Legoland bans adults without kids from 'discovery centre'
Legoland Discovery Centre, the first of its kind in the southern hemisphere, opened in Melbourne this week.
But adults are angry they were not allowed inside its "discovery centre" without being accompanied by a child.
Melbourne Radio's 3AW was told LEGOLAND would ban adults from visiting the Chadstone store alone.
@thatwearwolf they shouldn't let in adults *or* children. Lego people only.— Tim (@timsterne) March 28, 2017
The store has since confirmed it would not permit entry into the discovery centre to groups of adults, adult couples, or lone adults, who are not accompanied by a child or children under the age of 16.
It says its "primary objective is to provide a safe and fun attraction for families with children to enjoy together."
Management said it would host "regular evening events specifically for adults" to cater for demand.
The store ois now open
@timsterne correct! Lego people are marginalised by this behaviour— jess (@thatwearwolf) March 28, 2017
