LegoLand – Kansas City

ldc-center-logo.png

Located in Crown Center in Kansas City, MO   Website

I suggest purchasing your tickets online in advance to guarantee entry at your requested time.  We logged in to reserve an entry time for a Friday on Thursday evening and all the morning spots were filled.  Instead, we took a 3:30pm entry time and it was perfect! There were only a few other families there so we were able to fully explore every thing and even do some of the attractions multiples times!

I absolutely loved this place! I think the boys are still a bit too young to really appreciate it, but they had fun!

Factory Tour

The LegoLand adventure starts with a Factory Tour where you can see how LEGO bricks are made, allowing guests to mold, mix and paint the bricks.  There is also a scale where you can weigh yourself in LEGO bricks and a ruler to see how many LEGO bricks high you stand.

Kingdom Quest Laser Ride

Hop on board a four person chariot and use laser guns to battle trolls and skeletons in order to save the princess! The highest score in each chariot wins the game.  As expected, this ride is dimly lit with various TV battles and pop ups. Owen, the 18 month old, did not enjoy this ride as I think he was too young and was afraid of it.

Ninjago Training Camp

This relatively new attraction allows guests to play various games such as a high-tech version of Whack-A-Mole, or navigate through a laser maze! This attraction was targeted towards older children, so we didn’t explore this area too much.

MiniLand 

Witness the local area come to miniature life in the spectacular MINILAND®. Made from nearly 1.5 million LEGO® bricks, with moving airships and trains, even the smallest spectator will feel like a giant!  Builds include the Royals and Chiefs stadiums, the Kansas Speedway, Kansas City Skyline/downtown and the world of Wizard of Oz.

Watch as night falls on the Kansas city skyline, the lights come up and the LEGO population enjoys the beautiful LEGO night.

In the magical world of The Wizard of Oz. Travel from Dorothy’s Farm, where you can set her house spinning, over the rainbow to Munchkin Land and end your journey in The Emerald City (where you can cause the witch to melt).

Merlin’s Apprentice Ride

Help Merlin with his magic by pedaling your bike as fast as you can to help create the magic potion on our Merlin’s Apprentice LEGO® ride.  The faster you pedal, the higher you will go!

Lego Racers: Build & Test

Let your kids creative juices run wild and build their own race cars.  They can then race them against other cars on one of two speed test tracks.

 

Lego City Play Zone

Jump into the indoor play zone, Fire Academy and Construction Site, side by side with climbing walls, slides and a jungle gym.  The play area is good for all kids up to 56” tall. Make sure to bring socks!

Lego 4D Cinema

We really enjoyed the 4D Cinema. Yes, keeping the 3D glasses on the 18 month old was impossible, but he stayed engaged despite the fuzzy picture he saw!

We saw the film, Clutch Powers Lego Racers, which included wind, rain, snow and lightning.  My 3.5 yr old talked about this long after we left LegoLand!

And so much more…

There’s a section for LEGO Friends fans, with Olivia’s House welcoming the kids to build brick flowers and sing karaoke.

For the younger children, DUPLO Village has plenty of larger blocks and even soft ones that they can build and play with.

Wind down from your LEGO discovery in the Discovery Center Café with a relaxing cup of tea or coffee.

Use your imagination and transform into an artist to create your best mural out of LEGO Brick in the Art Gallery. Afterward, put your design on display for all of our guests to see!

Build the tallest tower you can with as many LEGO bricks as possible! Stand back and watch as the plates move and test the strength of your tower at the Earthquake Tables!

When you are down with LegoLand, you take an elevator downstairs to the Retail Shop.  Here you can purchase all of the best seller and new Lego sets! There are a few large builds located around the shop, which the boys enjoyed.

Oh and I almost forgot…even the bathrooms are decked out in the Lego theme! (I really enjoyed this touch!)

We really enjoyed LegoLand and will definitely be back! I look forward to a couple years from now, when the boys are able to fully enjoy all of the attractions!
