Tokyo Lego Discovery Rocks!

On Saturday we went to the Lego Discovery Centre in Tokyo and met up with our friends, we had a great day and we all loved the discovery centre.
The first part is a short history of Lego and explanation with hands on parts on how it is made. After that is a ride where you have to shoot skeletons and trolls to free the princess, the boys loved this ride and I think we ended up going on 4 or 5 times!

After the ride, there is the room with models of buildings in Tokyo, including the Sumo dojo and you can make the skinny sumo wrestlers actually fight.

I didn't take photos of everything, there was a jungle gym type of place for the kids to burn off some energy and an AMAZING movie theatre, I won't spoil what happens in there but it was brilliant. There was also another ride that they boys went on alone. 

The boys got totally engrossed in the make it and test it room, there were lots of tubs of Lego and then a variety of ramps so you can race or test how well your vehicle works.

The only disappointing part was the cafe, there was very little choice, a few sandwiches and a couple of not very enticing bento's and you are not allowed to take your own food in. That said, I saw more than one person with a big McDonalds bag in there.

They have classes with 'Master Builders', you need to book a time slot then the master builder shows you how to make whatever it is - this was the parrot class.

We were in there for over 5 hours and could have easily stayed longer. Of course, when you leave you have to go through the shop. Ebi-kun had some birthday money so he got himself some more ninjago Lego. We will definitely be going back but it takes us about 1hr 30mins to get there which is a shame. If we lived closer we would get a yearly pass. 

Are your kids Lego fans? We love it !
