Spring is just around the corner and so is Spring break! For us parents with little ones and opted for a staycation in Michigan, it’s always a great idea to take our kids for a little weekend adventure.
My kids are Lego fanatics, so when we got the opportunity to partner with Legoland Discovery Center Michigan they were jumping with joy and excitement. Every kid or atleast most kids love Legos. Well, this place is a gem to all Lego lovers out there!
First of all, I was really amazed with the interactive models of the Detroit area landmarks. We were in awe, on how they create and build these models and also I’m wondering how long it took them to put all these little bricks together. It is just amazing ! Anyways, let’s cut to the chase and proceed on….
What to do in Legoland Discovery Center Michigan
- Discover Miniland – this area is an art show gallery of all the models that are made with Lego bricks. We love the interactive models featuring Detroit area landmarks, the kids had fun playing with them. Their favorite is the Comerica Park. Also, it’s so cool to watch the miniland changes from day to night.
How cool are those skyscrapers made with Lego bricks behind my kids’ photo. Yes, they are huge. It’s mind boggling how they do this. It took me forever to build just a house that one time, I’m just not so patient. My husband is the one who assisted my kids with their Legos. But my son Lucas, is the Lego expert in our house. He is so patient and so good in building his Legos, his desk is filled with Lego models he built himself. I’m so proud that he is passionate on what he likes to do and also credits to my husband for helping him build his Legos when he was still 3 years old. As time goes by he learned and he started to create and build things on his own.
2. Creative Workshop – A master builder is assigned for you to learn some Lego building techniques. It’s pretty cool to watch the participants did the workshop. You just have to watch out for the time slot of the workshop. We intend to do the workshop but we keep missing it, but it’s a great thing to do.
3. Play at the Duplo Farm, Earthquake tables and Lego Friends – My kids had a blast in this area and the most we spend our time on. They go back and forth going through the Duplo Farm, Earthquake tables and Lego Friends. They are all right next to each other, so it wasn’t hard to keep an eye on both kids.
This is the Earthquake table, when you press a button the table will mimic an Earthquake movement. By that, it will shake the blocks. The kids enjoyed this a lot, especially Olivia. As you can tell by the picture on top.
This is the Lego Friends area, my little girl enjoyed playing with the villages, buildings, cafes and automobiles. Olivia was in Lego Friends high.
This is the Duplo Farm, they have a mini playground for the little kids and huge Lego blocks, almost like a life size. Olivia made a chair out of these giant blocks but I didn’t get to take a picture of it, blogger fail. I wonder what I was doing that time. I can’t believe i didn’t get to take a picture of it, that would have been so cool. You know the saying nowadays, if there’s no photo it didn’t happened.
4. Lego Build and Race – This is my son Lucas’ favorite area of all, he probably can hang out here all day. You build your own race car then you race it. As you can tell by this photo, he is in deep concentration and determined to win a race. Go Lucas go!
5. Watch 4-d Cinema – in this Cinema we get to experience with rain, wind and even snow, all under one roof. We watched the Legends of Chima at that time and my little girl was so funny, she keep on trying to reach the 4d characters, thinking she can grab it with her hands. It’s so cute to watch her.We all love this 4D theater experience.
6. Ride the Kingdom Quest and Merlin Apprentice Ride – we had a blast on these rides, I love the Kingdom Quest the most because all four of us can get into one ride. The Merlin Apprentice is awesome too. Ofcourse, the kids had the time of their lives. Who doesn’t love rides? Most of us do!
7. Eat at the Cafe – if you are hungry or your kids are hungry, you don’t have to go out to grab something to eat. They have sandwiches, salads and sweet treats. They have coffee and other beverages.
8. Play at the Jungle Gym – the fun never stops with these two kids. They were happily climbing, sliding and playing with other kids. If you got toddlers, it’s better to have them play at the Duplo Farm because even my 4 years old was having a hard time here. Unless if you want to go in the jungle gym too with your little one. The school aged kids had a blast here though.
9. Shop at the Lego Store – after all the fun activities, it’s time to go shopping. Shop till you drop !
We truly enjoyed our experience at Legoland. As you can tell on my sons’ photo on top, he looks tired and worn out but his eyes and his smile is glowing with happiness. My little girl on the other hand, was already in her stroller and kind of cranky. She was ready to retire from a long day of fun.
This smile from my son is truly the joys of parenthood that outweighs the stress of parenthood. We all know that our day to day life as parents is not easy breezy but moments like these that we get to spend time with our kids and seeing them all happy, is just priceless and something we wouldn’t trade for.
Up next, will be our visit to Sea Life Aquarium Michigan. So stay tune for that post. I believe that you can do both Legoland and Sea Life in one day, plus you can also get a better deal on that and save up to $10 per person. Check out the tickets HERE .
Thank you so much for reading and have a great day!
