  1. As a kid, I think I’d have loved Legoland.

    I have fond memories of Carowinds just outside of Charlotte, North Carolina. We’d go maybe once a year. I haven’t been in more than 20, but I don’t think I’d enjoy the crowds nowadays.

  2. I am from this area and it really is great! I spent many happy days at Thorpe Park and Chessington World of Adventures! I actually never visited Legoland but my friends raved about it and still do.

  3. I wanted to go to Legoland while I was in the UK.
    However, I was there on a contract for a few months only, and while I was there, it was closed :'(
    I was very disappointed!
