Legoland Discovery Center:
Kansas City – Lucky Crown Center Scores Again!
Crown Center is the new hot spot in Kansas City. Recently, the Sea Life Aquarium project was announced, now we hear that Legoland Discovery Center is on the way. Interactional and educational, Legoland Discovery Center is scheduled to open in Kansas City in the summer of 2012. In addition to classes, birthday party rooms and a ride, there will be a 4-D movie screen and a café and shop. There also will be group and school programs to reach out to the 3-10 year olds that they hope to attract. The other stores and businesses in the Crown Center area are excited about the new $15 million infusion of fun and excitement that this new venture will bring with it.
Crown Center is either part of downtown, or the burgeoning Crossroads Arts Districts – just to the west, depending on who’s talking. Either way, it’s in a perfect location near everything exciting about Kansas City. If a tourist wanted to be in the hub of activity, a stay in either The Westin Hotel, or the Hyatt Regency Hotel for the weekend and you can just about walk to everything that you could want to do. Legoland Discovery Center is a skip, jump and hop away located in the Crown Center complex. As a matter of fact, through a couple of inside tunnels you could get from both hotels, Union Station and all of the attractions within, other Crown Center Shops (mall) without stepping foot outside. Or, if you choose to get out and about – ride away.
Here is what is a short car drive away, or quick walk. For a longer list of more area attractions, check KansasCitySouth.com:
