Admission was provided for our family.
We didn’t get to do much over our holiday break, but we did manage to carve out some time to visit the LEGOLAND® Discovery Center in Philadelphia which is located in Plymouth Meeting. It was a bit of a drive for us, so we decided to board the dog so that we could spend the day there without feeling rushed. What I expected was more of a theme park similar to the one in Orlando. In fact, we were a bit confused when we made the last turn instructed by the GPS and we were at a mall.
This location is not a theme park but more of a miniature location which is accessed upon entering the mall. At 10:30am there was a long line for the ride that you must take in order to enter the center, after taking a few family photos which were available for purchase at the exit. The ride itself was cute with an interactive gaming aspect to it which our family enjoyed.
Once inside, you will find several areas where children can build their own LEGO worlds, a pirate ship play area, and slides, but most impressive were the professional displays which focused mainly on Philadelphia landmarks. Lots and lots of kragle was employed.
The large displays were set behind clear plexiglass to easily protect the structures while providing for easy viewing. Some vehicles and trains within the scenes moved which is exciting for kids to see.
We took a break for lunch at the food court but there is a snack area located inside at this location too. After showing our passes, we were able to re-enter the facility without having to wait in line for the ride again. Before we began to head home we saw the brief 4D movie which the kids enjoyed.
Due to the small size of the LEGOLAND® Discovery Center in Philadelphia, I can see why times reservations are suggested. These tickets may be purchased online at a discount, and you also have the option of a higher-priced ticket which allows you to enter any day or time you like.
Enter to win entry for a family of five to LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Philadelphia!
