Kansas City, MO, USA — Merlin Entertainments has announced that online tickets are now available for LEGOLAND Discovery Center Kansas City and SEA LIFE Kansas City Aquarium.
LEGOLAND Discovery Center Kansas City is described as stepping into the biggest box of LEGO bricks in the world. The $15 million, 30,000-square-foot interactive attraction will feature a MINILAND® exhibit which recreates landmark buildings in Kansas City out of LEGO® bricks, hands-on play areas, a 4D Cinema, master classes from the LEGO Master Model Builder, LEGO rides, and special party rooms for birthdays and other celebrations. This highly interactive and educational 2-3 hour indoor experience is ideal for families with children between the ages of 3-10. LEGOLAND Discovery Center will open in May 2012.
SEA LIFE Kansas City Aquarium will take visitors on an enthralling 2-3 hour journey from the fresh waters of the Missouri River, into the mighty Mississippi River then out into the warm blue coral strewn waters of the Caribbean Sea, ending in the deep dark abyss of the Atlantic Ocean. Come nose to nose with sharks and prepare for astonishingly close views of everything from humble starfish and seahorses to graceful rays. In addition, a stunning centerpiece will be a huge tropical ocean tank with a walk-through underwater tunnel. SEA LIFE Aquarium will open in April 2012.
