CARLSBAD, Calif.  – LEGOLAND® California is polishing up “Brick-or-Treat Party Nights” – its  upcoming kids’ Halloween celebration taking place every weekend in October. Fireworks are being added. Returning fan favorites include the interactive show “Mail Order Monsters,” Brick-or-Treat Trails and the Brick-or-Treat Trail Bonus station at SEA LIFE™ Carlsbad Aquarium.

Every Saturday and Sunday in October (Oct. 1 & 2, 8 & 9, 15 & 16, 22 & 23, 29 and 30), children 12 and under can trick-or-treat on the Brick-or-Treat Trail in the Enchanted Walk gathering goodies such as LEGO® Club Magazine, delicious treats and other surprises. This kid-sized cul-de-sacs features seven LEGO-themed treat stations and offer a safe, fun and entertaining trick-or-treating experience.  

Then every Saturday in October from 5 to 9 p.m., the family theme park transforms into a not-too-spooky Halloween haven for Brick-or-Treat Party Nights featuring costume contests, nighttime trick-or-treating on one of two Brick or Treat Trails, festive music, entertainment, interaction with the “Boo Crew”, the animated light show “Spirits of Halloween” after sundown and fireworks cap off the night at 9 p.m. 

Several “monstrously fun” areas of LEGOLAND are open late for Party Nights Oct. 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29, including Land of Adventure, Castle Hill, the Imagination Zone and Park favorites Coastersaurus, Safari Trek and Fairy Tale Brook. Children can also enjoy ghoulish activities like Hubble Bubble’s Dance Party, the Haunted Hideaways and a LEGOLAND pumpkin patch building activity plus glow-in-the-dark treats for nighttime fun. Children will also love interacting with the “Boo Crew” including Silly Scarecrows, Howlin’ Howie, Jester Funny Bones and Count Brickula as they “boo-gie” down during Party Nights.

At SEA LIFE Aquarium, the Southern California Tide Pool is spooked with a bonus Brick-or-Treat station. Kids will receive candy and other surprises while learning about the “monsters” of the deep every Saturday and Sunday in October.

The popular costume contest returns to Brick-or-Treat Party Nights where children 12 and under show off their costumes in three categories including Heroes, LEGO-themed and Creative. Prize packages including LEGOLAND Resort Memberships and souvenirs, LEGO toys and gifts are awarded to the winner in each category.

In the live stage show, “Mail Order Monsters”, 10-year old Princess Playwright orders some delightfully scary monsters for the Brick-or-Treat celebration but the mischievous Jester Funny Bones conjures up a spell to make the monsters as sweet as candy. Guests have to help the Princess retrain her monsters  and break the spell − all in time for the big Halloween celebration!

Every day throughout the month of October, families can climb aboard a giant LEGO jack-o-lantern to capture a fun and memorable photo. The jack-o-lantern, which is more than 7 feet wide, is made of 22,000 DUPLO® bricks and weighs 850 pounds.

All Brick-or-Treat and Party Nights festivities are included in the price of regular one-day admission to LEGOLAND California. During Brick-or-Treat, LEGOLAND is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. SEA LIFE is staying open until 8 p.m. on Saturdays for those wanting to explore the Aquarium after dark. Guests can pre-purchase Brick-or-Treat tickets online which include SEA LIFE for $55 and receive a complimentary second-day ticket valid through December 25. Guests planning to attend Brick-or-Treat Party Nights only can purchase special tickets online or at the front gate in advance for just $25 at or call 760-918-LEGO.
