To receive the discounted group rates, your group must be a minimum of 10 children.  Minimum number for an education workshop is 20 children.  Maximum number for one workshop at a time is 25 kids (if your group is larger we will divide into smaller groups and rotate between workshop and the rest of LEGOLANDDiscoveryCenter).
