From the model rooms of Star Wars to the cityscape of Kansas City, LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Kansas City was fun for the whole family!
We began the day playing on the Kingdom Quest laser ride, a favorite the whole family can enjoy. We loved challenging each other to see who could get the highest score! The flying chariot at Merlin’s Apprentice, where guests pedal to go higher and higher, was also a highlight for the kids. It was helpful that we arrived right when they opened, going before the crowds that are typical later in the afternoon.
LEGO Miniland was full of intricate replicas of popular Kansas City landmarks and city skyline. The kids loved the interactive race track, and pushing the buttons on the displays of the Wizard of Oz to see the wicked witch ‘melting’.
This year, they also have a special Miniland Model Display of Star Wars Episode II! The amazing design and detail are incredible to see. As parents, this was our favorite part, really looking at each building and seeing what it took to create the final display.
The kids loved the play area, full of adventure through climbing nets and slides. The man staffing the play land was especially sweet, taking care of the kids and making sure a parent was present when they entered and left the play area. This was especially important when there was a large amount of people around.
The Quake station tested your building skills. You can build anything you want and hit the button to simulate a earthquake and see if your building can hold up to the shaking.
The Race Track, one of the most popular areas, featured 2 tracks that you can go head to head with others that have built cars from a vast range of blocks and wheels. The kids had a blast racing their cars down the ramps with some jumping over the finish line! It was fun to see the interaction of the parents with their kids working together to create different shaped cars.
The 4D Cinema featured two fun movies that made you feel like you were part of the action with the 3-D glasses, and wind, rain, and snow providing a cool experience. Be prepared to get a tiny bit wet!
LEGOLAND Discovery Center also has a Duplo area for the smaller kids, and has birthday rooms and a café. Every hour, a Master Builder Academy is also offered for those who want to build a small model with one of the staff.
We had a wonderful experience at the LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Kansas City!
