When visiting the Toronto, one attraction that is definitely worth spending a day of quality family time at is the LEGOLAND Centre in the Vaughan Mills Mall.
This educational attraction teaches children of all ages. While enjoying a great time you become indoctrinated with information about many things such as learning more about Toronto when visiting one of the many features like MINILAND, an amazing replica of the city that even lights up to create an image of the beautiful metropolis at night. Spotting Toronto's landmarks will both entertain and educate. You and your children will enjoy learning to appreciate some of the challenges and hard situations that fireman are challenged with, while engaging in fun activities in the fire academy play area gym, or creating their own challenges by engineering from scratch a car, plane, or train and testing the speed on the test track where they can compete with others.
Some of the other amusements that are sure to delight those who take advantage of them are Merlin's Apprentice enchanted LEGO ride which takes you up toward the skies where you can see through the roof and find the stars, the 4D cinema, the Kingdom Quest Laser Ride and the LEGO Factory Tour where they well show you how plastic is metamorphosed into colourful LEGO bricks. There is a cafe and shop that carries the latest LEGO SPECIAL OFFERS every month. Another positive asset I feel worth mentioning is that all the attractions are conveniently located under one roof.
When purchasing tickets you have many options. Some of the choices offered are family passes, flexi tickets or annual passes. You can save money by ordering your tickets online, however please keep in mind that tickets must be purchased one or more days in advance for discount and entry to be guaranteed.
There is free admission for children under 2 years of age.
It is important to bear in mind that children 17 years old and under must be accompanied by an adult.
LEGOLAND also offers lots of enjoyment for those who are 18 years of age or older. There is an adult only night for grown-ups who wish to partake in a fun filled evening adventuring in building challenges, games, riddles and more. They even have prizes. However if you are an adult and you are going on any other night except adult only night. You must be accompanied by a child to enter LEGOLAND.
This attraction is a little harder to get to on the Toronto Transit System as it is about 32 km north from Downtown, but if you have kids and want to give them a real treat, you may want to make the journey. There is an Express Bus available from Yorkdale Station, but it only operates Monday to Friday. Click on the Directions Tab for more information.

How to get to Legoland Discovery Centre by Subway and YRT Express Bus
For this attraction we strongly recommend you try to make the trip on a weekday when the YRT VIVA 360 Vaughan Express Bus is running. It will take you right from Yorkdale Station to the mall in about 30 minutes. If you try to do the same trip on weekends you're looking at multiple buses and well over one hour to get there and that doesn't include your time on the subway. We have only provided directions based on the weekday option.
From Yorkdale Station take the Yorkdale Mall exit and make you way to the YRT stop #4601 located in front of the entrance to Holt Renfrew on Yorkdale Road. From there take the #360 Vaughan Express Bus. Important: This bus will require a separate fare as it operates outside of the TTC zone. Also, it only operates a limited number of trips each day. The last morning departure is at 9:11 am which would get you to the mall in time for the opening of Legoland. The next departure after that is not until 3:49pm which wouldn't give you much time since the last bus back to the subway departs at 6:35 pm. With careful planning, your trip should go smoothly. You can verify the schedule and fares at York Region Transit.

I don't know why I am bothering to review it as the only response you get from Legoland is a bunch of pre-written, complacent replies about how they are priced comparably to other attractions in the area etc. The difference is that the other attractions offer VALUE to EVERYONE for those prices. Legoland does not! I have been reading the replies about how it is designed as a "family experience" and the parents can enjoy the 4D theatre etc.but I can guarantee you no adult is going to feel like they got $24 worth of entertainment even if they use all the features and rides because it is a KIDS attraction. Parents are being gouged to supervise the kids. We came to Legoland with our adult friend because she was keen to see the kids for the day and when we got there I felt horrible that she had to pay $24 basically just to visit. She wanted to see the kids having fun and so she paid it but it was ridiculous. And then on top of that my husband and I paid our $24. So we had paid $72 just to supervise our two kids!!! This was after going online (So don't bother giving that pre-written lame reply either) and discovering that if you want to go in the morning (only time available for us as we were flying out of town that afternoon) it is just as expensive as if you walk up the same day to purchase your ticket. No discount at all. As for the kids, fine, the price was decent because my 6 year old LOVES Lego (although my 3-year old didn't get as much out of it) but charging adults full price to basically babysit their own kid is RIDICULOUS!

Our family with two adults and 6 & 9 yr olds had a great time here for over 3 hrs. It is well put together and we all found lots to enjoy. I liked the 4D theatre and miniworld best . My husband had fun building a race car for us to try. The kids loved the huge climbing fort and the rides. Tip for parents : take your own "passport" for the kids to collect stamps: they sell ones on lanyards for $5 but the parents end up toting them and the kids may lose interest anyway. Pretty expensive but glad we went. Could be better if they had a gallery wall displaying cool builds by local kids and grown-ups too that kept changing each month.
