Excitement is building for the opening of LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Birmingham, launching on July 5th this year. With less than a month until doors open, the public has been given a sneak-peak of what is to come, as a 10ft tall giraffe guards the entrance, built from 30,000 Lego bricks.

The £7 million attraction is built on almost 60,000 square feet (about the size of a football pitch), and will be a major boost for families searching for ways to keep kids entertained in the City Centre. It will feature more than three million Lego Bricks, in all colours, shapes and sizes, which they want people to be able to pick up and build anyway in the attraction.

The centre boasts 10 themed LEGO play zones, including a DUPLO farm, a Build & Test Area, and a huge soft play area. There are educational areas, a café for adults, and a 4D cinema. In the cinema, visitors can witness a 3D film become a 4D cinema experience complete with rain, wind and even snow. It will also feature 2 rides – Merlin’s Apprentice & Kingdom Quest Laser Ride.

As well as family days out, this new attraction will also cater for various kinds of school trips to support the National Curriculum in the Manchester area, and Lego-themed birthday parties, developing creativity and imagination. LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Birmingham will undoubtedly excite families and city leaders alike, and there isn’t too much longer to wait!

Tickets to the Park start at £15 and numbers are limited. Booking is available online now.
