Though there are plenty of “premium” Halloween events at Florida theme parks like Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens, Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios and Mickey’s Not-so-Scary Halloween Party at Disney, there are a few seasonal events going on this year that are not hard ticketed and are included with admission.
Here are two fun events you can check out this October at Orlando-area theme parks that don't require you to plunk down any additional money (beyond park admission, naturally) to attend.
1. Brick or Treat at Legoland Florida
Legoland's annual Halloween event takes place every Saturday and Sunday in October beginning at 3pm and features plenty of activities primarily aimed at kids under 12. The fun kicks off in the Miniland USA section of the park, where kids can take part in a spooky scavenger hunt and search for ghosts and goblins that have invaded the famous minature brick cities in this area.
In addition, kids can go trick-or-treating along a special “brick-or-treat” trail featuring plenty of goodies, sweet treats and other surprises for kids to fill their bags with. As well as these treat stations, LEGO fans can also find brick building activities along the trail and can also stop by the largest LEGO Jack-O-Lantern in the world. There will also be an area where kids can help contribute to to construction of an eight-foot tall super brick ghost model.
If your little ones enjoy getting dressed up for Halloween, Legoland Florida’s Brick or Treat event also includes Emmet’s Everything is Awesome Costume Contest, which takes place at the Wells Fargo 4D Theater. Kids can enter the contest in one of three age groups (0-4 years 5-7 years 8-12 years) and can actually win LEGO-themed prizes. Finally, the Brick or Treat event caps off with a nightly dance party featuring plenty of pop music and walk-around characters for little ones to interact with.
Though the Brick or Treat event at Legoland Florida may not be as elaborate as some of the other events around Central Florida (and as a weekend-only event, you won’t have as many opportunities to check this one out), it’s a great fit for kids, and best of all, the event is included with Legoland admission!
