Halloween can be a tricky holiday when you have young kids. You want kids to enjoy the holiday but there are so many scary events that are just too much for younger kids. I love it when I find an event that my whole family can enjoy and one of my favorites is Brick-or-Treat Party Nights at Legoland, California. If you will be in or around Southern California during the month of October, I highly recommend checking it out. If not, road trip anyone?
Legoland has been a favorite in my family for years. We actually used to live just down the street so we’ve spent quite a bit of time there. This year they’ve made some exciting changes to Brick or Treat that make it even more appealing to families with younger kids.
Brick-or-Treat Party Nights is a special event and requires a special ticket to get into (or stay, if you are already visiting) the park. Tickets can be purchased for as low as $35. It’s a great way to visit the park at a discount and with Brick-Or-Treat extending hours from 5:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. you still get plenty of time to explore the park. Brick-Or-Treat Party Nights runs every Saturday in October plus Friday Oct. 30.
A new addition to the Brick or Treat lineup is Cany Quest. It’s located in the the Adventurers’ Club in Fun Town, something my younger kids are usually a bit nervous about because walking through the polar bear cave with growling sounds is a bit intimidating to them. I brought my three middle kids with me on this visit to Legoland (ages 9, 7, and 3) and my 3 year old was definitely a bit anxious when we told her we were going through Candy Quest.
Each room in the Adventurers’ Club in Fun Town was all decked out for Halloween and had a trick or treat station. When we got to the polar bear room, my 3 year old jumped behind me to hide . . . until she saw what was in the room now. As part of Candy Quest, there was a beautiful ice princess instead of the usual polar bear and my daughter was mesmerized. I could hardly get her to leave the room and even though she was nervous about walking through Candy Quest, it was one of the highlights of our visit for her.
I’ve always loved seeing Legoland all decked out for Halloween. It’s all kid friendly and there are some fantastic photo opportunities.
This year there are expanded trick or treat stations so you have plenty of opportunities to fill up that goody bag. We’ve always loved the selections of treats they hand out. There is candy, but there are also healthy treat options like juice boxes, granola bars, and fun treats like Lego bricks.
Brick-or-Treat Party Nights is always one of the highlights of our Halloween season. If you will be in the area, it’s definitely worth stopping by. Find more information at http://www.brickortreat.com.
