Exclusive Evenings for Adult LEGO Fans to Take Place First Thursday of Every Month
In sharing the unique and interactive experiences offered at the just launched LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Westchester with adult LEGO® fans, the indoor attraction today announced the launch of its first monthly Adult Fans of LEGO (AFoL) Night, taking place on Thursday, May 2 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (admission is from 7:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.) at Ridge Hill in Yonkers. The new monthly event is only open to adults (18 years and older) and allows guests to experience the attraction while enjoying special events and activities tailored to adults.
“As a children’s attraction, it is LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester’s policy to only admit adults who are visiting with a child,” said Chris Mines, General Manager of the attraction. “Our monthly event is an ideal solution for providing access to adults who grew up playing with LEGO bricks, are still passionate about all things LEGO and would like to experience the attraction.”
Beginning with the event on May 2, the adults only evenings will take place the first Thursday of each month (with no event in July as the first Thursday falls on July 4) and feature tailored activities and events that Adult Fans of LEGO will enjoy, including a LEGO building contest with special prizes being awarded, as well as a cash bar with beer, wine and select mixed drinks. Future events may also be developed around specific themes or feature special guests and exhibits.
Of course, guests will also get to enjoy the attraction’s range of educational and interactive experiences, including its 4D cinema, two LEGO amusement rides and MINILAND – the venue’s signature re-creation of landmark locations and buildings throughout Westchester County and New York City, made entirely out of LEGO bricks.
Tickets to the adult evenings are available online at www.LEGOLANDDiscoveryCenter.com/Westchester/ for $18 (plus tax); and at the door the day of the event from 7-7:30 p.m. for $22 (plus tax). For more information, call 866 243-0770 or visit the evening’s Facebook event page at on.fb.me/XU3L9Y.
