After our trip to LEGOLAND Florida, I had a lot of people ask me if it was something that tweens and teens would enjoy. The park itself is geared toward those 12 and under, but tweens and young teens can have a good time, especially if they go with a younger sibling or friend. My 13 year-old was almost as excited as my 8 year-old to visit LEGOLAND, and although they enjoyed many of the same things, they also experienced the park a bit differently. Given more time to plan his own schedule, my teen would have spent more time in mini-land, Instagramming photos of mini cities. Here’s his thoughts on what to do at LEGOLAND Florida for tweens and teens.
What did you like best about LEGOLAND Florida and why?
I liked a lot of things about LEGOLAND Florida. I thought all of the buildings in mini-land were cool because I understand how hard it is to build all of them. The rides at LEGOLAND Florida were fun but definitely for younger kids and nowhere near as cool as some of the rides at Disney or Universal. The Mindstorm Robotics Challenge is very cool and fun but can get a little tricky. If you like shows go to the Pirates Cove show, cool water ski tricks. Sit in back if you don’t want to get soaking wet.
What did you like least about LEGOLAND Florida and why?
Even though I had a great time at LEGOLAND Florida, it was definaitly for younger people. Don’t expect to be thrilled with the rides. Come thinking that you will enjoy it and that some things will be for younger kids.
Tips for visiting LEGOLAND Florida
If I were to give one tip, I would say that you should build your day around the shows and expect to spend a lot of time in mini-land because it has a lot of details that make it much more fun.
