New Forest Pursuit opens at LEGOLAND
Mancunian boys Jared and Reuben were given a dream come true chance to drive two LEGO® jeeps to their new home in the LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre in Manchester's Trafford Centre.
The boys, who travelled through the shopping mall to Barton Square where the attraction is situated, made a quick stop to test the jeeps' off-road capacities in the forest and even surprised a few early morning commuters!
The LEGO vehicles are part of the attraction's new LEGO City Forest Pursuit driving adventure ride which opened on Saturday, 24 March.
This most exciting new feature will introduce a driving adventure to the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre. Children will take to the forest pathways in their own off-road LEGO vehicles to chase the robbers who have escaped with loot from the City!
Located in Barton Square at The Trafford Centre, the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre is made up of a series of interactive features to immerse kids into a world where their imagination can run wild with creative inspiration at every turn.
Featuring a whole host of exciting attractions from the Kingdom Quest ride to an amazing recreation of the North West’s most iconic buildings, the Centre not only provides fun for LEGO fans young and old, but fantastic educational benefits too.
MINILAND, built from more than 1.5 million LEGO bricks, brings the local area to miniature life with moving airships and trains.
The Centre involves just one entry fee, with all attractions included in the cost. Tickets are available online from just £8.10 per person.
The Centre is open from 10am seven days a week. The Centre remains open until 7pm daily, with the last admission at 5pm –
