(Scroll down for video) Adults are angry after they were turned away from a Legoland due to their age.

Adult Lego fans have threatened to file human rights violation complaints about age limits at Australia’s first Legoland Discovery Center that recently opened.

Adults cannot enter the center unless they are accompanied by a child who is under the age of 17.

However, they do have one day a month for adults who do not have children.

Several adults took to social media to complain about being turned away from the door.

The adults said that when they bought their yearly pass, they were not informed that they will need a child to accompany them to the playground at the Melbourne’s Chadstone shopping center, which is aimed at children between three and ten years old.

Fans threatened to file complaints with Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal and the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission over the rule, which they claimed was age-based discrimination.

One fan wrote that “Lego is something that is enjoyed through all ages. Personally, I have thousands of dollars in the series of creators and architecture.”

These fans will still be able to spend their money for Lego as the age ban is only at the discovery centre, and not for the Lego shop.
