The first one is another theme park I’m sure you’re at least aware of, the other two are natural attractions we’d never heard of but were pleasantly surprised by.

So our kids were naturally excited to visit a Lego based theme park and get up close with some of their favorite life size Lego friends, and ride more rides of course!
