Calling All Young Padawans . . .


I can't tell you how excited my three padawans were when we were invited to come to a special media screening of the new LEGO Star Wars Miniland Model. This exhibit is a large-scale, interactive model, clearly made of LEGOs.



I have to admit that it was pretty impressive. The Millenium Falcon actually rises from the depths of the Tattoine. There are special features tucked away in nooks and crannies just waiting for the kids to find them. My oldest son was the most thrilled with the interactive game that allowed him to join in on the fascinating scene before him. (The only negative is that there is ONE and only ONE of these games in the entire building so when it's busy that's going to be a battle waiting to happen.)

This feature is only going to be at the Legoland Discovery Center in Grapevine for a limited time, so if you have kids who are as Star Wars nuts as mine are, you'll want to get out there soon.

You can use this link to get after 5 p.m. tickets for as low as $9.75. If you have toddlers (4 & under) you can go on Toddler Tuesdays where you pay $14 for a special package with one adult and two toddler tickets. Then any additional kids tickets (ages 5-12) are just $5 each. These Toddler Tuesdays are every third Tuesday of the month, entry available from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
