Brick or Treat

Treat your little monsters to a spook-tacular short break at the LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort this October half term!

You’re invited to Lord Vampyre’s spooky haunted house, help him celebrate the arrival of Brick or Treat in the LEGOLAND® neighbourhood this October.

Be greeted by joke-telling LEGO® gargoyles and talking statues before taking your seat in the magnificent banquet hall which will swing into life, turning the room upside down and transforming right before your very eyes.

There’s plenty for the family to sink their teeth into during our Brick or Treat event. Join us from 28th September 2023 for the ultimate Halloween party with themed activities, fang-tastic rides, plus live shows and attractions!

There’s also the return of the Brick or Treat Trail which is back, bigger than ever. Monster Rocker needs your help to find the missing items on his shopping list for Lord Vampyre’s Halloween party. Once little monsters have tracked the party pieces down around the Resort, they can head to the Creepy Crypt, where Monster Rocker’s Butler is on hand to give out treat filled goody bags. Plus there’s the chance to join Lord Vampyre and his monster friends at the topsy-turvy new Haunted House Monster Party ride, and all of the Resort’s awesome rides, shows and attractions to enjoy.

With so many monster surprises to discover, families can book a Spook-tacular Sleepover at the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort Hotel or the LEGOLAND Castle Hotel. Sleep in a LEGO themed room and enjoy exclusive early access into the theme park the very next day. Or families can stay nearby at a LEGOLAND Partner Hotel.
