Thanks to LEGOLAND Discovery Center for inviting my family out for a special preview of the new LEGO City Experience in Grapevine, Texas! We appreciate your partnership with Real & Quirky.
There is one week left to participate in some exciting scheduled activities to help celebrate the BRAND NEW LEGO City Experience at LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Grapevine, Texas. This facility is located in the Grapevine Mills Mall, and is convenient to both Dallas and Fort Worth, TX.
I love taking my kids out there to enjoy being immersed in an entire LEGO world. They like many of the permanent exhibits, such as the rides and building their own cars to race, but we’re always excited to see what’s brand new.
We all really loved the new 4D film in their theater called “LEGO City 4D – Officer in Pursuit!” Let me just warn you – it’s a wet one! In addition to your 3D glasses and watching this cool short film, you’ll experience effects such as water, bubbles, and wind to enhance the movie experience.
We had not visited LEGOLAND in so long that they changed and improved the entrance. The new entryway is exciting and colorful and HUGE. If you haven’t been in a while, this will impress you, too.
Following is the press release announcing all of the fresh finds at LEGOLAND. Be sure to take note that the extra events, such as character meet and greets, are for a limited time – through July 7th! Don’t wait, get over there now!
