Oh Legoland! You know what I love about you? Our visits are always epic. I love that whenever we visit Legoland we are completely transported into a land of Legos. This year we were invited to Legoland's Halloween celebration Brick-or-Treat.
Every Saturday night (Oct. 1,8,15,22, & 29) at 5 p.m., LEGOLAND California transforms into a not-too-spooky Halloween party featuring a new Ghost Cruise adventure, a new pop-badge challenge through Fun Town, a new theater show in Castle Hill, a fall festival complete with a LEGO® pumpkin patch building activity and blue-grass style music in LEGO Friends Heartlake City, treat stations with specialty items including a LEGO® commemorative Brick, roaming candy carts throughout the Park and two bonus treat stations inside SEA LIFE® Aquarium.
Because we live near Los Angeles, taking a trip down to Carlsbad for Legoland is kind of a big deal for us. It's definitely an all day trip for us and we are always so excited to stop and take a photo in front of the welcome gates.
Before I get back into all of the Brick-or-Treat fun, I just had to mention some of the goodies that we enjoyed while we were at Legoland.
First of all, my Legoland fave, Apple Fries. I like to convince myself that they are a healthy snack since they are apples and just ignore that they are fried and covered in cinnamon and sugar.
Next, the Pork Belly Bánh Mì sandwich on fresh baked baguette was delicious. You can find this slightly spicy, super flavorful sandwich in Ninjago World at the Ninja Kitchen.
We also had pretzels, churros and brownies. But the seasonal goodies were what really caught our eye, including the giant (shareable) orange krispy treat drizzled with chocolate which you can find at most every snack stop and restaurant in the park.
Oh and make sure you download and use the Legoland App, my friend Catheryn at Cleverly Catheryn reminded me ahead of time and I was able to get the pumpkin/cream cheese crepe from the Creperie in Heartlake City for BOGO free.
The best part of the Brick-or-Treat Party Nights is the LEGO themed treat stations and activities. The Pop Badge Challenge was lots of fun too. We were tasked with completing three missions by solving puzzles and searching for clues. Party Nights Pop Badges are highly collectible and only limited quantities are produced.
Event tickets can be purchased for as low as $35 if purchased online in advance. You can enjoy costume contests, trick-or-treating for tasty goodies and other surprises, festive music, live entertainment including the “Boo Crew,” animated Spirits of Brick-or-Treat light show, and a new Ghost Cruise adventure.
Guests can also “boo-gie” down at dance parties: Hubble Bubble’s Dance Party atop the Model Shop in Miniland U.S.A., Pirate Booty Boogie at SEA LIFE Aquarium, plus sing and dance along to the music and mayhem in the Monster Fighter Mash featured at the Fun Town Stage. An all new show, “The Curse of the Hallowmeenie” debuts at the Castle Stage in Castle Hill. Special event guests can also enjoy entertainment from The Witchettes, Bluegrass Band Jamboree and a special LEGO Friends meet and greet in Heartlake City, where kids can decorate their own craft!
