LEGOLAND Discovery Centre, Manchester

Located in Barton Square, at The Trafford Centre in Manchester, the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre is made up of a series of interactive features to immerse kids into a world where their imagination can run wild with creative inspiration at every turn. The Centre not only provides fun for LEGO fans young and old, but fantastic educational benefits too.

Newest to the attraction is the pop-up walk-through LEGO Star Wars™ MINILAND Model Display which offers an intergalactic immersion into the sights and sounds of Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace.

From the rolling hills of Naboo, with its ancient domed city and cascading waterfalls, to the treacherous terrain of the desert planet of Tattooine, the incredible landscapes will be recreated using LEGO bricks.

Plus built-in games will offer hands on fun for even the youngest of Padawans who can take part in a thrilling Podrace with the young Anakin Skywalker and help defeat the evil Droid Army in the ‘Droid Destruction’ game.

The display is made up of over 250,000 LEGO bricks, is home to 2000 LEGO Star Wars minigures and took 2,000 man hours to create! It will be open to the public from Friday 1 February until Sunday 2 June.

The attraction also features a bespoke LEGO Friends area and LEGO City Forest Pursuit Driving Adventure. Since its launch in March 2012 the LEGO City Forest Pursuit Driving Adventure has become a firm favourite with guests, including celebrity visitor Ben Fogle. The driving ride, which is complete with battery powered LEGO Jeeps guests can drive for themselves, is just for the kids - sorry mum and dad! It sees them pursue the bad guys through the forest to bring peace and justice to LEGO City once again. Expect an exploding mine, helicopters over head and maybe even a bear or two!

Guests can also climb aboard their chariot on Kingdom Quest and set off on the quest to defeat the skeletons, vanquish the trolls, and free the captured princess. Chariots come equipped with mounted laser guns to help beat the trolls and skeletons as they appear.

The 4D cinema shows two action packed films including the latest LEGO favourite Clutch Powers. Viewers get to play an essential character in the action adventures that unfold before their eyes as they experience whatever happens to the cinematic heroes - including wind, snow and rain.

In March 2013 the cinema will be welcoming The Legends of Chima 4D. The all new 12 minute animated 4D film, complete with high impact special effects, will immerse audiences in the fantastical LEGO world of Chima where tribes of animal warriors compete in epic battles for CHI, a mystical energy source of limitless power and destruction.

The story follows four young animals as they take a guided tour of Chima with Plovar the Parrot and become entwined in a struggle between good and evil as they help their hero Laval the Lion Prince do battle with Cragger the Crocodile King. State of the art 3D animation will bring the audience right into the heart of their journey as they sweep through dramatic landscapes, flying through the magical waters of Mount Cavora and soaring over the majestic Speedorz™ Arena of Chima in a high speed chase. The climax of the adventure comes as Laval and Cragger take to their Speedorz vehicles in a super-charged, super-fast race to capture a precious supply of CHI. Will good prevail or will evil win the day?

Not to be missed is MINILAND, featuring key landmarks from Manchester and the North West. Built from more than 1.5 million LEGO bricks, it brings the local area to miniature life with moving aircrafts and trains.

The Centre involves just one entry fee, with all attractions included in the cost. Tickets are available online from just £8.10 per person. Pre-booking is recommended for our best price guarantee and to ensure your entry. All pre booked tickets gain you priority entrance to the attraction.
