- Explore MINILAND, which was just named Atlanta Magazine’s Best of Atlanta – Mini City, where exclusive holiday builds are featured throughout
This is LEGO Discovery Center Atlanta’s first holiday event since the attraction’s grand reopening in March 2023. Following a $5 million investment, the next-gen attraction and Certified Autism Center (CAC) boasts 35,000 square feet of indoor fun, rain or shine, and allows guests to experience family learning through play activities within ten zones, including building adventures, an interactive ride, 4-D theatre and more!
This episode of Around Atlanta was originally recorded on 12/29/2016. On this week’s Around Atlanta edition of the Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio show, co-hosts Carol Morgan and Todd Schnick are joined by Betsy Whitehead to discuss the adventures to be discovered year-round at Legoland Discovery Center Atlanta.
Betsy Whitehead is the new Sales and Marketing Coordinator with Legoland Discovery Center Atlanta. She was born in Florida, but considers herself a Georgia native. With a degree in integrated studies combining business management and communications, her skill set includes the understanding of business fundamentals, as well as incorporating originality and imagination into everyday tasks.
According to Whitehead, Legoland Discovery Center is focused on creative learning. “It’s like jumping into the biggest box of Lego bricks ever,” said Whitehead. “We are literally the ultimate indoor playground.”
One of the best features of Legoland Discovery Center Atlanta is that the fun is meant for all ages. With fifteen attractions, two rides, a 4D cinema and the new exhibit, Pirate Adventure Island, there’s something for everyone. Even adults have their own special night! Every third Thursday of the month (the next one will be January 19) from 7 to 9 p.m., adults are encouraged to come to Legoland for a themed party, building competitions, trivia and more.
Pirate Adventure Island is a hands-on sensory attraction that includes a water table with three lanes to build boats then send them off for a race. Also featured within the exhibit is a popular three-story play area with a slide and bridge that crosses over to a pirate ship. Underneath the play area is a treasure chest where participants can go on an all-inclusive treasure hunt. A volcano table and seating areas are available for kids and parents who need a break from the battles. For a more realistic feel and look, the entire attraction is themed with graphics and pirate Lego pieces hanging from the walls.
LEGO© Discovery Center Atlanta is a year-round destination with endless indoor activities. However, around the holidays, the notorious building attraction is the perfect stop for kids who want to celebrate New Year’s without staying up all night. An annual activity (that sells out fast) is the Noon Year’s Eve Party. Enter Legoland at 10 a.m. for several activities, prizes, goodie bags and a huge balloon drop at the strike of noon. Attendees are encouraged to buy tickets online for guaranteed spots and savings.
