The unique, indoor attraction featuring over two million LEGO bricks opened in the Trafford Centre's Barton Square on Monday. Perfect for children aged three to 12 years, the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre is like jumping into a giant box of LEGO bricks.

The Centre is made up of a series of interactive features to immerse kids into a world where their imagination can run wild with creative inspiration at every turn. Featuring a whole host of exciting attractions from the LEGO City: Fire Academy to an amazing recreation of the North West's most iconic buildings, the Centre not only provides fun for LEGO fans young and old, but offers fantastic educational benefits too.

On entering the Centre, children are taken on a LEGO Factory tour, which reveals the secrets of how the famous bricks are made. Some components of the machinery are missing and require help of the children to create new LEGO bricks.

A fantastic MINILAND includes all of the iconic landmarks from the north of England including The Trafford Centre, Blackpool Illuminations, Peak District and the world famous Coronation Street cobbles. Visitors are encouraged to make their own versions of MINILAND, which can even be tested on an earthquake machine to see how their structure would stand up if an earthquake was to suddenly strike in Manchester! Kingdom Quest, an interactive LEGO laser ride, offers the chance for kids to battle with trolls and skeletons to free the beautiful princess or they can feel part of the story in LEGO Studios - the 4D cinema where the wind will rushes around their feet and LEGO bricks fly around towards their heads.

The Master Model Builder, interviewed for the job by children from Manchester, is on hand to teach all visitors top tips on to how to build the best models. Celebrations are also made even more memorable in one of the special party rooms, which can be personally themed to create the ultimate birthday party celebration!

Other features of the attraction include a LEGO Racers build and test track, LEGO Belville area - a DUPLO Village featuring a soft play section, plus a café to ensure your batteries remain fully charged, and a shop featuring a fantastic range of LEGO products.

Neil Crittenden, General Manager of the LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Manchester said:
"The Manchester LEGOLAND Discovery Centre is the first in the UK, so we have teamed up with a location that could support this attraction. The Trafford Centre offers the perfect combination of leisure, dining and shopping in a one-stop experience, ideal for families. With a footfall already of 35 million, it would take something very special to increase this, but we are sure our fun, interactive attractions will offer yet another reason for more families to visit the Trafford Centre, providing fun for LEGO fans young and old and be the place to visit in 2010."

The Centre involves just one entry fee, with all attractions included in the cost. Tickets for the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre will cost from £11.85 for adults and £9.30 for children when pre-booked in advance at

The Centre is open from 10am seven days a week. The last admission is 5pm, with the shop remaining open until 7pm.
