On Memorial Day we had a chance to take the 20 minute ride from our place in the Bronx to Legoland Discovery Center in Westchester. With my 8 and 2 year old in tow, we were excited to see what the place had to offer for both age ranges. While I love the age difference between my girls and they have an amazing relationship- it can be a challenge to choose places to go that will be fun (and safe) for both of them.
After we arrived and went through the Factory Tour, we jumped on the Kingdom Quest ride. The girls loved the fun laser ride and it was something they both could do.
Miniland was also a hit since it is a replica of their home of NYC. Citi Field where daddy works, Empire State Building that they can see from their bedroom window, and other attractions throughout New York that the girls get to see everyday.
After spending quite some time at the Earthquake tables, the girls went on to do most everything else in the place. At one point Briana chose to go build and test a race car while Gia wanted to stay at the Earthquake table. Since the venue isn’t overwhelming, I was able to stay with Gia while Briana and daddy went to the ramps.
Since it was a hot day, after we left Legoland we drove another 25 minutes and spent the rest of the day at Croton Point Park beach. As we drove home, Briana exclaimed that this had been the best day ever. It’s not the first time she was proclaimed this, but when she does we know we did a good job at planning a fun day without going too far from home.
There are some great online ticket prices for Legoland that you can check out on at legolanddiscoverycenter.com. If you know you’re family will be visiting frequently, you can also purchase the Family Pass, which pays for itself after around 4 visits.
Don’t have any little ones but are big lego fans? There are adult nights too!
