Melbourne’s LEGOLAND implements COVIDSafe measures to ensure visitor health
For Melbourne’s LEGOLAND Discovery Centre reopening to the public on 19th November 2020, new COVIDSafe measures - including regularly disinfecting and cleaning LEGO blocks and high-frequency touch points - will ensure the safety of its visitors.
The health and safety measures, which were originally implemented in June, include regularly disinfecting and cleaning LEGO and high-frequency touch points. The attraction’s industrial cleaning machine is being used to wash LEGO bricks three times per day.
Other measures include becoming a completely cashless operation, lowering capacity limits with allocated time-slots for guests, the use of additional Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and clothing for staff, the provision of spatial separation markings, the installation of hygiene screens in various areas and vigorous cleaning regimes. All visitors aged 12 and above will be required to wear face masks.
Following the Victorian Government’s move to allow playcentres to reopen, LEGOLAND Discovery Centre General Manager, Katie Isaac enthuses “we are thrilled to welcome guests back to LEGOLAND Discovery Centre and have been working behind the scenes to ensure the attraction is a safe and fun place for families to visit.
“It is really important for all visitors – including our valued annual pass holders – to pre-book their timeslot in advance as we have capacity restrictions in place to allow for social distancing.
“We are very excited to welcome guests back and are also incredibly proud of what we have achieved during the two closure periods. We have continued creating magical LEGO experiences by launching a successful online retail store, hosting twice weekly live streams, running online school workshops and holding our first ever virtual holiday camp.”
Located at Chadstone Shopping Centre, LEGOLAND Discovery Centre is home to a LEGO model of Melbourne, 11 build and play zones, two rides, a 4D cinema, retail store, and soft play zones. The attraction is designed specifically for families with children aged 3-10. Adults must be accompanied by a child (except when visiting the retail store or attending Adult Night events).
