"Brick or Treat" is the whimsical name for Legoland's seasonal events every autumn!
In the slide show above, you're viewing pictures of cute Halloween decorations and fun events at the Legoland theme park in Carlsbad, California! Every October, Legoland throws a Halloween bash that it calls "Brick or Treat" (a play on words, because--of course--Legoland is famous for their whimsical creations made entirely of Lego bricks!) On this page, you'll discover the events you can enjoy when you visit the family-oriented Legoland theme park on weekends in October. Need Legoland tickets?

Legoland Halloween Dates
Legoland has firmed up their Halloween event dates!

Legoland's after-hours extra-fee nighttime party will be held on 4 Saturday evenings and 2 Friday evenings. These dates are: October 4, 11, 17, 18, 24 and 25.

Daytime Legoland Halloween Fun
Trick-or-treating is included with admission every Saturday & Sunday in October!
There are 2 types of Halloween fun you can enjoy at Legoland:
1.) Daytime events, which center around trick-or-treating on Legoland's "Brick or Treat" trail; viewing cute Halloween decorations; and taking family photos in front of Legoland's colorful Halloween backdrops. You may enjoy Legoland's daytime events every Saturday & Sunday during October.
2.) Nighttime events, which focus on a children's Halloween party held in the East Side of the park. This year there will be beefed-up decorations, light shows and events. Brick or Treat nights will still have all of the "usual" party events (show, costume contest) that have always been held in the Medieval-themed "Castle Hill" themed area of Legoland Park. However, this year's event is beefed-up and expanded, and will require an extra fee (even for guests who have attended Legoland earlier in the day.) We'll talk about the Legoland Halloween Party in the section below. For the moment, here are the events you can expect to find during the daytime:
DAYTIME HALLOWEEN FUN AT LEGOLAND PARK:
1.) Trick-or-treating: Visiting the candy give-away stations along the "Brick or Treat Trail" is the highlight of daytime Halloween events at Legoland. Once you enter the park, head to the Castle Hill section of Legoland, which is the theme park's Halloween headquarters. You'll find Legoland's trick or treat stations laid out on the Wilderness Trail...where, during most times of the year, you can stroll along enjoying foxes, fish & other wildlife made entirely of Lego bricks!
"Scary" Lego figures are a highlight of the Brick or Treat trail! This is where you'll find Dracula and Frankenstein made entirely of Lego's! Also, skeletons, a witch, and tombstones. Other decorations line the trick or treat trail, including spiders and webs made of yarn, ghosts and pumpkins.
Trick-or-treats are only given out to children, not teens or adults. Legoland limits the number of times each child may pass through the trick-or-treat line to once per day.
2.) Take pictures at cute Halloween photo backdrops! Should your kids wear their Halloween costumes to Legoland during October? Certainly! Children's costumes are encouraged at Legoland's Halloween celebration! A number of cute backdrops featuring black cats, spooky trees, pumpkins, etc are available for your enjoyment in snapping seasonal photos for your family's album or scrapbook.
What if your child doesn't wear a costume to Legoland---but wants to join the fun? Don't worry--Legoland sells a variety of Halloween costumes that your kids can wear both at Legoland and for trick-or-treating on Halloween night in your neighborhood.
3.) Enjoy Legoland's Halloween decorations: The Castle Hill and East Side sections of the theme park are decorated with cute and non-frightening seasonal decor.
4.) Enjoy Legoland's rides & attractions: During the daytime Legoland Halloween fun, the park's entire list of rides and attractions remain open for your family's enjoyment.
5.) Swim at Legoland's brand-new water park! (Extra fee) Believe it or not, you'll be able to slip, slide & float on the very same day that you go Brick-or-Treating! (Legoland's water park doesn't close until the end of October. In fact, it's the major Southern California water park with the longest operating season!) Water park hours in October: Open Noon to 5 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

Nighttime Legoland Halloween Fun!
Enjoy Legoland's "Brick or Treat Party Nights!"
Every Saturday evening in October (and the 2 Friday evenings mentioned above,) Legoland holds a kid's Halloween bash! There will be an extra fee required to attend this year...above and beyond your regular daytime admission to the theme park.
BRICK OR TREAT PRICES: In past years, this event came included with your daytime ticket price. This year, the Halloween party has been expanded. There will be a $20 fee for those who have attended the park during the daytime. For those who will be coming ONLY in the evening for the party, the ticket price will be $40. For Legoland members (annual pass holders) the price is $15. And, for Merlin Pass members, admission is free.
BRICK OR TREAT ATTRACTIONS: The "spooky" fun begins at 5 pm and lasts until 9 pm.
Events include trick or treating, a light show, a scavenger hunt, Lego building contests and multiple live entertainment options--including a dance party, a magic show and still more options that will keep you more than busy during the party period.
A children's Halloween costume contest is the highlight of the evening. Kids may dress up in their costumes to come to Legoland whether or not they plan to enter.
Legoland Halloween dance party: Your evening of fun at the Legoland evening events will be capped off with live music and dancing! No one needs a partner for this whimsical event...which encourages kids to "get the wiggles out" in a festive way!
Enjoy rides and attractions: Although half of Legoland Park will be closed during the nighttime Halloween party, there are still a selection of rides and attractions available for your enjoyment.The choice will include the popular Lego Technic roller coaster, the Bionicle Blaster, and all your favorites on the east side of the park.
Fireworks! As a super-duper ending to a wonderful evening of fun, a dazzling Legoland display of fireworks will top off the evening!
