We recently took a trip to Atlanta and of course we had to make a stop at Lego Discoveryland while we were there. There are many attractions, you could really spend a whole day there. We started our visit by touring the factory, this is an interactive experience, the kids read about each process and interact with a tablet at each station.
Next we moved on to Miniland and this was amazing for both the kids and adults, made from nearly 1.5 million Lego bricks with moving airplanes and trains. Featured in Miniland are many of the real life attractions you will find around Atlanta, Turner Field, the Bank of America Building, Stone Mountain and World of Coca-Cola just to name a few. As day turns to night the lights in the room dim and the city comes to life with lighted buildings, streetlights and cars.
After strolling through Miniland we took an interactive ride on the Kingdom Quest Laser Ride, hop in your chariot and take on the ogres, rats and cats, keep an eye out for treasure chests to earn more points. If you can zap them all, the Princess will be saved! Of course since we are talking about Lego’s there is a huge amount of different building stations scattered throughout. Visit the Lego Friends Olivia House,Lego Fire Academy or Construction site for more Legos than your child will know what to do with. You can even build your own Lego Racer and time your racing car on the speed test track. The stopwatch is exact to the hundredths of a second, so even the smallest change could make all the difference!
By now the kids were starving so we headed over to the Lego Cafe which features food provided by Atlanta Bread Company, so there is a variety of sandwiches with healthy options for the kids so this was great.
After getting our bellies full it was time to move on to one of the kids favorite parts of the whole experience, Merlin’s Apprentice Ride. Pedal as fast as you can to lift up off the ground and look out over the rest of LEGOLAND Discovery Center! After the kids were done flying across Discoveryland we went to the 4D Cinema. Featuring the Legends of Chima movie, we watched Laval the Lion and Cragger the Crocodile battle it our for the power of CHI. The 4D experience means you will feel the wind in your hair and as you fly by the waterfall you will feel the mist of the fall and we even ran into a few snowflakes.
We really enjoyed our trip to the Lego Discoveryland. After you finish the tour and visiting all of the attractions of course there is a Lego Store so be sure to stop in and grab a Lego set or let the kids do some window shopping for the holidays. There are also Lego Discoverylands located in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Kansas City and Westchester plus locations in Canada, Japan, Germany and the UK, find info about all of the locations here.
