Cosmic Coaster Opens (WOF)
Cosmic Coaster (the coaster formerly known as Wacky Worm) is now open!
The apple has been redressed as a planet.
Check out the redressed train.
The queue line is more permanent now - and also ADA friendly.
Looks much better than how it used to.

Legoland Discovery Center Kansas City
Welcome to Legoland Discovery Center Kansas City at the Crown Center.
Let's head on in and check the place out.
Now that we have exited the elevators that took us up, let's look around.
This is the Lego Factory.
Here you get to learn how those famous bricks are created.
Here's a press machine.
Finally the end product comes out here.
You can also check out what the Master Model Builder is up to.
As soon as you exit the factory you come to the Kingdom Quest ride.
The ride features blasters which you use to fend off bad guys.
There's a good mixture of video screens and actually animatronic sets on the ride.
Pretty fun and impressive ride.
Our next ride is the Merlin's Apprentice.
The ride is powered by the riders and the faster you pedal the higher your cart goes.
This is the Master Builder Workshop.
The Academy Play Area.
There are lots of fun climbing activities in this area.
Racers Build & Test area.
You build your car and then test it out on the different tracks.
