This past weekend we had the pleasure of finally checking out Legoland Discovery Center right outside of Boston. We planned a fun mini weekend vacation with Madison, and this was first on our to do list.
Where is Legoland Discovery Center?
Located in Somerville, Massachusetts, right outside of Boston. It is located at Assembly Square, which has many outlets, restaurants, an AMC movie theater and the best of all… Legoland! The parking garage is located right next door to the entrance and the first three hours are free and every hour after is only a dollar. This was a great deal.
I definitely would recommend buying your tickets in advance online Here! When booking, you will be asked to select a date and time for your entry. This allows them to ensure you have an enjoyable experience with faster entrance into the attraction and reduced crowding. Once inside, you may stay as long as you like. I loved this feature because once we got inside we never felt like it was crowded. Ticket prices start at 18.50 online, and are a few dollars more at the door. Children 2 and under are free!
When we arrived we immediately went and checked in and you immediately take a photo in front of a green screen. Once you are upstairs you are able to purchase this souvenir photo. We got onto the elevator and went onto the second floor which we all lined up and waited to be let in. The first room we got to experience was a virtual movie where the Lego’s showed us around the laboratory and we had to yell out if we saw and magical yellow blocks.
Once the doors opened we walked into the next room which was the line for the Kingdom Quest ride. This ride was a blast, where the goal is to save the princess with your laser gun. You get to zap spiders, trolls, and spooky skeletons throughout the ride.
LEGOLAND Discovery Center Boston has a lot of different areas to explore once you’re inside and through the ride. Inside you’ll find:
- Miniland Boston
- LEGO 4D Cinema
- Merlin’s Apprentice Ride
- LEGO Factory Tour
- LEGO Master Builder Academy
- LEGO City Play Zone
- LEGO Racers – Build & Test
- Duplo Farm
- Earthquake Tables
- LEGO Friends
- LEGO Retail Shop
We headed off to MINILAND, and this area was amazing! It is built with over 1.5 million lego bricks! You get to see Boston come to life with interactive displays, touch screens and sound effects.
Overall, we really enjoyed our time visiting. We did spend about three hours there, and I think that was the perfect amount of time, especially with a busy 4 year old. I recommend this for kiddos ages 3-10. I think any older the kids may get bored easily but the in between ages all seemed to be having a blast.
