My son loves LEGOS. In the last year, my living room has been the site of the Capitol building, the Chicago skyline, and the Eiffel Tower. I thought he’d outgrow them by now, but as long as there are new and more complex things to build, he’s on board. So he was super excited when I told him that we were taking a trip to LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Westchester for their annual Brick-or-Treat Halloween celebration. 

Decked out as the brazen Dash Incredible, my 10-year-old son and I (and his big brother, age 20) set out to our local LEGOLAND to enjoy this special event. When we arrived, we were given a mini LEGO piece and sent off to work our way through the attractions to collect all four pieces to build a LEGO bat.

The first room we walked into was a LEGO miniature version of New York City—Miniland— that took up an entire room! “Dash” rushed in, pointing out such landmarks as the Chrysler building, a subway series at Citifield, and multitudes of cobweb-laden skyscrapers. We embarked on a LEGO Miniland spooky scavenger hunt to find all the missing LEGO pumpkins that were hidden within the city. We THINK we found all the pumpkins and entered our guesses to win a chance at four free annual passes to LEGOLAND. “Dash” also loved checking out other LEGO-built popular NYC sites, and there were lots of buttons to press that turned on lights and made things move, which still somehow appeals to my newly-minted 10-year old. 

There was a cool Halloween-themed LEGO mosaic, which Dash helped to build at the Master Builder Academy. Of course, there were lots of regular attractions that delighted him. He built about a half dozen LEGO cars at the LEGO Build and Test track that he raced against another Dash, one Ninja Turtle, and some members of the Paw Patrol. He rode Merlin’s Apprentice, an interactive flying ride where he was able to control how high he went (which is surprisingly high for an indoor ride!). I had to drag him off the gigantic, complex jungle gym (when will he outgrow this?). And even his big brother enjoyed the Ninjago 4-D movie.  

If you didn’t get a chance yet, get your kid to LEGOLAND Discovery Center! It was a great way to spend a few hours and my 10-year old (and even my 20-year old) enjoyed themselves and got into the Halloween spirit!
