Manchester’s Legoland Discovery Centre has revealed its new look after a £1m refit that includes a Ninjago City Adventure play area, new café and a bigger Creative Workshop.

The attraction at The Trafford Centre has been updated with star turn being the new Ninjago area where kids can test their Ninja skills in the three-tiered play area.

Children can practise their Ninja moves in the Dojo Training Camp, play a dual-sided Batak game, test reaction skills in the Ninja Temple before taking on the climbing wall, maze and vertical rope climb.

Several attractions have been updated, including the Forrest Pursuit go-karting experience.

The new Creative Workshop features a bigger and brighter space for children to improve their building skills where they can get hands-on with Master Model Builder Alex Bidolak.

Alex will let kids – big and small – into his world as his ‘office’ has been moved and is in full view of the public. He is enthusiastic about his creations – he is to Lego what Willy Wonka is to chocolate.

Popular attractions including the three Lego rides (Kingdom Quest, Merlin’s Apprentice and Forrest Pursuit), City Builder and the 4D Cinema remain, while adults can join one of the monthly adult-only nights.

Other features remain – Mini World, the model-building area with thousands of Lego bricks and test areas.

Full details and prices can be found on the Legoland Discovery Centre website.
