Yonkers, NY, USA (December 6, 2012) Coming on the heels of one of the metropolitan area’s more unusual job interviews with its recent “Brick Factor” competition, LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Westchester, which opens at Ridge Hill in Yonkers March 2013, today announced the trio of executives leading the tri-area’s newest destination for children and families: General Manager Chris Mines, Marketing Manager Monique Perretti and Finance Manager Charles Graytok.
“Whether it’s a four-year-old building their first fort out of LEGO® DUPLO® bricks or an engineering-minded nine-year-old testing the strength of his or her just-built LEGO skyscraper on our Earthquake Tables, LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester will provide children and families with a unique and enriching experience that cultivates creativity in an exciting and safe environment,” said Mines.
Further details on the executive team follow:
“LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester will offer guests a unique experience, providing a fertile environment for creativity and discovery, where family fun and learning go hand in hand,” said Perretti. “I feel privileged to be part of providing a new interactive and educational destination as an option for children and families in the tri-state area.”
“It is a pleasure to be working with a brand that is dedicated to encouraging and providing a platform for children to explore and discover their creativity,” said Graytok. “We are working hard to ensure we provide an experience that families and children will cherish long after their initial visit.”
Recently, the attraction held a two-day competition called “Brick Factor,” pitting metro-area LEGO enthusiasts against one another in exciting and fast-paced building challenges against the backdrop of cheering spectators. The hands-on interview/competition resulted in Putnam County’s Michael Tocidlowski being named and hired as the LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester’s Master Model Builder, a full-time salaried position. In the position, Tocidlowski will be responsible for developing new features and exhibitions, building new models, as well as working with thousands of children and families expected to visit the attraction.
LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester is a $12 million, 32,300 square-foot indoor attraction featuring more than 3 million LEGO bricks, geared towards children ages 3-10 and their families. Its range of interactive attractions will include hands-on play areas, a 4D cinema, master classes led by Master Model Builders, two LEGO rides, special party rooms and MINILAND — the venue’s signature re-creation of landmark locations and buildings throughout Westchester County and New York City, made entirely out of LEGO bricks.
