The first 30,000 LEGO® bricks have arrived with a large LEGO® truck for the construction of LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Scheveningen. A number of children from the neighborhood came along, joined by Boet Hensen, Cluster General Manager of LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Scheveningen. They were joined by Councilor Boudewijn Revis and the group took a ‘dip’ in the impressive mountain of LEGO® bricks on the Scheveningen Boulevard.

The attraction in Scheveningen will have themed LEGO® play areas, a creative LEGO® classroom, a construction and testing area, a themed LEGO® ride, a 4D cinema and a MINILAND. There are also special rooms for parties and parties and there is a classroom for a special master class from a LEGO® Master Model Builder.

Finally, the attraction has a large LEGO® store on the boulevard. The unique LEGOLAND® Discovery Centres have been developed by Merlin Entertainments.
