What would it be like to live in the world of Legos? At LEGOLAND Discovery Center, a Lego-themed entertainment park, children ages 3-10 years old have the chance to find out. The highly interactive and educational experience takes place entirely indoors, where there are play areas for kids to build anything they can dream up with more Legos than they can even imagine. The center also features a 4D cinema, special party rooms for birthdays and celebrations, two rides, a Lego-building class taught by a master model builder and an exhibit that showcases the skyline of Atlanta–made out of Legos, of course!
The LEGOLAND Discovery Center also has the Ninjago Laser Maze, where kids can duck, dive and jump under, through and over laser beams. Of the two rides here, Kingdom Quest is by far the most popular and geared toward 5 to 10-year-olds. The play areas are separated–one for the older kids and one for children under 5. Another favorite area is the earthquake table, where kids can build Duplo towers. All of the play areas are made of safe with soft rubber matting so that if kids take a tumble, they will jump right back up and keep on playing.
Admission costs $19 for adults and $17 for children ages 3-12. It is free to enter for kids under 3. The site is open from 9am to 7pm Monday through Friday, with later hours (until 9pm) on Saturday. It is open from 10am to 7pm on Sunday. The Discovery Center is located in the Phipps Plaza, accessible by car or MARTA.
