The 3,000sq m attraction, set to open in summer 2022, has been co-created by Merlin & the LEGO® Group and will occupy the space previously held by MediaMarkt, which moved indoors.
Docks Bruxsel, the youngest of Portus Retail’s capital’s shopping centres, at the banks of the Sea Channel Brussels-Scheldt, has secured an agreement with Merlin Entertainments, Europe’s number one and the world’s second-largest visitor attractions operator, to launch a next generation of its LEGOLAND Discovery Centres, with more details to be announced later this year.
“We are delighted to be opening this new LEGOLAND Discovery Centre in Belgium by partnering with Docks Bruxsel. Our LEGO themed attractions have been a huge success across the globe, providing an opportunity for adults and children to spend fun and quality time together in an awesome LEGO world. We look forward to revealing more special details over the coming months ahead of welcoming our first visitors in Summer 2022.” said Meike Lippert, Senior Divisional Director Midway Europe and Global New Openings, Merlin Entertainments.
Additionally, the initiative should further boost the growing success of Docks Bruxsel itself, which, according to 2020 end-of-year statistics, has survived the COVID crisis relatively unscathed.
