A theme park built entirely around LEGO? There was no hesitation when I asked my kids if they wanted to go to LEGOLAND Discovery Center Dallas/Fort Worth in Grapevine, Texas. Moms, this place is not just for boys….every child (and a few dads..) of every age will have a blast here. Located in Grapevine Mills in Grapevine, Texas, LEGOLAND Discovery Center is very easy to get to.
LEGOLAND Discovery Center has some fun LEGO-themed rides. Battle evil skeletons and giant trolls from within your LEGO chariot in Kingdom Quest. Conjure magic by peddling around in Merlin’s Apprentice. And drive your own off-road vehicle in LEGO CITY: Forest Pursuit. We also enjoyed a fun 4D LEGO movie. It was my 3 year old’s first experience with 3D glasses, so I got a kick out of watching him grab at the objects coming toward him!
I am always amazed at what can be built out of LEGO Bricks. As a mom of boys, my LEGO creations never exceed more than a tower. LEGOLAND Discovery Center has some amazing LEGO Brick creations – a cement truck, a giraffe, and Dirk Nowitzki! But the most impressive display is seen in MINILAND. Every memorable landmark within the Dallas/Fort Worth area is created out of LEGO bricks.
This is where I wanted to stay – DFW International Airport, Texas Stadium, American Airlines Center, the beautiful skyline of Dallas – all seen in day time & night time modes. But the most impressive?? Southfork Ranch – cause you know it wouldn’t be complete without a nod to the famed TV show, Dallas.
LEGOLAND Discovery Center has two fun play areas for the kids – DUPLO Village for little ones and LEGO City for big kids – so make sure to bring a pair of socks to play here. And for the girls, Princess Palace is full of pink & purple bricks – perfect to make that fairytale castle. It also has a karaoke machine to rock out! And if you are hungry, there is a great Cafe featuring snacks and meals.
The only exit is out the LEGO Store – it’s a perfect place to grab a souvenir. We love the LEGO keychains – Harry Potter, Batman, Star Wars….pick your favorite character and chances are they have it.
We really enjoyed our time at LEGOLAND Discovery Center. If we lived closer, it would make a lot of sense to purchase the LDC Unlimited Pass. If not, make sure to grab your tickets online, as you can get a much better deal.
And while you are there, make sure to visit the Grapevine SEA LIFE Aquarium right next door. Makes for a really fun day!
