The Lego Discovery Centre is now open at Chadstone Shopping Centre in Melbourne!
Earlier this week I was lucky enough to take my 7 year old daughter Lottie and 4 year old son Sol along to the launch. The multi-million dollar attraction is filled with more than 2 million LEGO® bricks and 13 family friendly attractions, making it the ultimate indoor LEGO playground and is as awesome as it sounds!
What I found surprising was that unlike traditional play centres where everything is self-guided, the LEGO Discovery Centre is an evolving, experiential journey through different stages. It’s very interactive, with experiences including: rides, a 4D movie theatre, café, and an incredible play space and construction zones where kids are encouraged to play and create with all different types of Lego. There are even creative workshops.
The highlight for us was seeing an intricate reconstruction of Melbourne made entirely from LEGO, which was a brilliant way to teach the kids about our home city. For visitors to Melbourne, this is a great “highlights package” of our famous landmarks that you can then go explore in real-life.
Both of my children loved the whole experience and we will definitely be going back, especially during the approaching winter months.
Individual Admission tickets are $32.50, and annual passes $81, which I think is well worth it for the hours and hours of fun to be had. To help ensure everyone who visits has an enjoyable experience, entry is spread out into pre-allocated sessions, so I would advise you book ahead by visiting https://melbourne.legolanddiscoverycentre.com.au
Note. My family and I were a guest of LEGOLand Discovery Centre.
