The LEGO Experience Centre will finally open its doors to the general public at Docks Bruxsel on June 24, reports Bruzz. Children and their families will be welcome to play together in the brand new Brussels hotspot, where LEGO is of course the main attraction.

The Lego Discovery Centre (LDC) will be over 3,000m² in size and will be the first ever next generation LDC in the world. Guests can make their way through 12 zones; from construction adventures to interactive rides. There will also be a DUPLO park for younger children, 4D cinema and LEGO Café, among other things.

Commenting on the choice of Brussels, Justin Platt, chief strategy officer at Merlin Entertainments, the operator of the LDC, said: "As one of the most exciting and densely populated cities, where many families live, the European capital is the ideal place to give consumers the opportunity to indulge in their passion for LEGO."

A month ago, Sieber Burteel from Lubbeek won the title of Master Model Builder, becoming the first master Lego model builder in Belgium and the face of the new centre in Brussels. He will be on hand to guide thousands of children around the new LDC and will participate in its numerous planned workshops. Burteel is not the only one who will pursue his dream job at the new experience centre. Eventually, 40 to 45 people will be employed.

To manage the capacity in the new LEGO Discovery Centre, reserved online time slots are used, so everyone can get the opportunity to enjoy an unforgettable visit. Ticket sales began on 5 May via the Lego Discovery Centre website.
