LEGOLAND Discovery Centre is an interactive and fun filled activity for the whole family, where visitors can delve into the colorful and creative brick world of Lego. The first stop upon entering the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre is the Lego Factory. A tour takes visitors through different stations showing how Legos are designed, manufactured and tested. And, just in case you were ever wondering, you can find out your weight and height in Lego bricks. Afterwards, the Miniland, a perfect replica of the Toronto skyline and waterfront in miniature awaits, including many well-known landmarks and attractions such as the CN Tower, City Hall and the Rogers Centre. The attention to detail is incredible and includes little Lego pedestrians and spectators, moving vehicles as well as daylight and nighttime adjustments.
The LEGOLAND Discovery Centre is mostly geared towards children between the ages of 2 and 10. There are two Lego-themed rides, one of which is an interactive laser shooting game, as well as a 4D theatre where short films are shown regularly. In a more educational section, a build-and-test area encourages creation or construction and testing. Smaller children can play in a soft play and Duplo area filled with bins of Legos and the older, more adventurous kids have the option to learn how to build different Lego creations in the Master Model Builder Academy. There, a master builder teaches Lego modeling workshops in a mini classroom setting and gives a crash course in stacking the bricks to create detailed masterpieces.
LEGOLAND Discovery Centre is part of the Vaughan Mills Shopping Centre north of Toronto. Opening hours for the attractions are from 10am to 7:30pm between Monday and Thursday, from 10am to 9pm on Fridays and Saturdays and from 10am to 7pm on Sundays. Holidays and special event days can have different opening times. Adults are not admitted to the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre without children. However, regular adult nights are held once a month as well.
