I have to be honest with you guys. As an 80s kid in China, I didn’t grow up with these fancy tiny bricks (LEGO) like many. In fact, I had very few toys to play with. Instead of playing with Barbie dolls, I was digging mud at my grandma’s back yard. So it might seem strange 3 over 30 years old adults visiting Legoland alone, but I have a very good reason for that. I had never been to one until now.
My first impression of the park: it’s great for small children and parents. There’re a few rides, but nothing really dangerous or challenging.
It’s a brand new highlight of the park since 1st April 2017. The 4D interactive ride is almost like a massive computer game. It has the tastes and feels from Fruit Ninja, which used to be one of my favourite games. At the end of the ride, you could see who win most of the points. Pictures are also taken during the ride and available for sell.
Flying NIJIAGO is another ride which gives you the control of both wings beside your seat. By switching the wings to the most opposite direction, you will be able to turn your seat to an 180 degree. So basically you’re upside down while meters above the ground. If you have long hair over your shoulders, it’s obligated to tide your hair up for safety reasons.
The world builds with lego bricks. You can see some of the tallest buildings in the world, many major European cities and travel destinations, even star wars, but all in Lego form. Each of the exhibitions can be triggered to move to some extent by pressing the button nearby. It’s fun, but also educational. Children can learn a lot from it. I also had lots of fun just by looking at the moving little Lego people.
The Allianz Arena in Miniland is the largest Lego structure in the world with 1 meter high and 5 x 4.5 meters wide.
There are many dining options in the park. The Schnitzel from Schnitzel Depot has the best value for money. They also offer Asian, Italian and Greek food in the park. Both unfortunately and fortunately, we had our lunch on our way there, so I could only try to have as much snack as possible in Legoland. You could see them in my video above.
One thing worth to mention, the shop selling sword waffles is quite hard to find. I kept seeing people holding these giant waffles, but couldn’t locate where the shop was. It took us a couple hours after watching the 4D movie and taking the ride at Ninjago world, we finally found it. It’s located on the back side of the Ninjago world entrance. Who would look back after entering the gate?
Deutschland Legoland Günzburg is reachable both by cars or trains. It’s simply quicker & easier with a car.
The parking cost 5 Euro, but you can park at the nearby Bauhaus which is free.
Purchase your ticket online beforehand from Merlinaktionen.de. They offer 2 for 1 deal.
The opening time shows on the Legoland website is often incorrect. It closed actually at 7 pm instead of 6 pm. The opening time is changing base on the season.
