Legoland Discovery Center Tokyo Review


Legoland Discovery Center Tokyo
Last December, we spent a week In Tokyo. It was a week meant for the boys to indulge in fun. As LEGO is synonymous with FUN for the boys, it was no surprise that LEGOLAND Discovery Center was on our radar during our stay in Tokyo.

Legoland Discovery Center (LDC) is located at Decks Tokyo Beach located in Odaiba. When we told the wackies they are heading to LEGOLAND . They were expecting a large outdoor area filled with rides akin to LEGOLAND Malaysia. They were quite surprised when we bought them to a mall thinking it was another trick to get them to accompany their parents for shopping.Their doubts turn to relief when they spotted the entrance to LDC.

LEGO Factory Tour
You take a life up to LEGO factory to start the journey. It is a smallish area showing how LEGO bricks are made. There are a few stations for the boys to try their engineering skills. The area was explored in double quick time and they are off to the next spot.
Kingdom Quest Laser Rides

There are a few rides located within the premises. The rides are considered tamer than the outdoor versions and suitable for toddlers. The first ride we took is Kingdom Quest Laser Ride.
Kingdom Quest at Legoland
The ride began when we were sat in Chariots and armed with modern laser guns to zap trolls and skeletons. The quest was to save the princess. The queue was rather short and we managed to take it 2 times to save the princess once more.

It was Christmas season when we were there and it is good that the place was filled with Christmas Lego Figures to add to the festive cheer.

Miniland
Miniland Legoland Discovery Center
Made out of nearly 1.5 million bricks, the Miniland at LDC Tokyo is the place to be if you want to tour Tokyo in 10 minutes.

There are the iconic Shibuya Crossing, Tokyo Tower, Rainbow bridge , Sensoji and even a Sumo ring. Best of all, you get to see the glamor of Tokyo when night falls in Miniland.

Lego Master Builder Academy
Lego Master Builder Academy
There are lessons by the Master Builders who will share their secrets in creating awesome LEGO models. Unfortunately it was conducted in Japanese and we were kind of lost after 'Konichiwa' . Guess we might just have to rely on THE LEGO MOVIE on how to unlock creativity.
LEGO Fire Academy and Construction Site

This is probably the place the boys go wild in. There are 2 areas to play. The construction site for children 90cm and below and the Fire Academy for children up to 140 cm
Catch me if you can
Slides and soft building bricks make this the hottest spot for children in LDC.

For the younger ones, head to Duplo Village for their own Lego paradise. This space is best for age 3 and below. It comes with a brick pond, a soft bricks area and a slide.

Merlin Apprentice Ride

If you are like the Wackies, who are mini adrenaline junkies, you might want to take flight on Merlin Apprentice ride. You need to pedal to get up high, so make sure the adult accompanying you have enough energy to last the ride.A minimum height of 90cm applies, 90-120cm must ride with adults.

LEGO 4D Cinema
After an exhausting ride, we decided to take it easy and head down to LEGO 4D cinema to catch an episode of LEGO Legends of Chima.

The shows ran throughout the day. Do note that popcorn are not available for sale for this 15 minutes show.

After the show, it is time to build our own rides and race!
High slopes
The boys did something similar in Legoland Malaysia before.
Time to race
However this was better as it comes with a kickass ramp for their cars to zoom down. It was so cool that the boys demanded the same to be build at home. I could only say wait long long...
What a ramp!
Lego Friends
Our new girlfriends
Lastly the boys got to meet some new girlfriends at LEGOLAND. Relax lah, they are not allowed to date yet. However they did get to meet the LEGO Friends Stephanie, Andrea, Olivia , Mia and Emma in their new home.
