The new Legoland that opened in Somerville, outside of Boston, requires all anzrfseyyt
visitors to come fully equipped with a child, reports Doug Saffir at boston.com. He quotes the tickets page which reads:
Please be reminded LEGOLAND Discovery Center Boston is a childrenâ€™s attraction. Adults must be accompanied by a childÂ in order to enter the attraction. Please book into one of our exclusive Adult Nights, starting this Summer, if you wish to experience the attraction.

You may recall the story last year of a 63-year-old man who made the 3-hour trip to Torontoâ€™s Legoland Discovery Centre only to be turned away because he came there without a child. (Which, readers pointed out, was only MORE REASON for him to go out and kidnap a kid.)
Maybe in the next Lego movie, Will Ferrell can play a man who tries to go to Legoland solo. It’ll be rated NA-17. (No one admitted without an under-17-year-old.) – L.
