What will it look like? Come to Brick or Treat and see for yourself. Here’s a hint: The mini Vlad shown here was built as a reference for the giant model to be built in the theme park.
During each Brick or Treat date, we encourage kids of all ages to help our Master Model Builders construct ginormous LEGO® models of Vladimir the Vampyre in LEGO® Kingdoms, a humongous ghost in Fun Town and a mystery mosaic guests have been building all month in The Beginning.

The LEGOLAND® Florida Resort team tasted victory Oct. 16 by capturing the coveted People’s Choice Award during the first-ever Culinary Cook-Off as part of the 15th annual Lake Mirror Classic Auto Festival.
Lake Region High School students Rebecca Radney, Taylor Waltz and Allison Klimaszewski joined chefs from LEGOLAND Florida Resort to win the People’s Choice Award at the first-ever Culinary Cook-Off during the 15th annual Lake Mirror Classic Auto Festival.
Held at the historic Magnolia Building in downtown Lakeland, Fla., the cooking competition partnered several LEGOLAND Florida Resort chefs with three students from Lake Region High School in Eagle Lake, Fla., all to raise money for Junior Achievement of Tampa Bay, Polk District.
According to James Boheim, executive chef at LEGOLAND Hotel and a JA board member, the community event was a great success.
“It was wonderful to watch these students take so much pride in their dishes,” he said. “I look forward to supporting the growth of these talented young leaders at more events in the future.”
Can you believe it? LEGOLAND Florida Resort turns 4 today! And my, how we’ve grown.
Adrian Jones, general manager of LEGOLAND Florida Resort, celebrates the grand opening of Central Florida’s newest theme park on Oct. 15, 2011.
On Oct. 15, 2011, our general manager, Adrian Jones, welcomed thousands of eager guests gathered at the theme park’s entrance arch. “Wow. What an amazing sight,” he marveled before counting down to a blizzard of confetti that marked the park’s official grand opening.
Since then, 1,460 days later, we’ve grown to include LEGOLAND Water Park, LEGOLAND Hotel and uniquely LEGO® expansion areas such as The LEGO® World of Chima™, DUPLO® Valley and Heartlake City. And we’re just getting started, with more kid-friendly fun on the way.
To the millions of guests from around the world who’ve visited us during the past four years, thank you. And to the millions more yet to come, welcome.
Three Lake Region High School students from Eagle Lake, Fla., are teaming up with three LEGOLAND® Florida Resort chefs this week to prepare an appetizer, entrée and dessert that will compete in a fundraiser for Junior Achievement of Tampa Bay, Polk District.
On Friday, Oct. 16, their creative cuisine will be featured at the 15th annual Lake Mirror Classic Auto Festival in Lakeland, Fla., during the first Culinary Cook-Off, a competition between local chefs that JA plans to make an annual event.
The nonprofit organization relies on volunteers to share their personal experiences and bring classroom curriculum to life. James Boheim, executive chef at LEGOLAND Hotel, recently was named a JA board member and says he looks forward to sharing his knowledge with students.
“At LEGOLAND Florida Resort, we’ve created a world where imagination and creativity thrive,” he said. “Opportunities like this help us to bring those values into the community where we live.”
The Culinary Cook-Off will take place Oct. 16 from 6-9 p.m. at the historic Magnolia Building in downtown Lakeland. Advance tickets are $30 each and include tastings of all three competition categories (appetizer, entrée and dessert), plus two drink vouchers.
Part of the spooky fun of Brick or Treat is meeting exclusive LEGO® characters who only come out in October. This year, the Halloween event built for kids has expanded with all-new fun, including two never-before-seen LEGO characters: Mad Scientist and Frankenstein.
Exclusive LEGO characters you can only meet during Brick or Treat.
Returning favorites Wanda the Witch, Mortimor the Mummy and Vladimir the Vampyre also will greet LEGOLAND Florida Resort guests each date of Brick or Treat. Here’s where you can find them all:

This month, we’re once again partnering with the National Fire Protection Association to host Firefighter Fridays at LEGOLAND Florida Resort. On four consecutive Fridays starting Oct. 9, kids can meet and interact with their real-life heroes. And we’re not talking about our Master Model Builders!
Celebrate Firefighter Fridays with a ride on Rescue Academy.
The fun kicks off Oct. 9 as we celebrate Fire Prevention Week with NFPA. This year’s theme is “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep,” which encourages everyone to install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of your home, including the basement. Larger homes may need more alarms.
Highlights will include opportunities to learn about fire safety from local firefighters, a LEGO® City-themed brick build, a search-and-rescue photo op, a passport-stamp drawing for a LEGO prize pack and a high-spirited Rescue Academy competition in which three lucky families will be picked to compete against real firefighters. After all the excitement, first responders visiting the park can get a discount on cool treats from Firehouse Ice Cream by showing their identification.
First responders can receive a discount at Firehouse Ice Cream on Friday, Oct. 9 with ID.
Firefighter Fridays continue on Oct. 16, 23 and 30. On each date, families can learn fire safety tips, interact with local firefighters and enjoy giveaways.
Here’s a look at some of the fun from our Oct. 9 kickoff event:
