The 33,000 square-foot Discovery Center features ten LEGO Play Zones, including Imagination Express: An interactive LEGO ride shuttles visitors on an adventure that starts at Brick Station and goes from a soapy bath to outer space. LEGO 4-D Cinema: Guests are on the edge of their seats as a fantastic action-adventure unfolds in 3-D before their very eyes. The film comes to life in the fourth dimension as flurries of wind, rain, lightning, and even snow burst into the auditorium! The 4-D pre-show cinema movies wrap-up a great guest experience. LEGO RacersBuild & Test: Let your imagination take over as you build your vehicle and take it to the ramps. Evaluate your car, and see how you can make it go faster! Once you create the ultimate race car, speed on the test track. With times recorded to the hundredth of a second, it could be a close competition between you and your friends! LEGO® NINJAGO Training Camp: Train through interactive build challenge activities to improve your flexibility, agility, ingenuity, and LEGO brick building skills to help protect NINJAGO from its marauding enemies. Complete your training in the NINJAGO Laser Maze. Pirate Adventure Island: Go on a swashbuckling quest in the soft play area aboard a LEGO-themed pirate ship. Adventure through whimsical scenarios as you climb the rigging, walk the plank, capture the flag, or escape down the slide to make it ashore to the island’s castle.

LEGO® Friends: Tell a story with LEGO® Minifigures Andrea, Mia, Olivia, Stephanie, and Emma as you add your creations to the colorful LEGO® Heartlake City. Earthquake Tables: Visitors can build their own LEGO skyscrapers and see if their designs can survive the shaking earthquake-stimulating tables. DUPLO® Park: Little builders let their imaginations loose in DUPLO® Park. Build a colorful DUPLO flower for the farmer’s garden, climb up a small hill, slide down the other side, or play on our special big soft bricks. MINILAND®: See iconic Philadelphia landmarks recreated from 1.5 million LEGO bricks. Creative Workshop: Daily 25-minute workshops led by experienced LEGO builders demonstrate new building skills and ways for kids to express their imaginations with LEGO bricks. Build Challenge offers numerous experiences under its marvelous fabric canopy.
