Visiting Legoland Windsor was a lifelong dream of Canadian Lego fanatic John St-Onge, who had travelled from Ontario, to Toronto especially to visit the attraction.
The 63-year-old has more than 50,000 pieces which he has collected for three decades after buying the sets for his own children reports News.com.au.
When he found out there was a Legoland Discovery Centre at an Ontario tourism centre he decided to pay it a visit with his adult daughter Nicole, but he hadn’t realised the company rules state adults cannot visit without a child.
Daughter Nicole said despite speaking with the manager the pair were not allowed in and that it was a silly rule as “Lego is for people of all ages”.
“I was crushed. My dad is 63 years old, he was devastated. The look on his face was like a child not getting the gift at Christmas that they want.
“He felt discriminated against because he’s a senior citizen who also happens to like Lego.”
