Buckhead, one of Atlanta’s ritziest neighborhoods, is now home to more than just great shopping and dining opportunities since LEGOLAND Discovery Center opened in 2011. This children’s playland is a world of color, creativity and fun for children aged 3-10. They offer a wealth of attractions, two rides, 4D cinema and more. Housed on the top floor of Phipps Plaza, LEGOLAND Discovery Center is a great place to beat the rain or the heat or just help kids engage their creative side. They also have a cafe with kid-friendly fare at reasonable prices so consider staying for lunch or dinner to extend your LEGOLAND fun!
Unless on specific adult-only nights, all adults must be accompanied by a child to enter LEGOLAND Discovery Center for security reasons. While some families like to spend all day here, a typical visit takes 2-3 hours. The fantastic hands-on experience includes Atlanta attractions made from LEGO in MINILAND, LEGO racers: Build and Test, LEGO Fire Academy jungle gym, LEGO Friends Olivia’s House, and Duplo Village for the little ones.
