Here’s a little bit of worldschooling word math for you. A family of 6 goes go The Lego Discovery Center and pays $22.95 each; and that’s with the discount. The baby is free. The experience is worth an approximate $10 value per child at best, and Mom and Dad should be free to sit around and wait for the kids to get bored. How much money did the Diapers On A Plane family throw away?

If I had time traveling capabilities, I’d go back in time to this moment and warn myself not to go.

The best thing about the Lego Discovery Center is that we came with friends. Friends that had long since moved away from our home base in Utah, and we missed terribly. Friends that helped pass the time while we tossed around some legos and chatted about what we’d been up to since the last time we talked; but we could have done that for free anywhere else. A park, outside on the street, at a stop sign, under the shade of a tree, not under the shade of a tree; all equally as interesting as the Lego Discovery Center.

Forever Friends! Check out her store Peach Marketplace!

The kids spent a long time building Lego race cars to test on the track; but they can do that for free at the Lego store.

Free activity we just spent a fortune on!

There is also a pretty fun movie starring Emmett, Wild Style and Risky Business; but that only takes 20 minutes out of the day. If we want to go back to the original math problem, that movie offered a $1 per minute value.

$22.95 dollar movie per kid, but Widmore got to pretend to hold hands with Emmett

The antics in the movie would have been awesome put into action in real life at The Lego Discovery Center. Considering how much a box of legos cost, it’s in the budget; for Lego execs it seems like there’s a way, just not the will.

How sweet are these girls playing together?

If you are going to have rides, don’t make us work for it. Merlin’s Magic bicycles need levers to reach the clouds, not pedals; I’m already too tired from counting out $114.75 for admission.

Most kids won’t be tall enough, or strong enough, to power the vehicles. That means you just signed up for an expensive gym, Mom!

There is also a gift shop, because you didn’t throw away enough money for your entrance tickets, and a cafeteria style food court that is closed during your visit; if you’re as lucky as we were.

Notice how the sail of the pirate ship is subliminally pointing towards the exit.

The ninjago area was actually pretty cool. I have nothing negative to say about that. The kids loved navigating the laser obstacle course and testing themselves on increasing difficulty levels.

For Kids: The Lego Discovery Center is geared towards smaller kids. Our twins, nearly eight years old, were at the top tier of children who would enjoy an activity like this. Eclair, at age 4, was mildly entertained. Molasses thought the colors were quite interesting. The value really peaked for the free baby.

Technically you aren’t supposed to cuddle with the animals but I paid $22.95 admission; I can do what I want.

If you are considering a trip to the Lego Discovery Center with kids in Atlanta, we would recommend the Georgia Aquarium (coming soon), or a tour of the iconic Fox Theatre for only a few bucks more instead. You’ll have more fun playing with these  LEGO Mythical Creatures at home.

Not the real Fox Theatre, but these lego models were cool
