Calling all LEGO enthusiasts! Guess what? I have some incredible news for those of you living in and around Central OHIO!! The LEGO Creativity Tour, Powered by LEGO KidsFest, comes to Columbus, OH this November.
The LEGO Creativity Tour, powered by the team that runs the popular North American LEGO KidsFest tour,offers eight identical sessions. The LEGO Creativity Tour will offer children of all ages an opportunity to build, create and enjoy an immersive LEGO experience through engaging play areas, family-oriented building activities and more.
Some of the activities in the 118,000 square-foot space include:
We got to enter the event space 2 hours early due to a tv interview! We were super excited for the chance to tour the space before everyone else got there! We took tons of pictures and loved every second of our preview. We could create an entire book of pictures but we opted to just share some collages that Princess created for this post.
* LEGO Model Museum: walk among life-sized models made from LEGO bricks
The Lego animals were amazing to all of us but especially Lil’ Red who has never been to an actual zoo, yet. He has had lots of experience reading about animals and loved the giraffe and the baby gorilla.
* Race Ramps: build a custom car, then race it down the ramp against friends and family
* Challenge Zone: the whole family is on the hook to show off their creative building skills in this emceed challenge
* Construction Zone: enjoy a creative build, play, and display area
* LEGO DUPLO: the youngest builders can explore building their imaginations and so many ways to play with DUPLO bricks
Lil’ Red loved being able to play and build without having to worry about bothering his older siblings. There were multiple build stations in the Lego Juniors area both on the ground and at low tables perfect for younger children.
Princess was super excited to see an entire area dedicated to Lego Friends! Her brothers even built somethings while they waited for her to complete her build and picture taking session!
More awesome events that we did but didn’t get good pictures of:
* Brick Battle Zone: join a team and compete in fun activities like relay races, tower speed build and bridge building contests
* Big Brick Pile: dive into the largest pile of LEGO bricks ever seen to build something amazing
* LEGO Art Gallery: create a custom masterpiece and display it for all to see
* Monochromatic Builds: limiting the materials to one color and one size creates amazing results
Are the tickets a good value? Glad you asked!
At first the price per ticket seems a little bit pricey but upon investigation it’s truly a deal! You know I am uber frugal and love sales, deals, coupons, and freebies so you know it really means something when I say that the Lego events are great deals. If your family participates in all four areas that offer free sets then you are bringing home WAY more than $25 worth of Lego’s. We got a Ninjago character, 2 Lego Friends, a Lego City Character and a Lego Creator Cat!
I would highly recommend attending a LEGO event especially the LEGO Creativity Tour! We hope to be a apart of the 2016 tour for the KidsFest coming to Cleveland in November 2016!
“Since we began the LEGO KidsFest six years ago, we have been flooded with requests to visit more cities and regions across the country, but they don’t all have the space to host a KidsFest,” said Vince Rubino, senior events manager at LEGO Systems, Inc. “The LEGO Creativity Tour leverages some of the best of the LEGO KidsFest experience in a more flexible format to enable us to visit with even more families with an interactive, hands-on LEGO celebration.”
