I never tell my kids where we’re going, I just tell them we’re going on a Mystery Ride and we go. Sometimes we go to Walmart, sometimes we go to Washington, DC. It’s a surprise every time. So, when the opportunity came up to go to the LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Boston for #LEGOStarWars #MINILAND Preview Event I was psyched. This was going to be a perfect Mystery Ride! With my oldest being almost 13, the age gap between him and the 9- & 8-year olds feels like dog years. It’s getting harder and harder to find Mystery Rides they will enjoy together but something like this was a no-brainer.

When they saw Gio, the giant Lego Giraffe, and realized they were going up to the Discovery Center, the excitement was palpable. Even the tweenager smiled. We found parking two blocks over that was free for the first 3 hours, made a mental note that there was an ice cream shop across the street and headed in for our adventure.

As we walked in we entered a mini-Boston, all created with Legos. I heard my kids (gasp!) TALKING to each other! They were pointing out all of the landmarks they recognized from the ride through Boston. “There’s the (Zakim) Bridge we drove over…and there’s a clone army on it!” “Hey, that’s the (TD Bank) Gahhden!” “I don’t know where that is, but look at the AT-AT!”

The Lego Star Wars Miniland ribbon cutting ceremony was so much fun. The characters were there and they interacted with the families for the duration of the event. Everyone had the opportunity to take pictures if they wanted…and who wouldn’t?!

The exhibit itself was incredible. It was comprised of scenes from Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. My children knew who the characters were and who won each battle. It was awesome. We walked through together and listened as the kids excitedly described the scenes that had been recreated with Legos.

The LEGOLAND Discovery Center is a hands-on experience for the whole family. The Duplo Farm is reserved for children ages 2-5 years old. It’s a perfect opportunity for them to explore. The area was clean, colorful and saturated with giggles and imagination.

There truly was something for everyone to do, including a 4D cinema. There were also interactive play spaces including: a Racer’s Build & Test area, 2 Lego Adventure themed rides, the Master Builder’s Academy, a lighthouse shaped, climbing, play zone, and an earthquake table.
