LEGOLAND Discovery Center Philadelphia

Posted on Friday, July 27, 2018
LEGOLAND Discovery Center Philadelphia offers 10 family fun LEGO themed Play Areas including the interactive train ride Imagination Express and LEGO Racers: Build & Test. 
Independence Hall - Legoland Discovery Center Philadelphia
Our favorite part of the LEGOLAND Discovery Center is its Miniland where you can see Philadelphia’s sites and attractions recreated in miniature using over 1.5 million Lego bricks.  Be sure to check out Independence Hall, City Hall, Philadelphia Museum of Art (and Rocky Steps), Lincoln Financial Field (home of the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles), the Philadelphia skyline, Masonic Temple, etc.
LEGOLAND Discovery Center Philadelphia is one of just 11 LEGOLAND Discovery Centers throughout the United States, and it is well worth the trip if you have kids between 3-12.  It is about 19 miles from where The Constitutional Walking Tour of Philadelphia operates it tours of Historic Philadelphia in Independence National Historical Park.

While at LEGOLAND in the Plymouth Meeting Mall, our family hopped aboard the Imagination Express interactive train ride, saw a 4D LEGO movie, ran through a LEGO Ninjago training camp laser maze, and jumped around in a pirate adventure island themed play area. 
LEGOLAND Discovery Center Philadelphia best suited for children 3-12 years of age, and it is designed with kids in mind – everything is kid sized.

LEGOLAND offers both free and structured play areas to help your children develop their imagination, spark their creativity, explore new ways of building, learn about building principles, develop grit by starting and finishing a complex project, and inspire them to tackle problem solving strategies through play with these cool activities:

Imagination Express 

Hop aboard.  Your family’s adventure departs from Brick Station. The Imagination Express is an interactive journey and game from a soapy bath all the way to outer space. As LEGOLAND says, “Make sense? It doesn’t need to… it’s all about imagination!” Note that children under 51 inches tall AND 4 years of age must have an adult ride next to them on the same bench on the Imagination Express.

LEGO Ninjago Training Camp

Help protect NINJAGO from its marauding enemies by tackling build challenge activities that work on your flexibility, agility and design skills.
Test your LEGO brick building skills on the cool NINJAGO reaction test! The ultimate test is the NINJAGO Laser Maze!

LEGO 4D Cinema

The amazing 4D Cinema allows you to feel as if you are joining your favorite LEGO characters on an action-packed adventure. There are very cool special effects including water, wind and fog that seemingly burst off the big screen.

Earthquake Tables

For the future engineer and the kid in all of us, this is so cool.  How tall can you build a LEGO tower of bricks? Put your skills to the test on the awesome Earthquake Tables. When the Earthquake Tables start to shake, you can see the strength of your brick tower and building skills.  

Pirate Adventure Island

Ahoy there mate. Yo ho ho!  Explore the LEGO-themed pirate ship. Climb the rigging, walk the plank and capture the flag! Explore using the air cannons to fight off enemy ships and amaze your mates, or escape down the slide to make it ashore to the island’s castle.

Lego Racers: Build & Test

Speed and racing are the name of the game in the Build and Test zone where kids are challenged to build a super fast LEGO racing car.  After the car is built, kids can test drive their creations on to the test track and ramps.  Kids can even time the speed on the test track and then can re-engineer how to make their LEGO cars go even faster.  Times are recorded to the hundredth of a second, which heats up the competition between your kids and you.  


Duplo Park is perfect for younger kids and builders to let their imaginations take them in any direction. You can build a flower for the Farmer’s Garden, climb and slide, or just play with the special large soft brocks.  

Build Challenge Circle

Say hi to Bertie, the LEGO mascot. Listen to a story from one of the LEGOLAND hosts, and then kids are inspired to build their own LEGO masterpieces.



The LEGOLAND gift store is packed with everything LEGO, including Marvel Super Heroes, Nexo Knights and Ninjago. It is a must see stop for a souvenir before departing LEGOLAND Discovery Center Philadelphia. Plus, don't miss some exclusive limited edition items and hard to find building sets too!

No Adults Without Children Policy

Insider Tips

Plan for about 2-3 hours of fun at the LEGOLAND Discovery Center Philadelphia which is designed for families with kids who are between about 3-12 years old. Arrive early on a weekday if you can.  We suggest that you start your adventure with the Imagination Express in order to avoid longer lines that often form throughout the day.
If you are interested in the Build Challenge area, make sure to check the stage for event times at the beginning of your visit and plan accordingly. And note that certain Build Challenge programs may be somewhat limited Monday - Friday.
Your family will work up quite an appetite at LEGOLAND.  But don’t worry - there are plenty of places to eat at LEGOLAND including at the LEGOLAND Coffee Shop & Café. Additionally, there are many other food options at the Plymouth Meeting Mall where LEGOLAND is located.  Plus, don’t miss the Island Carousel near the Food Court after your kids recharge.
