LEGOLAND Brick or Treat Returns with More LeGHOULish Surprises

This October, your little one can get spooky with LEGO ghosts and ghouls and skeletons and more at the second annual Brick-or-Treat celebration at the LEGOLAND Discovery Center. Kids are encouraged to wear costumes (making yet another great space for you to get extra mileage out if it!) as they participate in frightening family fun every Saturday (10:00AM-7:30PM) and Sunday (10:00AM-6:00PM) through October 28. We got a chance to check it out along with my LEGO-loving little one. Here's what you can expect!

Want to check out some more Halloween fun in the Philly area? We've got your covered with our Ultimate Guide to Halloween Events.

Every weekend, guests can enjoy an especially spooky MINILAND Philadelphia crawling with 100 additions including spiders, skeletons, pumpkins, and batwings. My son and I really enjoyed finding all the spooky additions, and what makes it even better is the chance to win four free annual passes by identifying how many skeletons and ghosts are hidden throughout the city. (Hint: You will need to look high and low).

See if you can spot the scary ghosts and skeletons!

With fun stations around the center, kids can build festive LEGO creations and take a family photo with a pumpkin patch display. More scavenger hunting fun takes place as guests are invited to follow clues throughout LEGOLAND Discovery Center to collect LEGO pieces that will ultimately build a mystery creation. As regulars to LEGOLAND, we had a great time seeing the spooky decorations and extras around the space, while also enjoying our usual favorites. 

As a heads up, different fall activities (some spooky, some just good seasonal fun) take place each weekend. Meet some real-life spooky creatures when the Elmwood Park Zoo visits October 6-7, bringing an owl, snake, and tarantula to haunt your dreams! Or meet a Pirate when the Seaport Museum's Cubby the Pirate pays a visit on October 21-22. Check the events calendar for times and other activities happening. 

If you've already visited LEGOLAND you will know the drill, but for newbies, a few tips:

  • Buy your tickets in advance to make entrance easier.
  • LEGOLAND is inside the Plymouth Meeting Mall, so try to find parking near the life-sized LEGO giraffe outside (on the same side as the Whole Foods).
  • The space also includes a pirate playground, bricks for big and little kids, a 3D movie theater with hilarious 15-minute LEGO "movies" and themed spaces for some of the most popular LEGO sets and shows, and more. You can easily spend 2 hours here if you have a true LEGO lover on your hands.
  • There is also, of course, a LEGO store on your exit. I always pre-negotiate with my kiddos any purchases before we even enter the building to save on begging or potential tantrums.
