LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta welcomes families with children on the autism spectrum or with sensory processing disorders to a sensory-friendly environment every final Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Within the adjusted tranquil setting, children can enjoy the popular attraction without sensory triggers that may otherwise disrupt their experience.
A sensory-friendly environment is created by limiting attendance to create a more manageable atmosphere. Lights, sound and temperature will also be adjusted according to the preferences of families and children in attendance. Guests can also use the birthday party rooms as a quiet space to cool down. The attraction’s 4D movies will be exchanged for 2D formats in the LEGO® 4D Cinema attraction. The center further creates a soft and inviting atmosphere across attractions such as MINILAND® – a LEGO display made of 1.5 million blocks that features a night scene city-scape – and much more!
Sensory Saturday guests are welcome to remain at LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta as it begins regular opening hours at 10 a.m. Visitors should be advised that, during regular business hours, the center features strobe lights in the LEGO 4D Cinema attraction and lasers in the Kingdom Quest ride. The Center provides full access for disabled visitors, with wheelchair access and elevators throughout the building.
