THROUGH DECEMBER: Donate a Walmart toy to Toys for Tots at LEGOLAND® and kids get in FREE!

Give back and save this holiday season!

From now until the end of the month, donate a new, unwrapped toy valued at $5 or more from participating Walmart locations at LEGOLAND® Florida Resort and receive a free, one-day child’s ticket (valued at $86.99 plus tax) with the purchase of a one-day adult ticket.

Through the combined efforts of LEGOLAND Florida Resort, Walmart Stores, Inc., Coca-Cola Beverages Florida and Toys for Tots, all donated toys will go to deserving children in Central Florida through Polk County’s Toys for Tots program.

But don’t wait too long, time’s almost up! This Kids Go Free deal is valid through Dec. 31, 2017 — just in time to experience Christmas Bricktacular or Kids’ New Year’s Party! The offer cannot be combined with other discounts or promotions, and adult tickets purchased prior to the toy donation are not eligible to receive the Kids Go Free discount.

Guests will earn one Kids Go Free discount for each qualifying toy purchased and donated, along with the corresponding purchase of an adult ticket at the same time.

You can donate as many toys as you’d like! For example, if you purchase three toys each worth $5 or more at participating Walmart locations and donate them at LEGOLAND Florida Resort, you’ll receive three free child tickets with the purchase of three adult tickets.

In order to receive the “Kids Go Free” discount, the donated toy must be purchased at participating Walmart stores from Tampa to Daytona Beach and dropped off in Toys for Tots collection bins at the theme park entrance. Walmart proof of purchase must be presented along with the donated toy to receive the discount.

FIRST LOOK: The Great LEGO® Race puts YOU in the driver’s seat!

Recently we announced an awesome new experience opening in Spring 2018 that combines cutting-edge virtual reality (VR) technology with roller coaster thrills.

Today, we’re sharing our first look at The Great LEGO® Race, a 360-degree adventure that puts guests in the driver’s seat for a rollicking race against a colorful lineup of LEGO minifigure characters. We’re transforming our existing Project X roller coaster into a high-octane experience unlike anything ever seen in a LEGOLAND® theme park!

Wearing optional VR headsets, riders will experience the action from every direction — up, down, forward, backward and all points in between — in a dazzling environment where everything is made of LEGO bricks. All while riding the roller coaster!

A sneak preview of The Great LEGO Race is available through MackMedia’s free Coastiality app, which lets fans experience the 360-degree action with or without a VR headset. The app is available for iOS, Android and Oculus devices from the App Store, Google Play and the Oculus Store.

The Great LEGO Race is the first virtual reality roller coaster experience designed for kids and represents the first time the LEGO brand and minifigure characters have been integrated with VR technology in a theme park attraction.

With action taking place on the ground and in the air, the wild and wacky race pits guests against LEGO minifigures including a pirate, wizard, surfer and pharaoh as they steer LEGO-built vehicles like a rocket-powered windsurfing rig, a stylish scooter fueled by espresso and an ornately canopied bed (called a “litter”) carried by mummy servants.

Guests must be at least 42 inches tall (1.2m) to ride, or be accompanied by a responsible adult at least 48 inches tall. The VR headsets are designed to fit both adults and children, and can be adjusted for comfort. The VR experience is intended for children 6 and up, and guests can choose to ride without wearing the headset.
