A short jaunt by car or taxi will take families to the park's stunning attractions, famous the world over, including Duplo Land, a mini-park designed to entertain small children between the ages of 2-6 with rides and exhibits, and the Polar X-Plorer, a family-friendly roller coaster that is a visitor favorite. The enormous park has a wide variety of different areas, so be sure to plan at least a day (if not more) when scheduling a visit.
