A Trip to Legoland

Our family of five (3 boys ages 3, 5, and 7) went to Legoland Discovery Center Philadelphia today. It was part of Brick-or-Treat Weekends so the kids got to wear their Halloween costumes. Our adventure started on the Imagination Express, where we were all given magic wands that allowed us to pop bubbles, catch fish, and destroy a spaceship. We exited the ride and entered the ultimate indoor Lego playground. The boys wanted to start building a car right away at one of the many building stations. It was nice that we got there early (we arrived about 20 minutes after they opened) because we had most of the building stations to ourselves. After a few minutes, we continued to work our way around Legoland. One section is called Miniland Philadelphia. They had recreated Philadelphia’s famous sights from over 1.5 million Lego bricks, including Lincoln Financial Field, the Art Museum (complete with Rocky running up the steps), and even Pat’s and Geno’s. Many of the landmarks were interactive. We then went to Pirate Adventure Island, where the kids played in a pirate ship jungle gym. After they were (slightly) worn out from climbing, we went to the 4D Cinema and saw a 12-minute Lego movie. The boys said this was their favorite part of the day. Then we went to the Lego Ninjago Training Camp, and I went through the laser maze with my 5 and 7 year olds. This was also a big hit. We went back to building cars and got to test them out on the racetrack/slide. Before heading to the Lego Shop, we took one last stroll through Miniland Philadelphia. The shop had a lot of Lego sets I had never seen before. We built our own minifigures to take home. Everyone had a great day. We are lucky to have Legoland so close to home!
