LEGOLAND Discovery Center
Merlin Entertainment / Blackstone






icon_STOP2023 - Lego Discovery Centre (Washington DC) - Planning - (6/26/22) I missed this before, but Merlin has teamed with PREIT to launch the first next-gen “Lego Discovery Centre” attraction in North America in 2023 at the Springfield Town Center mall in Washington DC. Beyond just a slight name change (the previous centers were called LEGOLAND Discovery Centers) the first Next-Gen site just opened in Brussels this month and feature a number of new interactive play experiences and different themed zones. The new DC area attraction is said to be home to “a new state-of-the-art Lego Space digital attraction” and be the 15th such attraction to open in North America.


 A LEGOLAND Discovery Center is a small indoor LEGO themed parks experience that typically feature a flat ride or two, a fun interactive dark ride, a 4D Theater as well as several interactive areas where kids can play hands on with LEGOs for hours on end.

    In 2023 there will be 15 North American locations:
Arizona (Phoenix)
Georgia (Atlanta)
California (Milpitas)
Illinois (Chicago)
Massachusetts (Boston)
Michigan (Auburn Hills)
Missouri (Kansas City)
New Jersey (inside American Dream)
New York (Westchester)
Ohio (Columbus)
Texas (2 Sites - Dallas/Fort Worth & San Antonio)
Pennsylvania (Philadelphia)
Washington DC (Coming in 2023 to Springfield Town Center)
Canada (Toronto)

    Click here for all the official information about the individual attractions, but be advised that their policy dictates that “Adults must be accompanied by a child to visit the LEGOLAND Discovery Center.” In other words, any adult who shows up to visit without a child, will not be permitted into the attraction.
