Not a lot of words, more of a pictorial....went to Legoland Billund, Denmark on Saturday (school trip) and all I can say is.....TONS o' FUN!!!!

Capital made of legos!

Just the attention to detail in everything they do in Legoland, you can see the street sign in the background, amazing!

As you can see EVERYTHING is made of legos. iIt is wild, besides these made structures, Legoland has put lego creatures EVERYWHERE! For example in Pirate land, my friends and I were standing in line and there up on a perch inside the ride's building, a lego parrot!
A view of the park from their observation tower.

Legoland is definitely for small children but when you go with a school group, the trip can be mad amusing! We rode almost all the rides (one roller coaster) and played the games (like the one where you pretend to be firemen and try to put out a fake fire, much harder than you would think!). Plus the fun of this trip was just getting to Legoland. It was interesting to go to a different part of Denmark...Legoland is in Billund, which is on Jutland, the bigger portion of Denmark. Copenhagen is in Zealand, which is the smaller part of Denmark. To get from Zealand to Jutland you have to cross the world's second largest suspension bridge and Jutland is definitely more country than its city cousin Zealand.

I highly recommend if you make an extended visit to Denmark to do this amusement park, especially if you have little children! an aside to my sister, they had Spongebob Squarepants key chains and I went a little crazy, you will see soon!

I would think that school trips to Legoland were for people in grade 5. Shouldn't your school take you to the stock exchange or something?

Mommanator - actually I wanted to get down and start playing, and touching everything (which you are not allowed to do) LOL.

Joe - you gotta think outside of the box if you want to be a business leader in today's market, a visit to the stock market, exactly how would that be educational? At Legoland you get to see a business model come to life, how they keep to their central themes, what are there target markets and how do they seize opportunities from them, what are their limitations and what are their strengths? My friend, every trip can be a business opportunity, it doesn't have to be labeled "business" to be educational.

Molly - you will go and InshAllah with your seven (yes I said seven) kids and honey and the dog!

Brenda - you know you are right, though the park is geared for children there is so much for adults to see, just the things they have made out of Legos is amazing!
