LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Yonkers
Since it's opening, Westchester residents have always loved Ridge Hill's LEGOLAND Discovery Center. It's been one of those places that always has a great crowd, great entertainment and fun for children and parents alike. A sure standout spot at Ridge Hill.
Last week was the opening weekend of the new Legends of CHIMA. As we entered the facility, we were greeted by Laval, the Lion Price. He is the character from the movie that is new to the Cartoon Network. The premise of the show is that groups of animals fight to get the Chi and once they have it, it gives them special powers. Apparently Laval is the prince of his group and he was once on the other side, making him a very important character.
The 12 min film showed over and over so that everyone would have a chance to see it and of course the toys are available for purchase. The film is 4D (warning) so prepare to be surprised by some special effects while in your seat! A little scary for my 3 year old at first, but he quickly yelled out "again" once he realized it was part of the show.
For those who have never been, or might not be interested in the movie, the NYC area called MINILAND is worth seeing. Caught lots of dads and grandpas inside enjoying the sights of NYC made of all lego items. The Statue of Liberty, Yankee Stadium and the Empire State Building to name a few. The surprise fireworks display was a nice treat too!
