My kids love Lego and if we were a bit further north would be keen to go to the new LEGOLAND Discovery Centre. If you’re able to get to the Trafford Centre, Manchester, check out the Legoland shows that will be running during half term (15-18 February).
Help Duncan the Stock Control Officer and Ollie the Dragon as they track down the last things they need in order to open the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre on time. The audience will be encouraged to take part and there will be lots of opportunities to win Golden Tickets for the chance to be among the first to visit the Centre. In addition, characters staring in the shows will be conducting meet and greets with children between the performance times, and a LEGO activity zone will be available everyday at the Bandstand in The Orient, where children can help to build models which will be displayed at the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre when it opens on March 22 2010.
WHAT – A free, interactive, live LEGO® show for the whole family to enjoy
WHEN – 12 noon, 1.30pm and 3pm daily, Monday 15 February to Thursday 18 February 2010
WHERE – The Main Stage, The Orient, The Trafford Centre, Manchester
The LEGOLAND Discovery Centre will feature a LEGO Factory tour, revealing the secrets of how the famous bricks are made. Some components of the machinery will also be missing and will require help of the children to create new LEGO bricks.
A fantastic MINILAND will include all of the iconic landmarks from the north of England including The Trafford Centre, Blackpool Illuminations and the Big One, Peak District and intricate buildings such as Manchester Cathedral. Kingdom Quest, an interactive LEGO laser ride, will offer kids the chance to battle with trolls and skeletons to free the beautiful princess or they can feel part of the story in LEGO Studios – the 4D cinema where the wind will rush around their feet and LEGO bricks will fly around towards their heads.
Other features of the attraction include a LEGO Racers build and test track, LEGO Belville area – a DUPLO Village featuring a soft play section, plus a café and a shop featuring a fantastic range of LEGO products. Celebrations can be made even more memorable in one of the special party rooms, which can be personally themed to create the ultimate birthday party celebration!
The LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Live show is free of charge and families just need to turn up at the Main Stage to get a seat before the show starts.
