Autism Friendly Thursdays!

Autism Friendly Thursdays!



As part of our ongoing commitment to creating a fun environment for all, every Thursday afternoon during term time will be Autism friendly*

From 2pm til 6pm we will be placing extra trained staff around the Attraction, we will also turn off the music, limit the sound effects and make the lighting as standard as possible throughout.

All the awesome elements of LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre, such as the bricks, soft play area, stop motion animation tables and the rides will be open as usual! But the centre will just be a little bit quieter and lighter. If there is an event running on your visit date (see the events page), then all the awesome extra builds and themed fun will be available to join in with too!

For the parts of the attraction which require certain lighting and effects to operate (such as the 4D Cinema and the Kingdom Quest ride) signs will be in place and staff will fully explain what will happen for families to make an informed decision before entering that particular area.

There will be a designated quiet space available and extra provisions such as ear defenders can also be provided. A social story about LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Manchester is available to download HERE for familiarising children with the centre before a visit.

Due to the limited capacity, advanced booking is advised.
All adults must be accompanied by a child.
