LEGO® Imagine Nation Tour Vancouver


This morning we headed downtown to Canada Place with the boys for the last day of the LEGO® Imagine Nation Tour in Vancouver. It was a gorgeous fall morning and the waterfront views at Canada Place were stunning as usual.

The first ever LEGO® Imagine Nation Tour features over 2.5 acres of amazing interactive play experiences, life-size LEGO models, Brick Pits, Master Model Builders and more. The next and final tour stop will be October 14-16 in Toronto, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.



The boys are both huge LEGO fans and they had a blast visiting the different areas and building whatever they wanted. There were SO many LEGO bricks available to build in each area. A LEGO lover’s dream!  We also had the chance to admire and take photos with life-size LEGO models like Star Wars characters, Superheroes and more.  There were also cool digitally-enhanced areas where you were able to bring your LEGO creations to life on the big screen as children built their LEGO NINJAGO™, LEGO Elves, or LEGO Friends themed models, scanned them into the game and enjoyed a thrilling, immersive 60-second experience featuring their own custom creation. So cool





Some of the areas available were:

  • Master Builder Lab: learn building tips and tricks from one of only eight Master Builders in the world
  • Bridge Build Challenge: test engineering skills in a group competition to build and test the strongest LEGObridge
  • Brick Pit: imagine and build anything from a mountain of LEGO bricks of every color and size
  • LEGO Video Games: demo the newest titles from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
  • Life-Sized LEGO Models: snap a photo with 20 incredible sculptures, including a staggering 8-foot-tall LEGO MARVEL™ Super Heroes Avengers model and a 7-foot-long LEGO Friends car
  • Digitally Enhanced Building Pavilions: bring LEGO creations to life in four areas where children can create LEGO Elves, LEGO Friends, or LEGO NINJAGO™ themed model, scan it into the game and enjoy a 60-second gaming experience featuring their custom creation
  • Model Display Areas: build & showcase LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS™, LEGO Star Wars™, or LEGO Minecraft models
We had a great morning LEGO brick-building for a few hours and the boys left with some LEGO samples and a cool LEGO Star Wars poster that is now up on our son’s room. If you are in the Toronto area and love LEGO then I highly recommend you get your tickets for the Toronto tour asap. We are really hoping they make it a yearly event as well!

    Marvellous, my kids all loved Lego (some still do!) and my grandchildren can’t get enough Lego sets it seems, they are always on their Christmas list.
