Family camping has certainly come a long way since the days of flimsy tents and canned foods – at least in the UAE. So if you and the family are looking to take advantage of the cooler weather and hit the road for an outdoor getaway, here are our picks of some of the best… Read More
Legoland and Legoland Waterpark with toddlers may be a nightmare or a dream for some parents, so our in-House Kidzapp Reviewer Rachel recently checked it out with her twin Toddlers. Many families may worry about the price and if their children would enjoy it, but you will be happy to know that entrance for ages 3 and under is completely FREE!
Legoland currently has 3 sections more geared for toddlers 2 and under because either there isn’t a height requirement to play, or the height requirement is either 80 or 90cm to ride the rides.
Otherwise, the rest of the park requires at least 95cm or higher to ride, making it quite perfect if you have kids of different ages. For Rachel who has 2.5-year-old twins and 90cm, there were only some rides they could go on but also so much more!
Rachel noted that the sections are Duplo Valley, Submarine Adventure & Lost Kingdom Adventure. If you have under 2 years old and not really walking yet, in Duplo Valley there is large soft LEGO to play with, and plenty of space to roam around, much like a large playground but for toddlers. Rachels’ twins loved this area in particular!
There is also Miniland Dome where toddlers can just look at the mini city, with eyes filled with amazement. The water park section is much more geared towards children who are already confident swimmers, and for toddlers the best thing is the wave pool, which is very shallow and toddlers can sit and play with the fountains (attended at all times of course). It was difficult to take Rachels toddlers away from this area!
Rachel does note that there are a few things to remember and be aware of before you show up for your family- fun day out at Legoland Dubai.
- You pay minimum AED 20 for parking there (more for VIP).
- You can’t bring your own food (except snacks for your kids is fine).
- If going to the water park, bring your own towels otherwise you will pay 40aed per towel to RENT one.
- You can also rent strollers (even double strollers for those with twins).
- Bring your own water. Water bottles are AED 6 each.
- They provide life jackets for all ages.
- While a lot of the park is covered, you should wear really light clothing, sunscreen, and hat but for the water park the water can be quite cold so warm up in the sun once you get out.
Rachel comments: “Is the price worth it if you are only bringing your under 3-year-old?” It depends. You know your child better than anyone and if you think he or she will behave and enjoy it all, then yes, it’s a Fun experience especially if they like LEGO.
If you generally have a hard time with your toddler (like Rachel 😆), it may not be worth it and you are better off just going to a water park near your house. But in general Rachel thinks everyone should experience Legoland atleast once – with or without kids
As far as prices go, just visit their website as they have different packages and discounts depending on when and how you purchase them. In typical Dubai style there is something for everyone!
