LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Michigan is opening soon, just a few days away. Are you excited? Want to see what they have to offer? We were able to visit Wednesday during their Media preview event and we all had so much fun.
If you haven't heard, LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Michigan took over the old Jeepers space at Great Lakes Crossing Outlets last year. The location is perfectly situated in District 6, by the food court and not too far from Merlin Entertainment's other attraction at GLC, Sea Life.
LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Michigan is a 32,000 square-foot indoor LEGO® attraction where kids can spend hours creating, learning, playing and having fun. The theme park features 10 different attractions and opens on Friday, March 25, 2016.
When you enter, you will be instructed to stand on a colored dot in the waiting room for the LEGO® Factory (light blue circle on the map) This is an interactive movie will show you how LEGO® bricks are made, including how they get their shape and color! Don't worry about what color you get, each experience offers the same opportunities at each station.
The Kingdom Quest Laser Ride (big dark blue rectangle on the map) offers guests the experience of riding in a chariot and using their laser to zap the bad guys away in attempt to rescue the princess. The kids all loved this ride and asked to go again.
The Merlin's Apprentice Ride (green circle on the map) is a wizard themed indoor ride that encourages guests to pedal as fast as they can to see how high they can get.
The LEGO® DUPLO® Farm (large green rectangle on the map) is the perfect place for younger guests to explore. There's a ring filled with DUPLO® bricks and another with larger bricks and a super fun house and slide.
