Lego lovers! Don’t miss this Spring’s Lego event in Tacoma at Freighthouse Square, a great event for your spring break with your kids! My kiddo has so much fun at these, and I promise your Lego fan will, too. Read on for some pics from a past event and how to get your tickets-I have a code to save you even more on the Groupon! If you just want to go straight to the Groupon to purchase your tickets, just cruise to the bottom of the post!
The event features a giant room full of Lego and Lego models in the lower floor of Freighthouse Square-that sort of funky building across from the transit center. Kids can see creations by master builder Dan Parker and his crew and build to their heart’s content. They’ll also have lots of opportunities to interact with Lego artisans. We stayed for three (Yes, three) hours at the last event, and if it had been up to my boys, we would have stayed until 8PM!
As you can see, there is plenty of room for the kids to work and tons and tons of Lego. It’s not just a random assortment, either. There are intricate themed displays and lots of other pieces to inspire.
Admission for kids and grown ups is 10.00 a piece at the door, but you can save by getting the Groupon! The family deals are the best. If you get admission for three, it’s just 5.00 a piece! Do NOT get admission for one unless there is really only one of you going, because that’s 9.00. It would be cheaper to get the admission for 3 even if there are only two of you. You got that, right? There is also a birthday party option! Note that the admission is by date-so choose the one you want carefully before you check out. Pay no attention to the bit that says, “Pierce County Asylum.” They just help Dan host this event. There is nothing scary here.
AND right now if you use the code 20NOW you can save another 20%! That means you could get admission for 3 for 12.00 or admission for five for 19.00! I know we had a bit of debate over whether this price was worth it last time. If you have a young kiddo who would be bored after 20 minutes or so, then, yeah….stay home and play with your own Lego. But for any grade schooler with a passion for building, I do think it’s worth it. I spent less than I would have spent on a movie last time and felt way better about how we were spending the day!
Admission is come and go, so you’re welcome to go get lunch and come back. I’ll tell you straight up that you will get bored way before your kids, so either build with them, or bring a book or a pal. Seriously-this would be a great chance to catch up! There are some things for sale inside, though not a ton, but you may want to discuss that with your kids ahead of time.
To get your Groupons for admission you can head (My affiliate link) right here to Groupon. Note: If the 20NOW code doesn’t work, look at the top of the Groupon page to see if there is another one. They seem to be giving an extra 20% off pretty much all the time now.
