Legoland to Open Friday at Great Lakes Crossing


Legoland Discovery Center Michigan will open to the public on Friday at Great Lakes Crossing in Auburn Hills.

The attraction will be a 32,000-square-foot indoor center, featuring millions of Lego bricks and themed exhibits including a 4-D cinema, two interactive rides, large soft play areas, and much more.

Legoland features 10 interactive play zones:

  • Kingdom Quest: An interactive laser ride where visitors will journey into the depths of a medieval castle and zap various targets to help save the princess.
  • Lego Racers: Build & Test Zone: Visitors can build their own racing car and time their creations on the speed test track.
  • Lego Studios – 4-D Cinema: Guests will be on the edge of their seats as an incredible action adventure unfolds in 3-D before their very eyes. The film comes to life in the fourth dimension as flurries of wind, rain, lightening and even snow burst into the auditorium.
  • Miniland: The venue’s signature re-creation of landmark locations and buildings throughout Metro Detroit, made entirely out of Lego bricks. Miniland was built out of more than 1 million bricks.
  • DUPLO Farm: Large Lego DUPLO bricks are made for small children with big imaginations and the DUPLO farm is a great place for the younger members of the family.
  • Earthquake Tables: Visitors can build their own Lego skyscrapers and see if it can survive the shaking earthquake stimulating tables.
  • Lego City: Soft play area for kids themed as a Fire Academy and Police Station.
  • Creative Workshop: Throughout the day, guests can learn from our master builders through creative workshops. Each workshop lasts approximately 25 minutes and teaches a new LEGO building skill.

Legoland will also feature  a miniature Lego brick landscape of local buildings, attractions, and other notable landmarks — inspired by the metro Detroit region’s sights and culture. It will include miniature versions of the Renaissance Center, Spirit of Detroit, Belle Isle, Motown Museum, Fox theater, Guardian Building, Comerica Park, Uniroyal Tire, Michigan Central Station, the Heidelberg Project, and more.
