The much-anticipated Lego Discovery Center at Springfield Town Center (6500 Franconia-Springfield Parkway) will open on Aug. 9, meeting its promised summer launch date.

The company announced the grand opening date yesterday (Monday), inviting community members to sign up for its newsletter for access to pre-sale tickets.

“Be one of the first families to visit us from Thursday, August 10th through Sunday, August 13th with a ‘First to Play’ ticket,” Lego Discovery Center D.C. said.

Tickets will go on sale for the general public on Thursday (June 15). Prices start at $28.99 for a standard admission ticket. Higher-priced packages come with a Lego collectible and digital photos.

The announcement was first reported by NBC4.

Located near the mall’s main entrance facing Loisdale Road, the 32,000-square-foot facility broke ground in December. It will feature an interactive play area, a Lego Mini World with sets built from more than 1.5 million bricks, a 4D theater, a train, carousel and more.

Also expected to open at Springfield Town Center this year is a 30,000-square-foot Burlington clothing store, though an exact date hasn’t yet been confirmed. In March, the mall welcomed a Day & Night Cereal Bar.

The mall’s merry-go-round could also potentially be revived this August, aligning with the Lego opening.
