Thousands of Lego bricks exploded over Windsor’s skyline this weekend during the theme park’s Brick or Treat fireworks display.

Families were given special 3D glasses that revealed the hidden Lego bricks shattering in the night sky.

It launched two weeks of Halloween-themed activities which kicked off on Saturday and will run until November 2. It will include spooky shows, attractions and meet-ups with Legoland’s mascot Lord Vampyre and his monster friends at the new Haunted House Monster Party ride.

Visitors can also help build a giant Lego mosaic of theme park’s spooky Halloween friends or head to the Lego Reef to build a Lego sea monster.

Youngsters who come dressed up in a Halloween costume can enter the Miniland competition before spotting the smallest Lego pumpkin patch hidden amongst the theme park’s miniature landmarks.

Legoland spokesman Samantha Bentley-Paul said: “This Brick or Treat, Legoland’s newest resident monster Lord Vampyre is throwing the ultimate Halloween party. Little ones are invited to get stuck into a host of spooky Lego activities this October half term. There will be plenty of fun for the whole family with awesome rides, shows and attractions to enjoy.”
