Four of Legoland's nine areas have live shows. They are
discussed on this page by the areas they are located in.
Life on Mars, the Show
My husband and I would like to think that we sacrificed 30 minutes of
our lives so you won't have to. Legoland tries to present guests with
a show with a message: Just because we don't speak the same language
doesn't mean we can't help each other out and all get along.
We found ourselves looking longingly at the exit signs as the show
dragged on and on. The characters and lighting effects (including
strobe lights) scared our toddler. The brochure describes this show as
"exciting" and featuring "high energy" music. I
would not use either of these adjectives to describe it.
At one point in the show, guests are encouraged to throw plastic
balls, similar to beach balls, through the audience down to the stage.
I was pelted in the back of my head by when another guest lobbed the
ball my direction: Ouch! Please learn from our mistake and make better
use of your time elsewhere so that our 30 minutes were not lost in
Actors in this show interact with guests as Dunkirk Dragon is made
King for a Day. Performers cruise Castle Hill before the show starts
to round up their audience.
The actors try hard, but some of the dialogue leaves a bit to be
desired. It's something to stop and see if you're in the area when it
The Big Test
"Volunteer firefighters" perform a show filled with
slapstick humor and a few minor stunts, while slipping in a message
about fire safety.
The crowds seem to love this show and the actors seem to appreciate
the crowds. Warning: you may get wet!
Team Rootberry A juggling team performs their tricks on the
stage outside the Lego Factory tour.
Two live actors interact with a magician on a movie screen.
The brochure promises this show will "share secret tricks of
the trade." I didn't think that it showed very many secrets; the
script challenges the audience to try to figure out the secrets for
Ventriloquist Kevin Johnson and his friends Clyde and Matilda interact
with audiences, sing some songs, and crack quite a few jokes.
While this show did not have much of a plot, Kevin is a talented
ventriloquist and I found myself laughing repeatedly through his
