LEGOLAND is a great theme park, located about 30 minutes from Orlando, Fl. The park is dedicated to families of children between the ages of 2 and 12, and loved by many a LEGO fan! My original visit to the park was a great time, especially for my 6-year-old son. Admittedly, he had only played with the DUPLO line of LEGO products. However, since leaving the park my son has become quite good at saving up and shopping the LEGO sales to get himself a few great sets! I admit we also help with the purchase costs because I find that LEGOS are great for my son’s focusing and reasoning skills, much as puzzles do.
Wanting to experience more of the theme park and also the Brick-or-Treat Halloween party, we were invited to return to the park. To begin our second tour, we decided to begin with the Halloween offerings. The Halloween Party for this theme park is included in the theme park ticket and is available on Saturdays and Sundays in October. My son decided he did not want to take part in their Halloween Costume Contest so we did not participate in that. However, be sure to check with LEGOLAND if your child would like to participate. The contests follow a schedule which includes a sign up time which cannot be missed if you want to participate.
Moving on, we headed to the LEGO Monster Fighters Haunted Scavenger Hunt. Here you seek out candy corns made of LEGOs, which are carefully hidden within LEGO cities. This year included 5 letters which unscrambled to make a Halloween-friendly word. We admit, it was a bit of a challenge to find the last letter! The family split up and eventually found the last letter. We loved it!
Costume on, my son headed through the Brick-or-Treat Trail. At the head of the Trail, a worker gave my son a bag and then my son received a hand stamp and we were told only he was allowed to collect treats. Each of the treat stations were within 10 feet of one another with around 10 total different stations.
Overall, we loved our visit to the Halloween party at LEGOLAND. The offerings were perfect, allowing plenty of time to experience the attractions in the theme park, as well as time to experience the Halloween offerings. Again, the Party is included in the price of admission. If you plan on heading to LEGOLAND, you should consider planning to head down there in the month of October to take advantage of this great party!
