Legoland Discovery Centre in Vaughan


Not too long ago, as we were in Vaughan on a rainy day, we decided to take advantage of an offer to visit the Legoland Discovery Centre.   We knew in advance that it wouldn’t be super exciting for the older kids in our family but we were in the area anyway.   

Legoland DIscovery Centre contains rides and attractions inside one facility.   Not only can you experience a mini tour of the factory, watch a 4D movie, experience a ride where you go on a quest, see various minilands, but you can also build cars, experience and earthquake, climb a mini gym and do a ride.  Also you can celebrate birthdays and eat a a Café.

The two first sections of the Legoland Discovery Centre is the “How bricks are made” and a Kingdom Quest Laser Ride that you can do with your family.  The game consists of accumulating points by shooting the enemies of the princess.  You will travel in a mini roller coaster cart but the path is very straight.  The whole game last about 5 minutes or so. 

Here Jasmine and Jérémy are bringing yellow plastic beads up the machine in order to make lego bricks.


In this specific area, you can discover how much bricks you weight…


As part of this visit, you also get a special brick for you to keep.


As soon as we passed the how bricks are made demo and the Kingdom Quest Laser Ride , we walked into an amazing detailed mini  city of Toronto.


The kids could play with the sets of baseball and the hockey games if they felt like it.


Two other landmarks of Ontario were also there – the Niagara Falls and the Parliament in Ottawa.


Star Wars is also feature at the Discovery Centre including a giant scale Darth Vader with which the kids had fun posing with it… 


In a specific section of the Discovery Centre you can also visualize specific scenes from the Star Wars movies.   Each of the scenes are fabulously made and contains numerous details.


Throughout the Discovery Centre, you will find multiple figurines built at a bigger scale.  Jasmine couldn’t resist to sit among her favorite friends.


In another part of the Discovery Centre, the kids can built cars or simulate an earthquake for their tower.


Finally, a ride and an indoor gym are also included inside the Discovery Centre.  


Our younger kids enjoyed it while we were visiting the Centre.    While visiting the Discovery Centre we also attended the 4D cinema which was interesting.  We watched something based on the Chima line of products and was able to experience a different kind of movie watching with special things happening while watching.  But to be honest, I was disappointed because I have experience a 4D movie before and that one was much better when it came to the sensations to experience while watching the movie.  We had a great time exploring the miniland Toronto and observe the details put in each section.   We also enjoyed quite a bit the miniland Star Wars which was in a different section of the Discovery Centre. 

Please note that the Legoland Discovery Centre is more geared to families with children aged 3-10 years old.   Tickets to visit the Legoland Discovery Centre start from 17.60 if you purchase them online or 22$ and more if you purchase when you walk-in.  Kids up to 2 years of age are free.

Oh and when you get to the cashier, the person will offer you an extra passport for the price of 5$ in case you want your child to fill it in.   Inside there are activities and places where you can get some stamps.  At the end of the visit, the child will also get an extra gift by showing the passport.   Between you and me I would prefer to have this passport included in the price of the ticket.

Finally, when you exit the Legoland Discovery Centre, you will be directed into the Lego Store in the mall.  So be prepare in advance depending if you want to spend extra money on Lego kits or not.

Legoland Discovery Centre is located inside the Vaughan Mills at 1 Bass Pro Mills Drive, Vaughan, ON.


Note to my readers.   I have taken numerous pictures while we were visiting Legoland DIscovery Centre in Vaughan, ON.  However, I didn’t want to post all of these out of respect to the attraction.  So if you want to see more of it, I would suggest you go visit Legoland Discovery Centre.
