LEGOLAND Florida Decks The Halls With Lego Bricks At Christmas Bricktacular
by James Coulter
LEGOLAND Florida guests will be able to see plenty of red, white, and green—LEGO bricks, that is!—during its annual Christmas Bricktacular event all this month.
Presented by Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas, this month-long event will allow children and adults of all ages to enjoy holiday fun with sweet treats, fun activities, and live entertainment, including a chance to meet the jolly old man in red bricks himself.
This year includes the all-new “Holly Jolly Jubilee” interactive show (presented by Wells Fargo) where guests can help Santa’s elves prepare for the big day at Santa’s workshop.
Once the sun goes down, the Christmas lights go up at the 30-foot tall LEGO Christmas tree during the nightly LEGO Christmas Tree Spectacular, featuring a flurry of falling snow flakes and a dazzling display of laser lights.
The Christmas activities will be hosted at the park on select dates every Saturday and Sunday, and from Saturday to Tuesday on the week of Christmas Day.
Here are some of the holly jolly family-fun that guests of all ages can look forward to at the park:
LEGO Christmas Tree Spectacular (5:45 p.m. to park closing)
Rock around the 30-foot tall Christmas tree (or rather, the Brickmas tree!) as it lights up in a fantastic synchronized light show, complete with flurries of snow flake falling from the sky.
Santa Helper’s Scavenger Hunt (10 a.m. to 6 p.m.)
All throughout Miniland U.S.A., Santa Claus and his elves are appearing here and there and everywhere, especially on the rooftops. Keep a sharp eye out for them, and feel free to report their whereabouts for a chance to win the official contest.
Letters To Santa (11 a.m. to 4 p.m.)
