LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Toronto's MINILAND also features several different interactive activities for guests to participate in, including:

  • An interactive building site where the guests can move a crane to lift and move LEGO bricks into place, and a jackhammer which they can use on the ground.

  • Interactive building podium - children construct something out of LEGO bricks that will be placed into MINILAND - make your mark on Mini-Toronto!
