The Legoland Discovery Center Arizona finally opens its doors on Friday.

The 40,000 square-foot facility is located inside Arizona Mills Mall in Tempe across from SEA LIFE Aquarium.

Here's a quick look at what is inside (watch the video above for an inside tour).

Kingdom Quest Laser Ride:

Grab your best skeleton fighting friend and help rescue the captured Princess. Use your lasers to get the bad guys and rack up a high score.

Merlin's Apprentice Ride

Take a tour of Merlin's potion room. Pedal your way to new heights and get an above-ground view of the discovery center.


Downtown Phoenix has been re-built with Legos--over 800,000 in fact. See how many of the city's iconic buildings you can recognize.


Alecsander Posta was named "Master Model Builder" for the Arizona center in January after winning the official Lego-building contest. At the academy, Alecsander will host workshops and offer his tips and trick when it comes to building things with Legos.


At this attraction, build your best race car and put it to the test to see how fast it can go down a ramp.


There is also a 4-D cinema, a play center and jungle gym, Earthquake tables to see how your creations will withstand an earthquake, a special area for the little ones to enjoy softer and large bricks, and a Cafe.
