Over the summer break, the only thing ‘J’ wanted to do was head out to Legoland Discovery Center in Odaiba.
LDC- has a couple of rides, but it is more… of a…. discovery Center where there are a variety of activities.
Room 2, is the Kingdom Quest Ride- a ride where we had to shoot the ‘baddies’ with a laser gun for points. I managed knight status, J hunter status.
We whizzed through Mini World- an amazingly lifelike Tokyo built entirely out of Lego bricks. Having visited twice before, J knew exactly where he wanted to go! I find the city fascinating, so I dawdled a bit. They show it in day and night mode, and the lighting of Tokyo is SO realistic.
Just before you enter the main hall, there is an opportunity to sign up for the Creative Workshop. This is basically an opportunity for the children to build something following a set of instructions shown on a screen. J found it a touch slow, but he enjoyed it and was happy to receive a certificate and a copy of the instructions at the end.
This was a fun few hours for J and I. With the building fully air conditioned, it was a great escape from the summer heat!
Legoland is found in Decks, Odaiba and is easy to get to by train (2 minute walk from the Odaiba-Kaihin Koen station), or by car (there is a car park as part of the Decks complex and if you spent over ¥5000, you can get 4 hours free parking.
The opening hours are from 10am and ticket prices are from ¥2400.
