Top Tips for your Trip!!  (For more info and reviews check out all the links below!)

1.  We started in the back and worked our way back to the front.  It makes somewhat of a loop so that would be a good way to head through as well.  The store is in the back so if you don’t have a bag for ‘swag’ you can shop and get one.

2.  Grab swag!  There are LEGO KidsClub Magazines and the LEGO Club JR magazines – be sure to sign up to get these delivered to your home for free!!!  They usually have free posters, DUPLO hats, comics, and free small sets if you participate in special thing going on (Brick Battle Zone, Challenge Zone) and more!  Bring a bag for your goodies!

3.  At many booths you have to wait in a line to ‘get in’ to the area for the fun– don’t worry they move you in and out pretty quick.

4.  It is CROWDED.  Dress your child in something unique if you can.   It’s not too crowded to have fun and see it all but keep a close eye or you can get separated.

5.  The Theater or Reading Area is a good spot to just relax for a few.

6.  In the construction zone if you build something cool find a LEGO worker and they will display it in the special cases around the area.

7.  There is a lost child area so teach your kids to identify LEGO workers so those are the folks they go to for help.

8.  Be sure to stop by the ‘outside vendors’ areas (Cincinnati had reps from the zoo, Reds, aquarium, a local blog, and more)  Many had their own giveaways and freebies.

9.  There is a store – be sure to explain your spending plan before you go if you do/don’t plan on making purchases.
10.  Parking is $8.  The facility recommends parking in in Lot E and walking across the skywalk for the easiest entry to LEGO KidsFest in the Expo Center.   Food can be pricey there as well.  We did notice a re-entry gate so you could leave and head to your car for a quick snack or meal and come back in if you don’t want to buy food there.  The rules state outside food is not permitted.
Take a sneak peek at the map to find all the fun!
