by Samantha Davis-Friedman

Ahead of its grand opening on June 14, 2021, Legoland Discovery Center Bay Area at Great Mall in Milpitas, Calif. — the first Legoland Discovery Center in California — unveiled Miniland, a miniature replica of the San Francisco Bay Area’s most iconic landmarks built from more than 1.5 million Lego bricks.

Miniland at Legoland Discovery Center Bay Area took a team of 45 Lego model builders, nine Lego designers, and four technicians more than  7,150 hours to build. The nearly 40 Lego builds represent the entire San Francisco Bay Area, including the Golden Gate Bridge, the Painted Ladies, and the Transamerica Pyramid in San Francisco; Apple Park, the Basilica of San Joseph, and Hoover Tower in the South Bay; and the Cathedral Building, Oakland City Hall, and Sprout Hall in the East Bay. Guests can find mischievous Minifigures throughout Miniland, spot ghosts at the Winchester Mystery House, shoot hoops at Chase Center, watch prisoners escape from Alcatraz, or travel across the Bay on BART.

Dubbed the ultimate indoor playground, the 31,000-square-foot Legoland Discovery Center features interactive and educational attraction space geared towards children ages 3-10 and their families.
