Brick-or-Treat Party Nights at LEGOLAND!

Brick-or-Treat Party Nights at LEGOLAND!

The world of Legos comes to life at LEGOLAND in Carlsbad California.  With hilarious shows and exciting attractions and rides there is plenty to do for the entire family. LEGOLAND  is hosting its annual Brick-or-Treat party nights.  This night time special event takes place on select evenings through the month of October.  Guest (both big and small) can dress in costume and “Brick-or-treat” at stations throughout the Park, dance the night away, and show off their costumes at the annual Costume Contest.  There are new additions to the spooktacular festivities.  The Coast Cruise transforms into the spooky Ghost Cruise with new hauntings.  Win Brick-or-Treat inspired Pop badges by completing fun filled activities throughout the park. There is so much  to do for everyone.

When you first enter the park you want to make sure you head over to the wrist band distribution station to get your Brick-or-Treat wrist band.  After you get your wrist band you can start exploring the park.

There are 12 treat stations set up throughout the park.  From magazines to candy, each treat station hands out a variety of treats.  Some of the treats are healthy snacks.  Don’t worry if you forget to bring treat bags.  Treat bags are provided for you.

As you make your way to each treat station there are spooky funny characters walking throughout the park some as tall as 12ft tall.  The decorations of skeletons, ghost, and pumpkins are all fun to see.  Of course it wouldn’t be Brick-or Treat without some Lego inspired decorations.  Along your way you might run into a Fortune Teller Both with a real Fortune Teller inside or a troll who is incredibly funny.

One of my favorite things is to see are all the different costumes.  The annual costume contest is held at Miniland Stage in Miniland.  There are three categories Group, LEGO Theme, and Most Creative.  There is also dancing and shows at this stage. Also be sure you don’t miss the Curse of the Hallowmeanie! There’s a spooky Halloween spirit haunting the castle!  Or maybe its just Jester Funnybones, back from the grave with a sneaky plan up his skeleton sleeve?  Get ready for kooky costumes, crazy characters and slapstick fun in this all new Brick-or-Treat show!

LEGOLAND! Holiday Snow Days & Winter Nights are Here Through January 3rd! #LegolandCA

LEGOLAND! Holiday Snow Days & Winter Nights

By Penny from On the Go OC!

*We received media tickets to attend the Holiday Snow Days at Legoland*

It was a Snow Day kind of day today! We packed up some jackets and headed south to Legoland in Carlsbad.

We were able to cover Holiday Snow Days for Erin and experience all the fun that LEGOLAND CA is bringing to winter on sunny SoCal!

Holiday-Snow-Days-Legoland

What I love the most about Legoland is that my whole family can enjoy everything from food to rides.

The Holidays bring out all the festivities. Our top 5 faves per my 8 year old:

Snow-Play-Snow-Man-Legoland-Carlsbad

* Snow Play* – The kids loved to play in the snow with their friends. There was plenty of room to celebrate the winter fun with Snow Man building, and he was a huge one! Throwing snow balls at a festive wall was also a lot of fun. They were able to sled as much as they wanted to. There was plenty of room to play for the kids and adults and there was also a snow ball launching area to aim at targets. So much fun for everyone to play with snow in the warm sun!

Heartlake-City-Legoland

* HeartLake City*– Always a favorite to visit. The Holiday show was just amazing. The kids sang along and danced while the Lego Friends came together in a special Winter treat of song and dance and of course friendship!

* Christmas Tree Lighting and Music* – Jenna Elfman did a wonderful job and the live music was magical. The lighting was beautiful and was accompanied with fireworks and snowfall! Everyone really loved the surprises that made the tree lighting so perfect.

Legoland-Christmastree-Lighting-Fireworks

* Fireworks* – This was a pleasant surprise for everyone! The winter night sky was lit up with fireworks to celebrate the Tree lighting ceremony! It was the perfect end to the night!

Lego-Santa

* Santa and Lego Santa* – Did you know that Lego Santa is on the grounds!? He is so cute and just adorable. Make sure you catch him and get a hug!
