LEGOLAND Discovery Center gives kids a little round-headed person's view of the world, surrounding them with blown-up versions of normally miniature plastic environments. At six locations across North America, children ages 3 and older?and their adults?drive all-terrain buggies through a Lego forest in hot pursuit of bank robbers, travel through a dungeon blasting skeletons with laser guns, and build and test their own race cars on a colorful track. At every location, visitors can enter the 4D Cinema, where 3D Lego films are enhanced with in-theater weather effects such as wind and snow. They can also look out over Lego-brick recreations of the local city that feature scale models of landmarks and the Kansas City location also recreates the magical world from The Wizard of Oz.

An exploration of the bright world of plastic bricks doesn't have to end at the attractions. To continue the fun at home, shops at each location house hundreds of current Lego sets.

A glass bridge is suspended above a field of 9,000 red poppies, each flower representing 1,000 soldiers who died in the Great War. This living symbol is one of the many powerful exhibits within the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial, the only museum in the U.S. dedicated exclusively to World War I and dedicated by Congress as the nation's official World War I museum in 2004. Named one of the top 25 museums in the U.S. in TripAdvisor's 2014 Travelers' Choice Awards, the Museum is also rated the No. 1 attraction in Kansas City.

Designed by Ralph Appelbaum, who also lent his expertise to such landmarks as the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the National World War I Museum integrates first-person accounts into a narrative that flows through its permanent and visiting exhibitions. The Museum's collection comprises World War I artifacts such as field artillery, a 1917 Harley Davidson motorcycle, and unopened cigarette packs from a 1914 Princess Mary Christmas Box. The Museum also includes Over There Caf? and a comprehensive gift store.

With sonorously soaring aerialists, seamless integration of modern-dance choreography, and harmonious orchestration, Symphonic Quixotic embodies a sensory experience invoking the classical elements of fire, earth, wind, and water. Quixotic Fusion's bombastic performances defy classification as the gravity-defettered dancers twist and fly to the beat of modern mixes before a hypnotizing video composition like so many raver leaves grooving in gusts of trip-hop winds.

Wonk Entertainment's audio alchemists turn raw musical talent into refined, professional-grade tracks in their cutting-edge studio. Wonk Entertainment will spend up to five hours with anywhere from one performer to as many as will fit into the studio, making sure no barbershop quartet, David Hasselhoff cover band, or glee club is left out. Every tone and solo will be captured and cut by state of the art equipment, including a Neve V3 console, Pro Tools HD, and three Darth Vader voice changers. Projects can range anywhere in complexity from a garage band's demo reel to a love-song recording or a business's new, relentlessly catchy commercial jingle.

Crossroads Bootcamp’s seasoned instructors challenge students to exceed their fitness goals at 60-minute boot-camp-style workouts and CrossFit sessions. In addition to teaching participants how to stop time with an intense stare, boot-camp classes sculpt the entire body with intense cardio and the strength-building power of barbells, kettlebells, and medicine balls. Like interpretations of traffic laws, no two boot-camp workouts are identical, which keeps minds and muscles on their proverbial toes. CrossFit sessions team small groups of exercisers with an inspiring coach to practice strength-and-conditioning exercises that, though challenging, can be scaled to suit any fitness level. The intense workouts and disciplined mindset of CrossFit training makes it a popular choice among police, martial-arts trainers, and cops who specialize in capturing rogue martial artists.

Each Crossroads class unfurls in a 4,500-square-foot loft studio, which provides ample room for Herculean barbell lifts and spontaneous zeppelin crashes. Classes are scheduled seven days a week.

Since its origins as a converted parking garage, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema has ushered film-lovers of all breeds into its auditoriums, even gaining a following among Hollywood legends; Quentin Tarantino has been known to host five-day movie marathons at Alamo. The theater has earned that reputation by making moviegoing a personal experience, from the menu of handcrafted snacks and locally brewed beer to the completely ad-free presentations before shows. Alamo’s ninja servers pick up written food and drink orders throughout the movie and serve moviegoers directly at their seat. The staff enforces a strict no-talking, no-texting policy by kicking out any offenders, falling just short of yanking them from their seats with a giant's shepherd's crook.

Both first-run blockbusters and classics are projected onto Alamo's silver screens in crisp 35-millimeter or digital format. Meanwhile, surround speakers immerse audiences in the cinematic soundscape, whether they're seated in one of the expansive theaters afforded to blockbuster reels or the more intimate spaces reserved for indie films wound around tiny bobbins. Despite Alamo's vow of silence, fan-centric Quote-Along and Sing-Along nights encourage guests to shout their favorite lines, and actors, directors, and other celebrities often attend special screenings to lead in-depth discussions. These exclusive events have led to acclaim for Alamo from publications such as Entertainment Weekly, which called it “one of America's most fanatically unique moviegoing experiences,” and Wired, which opined that it "might just be the coolest movie theater in the world."
