You no longer have to take the kids to Florida or California to visit Legoland. The first Legoland Discover Center in the northeast has opened in Westchester and we hear it's fabulous. Though not as large as the amusement parks in Florida and California, the 32,000 square foot site is an "amazing and multi-faceted" attraction, according to a friend from Scarsdale who attended the opening. It's interactive and fun with two rides, a 4D movie theatre, an earthquake/building section, a car building section and also accommodates birthday parties. There's a special duplo building section for the younger set and parents will find intricate Lego models of local landmarks like Grand Central Station, Time Square, Lyndhurst and Sunnyside.
The new facility is designed for kids ages 3 to 10 – and in fact, anyone 13 years-old or over must be accompanied by a child to enter!
Plan to visit for 2-3 hours and book online in advance to be sure you are admitted. Prices are $22 for adults and $18 for kids ages 3-10. Kids 2 and under enter for free. They are open from 10 am daily and 11 am on Sundays and you can purchase tickets here:
