Why? Legoland Discovery Center!

On Friday, Jeffrey and I took a road trip down 71 South for the grand opening of the Legoland Discovery Center in Columbus.

Located in Easton Town Center, the Legoland Discovery Center is an immersive LEGO experience, with something for every age of LEGO enthusiast.

You begin your experience with a LEGO factory tour and a chance to make your own virtual mini LEGO.

From there, you enter the Kingdom Quest area, where you can go on the Kingdom Quest ride and help rescue the Princess and protect the dragon. Jeffrey found parts of this ride a little scary, but he was delighted with the cute baby dragon made out of LEGOs at the end.

We spent a lot of time exploring MiniLand, which features LEGO versions of Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Columbus.

From the Rock Hall to the Free Stamp to A Christmas Story House to the Terminal and Key Towers to the Fountain of Eternal Life, the LEGO version of Cleveland hit all the high points.

There was even one of the iconic Cleveland script signs!

We could also check out the Horseshoe and watch a LEGO version of a Buckeyes game.

Many of the elements of MiniLand featured movement, sound, and lights, from the football game to a concert to a dragon boat race.

The lights in MiniLand also went from day to night and back again. What a cool room and a testament to the amazing things you can build with LEGO!

From there, we checked out the building areas, with places to build and race your own LEGO race car,

tables to test your building’s earthquake stability,

and specialty LEGO Friends and DUPLO Farm areas.

These areas were Jeffrey’s favorite and he easily could have built and tested cars for hours!

We also went on Merlin’s Apprentice Ride (twice.) This ride spins you around and you can control the height of your car by how fast you peddle. Considering Jeffrey could barely reach the pedals, I got a good workout from this ride!

There is also a LEGO City play area with slides and climbing challenges…

…and a LEGO 4D theater screening the latest LEGO movies.

There is also an amazing birthday room, which kind of makes me want to invite everyone to drive 2+ hours for Jeffrey’s next birthday party!

Speaking of that, it’s obviously a drive from Cleveland to check out Legoland Discovery Center. But, there is a ton for families to enjoy both there and in Columbus (check out our trip there from last summer), plus Easton Town Center itself has great shopping and restaurants you can enjoy without even leaving the Legoland Discovery Center’s immediate area.

Tickets and annual passes are currently on sale online. So, take a road trip and build yourself a perfect day!

***Disclosure: I was asked to help promote Legoland Discovery Center. In exchange, I received two complimentary tickets to Legoland Discovery Center. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.***
