LEGOLAND Discovery Center Kansas City

Press Sample

Our family recently went on a working vacation to Kansas City, Missouri.  I say working because Hubs was attending the National Worship Leaders Conference, but it was also vacation in that we were able to visit family and have some fun while in town.  We thought it would be fun to take the kidlets to visit LEGOLAND Discovery Center Kansas City, since Hubs and Mister have such a fascination for the bricks.

LEGOLAND Discovery Center Kansas City is located at Crown Center and there are huge LEGO® people inside Crown Center that the kids fell in love with.

The LEGOLAND Discovery Center Kansas City hours are from 10AM-6PM Sunday through Thursday and from 10AM-7PM on Friday and Saturday.  Since we were visiting on a Saturday, we decided to get there before opening to avoid the lines.  We were actually the first people in line, which meant that Hubs, Mister, and Sister had complete dominion over the LEGO® bricks that are in bins outside.

Once inside, we went on the “factory tour” at the beginning, and Mister and Sister loved getting to crank the handles and push the levers on the machines.  They also enjoyed learning LEGO® facts.

After the tour, we hopped on a train for the on Kingdom Quest Laser Ride and went through a tunnel to fight off some beastly trolls and spiders to save the princess.  Our instructions were to not shoot the dragon, and fortunately, we didn’t.  Yay.  Mister enjoyed the ride, but Sister was scared of it.  🙁 Ah well.

Once inside the main Discovery area, we were greeted by bins of Legos, tables with Legos, and a large play area.  I think Sister spent about twenty minutes on the ball swing inside the play area.  LOL.  Then she noticed the cupcake Lego area.  She was smitten and busily assembled enough cupcakes to feed a small army.  She loves cupcakes, and Lego cupcakes are no exception!

Mister was drawn to the car building area, and proceeded to build several cars, with help from Daddy, that he then demolished on the race ramp. Super fun.

After the kidlets had their fill (eh, hem, the adults got bored after the 319th cupcake), we ventured into the Kansas City MINILAND®.  I was astounded by the realism with which the MINILAND® Kansas City was build.  Of course it would be realistic, though, with nearly 1.5 million LEGO® bricks!The kids loved how the lights cycled on and off to simulate daytime and nighttime in the city.  I loved that the stadiums were full of people.  Go. Chiefs.

After touring the KC MINILAND®, Mister and Daddy went to watch a Lego movie in the LEGO® 4D Cinema while Sister and I went back to the cupcakes. Again.  Mister LOVED the movie.  After that, we headed over to the Merlin’s Apprentice LEGO® ride, where Mister and Daddy pedaled their way into an apprenticeship.  Sister declined the ride, and instead watched through the fence.

All in all, we spent close to four hours of fun and discovery at LEGOLAND Discovery Center Kansas City.  As you can see, the kidlets had a funtastic time.  We enjoyed ourselves, as well, even if we did over-indulge in LEGO® cupcakes.  All those cupcakes would be great for a LEGOLAND Birthday Party, which you can book.  I’d rather have the personalized LEGO birthday cake, myself.  Winking smile
