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.

Tip #2: Pick up an event guide

There’s plenty happening and the free event guide is your handy guide to all the holiday gifts we have in store for you. Learn about everything from brick-tastic shows to festive snacks, special offers to dazzling LEGO® photo ops like our giant new wreath or cheerful reindeer!  Pick one up as you enter the park.

Tip #3: Stay and play at LEGOLAND Hotel

Surround yourself in a Christmas wonderland at LEGOLAND Hotel. Exclusive activities are available free of charge for hotel guests during Christmas Bricktacular, such as decorating cookies with Mrs. Claus, creating a special holiday LEGO® model with a Master Model Builder or listening to a Christmas story during a stroll on the Christmas Boardwalk Tour.

Tip #4: Enjoy storytime with Mrs. Claus

In the theme park, listen to Mrs. Claus tell an interactive holiday story multiple times on each date of Christmas Bricktacular. Then write a letter to Santa and send it all the way to the North Pole. A little elf told us that Santa will reply to every LEGOLAND letter!

Tip #5: Save shopping for last

Do your shopping at the end of the day and you won’t have to carry your purchases around while having fun! Or, use our complimentary package pickup service if you shop throughout the day and have your purchases waiting for you to pick up on your way out.

COMING IN SPRING 2018: The Great LEGO® Race to transform Project X roller coaster into supercharged virtual reality adventure

The Great LEGO RacePrepare to take a ride on the wildest LEGO® race ever imagined when cutting-edge virtual reality technology combines with roller coaster thrills in an exhilarating new attraction opening in Spring 2018 at LEGOLAND® Florida Resort!

Developed under the supervision of Merlin Magic Making, our parent company’s global creative and delivery division, The Great LEGO Race will transform our existing Project X roller coaster into an exciting, high-octane experience that puts kids in the driver’s seat and asks, “Are you brave enough to face, race and beat the best of the best in all of LEGO world?”

The Great LEGO RaceFeaturing a colorful lineup of racers drawn from the ranks of the popular LEGO minifigure mystery assortments, The Great LEGO Race pits riders in a rollicking race against wild, brick-built contraptions driven by Trendsetter, Pharaoh, Surfer Girl, Wizard and Pirate Captain, including a rocket-powered surfboard and a stylish scooter fueled by espresso.

Wearing VR headsets, guests 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.

The adventure begins as guests approach the ride’s bold new entry portal as the sounds of roaring engines fill the air. Nearby, the coaster’s queue will resemble a pre-race space where pit crews for each of the five LEGO racers are preparing for the competition, plus interactive, hands-on elements to entertain waiting riders.

“The Great LEGO Race was inspired by the way kids play with LEGO toys at home,” said Candy Holland, senior creative director for Merlin Magic Making, which designs and develops attractions for Merlin sites around the world. “It’s a unique LEGO adventure that lets kids enter an epic imaginary world made entirely from LEGO bricks, featuring a host of different themes and fun LEGO characters, all mixed up together.”
