Fall Activities at LEGOLAND

Category : entertainment, family, Featured, Uncategorized

 photo legolandhappyfall_zps9025ad69.pngEvery Friday from 2-4 p.m. in November, LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Grapevine holds special fall-themed events for visitors. For a $1 donation to Merlin’s Magic Wand, visitors can build turkey, horse and cactus minifigures, plus they’ll get a special sheriff’s badge upon admission. Plus, there’s a costume contest: every Friday, the best-dressed cowboy and cowgirl will each receive a free fall-themed cookie cake.

Regular admission still applies for this special event. You can buy your tickets online to guarantee admission, or you can pay at LEGOLAND. If you go this route, you can bring 5 canned goods and get $5 off an individual admission. (This offer is only good in November.)

LEGOLAND is at 3000 Grapevine Mills Parkway, inside Grapevine Mills Mall.
