Are We There Yet – Must-see Travel Destinations

It’s spring – that means it’s time to get in touch with your inner ninja. That’s right. The Legoland® Discovery Centre in Vaughan (inside the Vaughan Mills Outlet Mall) has added a Ninjago Training Camp in honour of the movie. Crawl through a laser maze or perfect high kicks against the training wall.

Once a year, this Legoland Discovery Centre – the only one in Canada – changes up an exhibit. In March, Lego Batman himself celebrated Batman the Movie with a special appearance.

Here’s what stays year round: • A simplified version of Lego   manufacturing where you can   find out your height and weight   in Legos • Four 12-minute 4D (3D plus   temperature changes) films • Amusement park-style flying on   Merlin’s Ride and laser shooting   on the Kingdom Quest train

They’re all included in the price of admission ($22 at the door or $15 online).

Of course, building is what Lego is really about. Settle down at activity stations and snap together a tower to test against earthquakes or build a racecar to test on ramps dominating the floor. Little ones get busy at the Duplo bins clutching big pieces designed for little hands.

This place buys one parent about three hours of shopping time while the other helps build colourful plastic dreams with the kids. (www. toronto.legolanddiscoverycentre.ca)
