LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Chicago unveils a newly redesigned Center giving the thousands of families who visit an even better brick experience. The renovation includes improvements to the Center’s highly popular play areas, cafe and all new model display areas, including LEGO® Star WarsTM Miniland – a large-scale, interactive LEGO model display chronicling the adventures of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.
As part of the new intergalactic exhibit, guests can help the Rebel Alliance destroy the Galactic Empire’s powerful Death Star, experience the epic duel between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader, watch in awe as the Millennium Falcon rises from the deserts of Tatooine, discover the bustling city of Mos Eisley, and take in the busy cantina where the band plays its familiar tune and dangerous characters lurk in dark corners. The display replaces the Center’s previous Star Wars Miniland, which featured scenes from Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace.
The first event taking place in the newly refurbished Center is LEGO® Star Wars™ Days, March 15-16, featuring special out-of-this-world activities, including:
- Build your own LEGO creation in Build and Test
- A meet and greet with members of the Star Wars 501st Legion
- Take photos with life-sized LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader and LEGO Star Wars R2-D2
- Win prizes and giveaways, while supplies last
