LEGOLAND Discovery Center Chicago is celebrating its 10th birthday by inviting guests to immortalize themselves as LEGO Minifigures inside a miniature version of downtown Chicago. If you want a tiny yellow version of yourself included in the diorama, you'll need to grab a ticket to the event and stop by the Streets of Woodfield store between July 31 and August 10. A $20.50 general admission pass gets you a LEGO Minifigure, access to LEGO characters, an exclusive factory brick and the opportunity to build cakes in the LEGO Master Builder Academy. The celebratory activities run from 10am to 2pm daily. 

The glass-enclosed miniature version of Chicago is quite impressive—the sprawling cityscape is made up of over 1.5 million colorful LEGO bricks and includes replicas of Navy Pier, the Chicago Water Tower, the Wrigley Building, Lake Point Tower and more architectural gems. There are even little CTA cars that cruise elevated tracks, tiny taxi cabs on the streets and boats traversing the Chicago River. The landscape changes from day to night as lights within the buildings glow when the sun goes down. Where will you place your figurine? Scope out a prime spot in the photos below.
