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.

Had a lot of fun, the kids had a ball. It's well run, having set times for admission keeps the lineups down. Loved the 4D movie, rides, and playground. Food isn't too expensive either. All in all, it's a good deal.

I have a developmentally delayed son who is also partially deaf and blind. We just returned from spending four hours and fifty minutes there. He had an absolute blast! The staff were particularly good. Shawn needed some significant extra assistance with the rides, displays, activities, etc., and at each station, the staff were amazingly polite, patient, and helpful. We would definitely return next time we were in Toronto. Thank you.

I honestly almost didn't come based on some of the awful reviews I read on here. Glad we came anyways!. My kids are 3, 7 and 10 and we have a fantastic time! Bought our tickets ahead of time and was there for when it first opened. Staff was friendly and polite for the most part. Barely any wait times for rides at the time we came. We really loved the 4D movies. Kids loved the climber. Yes it was expensive but not out of reason. I expect to pay those prices anywhere in TO. The only complaint was the cafe, took 25 min for a pizza. Mostlu because I think they weren't paying attention and gave my pizza away to another family and we had to wait for another one. Otherwise, we had a great time. Not sure if we will go back but still fun.

My kids liked it so much, we got the year pass for the whole family! We go at least once a month, and after about 3-4 times it gets worthwhile financially. Cafeteria is reasonably priced (+ discount for members), and the number of attractions guarantees there'll be lots to do for several visits. Lost one star for: * occasional overcrowding * one time when there was confusing opening hours info on their website, causing us to wait for an extra hour at Vaughan Mills till they opened.

My son (7yrs and 9 yrs) likes here. Good place to spend time with kids. 4D Movie theatre has 4-5 different kinds of movies. We watched two movies and floor was so slippery, my son(7yrs) fell off on the floor. And his clothes were wet and dirty. :(( I hoping that staff should mopping the floor regular basis. That will be good for young kids. Still I enjoyed movie. Cafe has good Kids meal deals. $5 including Choice of main : personal pizza or hot dog or chicken fingers. Drink : juice box, milk Two snack to pick from : Apple slice, cheese, yogurt, pudding and chips. I paid extra $45 per person and I bought Annual pass for my family. Thank you. :))😉
