LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Kansas City Breaks Ground on $1 Million Train Station Adventure

LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Kansas City announces the addition of a brand new, $1 million exhibit called Train Station Adventure, set to open late Spring 2017.

Replacing the current LEGO® City soft play area, Train Station Adventure allows kids to climb, slide, jump and roll around train obstacles and even take control in the conductor’s chair. Families can even use their imaginations to build their own LEGO® trains together and then test it on the tracks through the famous buildings of Kansas City.

To complete the new area, LEGOLAND Discovery Center Kansas City’s Master Model Builder, Joe Nunnink, is building a LEGO clock tower that will become the center piece of the attraction.

“Train Station Adventure further enhances LEGOLAND Discovery Center Kansas City’s mission to drive a child’s imagination and creativity,” said Nick Miller, General Manager of LEGOLAND Discovery Center Kansas City. “By adding this new feature inside our attraction, we are giving more opportunities for Kansas City families to learn and play together.”
