Isn't this the same centre that banned single male adults from the store?
looks to be their policy at all locations, not just Canada

Interesting.

Wow that sounds like some serious misinformation, or incomplete information from you two.

You posted the article yourself, and in it it clearly says that the guy that was turned away was there with his 30 year old adult daughter. They were both denied entry without a child. The policy is for all single adults, not just "single males."

Geezus I wish you guys would be a little more thorough in your "research." No offense, but your comments are like click-bait.

After reading the article you posted, I did one Google search of the guy's name + Lego, and lo and behold, Legoland invited him back with an expenses-paid trip paying for his gas both ways, food, free admission for him and his daughter, on his choice of either the adults-only night, or a private tour of the place before opening hours.

The information is there on the website, but Legoland still did right by him.

The adults only night was already in place when they had booked their tickets.

If you've got kids, heck, you don't even have to have kids, to appreciate why they would have a no adults without children policy. And it sounds like they've understood that they have tons of single adult fans, having the adults only night from early on too.

Nope, I just want to be able to go in and buy lego without being labelled
You can probably go into the store part to buy lego, just can't go into the amusement park area, which makes total sense.

I have two kids (ages 5 and 8) and yet their policy makes little sense to me. Some adults still love Disney stuff , should they not be allowed at amusement park if not accompanied by kids?

Or another case. Parent has had their child pass away. They miss hearing the laughter and joy of kids at play. Should we ban the now childless adult from public playgrounds?

Obviously Lego is a private company and can do what they like. The recent, hypervigilant rise of helicopter parenting really makes me feel like many kids are missing out on a world of adventures.

Every study shows that suspect most likely to take or harm your kid is somebody that they already know (priest, teacher, family friend) , not a total stranger.

All it takes is for one incident to completely tarnish the store's reputation, scare the public, and garnish themselves a lawsuit. It's the same reason why single, unaccompanied adults aren't allowed on school grounds either, unless they're one of the parents, whom one of the teachers would most likely recognize. That would be much harder to discern at a place like Legoland where there is turnover in staff on a regular basis, and you are inviting in the general public. Err on the side of caution, I say.

Besides, as has already been mentioned, there is a dedicated adults only night. If you are an adult and you love Lego that much, then you'd be able to make the time for that night.

As for the example that you listed...hey...that's a really tough situation for sure. But, to be honest, if there's a single adult hanging out on a regular basis at a playground with kids in it...that gets really sketchy too. I hate to say that, but, it's the truth, because no one else there would really know what that parent went through.

There are other avenues they could get around that though, such as volunteering to work with kids and stuff like that :)

Do we have to use the ticket on the same day or is this considered an "anytime use" ticket? we have unopened gifts that our kids would not like/use so we might as well bring them here
