Legoland Discovery Center in Atlanta

A friend in Macon told me he took his kids to Legoland one afternoon. It threw me off because I thought the closest Legoland was in Orlando. Turns out, they opened a “Legoland Discovery Center” at a mall in north Atlanta.

Trey had done pretty well the week before as I hobbled around on my new pair of crutches so we thought he deserved a special treat. We drove up to Atlanta and let him spend a whopping six hours running around the joint.

The highlight of the venue is the “4D” theater that rotates through three different films every 15 minutes. We watched all three and saw Trey’s favorite “Spell Breaker” two and a half times (1/2 due to a glitch in the projectors causing them to restart it).

Trey also attended a “Master Builder” workshop in which he got to build a space pod and then do a “show and tell” with the other kids. He really enjoyed doing that and got so excited showing off his creation that he smashed the teacher in the face. Thankfully, the guy laughed it off.

As for my impressions of the place, it’s a great spot for spending a long afternoon. The tickets are a bit pricey so next time only one of us will go with him. Plus, being so far away (87 miles each way), it isn’t something we’ll be doing often. We’ll probably plan our next visit around a time when we are up in Atlanta for something else.
