The Lego Creativity Tour came to Columbus recently and we had the opportunity to experience it a few weeks ago. There were several sessions that you had a chance to buy tickets for and we went to the first session on Friday night. Upon entry, you first run into the Lego Model Museum. It is there that you could get photo ops with the life size Lego Models: Iron man, Cinderella, and Superman and many more!
After the sculptures, we headed to the Lego Art Gallery area. It’s here that you are given a Lego square tile where you could create your own masterpiece with Legos! Then, you got to put it up on the Lego Art Gallery Wall. (Check out Val’s SMAC logo!)
Next, we proceeded to the Lego Big Brick Pile! How much fun is it to build and play with Legos all around you?!?! It wasn’t long before my daughter helped to bury Valerie’s son in the Legos!
There was a Lego Friends, Lego Community, and Bionicle Lego areas in which you built something small on a tile and then they featured your item on the front tables. In return, they gave you a small bag of Legos or posters to take home with you.
After that, we headed to the Lego Race Ramp area where our kids built Lego cars and raced one another!
The two places that we did not get to participate because the line was too long was the Lego racing tower and the Brick Battle Zone where they were racing one another to make the fastest brick pizza .
At the very end of the session at the Brick Battle Zone, people started to pile as many Legos in between the two stands. The emcee kept piling on hand weights to see how much weight it took to drop it. We watched it go to 70 lbs. before it dropped!
Finally, there was a Lego Retail store where you could purchase Legos too. Towards the end of the session, more people were heading towards the store.
I didn’t think that we would spend more than an hour here but we did wind up staying the entire time. Ticket prices were around $20 but it is worth it to see your kids building and having fun without electronics! Val and I would definitely take our kids here again!
