5 Things We Know You Will Love at LEGOLAND Discovery Center

We received four complimentary admissions to LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Columbus, Ohio. Opinions are my own.

There aren't many things that will bring my kids together like playing with LEGO.  Sure, they share many interests, but not like LEGO. They can play together or independently, enjoy a movie together, or explore an exhibit.

LEGOLAND Discovery Center is a brand new way for them to share their love of LEGO! 

And, just two hours away from Cleveland!

There are rides!

No roller coasters or anything crazy, but there are two, interactive rides - Kingdom Quest laser ride and Merlin’s Apprentice.

After the virtual tour of a LEGO plant, you are guided on to Kingdom Quest. You can shot things to save the princess.


Merlin's Apprentice goes up if you peddle! And, down when you don't.

Trading Mini figures!

Okay, not just trading mini figures. I mean bringing a mini figure to trade with the amazing LEGOLAND staff is pretty cool, even for me. Kids can trade as many times they want with as many staff they can find.

And, my kids were given buttons when they were trying to ask about the activity pack. (Which is a $5 scavenger hunt with activities!)

Miniland!

It's Columbus in LEGO blocks!

Also, a corner dedicated to Cincinnati and Cleveland. Not sure why there was a half-built castle in North Coast Harbor, but I hope the mayor gets the hint!

Building with LEGO!

4D Movies!

You could go to the movie theater and see boring 3D movies, but you are at LEGOLAND Discovery Center! Watch a LEGO movie with 3D glasses and feel the wind, rain, and snow!


Final Thoughts

My biggest concern, before going, was that my 13-year-old would not enjoy LEGOLAND Discovery Center. His love for LEGO runs deep but, he is 13-years-old. My fears were put to rest almost immediately. Not only did he have more fun than most of the kids there, but we are also planning his birthday trip to Columbus that will include another visit as well as a day at the Columbus Zoo.

If we lived closer, I would certainly invest in the family annual passes. We are looking forward to the next time we go!
