5 treats on the Brick or Treat Trail that don’t include candy

Pirates, witches, ghosts, and goblins all gather for candy on the Brick or Treat Trail! Kids can trick-or-treat for sweets along our famous and festive path but Airheads and M&M’s are not all that’s out there. The Brick or Treat Trail includes some treats that have nothing to do with candy! Here are 5 of them:

 

1. As you enter the trail, allow Willa the Witch to welcome you onto our kooky path (don’t worry, she’s a friendly witch!)

2. Get into the fall spirit with our LEGO Pumpkin patch – it’s the perfect fall photo-op!

3. You may even get to hear stand-up from our Scare Crows! Hopefully, their jokes won’t be too corn-y!

4. Just past our pumpkin patch, things get a little spookier in our LEGO Graveyard where your LEGO friends rest in LEGO pieces.

5. As you receive your goodies, you’ll get to meet and interact with exciting characters like a vampyre, a mad scientist, a ghost and more!

 

New Show! Weekends in October

At the newly opened City Stage presented by Wells Fargo, a fun musical show is performing during weekends in October for the whole family to sing and clap along! I had the pleasure of meeting the friendly werewolf, candy witch, smart scientist and bumblebee last week and can confirm that they are buzzing with excitement for the show to begin!

A Candy-Coated Curse features upbeat songs, energetic choreography through talented singers and dancers.  The audience will follow the story of some curious ‘Brick or Treaters’ as they stumble upon an old, rundown City Hall building, and choose to explore the haunted halls. They soon after realize they aren’t alone and need the magic and help from the audience to try to break the silly curse!

Experience this friendly, not frightening show during weekends in October to find out if the audience has what it takes to break the curse!

Kick-Off Fire Prevention Week at Firefighter Friday October 5th!

Join us as we help NFPA kick-off of Fire Prevention Week and celebrate real life heroes at Firefighter Friday on October 5th! Learn fire safety and have fun with our activities throughout the day!

This year’s theme: Look. Listen Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere.

“LOOK” for places fire could start. Take a good look around your home. Identify potential fire hazards and take care of them.

“LISTEN” for the sound of the smoke alarm. You could have only minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Go to your outside meeting place, which should be a safe distance from the home and where everyone should know to meet.

“LEARN” two ways out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are free of clutter.

So, what’s going on at LEGOLAND on October 5th?

Bring the heat at NFPA Fire Rescue Academy: Test your firefighter skills at Fire Rescue Academy! Families will be timed throughout the day and entered to win a LEGO® prize pack!

Assemble the Bricks: Brick by brick, help us build giant LEGO® City Firefighters out of thousands of LEGO Bricks!

Extinguish the fires: There are fires throughout MINILAND USA, and LEGO® City firefighters need your help locating the flames! Submit your answers for a chance to win a LEGO prize pack!

You’ll also have the chance to meet LEGO City Firefighter Max and other special heroes throughout the day! Event activities will be taking place from 11-4 in MINILAND USA and LEGO City!

 

 

Top 5 Things to do at Brick or Treat

Weekends in October + Halloween

My last blog post covered all things Brick or Treat for 2018! Here are my top 5 recommended must-do experiences during your Halloween visit! Warning, I like puns…

#1 Unique Trick-or-Treating

The Brick or Treat trail provides a unique trick-or-treating experience, where you will be greeted by Willa the friendly witch as you enter the journey. Kids visit several themed houses meeting Halloween characters passing out sweets such as a mad scientist at the LEGO Laboratory or a sneaky pirate in the captain’s boathouse. Along the way, snap a photo in a LEGO pumpkin patch or pay a visit to the graveyard with some puny ghosts from the past that are resting in LEGO pieces!

#2 Pirate-Themed Fireworks Show

There’s no better way to end your night, than with a bang! Stick around for the Tale of Pirate’s Cove fireworks spectacular as pirates battle the imperial navy to save Pirate’s Cove! For those of you who have not been to one of our fireworks shows, we pass out special viewing glasses that turn the fireworks light into LEGO bricks exploding in the sky. Fireworks start at 8pm and seating & glasses pick-up open at 7pm. Personal secret, bring home your fireworks glasses to look at other bright lights – it’s a nice LEGOLAND takeaway!

For guests who don’t want to wait around, there is a VIP Experience offered with premium fireworks seating!

#3 Rock & Roll with Frankenstein

Jump on stage with LEGO Frankenstein and his skeleton monster band! This character experience is new this year and it…rocks! Put the spotlight on you as you join the band for a brick-tastic family photo!

#4 Pumpkin Spiced Apple Fries

It’s that time of year again where the air fills with pumpkin spice and all your favorite treats turn into pumpkin sweets. To keep up with this trendy tradition, make sure you visit our LEGOLAND fan-favorite spot, Granny’s Apple Fries, to get your Pumpkin Spiced Apple Fries (and ask for caramel for an extra delicious fall twist)!
