Beat the heat at the Legoland Discovery Center in Westchester New York

Looking for something to do to get out of the Heat this Summer and keep the kids busy? Why don’t you head on over to Legoland Discovery Center in Westchester New York!

1498182259937

Legos are a family staple… they’ve been around for generations and families enjoy using them together and will absolutely love checking out all of the amazing Lego creations that are all over at the Legoland Discovery Center. They truly are great for the whole family.

Take a look at the last time that I visited the Lego Discovery Center. We had a blast. My boys especially enjoyed the crawl tunnels that they have set up in the middle of all of the other areas. It reminds me of the old discovery zone in a way.

One of our other favorite things that we did during our visit was check out the 4-D show that they had. Every month or so the show rotates to a new one so it’s always a new fun experience for the family. If you’re unsure what 4D is, it is where you can feel, see, and even smell what’s going on in the short 15 minute movie. The great thing is once you’re inside, all of these attractions are included with your visit including the movie.

I do recommend that you eat prior to going to the Legoland Discovery Center because their food options are pretty limited especially for young children that are picky but there are sandwiches and some other options if you would like to eat there or have a snack.

There is a parking deck located only a block away from the Legoland Discovery Center and if I recall it was pretty cheap and for yhe entire day.

Not to mention that the area is great and it’s a great day out for the entire family. There’s an outside mall that you can walk around and window shop or grab an ice cream and just walk down the Main Street of the strip.

The Legoland Discovery Center has given me a family pack of 4 tickets to give away to one lucky winner.

Enter to win now through July 1st, GOOD LUCK!!!
