Danielle Fuller says...

If you've got spare time, head to SEALIFE too, it's just over the road.

Team LDC Manchester with SEALIFE if you can, it’s worth doing both in a day if you have 2-3 hours spare as you get around them pretty quickly. They are both next to each other and it’s a great double day out.


Samantha says...

Early bird gets the worm!

Arrive for an early slot if you can and avoid the crowds.

In our own words...

Build memories brick by brick at the ultimate family day out

Ever wondered what 1.5 million LEGO® bricks looks like? Well, that’s the amount it took to build MINILAND, an interactive city that turns from day to night before your eyes.

Other hotspots here include the Kingdom Quest laser ride (rescuing a captured princess is the quest at hand) and The Merlin’s Apprentice Ride which whizzes kids round a spellbinding world. Launch yourself into orbit at the Space Mission Build Zone and face the elements (wind, rain and snow – all under one rood) in the 4D cinema experience.

Don’t leave without meeting the Master Model Builders, they’re the go-to for LEGO® building tips – or you could set them a challenge. Think of something difficult.

Adults must be accompanying a child (up to 17 years).
