Tokyo Japan: Legoland Discovery Centre Review
LEGOLAND Discovery Centre is NOT LEGOLAND the Theme Park. We realised after visiting it that this is more suitable for younger kids (under 8 years old). Located , LEGOLAND Discovery Center is located in Deck’s Mall at the Odaiba area..
We arrived early to avoid the queue. In good old Legoland fashion, there were many lego bricks and lego creations greeted us throughout our visit at the Discovery Center. After getting our tickets, we took the elevator to the second level to start our tour.
The Lego Factory Tour was nice but hardly exciting. We moved in and went for a Ninjago Ride. No photography were allowed. Basically, it is a game ride where you shoot laser beams at evil while being transported from settings via your transport.
The highlight of this visit were the LEGO creations of the Tokyo skyline and iconic landscapes.
There are ongoing workshops that teach you how to build your own lego pieces but these were conducted in Japanese. So, we moved on.
LEGO 4D Cinema
We headed to the 4D Cinema to catch the show. It was like sitting through a wordless animation show. It was very tame and there was nothing to get excited about. We exited the 4D Cinema to find LEGO Friends waiting for us. My daughter of course was excited about her Lego Friends. What caught her attention was the karaoke set playing all her favourite songs from Lego Friends. There was also a Duplo City next to it.
My son lost interest quickly and left to more racier activities — building his own car at the LEGO® Racers: Build & Test station. The Japanese kids are quite adept at this and you can even see many fathers jumping into action to help their sons build their cars. There are race tracks of assorted difficulties to test your vehicles, so it was quite fun for the boys.
For the younger kids, there is also the LEGO Maze, the LEGO MINILAND® and the Merlin’s Apprentice Ride®.
Finally, we got to the Kingdom Quest Laser Ride® . My kids found it way too easy, so that was a bust too.
We decided to leave LEGOlandDiscovery Center as we found it too tame for our liking. The LEGO sets were also on the pricier side so we did not make any purchases. I did find a place where we got the same Lego sets at 20% cheaper. (Will link up as soon as I can).

seems like it is more suitable for younger children? still I guess it’s a nice experience to see the Legoland in Japan.
I love those lego creations of the city landscape. The ones in Legoland Malaysia are pretty impressive too!
We didn’t get to visit any Legoland Discovery Centre in our last trip to Japan. We saw it in Osaka too, next to the Aquarium. Will try to bring the kids next time. Thanks for sharing 😀
This place seems to be fun for Lego fans. Not sure whether older kids would enjoy it though.
My children would definitely love this place as they are big fans of Lego!
Haha.. You got me at the Lego sumo wrestling! I wanted to go in when we were at Odaiba 2 years back, but we had Legoland Malaysia Annual Passes then and hubby said it was a waste of money when we could just go Legoland Malaysia. DIFFERENT WHAT…. Malaysia one didn’t have karaoke and, well, Lego sumo wrestlers.
Oh this is good sharing! My girls love LEGO, one place to add to our must go places if we go to Japan.
I agree with you. We went to Legoland Discovery Centre in Atlanta and it was suitable for the younger kids. And I felt that the older ones (more than 7 years of age) would tend to “bully” the younger ones when they dominate the lego building areas (the ones with big foam blocks) because they will hog all the blocks to build big structures.
