Spring Break starts in a few weeks for many school districts here in Southern California. The weather is certainly cooperating for many who plan to be outdoors. From water activities to museums to theme parks, there are so many family fun activities to do. One that I would recommend is to visit Legoland® to watch The LEGO® Movie™ 4D.
As a Legoland® Insider, we were invited to watch the premier of The LEGO® Movie™ 4D. The boys were beyond thrilled. They love, love, LOVE anything that has anything to do with Legos®. They are also fans of the movie and was excited to find out that they were going to watch another one…well, sort of a new Lego® movie.
The LEGO® Movie™ 4D
- Reunites Emmet, Wyldstyle, Unikitty, MetalBeard, and Benny on a new adventure
- Introduces new character Risky Business
- 4D effects includes wind, water, and fog
- Directed by Rob Schrab
- Exclusively shown at LEGOLAND® theme parks and LEGOLAND® Discovery Centers
- Run time is 12½ minutes
In order to get the most out of the 4D experience, we sat on the fifth row, as close to the center as we could. You will definitely feel all the elements sitting this close. I remember sitting in the center but way up at the top the last time we watched a 4D movie at Legoland. We couldn’t feel anything. The boys were kind of disappointed. This time, they got the full effect of watching a 4D movie, and so did I. The theater was already cold, but got colder when wind blew on my face and I got spritzed by water. It was so much fun!
I kept my eye on Little B at the beginning of the movie to make sure he was doing okay. Although he is used to watching movies in movie theaters, including the one at Legoland®, I wanted to make sure that the sound wasn’t too loud for him or that his 3D glasses were not falling off his face (it’s a one size fits all type glasses). I was concerned for nothing. He did fine. He thoroughly enjoyed the movie as well as his big brother. We all did.
Similar to the original movie, the plot was simple enough for kids to follow along with. The dialogue catered to everyone, with jokes that cleverly appealed to adults as well. For now, this movie experience will have to satisfy The LEGO® Movie™ fans until the sequel comes in May 2018. Don’t worry, two new full features are set to open in 2017, LEGO Batman™ and NINJAGO. The whole family is anxiously awaiting for both of those.
As hubby and Big B’s spring breaks are not at the same time this year, we will not be traveling very far from home. We will probably visit museums, take nature walks, visit the lake and beach, and schedule play dates with friends. Hopefully, we can stop by Legoland®, too.
What are your plans for spring break this year?
