NEW LEGO Ninjago City Adventure at LEGOLAND Discovery Centre, Manchester

This Easter LEGO fans visiting Manchester have a treat as the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre at the Trafford Centre has had a £1m revamp. The entire centre has had a shake around and the soft play climbing frame 'Fire Academy' has been completely removed, making room for the huge LEGO Ninjago City Adventure.

I took you on a tour of LEGOLAND Discovery Centre last year, and a lot of the attractions remain the same. The visit will appear just as before until you've walked through Miniland, then you'd believe you were in a different place...

The 3D cinema is still to your right as you enter the main building, but beside it is the LEGO Ninjago City Adventure. It really is awesome.

There's a 'Treadwall' rotating climbing wall, a model Ninja Village that you can redesign by adding LEGO models, Ninja reflex training and the huge Ninjago Temple soft play climbing frame...

But most of all there's the immense soft play area with a pitch black slide, ball pit, lights, mirrors and loads more.... We were lucky enough to be invited along on when LEGOLAND Discovery Centre was closed to the general public, so my 8 year old was given a camera and let loose...

As well as the LEGO Ninjago City Adventure, the refit also includes more space for LEGO workshops, new party rooms and a much brighter area to sit and eat or have a drink.

And you can now see into the LEGO Master Model Builders office without having to sneak a peep!

In fact, on this occasion, we were even lucky enough to have a look inside the Master Model Builder's office - shown around by the lovely and incredibly keen Alex himself...

We had a really excellent evening and the boys have asked several times when we will be going back. It really is lovely to see so many new and exciting additions, the refit has delighted all of us and definitely increased the value of your day out.

Don't forget all of the other attractions that still remain - among them the Factory Tour Experience, 2 rides, the electric cars, LEGO pits, DUPLO area, the LEGO Speed Racers, earthquake table and the 4D Cinema showing the LEGO Movie 4D - A New Adventure and LEGO NEXO Knights 4D The Book Of Creativity.

LEGOLAND Discovery Centre tickets are currently £11.00 when you buy online in advance, and an individual annual pass is £39 per person. Find out more on the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre website.

We were invited along free of charge to review.


  1. This looks fantastic. I cannot wait to go here. Hope to visit over the summer. xx

  2. Ninjago is our favourite theme right now and Ez just lost his mind watching the walkthrough from the soft play, it looks amazing. Think we definitely need to plan a trip to Manchester this year now!

    1. Awww bless him! It is a bit special - my boys had an amazing time and are very keen to go back soon. The temple is truly an awesome sight, it's so hard to photograph, but very impressive :)
