The trains look great, very surprised by the height restriction though. Legoland are all about family experiences and tailoring to a younger audience so this seems odd.

Trains look great, but the height requirement is a little disappointing. I was hoping to take my daughter on this coaster next year but might have to wait another year now, oh well, I guess that just gives her something to look forward to the next trip!

The hotel is a pretty cool addition that I'm excited about. I haven't been to Legoland yet but I've been looking forward to taking my daughter (when she's old/tall enough) ever since it opened. As a semi local Floridian Legoland isn't far away but it isn't exactly an easy day trip from here with small children either. The hotel should make this a nice little "long weekend" destination for us at some point in the future!

How would you like to be the parent of the kid who could ride it before but can't now?

When my kids were little they loved Legos and would have loved to stay at a Lego hotel.

Who do you blame? Legoland or GCI

Both. Equally. Those trains should have never been designed with such a high height restriction and Legoland should have worked with them to come up with an alternative solution.

Not saying it needs to be exactly 36", but something like 38" with an adult or 42" to ride alone would have to be in the realm of possibility.

Who would have ever thought a PTC train would be the better solution???

The park is really advancing. They are making the park look alive unlike when it was Cyprus Gardens when it was really dull in most parts

Well GCI Clearly made Coastersaurus more extreme. Hence why these have seatbelts when the other trains didn't. I wonder if the train is a converted Gwazi train?

^Maybe I'm missing the sarcasm but GCI didn't change the ride besides the trains. And from everything I heard these are brand new trains not rebuilds of any old products.
