Slideshow: awesome Toronto landmarks made of Lego at the Legoland Discovery Centre

GALLERY: Legoland

The Legoland Discovery Centre inside Vaughan Mills Shopping Centre opens Friday, providing a condensed, indoor version of a Legoland theme park. The 34,000-square-foot space contains several giant Lego people, rides for the under-10 demographic, a 4D movie theatre (the extra “dimension” is wind and rain) and many opportunities to create your own Lego masterpiece. The coolest feature by far is the Lego Miniland, a moving, blinking miniature landscape made of 1.5 million Lego bricks, recreating landmarks like City Hall, the Air Canada Centre, Yonge-Dundas Square and even Niagara Falls—water included.

    Toronto Lego Miniland is a waste of money (very expensive) for what they offer, if your children are older than 9 years, they will be completely bored. They are charging the parents too much money $22 + Taxes for babysitting their own children, imagine that.

    Even worse, they assume adults unaccompanied by children are sexual predators and ban them (save for once a month “adult” nights). You can walk in husband and pregnant wife or father and adult daughter, and they view you as a potential threat to the children. You need to dig into their web site to see the one small note about this ban. Nothing about it on their brochures or publicity material. I don’t know how many adult fans of Lego have been turned away by this policy, having made a completely wasted trip. Shocking, too, it’s in Vaughan Mills mall. You’d think they would have a tenant policy requiring open, discrimination free admission.
