    Is it walking distance? Or do you need to catch public transformation to get there.
    My sister-in-law was hoping to come down from Canada with my nephews in for Easter
    and they wanted to go to legoland, so long as we all arent drowning from El Nino.

    Also which stop would they get off at?

    Catch Public Transpo. It's a long walk just getting up to the front gate.

    It shouldn't be far from the Poinsettia station, not sure about walking distance though, wouldn't be an expensive Uber ride.

    Yeah, thats what I figured. San Diego has their shit together with public transportation better than up here.
    Shouldnt be too hard for them. They also could always drive down. But the kids were excited about
    going on their first train ride.

    “Impossible to get to via public transport”
    [​IMG]Reviewed July 24, 2012
    Legoland is definitely geared towards kids under 8 yrs old. The rides are incredibly child friendly. In my opinion, the best part of the park is the Pirate area and the Pirate Battle ride is awesome for getting soaked. It's very rigged so that the bystanders soak you more than you can soak them.

    Legoland is impossible to get to via public transport, there's no direct bus to the park so driving is your only option. The entry fee is expensive for about 3 hours of entertainment, if you choose not to line up in the rides with 1hour+ wait times. You have to pay for sideshow games and additional activities in the park like the mini golf area and the tree climbing. Alot of the line up areas are not covered so sunny days are not legoland friendly.

    I've never been, but I understand LegoLand is fucking EXPEN$IVE. And Carlsbad is a pit IMHO, business parks and remnants of the agricultural area it once was prior to being transformed as fast as possible into strip malls and business parks.

    Ha! They arent brats. They are the most polite and well behaved kids.
    My sister in law even gets compliments from people who are on the flight
    with them saying how good they are.

    And yes, it was a helluva lot more stressful just watching them play and enjoy themselves than I would have thought.

    I dont know how parents do it. Especially her ever since my brother died 3 years ago.

    Im sure these are complaints coming from Californians. But my nephews wont mind.

    They live in the middle of fucking nowhere 3 hours north of Edmonton and they have absolutely nothing like
    Legoland anywhere. Hell even their local costco is a 45 minute drive and adventure.
