Mega-Lego-Mania!

We thought we might as well spend a couple of days in Billund as the city is THE home of Lego.

My brother being completely obsessed with lego (as most children…-and adults- are) this visit had been a good bribe for several days and his excitement was now almost unbearable. If you were thinking of visiting here yourself then you should know Lego House and Legoland are two completely different things and unless you bought it together they don’t come under the same ticket.

We stayed in a campsite just outside Billund which was run by a tight owner who was constantly trying to cram in as many motorhomes as possible- even when he had more land available. The bike ride to LegoHouse was peaceful with the locals hidden and the sun shining on the burning tarmac. LegoHouse shone a bright white with the famous lego colours spiralling on the outside steps up to the endless blue sky.

Once you are in the building everything becomes based around technology. If you’ve booked online, you simply put in your details and each receive a band with your name imprinted on it and the band will serve you for the rest of the day; whether that’s to take pictures of your creation and then transfer it or to simply view where you are within the building (photos can then be accessed on the lego app to keep).

If you’re only giving yourself a couple of hours here I recommend you to seriously reconsider! We spent hours here and could spend many more as my brothers enthusiasm never wavered. Lego waterfalls splashed out into the rooms full of life size lego dinosaurs and mini lands- all allowing you to build and let your imagination run free.

The next day we were off to Lego Land.

Although they sound  similar, they are completely different. Lego Land is a theme park home to mini lego lands, lego safaris, lego aquariums ect..; yet you aren’t given access to build or to interact and unfortunately this was quite aggravating for most children.

Typical tourists sauntered around with t-shirts dangling over their heads whilst dragging excited squealing children with sticky fingers behind them.

The day was long and at times claustrophobic and although the House was much better, the theme park was outside in the bright rays of the sun. The day consisted of Jedi sliding under lasers amongst ninjas, portions of candyfloss, typical rides and laughs.
