If you are like me, walking into a LEGO store can be a dangerous thing. To misquote Boromir from Lord of the Rings1: “One does not simply walk into a LEGO store…” Indeed; chances are good that I will walk out with more than what I went in for (which is usually nothing). Now imagine a 34,000 square-foot indoor attraction holding more than 3 million LEGO bricks – complete with interactive attractions, play areas, a 4D cinema and LEGO rides! If you have kids and this does not interest you, well, I have no idea what to tell you other than: you are dead to me.
LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Toronto is located at Vaughan Mills, at the North end of Toronto. Geared towards children ages 3-10 and their families (you cannot gain admittance without children), the facility is a LEGO lover’s dream come true. Admission starts at around $18 (kids under 3 get in free) and the layout is pretty spectacular. Smallest Thumb and I have not yet had the opportunity to visit the site in person2, but their website is thorough and helpful.
