Saturday we visited LEGOLAND to see
their Fireworks Spectacular, it was quite something to behold. I would definitely recommend getting the 3D
glasses for the children (£1.50 each) so they can see the bricks; my eldest
just kept saying over and over again “Whoa”.
He really was very
impressed with it all, apparently it is the best firework display he has ever
seen. Accompanying the display we could
hear the LEGO Nexo Knights having some kind of battle, but as we were
positioned so high up we could not see what exactly that involved – if you want to see more your probably best off heading to one of the official viewing area’s around Miniland and Lego City. This one by the stage looked promising.

had placed ourselves strategically near the exit so we could make a quick escape out of the
car park when it had finished, although the rides were open until 8pm. We would have taken advantage of the later opening time instead but the weather had been quite bad an hour before the fireworks started (we were a bit cold and wet!) and after being thoroughly entertained by
the fireworks we were eager to head off home.
The fireworks lasted about 15 minutes but it felt much longer, LEGOLAND
kept the momentum going and it was so beautiful to watch. I really liked the pretty rockets that would
sparkle after exploding.
I do like the consideration that LEGOLAND have placed in ensuring the emptying
of the car park will be well managed; they even had temporary traffic lights at
the roundabout as you leave LEGOLAND.
The fireworks continue on the 22nd, 23rd, 28th,
29th of October and the 5th of November so if you can time your visit on one of those dates.
a great time to visit LEGOLAND at the moment, not only do you have the fireworks
but also the Brick or Treat event which officially starts from the 17th
of October although we had a small taste of it on Saturday.

The boys liked walking around the Enchanted
Forest, which was dotted with pumpkins and had a few additional activities happening. Creating a LEGO pumpkin and helping with the
Halloween mosaic were definite
continues to pleasantly surprise us with something new and magical to do each
and every visit. I happened to notice a
sign saying Ninjago World is opening in 2017… squeal! Any excuse for a return visit.
