Disclosure: I received free tickets to this event in exchange for my honest opinion.
This past weekend my family and I had the pleasure of attending Brick Fest Live at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA. Everyone wanted to get in on the Lego fun because it was very crowded. As soon as we entered there were rows of tables set up with amazing creations that Lego fans had bought to share with everyone. We enjoyed this because there were truly some terrific creations. My son especially liked the creations that included trains.
There were many activities for children to enjoy. For instance, after checking out the creations, we stood in line to play mini golf. Then we headed over to the Video Game Arena where people could sit down and play Lego video games.
We spent most of our time at the Red Brick Pit where kids could sit in a pit of red Legos and build as much as they wanted. I liked that the pit wasn’t too crowded and the kids have enough room to move around and play in their own space. Once we finally got our kids away from the pit we went to the Glow Zone. Inside the Glow Zone was a row of creations that glowed in the dark, which was pretty cool.
After all of this, the kids started to become restless. Even though there was a Reading Rest Stop where the kids could’ve relaxed and read on over-sized pillows, we decided that it would be best to leave. While heading out we saw more Lego creations that we did not see when we first entered. There were even people dressed as various characters from movies such as Star Wars and Ghostbusters.
Some activities that we had planned to do but didn’t because the kids were tired from having so much fun are the Mosaic Building Station, Build Wall, and Derby Races. This was definitely a great family outing. There was something for everyone to enjoy. Next year we plan to come back and do the activities that we did not get a chance to do this time.
