LEGOLand Anyone?

LEGOLand Anyone?

Post  vyronwynter on Fri Mar 09, 2012 3:22 am

Hello Club,

I received a mailer from LEGOLand Florida about the upcoming events for this year. I am looking to hit two of the events. One in October which will include the First Year Anniversary and "Brick or Treat." The other is a visit in December to see the "Christmas Bricktacular." Both look to be more than just kiddie attractions.

I looked into flights and find they are running about $250 for a 3-4 day round trip fare (over a weekend.) I am thinking I can get the same housing option as my last visit. So I am projecting a cost basis of about $300 a visit. This will vary a little depending upon how many people we have going down.

This is a little way off, but I want to put the idea out there. If interested let me know. Otherwise keep the didacticism to yourself.

I may be interested. I still have an annual pass burning a hole in my pocket. Wink

NO. I think this would be an important educational trip for all of us. Those who have never been on an airplane can study the effects of air pressure on ear drums during the plain ride. Once there at LegoLand we can observe colour variations in bricks, and contemplate the effects of the weather upon ABS plastics. A careful study of the pictures that were taken during the grand opening is in order, so that they can be compared to the current condition of the models. This will allow us to study not only the fading and erosion of the bricks, but also how well they withstand the onslaught of thousands of tiny hands attempting to pry them apart.
