KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- On Sunday, hundreds of kids and kids at heart attended the grand opening of LEGOLAND at Crown Center. Buddy the Lego mascot was the first to let children in the doors.
They entered to the beat of the Marching Cobras and the anticipation was almost palpable. Buddy demolished a wall of giant Legos and excited children poured into the exhibit for the first time.
Wide eyed Michael and Matthew Domino got off the elevator and sped into the room of their dreams. It was a draw-dropping site they had been waiting for. The brothers couldn't believe the replica of the Kansas Speedway. They raced around the track and took a ride on the Kingdom Quest. Once on board, the kids used laser guns to zap their Lego enemies to bits.
"I shot targets and trolls and rocks and small people," said Michael Domino.
If you prefer something a little faster, there is the Lego build and race area.
"I try to even it all so it's not bending so it rolls and stuff," said visitor Steven Williams.
They even have a 4D movie theater where kids feel things like wind and rain and snow. They love it! The kids spent hours inside the Lego Heaven.
