We recently went on a trip to Kansas City and while there we did something for the boys. We went to LEGOLAND Discovery Center! We got there right at 10 in the morning when they opened and the line was not to bad at that point. We walked in after given them our vouchers in exchange for tickets and they took a picture of our family (one you have to pay for- sorry didn’t check out pricing). They then walk us to an elevator and send us on our way.
The first room we walked into had just little fun facts about Legos. It showed a mold example of a lego brick. You got to watch “Master Builders” create things with Lego’s. Yes boys and dads, you could actually get paid to sit and play with Lego’s all day! Anyway- One of the fun things in the room is figuring out how much you weigh in Lego Bricks! As you can see with the picture Little Man would way almost 21,000 Lego bricks and Little Miss would weigh almost as much as 14,000. No Popo and I did not step on that scale!
The next thing we came across was a fun little ride in honor of the Knights. You got in this little carriage type car and it had some laser guns fashioned to look like flintlocks. You got to shoot the laser at the bad knights, or skeletons, or bats and spiders. Anything to help save the kingdom. GO figure- the boys were way better then us girls!
They had another room with some Lego Star Wars pieces. They had complete battle scenes built and animated. But then we walked into a room full of things you can find in KC:
This was really fun to see. When we first walked in it was “daytime” but then all of a sudden the main lights dimmed and the Lego creations lit up. We found downtown KC, Kansas Motor Speedway, the Royal’s stadium, the Chief’s stadium and more! This was one area we spent the longest in just taking everything in. It was also interactive so the kids could make the cars race, or make a rock band play. That really brought the whole thing to life.
I could go into detail everything we saw and did, but really this post would be way long if I did that. There was one more ride we enjoyed, Little Man built and raced a car, Little Miss played with Lego friends, then they found a big play area they could run and crawl in. During that time the Popo ended up MIA, I wonder if they have a code red for missing Dads lol. While looking I did come across this pretty cool picture:
Can you imagine putting all those little pieces of Lego’s together to come up with that big picture? Any way, back to the search of the missing Dad/Popo. We found him sitting on the edge of a giant pile of Lego’s building a boat. Little Man quickly climbed in and joined him.
While sitting there I noticed we were by their cafe. They had salad and cute little sandwich boxed meals for kids in lunch boxes made to look like Lego’s and many other goodies. Sitting there made me hungry so we traveled on (sorry couldn’t eat there since they are not Gluten Free) and finished through Legoland. To exit you go down an elevator and exit through their Lego store. Little Man was in Lego heaven! We let him pick out a set and Little Miss picked out a necklace with a dolphin on it (the SEALIFE gift shop is in the same store) and we moved on to our lunch!
This place was a lot of fun if you are into Lego’s. I had more fun watching Little Man and Popo then anything else. Little Miss enjoyed it as well but not as much as the boys. I highly recommend visiting there if you go to Kansas City this summer!
