LEGO fan Sage Stuchell, 10, was one of three Grand Prize winners of last fall’s #BrickOrTreatContest.
One of the many VIPs who joined us for the recent red carpet, world premiere of “The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure” was 10-year-old Sage Stuchell of Petoskey, Mich., making his very first visit to a LEGOLAND® theme park. Sage was one of three lucky Grand Prize winners of the #BrickOrTreatContest we sponsored with HLN’s “Morning Express with Robin Meade” cable news show last fall.
During a whirlwind visit to LEGOLAND Florida Resort, Sage and his family — dad Stephen, mom Emily and 7-year-old sister Sienna — enjoyed the theme park, a private session with our Master Model Builders, accommodations in our brand-new LEGOLAND Hotel and an invitation to be our special guests for the world premiere of the new attraction.

How was it? Here’s what Sage had to say after returning home:
I liked LEGOLAND® very, very much.
I could tell the first night we stepped out of the car at the hotel it was the best hotel I’ve ever been to. There was a huge LEGO® clock and a dragon all made out of LEGO. Behind the front desk was a whole wall full of minifigures and a big pit of LEGO to build in the middle of the lobby.

Then we went into the elevator. What? A disco party! We got one of Brickbeard’s pirate rooms and I thought the LEGO builds on the walls were very cool. There was a LEGO lizard, spider, cannonball, parrot, mouse and pirate artifacts. We decoded a lock and opened a treasure chest full of LEGO loot.
When I saw the LEGOLAND theme park I thought it was the most amazing place I’ve ever seen! All the rides were awesome! My favorites were The Dragon and Coastersaurus, because they are very high and I like to be up high. There is even an Island in the Sky.
I thought Miniland was going to be smaller but it was huge! So much to see. The Star Wars battle of Geonosis was super realistic. The Darth Vader, Darth Maul and R2-D2 were life-size and very accurately built. I was very impressed!

We watched Brickbeard’s water ski show and ate Granny’s Apple Fries in the Florida sunshine. My sister loved Heartlake City and Mia’s Riding Adventure. We even got our LEGO driver’s license.
The “LEGO Movie™ 4D” premiere was my FAVORITE! There were so many awesome treats like cookies and cupcakes! I saw many of the Nickelodeon and Disney stars I see on TV every day. It made me feel very special to be part of the red carpet event.
During the movie, I loved the all “4D” effects, especially when the lemonade stand squirted us! It felt like I could touch everything, and LEGO were right in my face. I loved meeting all the LEGO characters, even Lord Risky.
I couldn’t believe all the bricks in the LEGO Master Model Builders’ workshop. It was cool to see where and how Master Model Builders work. All the hard work the designers do makes it fun to put together these amazing LEGO sets.
LEGOLAND is the best! I can’t wait to come back!
