SeaLife Aquarium at Legoland Carlsbad
Posted By Jessica Fisher On July 28, 2009 @ 1:08 am In Product Reviews | 1 Comment
Mothers of sons from sea to shining sea know the pain caused by a small, plastic brick when stepped on in the middle of the night. They know that tell-tale crashing sound that emanates from the playroom when a box of said bricks is dumped onto the floor. In their minds eye, they can picture the havoc created by little boys and a handful of Legos.
Oh yes, yes, you do.
And with the advent of free Lego catalogs, every mother of a young son knows that somewhere in California there is a land where the Legos run free, where they frolic to and fro, waiting for children to come build with them. That distant world is called Legoland.
And who knew, but God, when I had four boys and finally let a Lego set brick in my house that we would someday live within driving distance of this Builder Boy Mecca. Back in May I shared our fun experience at Legoland and all my meditations thereof.
Recently our family had the opportunity to visit the SeaLife Aquarium , one of the attractions at the Legoland Resort  in Carlsbad, CA. Merlin Entertainment very graciously granted the FishFam complimentary admission so that we could tour the facility, visit the fish, and build a few bricks. We were also treated to lunch at the Ocean Journey Cafe. We ate al fresco in the cool ocean breeze and definitely made some sweet memories.
What a fun jaunt for our family!
SeaLife California  is actually part of a larger family of 29 other SeaLife Aquariums worldwide. It has a history of being an interactive exposure to sea creatures. The facility features a quiz trail which really appealed to the readers in our group as well as play zones, including a slide and brick stations where little ones can do what they looooove to do – play with Legos.
Our kids really enjoyed seeing the fish up close and personal. It was so fun to hear FishBoy5 and FishChick2 laugh and laugh at the sting rays swimming by just inches in front of their noses.
Some observations from our time at the Aquarium:
So, you ready to go? Because I have four passes to SeaLife Aquarium to give away this week. Talk about your Christmas in July! These expire on New Year’s Eve, so you’ll be able to use them if your San Diego travel takes place after summer’s end. And if you won’t be able to make it to my neck of the woods before 2010, you can always send them as a gift to someone who will. Either way – what fun! THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.
