Legoland Discovery Centre Manchester

You may have seen recent review of Sealife Manchester, on the same day we took a trip to Legoland Discovery Centre. Based in the Trafford Centre its the perfect place for any Lego fan, bog or small. We were greeted with a really long que, but its a really popular attraction so its to be expected. You can hop into the shorter que if you have pre booked your tickets. We arrived at 11am and people who were hadn't pre booked could book into slots from 1.30pm and onwards, so I would definitely recommend pre booking. The ticket prices start from £9.95 and you have the option to buy a combi ticket allowing you access into Sealife to.
We only qued for 10 minutes in the pre booked tickets line, and chopped straight up in the loft to the first part of the attraction. The Lego factory is where the children get to lsiten to how a pice of LEGO is made and get ot help out with the creation. Once they learn about the process they get to take away their own piece of Lego.
We left the factory and headed to the next attraction which is the Kingdom Quest, we hopped aboard the ride and our mission was to save the princess. There are lasers for each rider and the one who gets the most points wins. It was Mr D is our car declared the winner for his shooting skills.
Next up was miniland and all the fab mini Lego models, Mr D loved seeing building he was familiar with in Lego form. I loved the moving Oblivion ride, the Blackpool Tower and the Etihad Stadium. There is lots of opportunities for interaction to as some of the model move and light up, the whole rooms changes from day to night to.
When you leave Mini Land you are then in the main area of the whole attraction where you can spend as little or as much time as you like. There is the Forest Pursuit where the children can ride in a Lego car round the forest track. The build and test area where you can build your own car and race it down all the slopes and ramps. The big soft play in the centre which the boys loved, perfect for running of some steam before lunch. The favourite for my boys was the 4d theatre which shows a film every 20 minutes.
There is also another ride the Merlins Apprentice which the boys loved and went on 3 times in a row! There is the Duplo Farm for the little ones, Olivias house for the girls and even a Lego building master class if you fancy it. You can make it a full day trip if you choose to eat at the cafe. We had seen everything we wanted and headed to the exit sign only to be met with another area, the Star Wars Miniland model display.
The boys also had a go of the Ninjago laser training camp ,where you have to try and get through the laser without breaking them. it was great fun we all had a go!
 We all had a great day and will definitey be taking anoter trip soon, You can see all the pictures from our trip in my google plus album.
