Legoland California is honoring U.S. Military members and their families by offering a free ticket with the purchase of three regular admission tickets when purchased at base tickets and tours offices.

The park, first opened in 1999, is geared for children 2-12 years old but has plenty of attractions and entertainment for adults as well.

"This park is great. We're having a great time, and it's good for the kids," said Navy Lt. Keith Atkins, Fort Harrison, Mont., after he and his son, Colby, enjoyed a ride on the Bionicle Blaster.
