We finally got to Lego Discovery Center, and boy did we love it! After seeing the LEGO Movie, being Duplo fans, and now collecting and building LEGO Juniors and Friends sets, this was the place for us. Located at Ridge Hill in Yonkers, it is less than 1 hour from our house. Our impromptu trip happened late in the day, walking in around 4pm on a Thursday. PERFECT, perfect timing the place was emptying out after a day of camp groups, family outtings and getting ready to close at 7pm.
From the moment you walk in there are games and things to do, Charlotte loved the LEGO Figures almost as tall as her. Jack jumped on the games to play, all interactive for the kids to enjoy. Tickets start at just $15 when purchased online for children (children 2 and under are free).
Leading to Kingdom Quest, a favorite of mine. Who in your car can score the most points with your laser. We went on this 4 times, everyone was having so much fun. Then you are dropped off in NYC made of LEGO bricks, called Miniland. It was incredible and there are several interactive buttons to touch and see figures move and lights, make sure to check it out.
We bought sandwiches and drinks at Cafe, found prices reasonable, even had kid meals. Check out how big this place is and all it has to offer.

The kids also loved the 4D movie, Merlin's Apprentice Ride and LEGO Racers Build and Test track. There is definitely something for all, girls/boys and young/old. Char loved playing with the Duplos in the under 5 section. When we went into LEGO Friends section, I heard "hey, i have those" and "they match my LEGO flowers".

We spent nearly 3 hours at LEGOLAND Discovery Center building, playing and going on the rides. Open year round, it is a great place to visit and nearby public transportation helps you get there even without a car. We will be going back soon, we left through the store and of course bought 2 new LEGO sets to build at home. For me? A LEGO Penguin keychain. Something for everyone!
