Love LEGO? Love playing? Love rides? Have you not been to LEGOLAND Discovery Center Chicago yet!

LEGOLAND Discovery Center Chicago is a HUGE indoor play center great for those inquisitive minds and playful bodies. It will literally feel like you have just discovered the world's biggest box of LEGO bricks! In fact, there are over 3 million bricks in the center, so there certainly is plenty to discover!

There are nine great attractions in LEGOLAND Discovery Center that will each bring you something different and creative.  Kids can enjoy some hands-on sensory play in the swashbuckling Pirate Adventure Island, where they can discover a crystal cave, and hidden sea creatures.

They can even set off air cannons and take enemy ships by surprise!

Have you ever seen a whole mini city built out of LEGO? Miniland Chicago has all the famous landmarks and is amazing how detailed it is!

From the city to the jungle, where kids can come face to face with giant life-size jungle animals, from monkeys, hippos and tigers...all made form LEGO of course!  The whole family can get armed with a zapper and try and complete the Kingdom Quest Laser Ride, and you can even learn all about how LEGO bricks are made on the fun factory tour - and you get to have your very own souvenir brick to take home!

A 4D cinema, master builder academy and even building and testing your own LEGO racer...we told you there was HEAPS to do at LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Chicago!

    It's a good place for a new experience for kids! The price isn't too bad and the place is pretty much what I had expected. It's an attraction..... One that expects a place to spend the day is expecting too much. Past reviewers appearently thought it was more of an Amusement Park.

    I completely agree that it's not worth a 5 hour drive. However driving 45min didn't bother me one bit!

    Needs new management. Way overpriced. Unprofessional, mostly rude staff, Poorly ran, dirty, basically a germ fest, couple very brief rides, and lots of disorganized lego blocks all over the floor. Kids get bored very quickly, there isn't much to do. Waste of time n money.

    I wish I read all the negative reviews before going to this place. They are right.

    Everything is overpriced for what you get. Luckily we have two children under the age of three, so me and my wife paid $33 dollars, What did we get for that price: three exhibits and one carnival ride on the first floor, and a playground and carnival ride on the second floor. In fact, you could do all of Lego Land in an hour and half (less if it wasn't so crowded).

    Speaking of crowds, I hope you do not mind them because there are plenty of people regardless on what...Read More

    Agree with the negative reviewers. Way over priced !!!
    Only one person was managing the crowd to the mini theatre and lego factory,
    seems like a way to build crowd and also to save money.
    Not even enough small wheels at build and race center.

    Better to buy a lego toy and play at home.

    Very overpriced for what you receive. At the door the entry fee is $18 for anyone 3+, if you purchase them on line it is $16. They do have a special line for people who purchased their tickets on line however; it did not make any difference. In our case we were the only ones in the on line purchase line, but they cleared the walk up line first. There is an additional fee of $5.00 per person if you want to do the scavenger hunt. The Discovery Center is very small. You wait in lines for the attractions longer than the actual attraction. If you...Read More

Speaking of crowds, I hope you do not mind them because there are plenty of people regardless on what day you go. We wen't on a Tuesday hoping it would be dead, but were wrong. The paths between exhibits are very narrow on the first floor. Prepare to be waiting for other people to get out of your way half the time.

For lunch we paid $8 per soggy sandwich. That does not include a drink or chips. Your family would get more enjoyment going to one of the Children's Museums than this place. I recommend the one in Oaklawn, IL.

Definitely over-rated and not worth the price to get in. .

The Discovery Center is very small. You wait in lines for the attractions longer than the actual attraction. If you did not have to wait in the lines you could probably get through the entire place in less than 45 minutes. This is definitely not the location that you are going to spend all day or even a half day. A kid’s lunch is $10 and includes a half of plastic wrapped sandwich, water or juice/drink box and a cookie. Find coupons if you are going to go. I feel the entry price should have been around $5.00 per person. My grandson who is 5 found playing with the legos was the best part, but we could have done that at home for free.
