Kids love building with LEGO’s, as well as adults. Westchester has the perfect place for LEGO-loving families to let loose, have fun, and build beyond their imaginations: the LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester.

 LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester RACERS Build and Test

Visiting the very place where some of New York’s top landmarks are made out of LEGO bricks can be exciting for any kid, especially for two-year-old Anil and his family. During their first visit to the LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester they were able to learn secrets from the Master Model Builder, experience the LEGO center’s indoor soft play, and enjoy rides like the Kingdom Quest.  Keep reading to find out more about their LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester experience.

Anil LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester

The Kingdom Quest is an automated car which comes with a laser gun at each seat.  Throughout the ride you aim at monsters and dragons throughout the ride.  It’s a short ride, but all of the action happens in the dark so if your child is scared of the dark you can easily skip this ride.  We also enjoyed the experience of the Merlin’s Apprentice, this is a “carousel” type ride which has cars with pedals.  As the ride goes around the lights changes which makes it a better experience for the little ones.

DUPLO Village LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester

Anil enjoyed the 4D movie because he tried to catch and feel the figures as they appear in front of him.  Anil’s favorite was the LEGO Duplo Village where he played with the huge soft bricks and went up and down the mini slide.  There is also a LEGO Friends Village which has a pretend ice cream café and a karaoke machine.  There were girls having fun trying to sing along to the songs.  If you have a little builder in your family, they can try out the Build & Test area where they can build a race car and test it out on different tracks.

The LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester is the perfect place for smaller children like Anil and even for our five-year-old, but be sure to keep an eye out for the bigger kids who are also running around, and may not see your little ones. Also, there are lots of LEGO bricks on the floor, just watch your step because we all know how painful stepping on a LEGO brick can be.  Plan to spend, on average, 2-3 hours to enjoy of the LEGO fun.

    My husband and I both grew up playing with Legos. Even though we don’t have kids, we can be kids a heart and check it out next time we’re in the area.

  • Katherine Gilbert

    I love Legos still. I think we would have fun at this Legoland discovery. My teenagers love the one here in Atlanta. I enjoy seeing what can be created out of Legos.

  • My son just got rid of the last of his Legos on his 13th birthday. We donated all of them.

  • I loved Legoland Florida and have been meaning to take my nieces and nephews to the store in NYC. Looks like they had a great time.

  • My son is almost 12 and still loves his Legos. We’ve not been to a Legoland because we don’t have any near us. I know both of my kids would totally enjoy it.

  • I wonder if this is something my boys would enjoy. Sounds like fun!

  • Kayvona B.

    Oh my goodness my daughter would love that! We live in MN and have a Lego Land at the Mall of America and that is one of her favorite places to go! So I know she would definitely enjoy this too!

  • Tia Chambers

    What an awesome treat! I am sure my nephew would love this!

  • My girls would be over the moon if I took them to this museum. I can’t wait to plan a trip. Loved your pictures.

  • My son is only 1 and he’s already into Legos. He will definitely enjoy a place like this!

  • Holly

    Didn’t know there was one in Westchester. Very cool and good to know.

  • Eva

    My kids really love legos! My feet don’t love em, but they do! I think I’d love a lego experience where the legos stayed wherever they were playing with them. I think mine would enjoy the 4D movie too.

  • Kemkem

    I remember playing with Legos when l was child. It’s cool to see that they still rock after all these years with kids and adults alike. Looks like you had a great time.
