Explore and play with our interactive models of San Antonio-area landmarks; see boats race and towers glow as the little land changes from day to night. Our mischievous Minifigures love hiding in MINILAND – who will you spot?

Creative Workshop

Our Master Model Builder can create ANYTHING from LEGO bricks. Catch one of our special workshops hosted by our Master Model Builder and LEGO Building Experts throughout the day to discover insider tips and super tricks on building with LEGO bricks. Workshops start at 11:00am every day! Workshop times may be subject to change depending on how many people we have in the class!

LEGO City Play Zone

Jump into our indoor play zone - LEGO® Construction Site. Side by side with climbing walls, slides and a jungle gym, our LEGO Construction Site play zone is perfect for construction workers in training to burn off some of their energy while adults rest, or carry on building with LEGO bricks!

Don't forget your socks! Socks are required to play in this area.

LEGO Racers: Build & Test

Create an ultra-fast LEGO racing car at our Build & Test zone. Race your vehicle on the test track for the quickest time – will your car zoom across the finishing line first? Ready. Set. GO!

DUPLO Farm

Little builders can let their imaginations loose in our DUPLO Farm.

Build a colorful DUPLO flower for the farmer's garden, or wiggle and slide around the barn and our special, big, soft bricks. Don’t forget to say "hi" to the barnyard cow: moooo!

Earthquake Tables

DUPLO Village

Little builders can let their imaginations loose in our animal-themed DUPLO Village. Build a colourful DUPLO flower for the garden, or wiggle and slide around the cottage and our special, big, soft bricks. Which animals will you spot?

Cafe

Builders of all ages can take a break in our Café. Tuck into a tasty sandwich or salad, unwind with a hot coffee, or indulge in a sweet treat! Take a break from building amazing LEGO® creations, racing LEGO® cars and pedaling fast on Merlin’s Apprentice and relax in our colorful Café area.

Please note to ensure the health and safety for all of our guests we do not permit outside food.

The Great LEGO Race VR Experience

Get ready for The Great LEGO® Race VR Experience, a virtual reality experience where we invite you to literally buckle up and go for a ride inside the most incredible, exhilarating and fun LEGO® race ever created! Immerse yourselves in a LEGO® world racing brick-built vehicles in the hopes of becoming the next Champion!

Racers will enter the virtual world and be the star of a rollicking race against several LEGO® MINIFIGURE competitors including a pirate, wizard, surfer and pharaoh. With twists and turns throughout the course, the experience engages all senses by combining sight, sound and motion to allow guests to escape reality. The 360-video let’s guests see all around them as they venture across a rocky mountain, rolling river and even hot lava! Each experience can lead to a new discovery like realizing you’re racing against a LEGO-build rocket-powered windsurfing rig and an ornately canopied bed (called a “litter”) carried by mummy servants. Who will win is the biggest question and the only way to find out is to step into The Great LEGO® Race VR Experience.

Notes

  • Adults are not allowed to enter alone unless accompanied by a child younger than 18, with the exception of special Adult Nights.
  • San Antonio is the third-smallest metropolitan area in the world to have its own LEGOLAND Discovery Center (the other two are also in the USA), but it is the only one to be in a state with a much larger city that also has its own Discovery Center. It is the second in Texas to have one.
