Age Specific / Kids

LEGOLAND New York Resort debuted its first Brick-or-Treat, a not-so-scary Halloween party built for kids! The event runs Saturdays and Sundays in October, 3–6 p.m., transforming each of the park’s seven LEGO-themed lands into family-friendly Halloween havens.

 

Halloween characters like Count de Bricks, Madame Purplepeak, Zappo the Mummy and Monster Mac greet guests — and those guests 12 and under can show off their awesome costumes at Brick Street Stage. Judges will select a winner in each of the following categories: Most LEGO Themed, Spookiest, Most Imaginative and Funny. One lucky costumed park-goer will be awarded Best of the Best, and kids can visit six trick-or-treating stations along two dedicated paths.

 

“Like all our rides and attractions, Brick-or-Treat is built for kids ages two through 12. Instead of big scares, we want families to enjoy a safe, fun, and memorable Halloween holiday,” said Stephanie Johnson, divisional director, LEGOLAND New York Resort. “Autumn is the best time to take in the beauty of the Hudson Valley, and after spending a day with us dressed up in costume, families can keep the festive fun going by booking a Halloween sleepover at LEGOLAND® Hotel.”

 

Families can also experience the park’s top rides and attractions. The nearby LEGOLAND New York Hotel will also be decorated for Halloween and will feature special entertainment.
