Once you have entered Legoland you are able to have your photo taken by one of the Legoland Photographers and purchase a memorable keepsake to take home should you wish. You then hop into the lift and head to the short lego talk and demonstration, this educates you on how lego is actually made. There are opportunities for the children (& adults) to participate should you require! Plus the children get to take home a small lego keepsake.
Once the demonstration has finished you head towards Kingdom Quest, a small ‘ride’ I use the term ride lightly as it’s a small car that holds maximum 4 people you use the guns attached to the car and shoot the baddies with your laser and get points as you go around.
Up next is Miniland where you can look at different places built with lego, Some personal favourites are Blackpool & London.
Once we had looked around we headed straight to the 4D cinema, you are given some 4D glasses and you get to watch a short film which was fun! The lego characters go on a little mission have a go and see if you can touch them!
All my son wanted to do was go on the ride, you have to pedal as fast as you can in order to get as high as you can. It’s like a competition between the others mums and dads to see who can get there child he highest. (Well…. I was treating it like a competition!)
We did queue for the other ride where your child can drive one of the cars around a small track however the lady deemed my son 1/2 inch too small never mind!
Whilst visiting Legoland I couldn’t quite believe it when we bumped into one of my favourite ever Disney characters Buzz Lightyear!
There are so many things to keep you entertained whilst at Legoland Discovery Centre and if you decide to visit if you haven’t already just remember to look out for any discounts beforehand!
Inside there is a cafe so you can enjoy a bite to eat or a drink/snack there are plenty tables providing you don’t go in the middle of peak time. (School Holidays etc…)
When you exit be sure to check out any photos you have had taken! You exit through the lego shop so there’s even more lego to look at and take home should you wish!
Thanks for reading and don’t forget if you love it take a look at the annual pass they have to offer its incredible value for 2018! You can also combine it with Sealife Centre which is literally next door!
