LEGO Castle Adventure

A few weeks ago we had the opportunity to check out the The Discovery Cube’s newest exhibits, LEGO Castle Adventure and DaVinci The Genius/DaVinci Jr. The two exhibits are included in the price of general admission and are so much fun that we never made it past the two exhibits. They had the time of their lives and have asked me often since our visit, when we can visit again.



LEGO Castle Adventure is fun for the entire family and definitely for a LEGO enthusiast like my son. The exhibit has a little something for everyone. There is a separate area for the itty bitty kiddos, a virtual building area which allows kids and their families to build a virtual fortress and test it, plus much much more. Trust me on this when I say the kids aren’t going to want to leave the area. We could have stayed there for hours.

DaVinci The Genius/DaVinci Jr is a new exhibit that is not only fun for the kiddies, it’s fun for grown ups too! The DaVinci exhibit is also included in general admission and has something for every member of your family. From an interactive area for younger children, to famous replicas of some DaVinci’s greatest works. You can take a look at dozens of Leonardo DaVinci’s inventions, while the kids create their own masterpiece. You’re going to love this exhibit.

The LEGO Castle Adventure will be at The Discovery Science Center until September 25th, while DaVinci The Genius/DaVinci Jr will be there until September 8th. To learn more about both of these exhibits head here.. and remember they are both included in the price of general admission. Have fun checking both exhibits out!


Bubblefest at the Discovery Science Center

This past Friday, the kiddos and I spent a super fun afternoon at the Discovery Science Center. Spring Break is here and we have been trying to do something fun each day. Spring Break also means that Bubbefest is back at the Discovery Science Center. The Spring Break tradition is back and better than ever! Bubble artist Deni Yang, brings his unique show to Orange County. Bubblefest is a  show like no other. The bubble extravaganza features a bubble carousel, bubbles within bubbles, smoking bubbles, spinning bubbles, bouncing bubbles and bubbles in all shapes and sizes


The show also features a pretty cool festival area with water spheres, a bouncy play slide area, and other fun stuff! The kids had an absolute blast and my son just walked by, caught a glimpse of the post, and said “Mom, when can we go to Bubblefest again?”. He was one of the lucky kiddos that was chosen to be inside a bubble. I don’t think he will forget that anytime soon!


A visit to Bubblefest is not complete without some play time at the museum. The kiddos had a blast before and after the show. Our visit to the Cube and to Bubblefest will definitely go down as a highlight of our Spring Break!

Bubblefest tickets are $5 for members and $7 for non-members. A general admission ticket is required to attend the event. For additional info or to purchase tickets head here. Bubblefest will be at the Discovery Science Center until April 14th. You don’t want to miss it!
