Starting this Saturday the Discovery Center will take you back with LEGO Castle Adventure.  You and your family will travel back in time and become LEGO castle builders.  You can try your hand at planning, constructing and building your castle with LEGOS.

You'll enter the LEGO kingdom’s royal castle to sit in the majesties’ thrones and view the royal family’s portrait – made out of LEGO bricks – and LEGO suit of armor. View the king’s secret treasure room filled with LEGO jewels.

Plus you will find age appropriate building areas from toddlers to 7 and older.

Not only will you be able to experience the building of the castles, the kids can dress as princes, princesses, knights or dragons; build a LEGO brick topiary; or climb a lookout tower. Plus, ride your might steed on the safe jousting field.  But watch out you just might run into the mighty LEGO dragon.  Don't worry from what I hear, she won't bite.she doesn’t bite!
