoland may be about fun and excitement for your children but it is also about education and learning. Activities at Legoland often focus on helping children to learn something or to understand the results of scientific principles. One example of this is the hydraulophone this is an underwater pipe organ that helps children learn about states-of-matter and the principles of water flow. Other related exhibits help to teach children about water flow and water pressure.
