Lego Tour

LegoTour

The very cool Lego Imagination Nation Tour had a stop in Ottawa and I was lucky and won tickets from Crystal Clear as Mud. We would not have gone otherwise because tickets were super expensive.

We arrived at the EY Center and the kids were given their Cool Creator badges. We didn't know what to expect but what we found was a whole lot of Lego and some really fun and impressive things!

The whole EY Center (a huge building where trade shows are held) was being used. The place was divided into areas for each of the kinds of Lego. First up was Nexus Knights. We made our own shields, put them up on the wall, and then the kids played a game on tablets.

After that it's kind of a blur, but we made our way around to all the different areas. In Lego City, the kids built cars that they then got to race in a game.

In the duplo section, there was an interactive show so the kids did that and got a prize.

There was an area where you could test your strength by building a bridge out of Lego and having it tested with weights. We didn't do that but the kids did get up and personal with the Hulk, Spiderman and Batman.

One of the favourites was where they got to build a dojo and then defend it in the game.

The Star Wars zone didn't have a game, but the kids still made their space vehicles and admired the characters.

We did the Minecraft zone near the end and the kids were getting tired.. we'd been there almost 4 hours.

Just me and my girl.
In the 4 hours we were there, we saw everything, built a lot of Lego, and played a lot of games. We were spent! It was pretty cool.

  1. Lego City sounds fun. I remember having lots of lego when I was growing up. I'm sure I would keep the tradition with my future kids. Looks like a fun trip!

  2. We considered going but like you, balked when we saw how expensive the tickets were. I'm curious - how busy was it? I can't imagine they got a huge turnout. I hope if they come back again it'll be less expensive.

    1. The place was set up to accommodate huge crowds but it wasn't busy at all. And when I was chatting with the staff while the kids made their creations, I learned that a lot of them were asked to not come back for the rest of the weekend.
