Happy Halloween and Merry Brick-or-Treat! We attended LEGOLAND Florida’s fantastic seasonal event that brings spooky fun for the whole family! From trick-or-treating to kooky character meets, as well as the new virtual queues, there’s no end to the cool experiences this October.
Trick-or-treating candy stations are touchless, operating with a chute. Bags are provided unless families prefer to bring their own containers. Children simply hold their bags under the chute and workers slide the candy straight down into their bags. It’s a fun way for kids to get their candy safely while implementing social distancing. Treat stations run from 1 to 6 PM. There are six locations around the park, each with a different theme and type of candy. Guests will find everything sweet from Snickers to Twizzlers!
Guests should be aware that while social distancing is encouraged and virtual ride queues are in use around the parks, masks are only mandatory for guests ages 8 and up on rides and indoors. Visitors are encouraged to wear them everywhere, but it is not enforced.
When the kids are done sugaring up for a while they can enjoy live shows with groups like The Groovin’ Graveyard, musical spirits that can awaken a desire to dance. A Candy-Coated Curse is a live show that brings music and mystery together for a frighteningly good performance!
Kids will also love getting to experience some friendly monsters at Brick-or-Treat this year. Characters include Rockin’ Frankenstein, Mummy, and Lord Vampyre, spooky favorites that are more cute than creepy! They remain on platforms 6 feet away from guests as well but have special markers set up so that guests can still get the perfect photo op. Other fun people to get photos with are the face characters up on stilts, such as scarecrows and witches.
While there, guests will want to be sure and grab a Vampyre Shadough cone. It’s safe-to-eat chocolate chip cookie dough in an ice cream cone, with chocolate shards and gummy candy pieces coming out of the top. It’s a sweet treat that can either be for the kids or their candy-less parents! At $4.50 before tax, parents can also afford to get that coffee they need to go with it!
Brick-or-Treat events will occur Saturdays and Sundays in October through Halloween: Oct. 3-4, 10-11, 17-18, 24-25 and 31. Legoland is open from 10 AM to 6 PM on all event dates. Kids (and maybe parents) will want to get their costumes ready for this great family-friendly Halloween event. LEGOLAND has never been better!
