Legoland Discovery Center Westchester Holiday Bricktacular

December 21, 2019 8:00 am

It’s always fun to check out the classic holiday happenings in and around the city. But it’s almost more fun to discover new ones that you can make part of your holiday tradition. And we’ve got a great new one for you–and we don’t use the word “great” lightly. Imagine combining one of the world’s most popular (and truthfully, most fun) toys with an interactive experience and a holiday twist. Happily, someone has done that, and the result is the Legoland Discovery Center Westchester’s Holiday Bricktacular. Huzzah!

Why attend a holiday event where you have to stay seated?

At the Legoland Discovery Center Westchester Holiday Bricktacular, you become part of the experience! The Bricktacular has a number of different elements: A Miniland scavenger hunt; a Creative Workshop where visitors can build holiday projects using mosaics; and minifigure trading with staff members. (Start collecting now, people, if you haven’t already.)

Plus, visitors can see Miniland New York all gussied up as a winter wonderland, and also meet a Master Builder (just like The Lego Movie!) and help him create holiday-themed creations like snowmen and snowflakes. The experience is there through December 29, and, perhaps most important, dressing up in ugly Christmas sweaters is highly encouraged (you know you want to). Families love all the interactive activities, with one young visitor stating: “The most fun Christmas place. A hundred stars. You get to play with Legos!”

Lego Facts

  • Lego is one of the most popular toy brands in the world. The name comes from the Danish words “leg godt,” which means “play well.”
  • The company started in the workshop of a carpenter named Ole Kirk Christiansen. He started making wooden toys in 1932; in 1947, Lego started making plastic toys. An early version of the interlocking bricks was introduced in 1949. They were originally called “automatic binding bricks.” (Not quite as catchy.)
  • In May 2013, the largest model ever made—5 million bricks!—was displayed in New York City. Any guesses as to what it was? (If you said a Lego X-Wing fighter, you’d be correct.)
  • The Lego Movie made more than 469 million dollars worldwide.
