LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Toronto #Review

Ontario Attractions

Ontario Attractions

With 2 LEGO crazed children in our house, one of their top attractions to visit is LEGOLAND Discovery Centre at Vaughan Mills.  I must admit that as a past, present and future LEGO lover myself, I love going too!  In a world all about LEGO, how could you not have a fun time?!

photo-7

There are so many different areas to visit at LEGOLAND but I think one of the best areas is the Miniland!  In Miniland you will find some of the best landmarks in Toronto built out of LEGO.  As the room changes from day to night, you can see buildings like the CN Tower, Banks, drive-in at Polson Pier, Toronto Airport and of course the Rogers Centre and ACC. Oh and don’t forget to visit Niagara Falls while you’re there too.

How Ninja are you?  Well now’s your time to find out at the Ninjago Laser Training Camp!  Test your reflex speed as you compete against your friends at the flashing light wall.  See who can hit the most flashing lights before time runs out.  aTest your agility and speed as you avoid laser beams to make it through the laser maze.  Can you make it through in Ninja fast speed without touching any beams? Don’t worry if you are nervous about being successful, there are different levels of difficulty.  My son loved this area and did the laser maze quite a few times in an effort to beat his past record and stay ahead of his sister’s score.

We even went to school when were at LEGOLAND and it was fun…true fact!  Be sure to join a Master Builder Academy when you are there to do your own LEGO build and kern tips, tricks and facts about LEGO from the Master themselves.

The 4D Cinema is one of my kids’s favourite areas.  With your 3D glasses on you can watch short LEGO films that the kids just love. There are 4 different films that rotate throughout the course of the day so be sure to watch the ticker to let you know what’s up next.  Watch one or all four and you are sure to be in for some cool surprises.

Make your own race car out of LEGO and race it down the ramps in LEGO Racers Build & Test area to see if you can beat the rest of the little competitors.

photo 3-7 IMG_6843 photo 4-8

 Once you’ve done all of the above there is still so much more to do.  Take a ride on Merlins Apprentice, try and be the top scorer on Kingdom Quest Laser Ride, climb around in the LEGO Fire Academy, test out his stable your LEGO creation is against the Earthquake table and visit the LEGO Friends area.
