Last week, the Allen family from Michigan enjoyed their Grand Prize from the #BrickOrTreatContest we sponsored with HLN’s “Morning Express with Robin Meade” cable news show several months ago. Making their second visit to LEGOLAND® Florida Resort, dad Mike, mom Melissa, 12-year-old Cameron and 11-year-old Faith got to enjoy all the new fun added since their last trip, including the all-new LEGOLAND Hotel.
Here’s what Cameron had to say about it:
Our whole family had a blast at LEGOLAND Florida Resort! From the moment we stepped off the plane and saw a chauffeur with our name on an iPad, we had a lot of fun. The hotel was awesome!! The rooms were so detailed and cool! We were in a Kingdoms room, and there was a bag of LEGO® items just waiting on the bed for us! We also got to open a treasure chest in the room with more LEGO surprises!
We were able to meet with the Master Model Builders and WOW, that was so cool to see how things are put together for the park and how they store all of the LEGO pieces.
Faith and Cameron were delighted to find a bag filled with LEGO items waiting for them in their hotel room, part of the #BrickOrTreatContest Grand Prize.
There was a LEGO building contest the first night there (which I actually ended up winning) and we met some new friends from Flushing, Mich., and hung out with them all night and then went to the water park with them the next day. The first slides Fischer, Holden, Faith and I went on were the Splash Out and they were a blast!
Cameron, left, called Project X in the LEGO Technic area his favorite among the park’s themed roller coasters.
“The LEGO Movie™ 4D A New Adventure” was also really cool — there was a lot of water being sprayed at us! All of the coasters were awesome! My favorite ride in the park was Project X — it was so much fun! I really enjoyed going into the LEGO stores and trading minifigs with all of the Model Citizens. We had an amazing time and cannot wait until we go back again.
