Family Days Out : The Great Brick Adventure Liverpool

Today we escaped the wind and rain and had a  day out at the Great Brick Adventure at the Echo Arena in Liverpool. Like most children, our three love Lego so we thought it would be the perfect way to spend a rainy bank holiday Sunday.

The event was run by Bright Bricks and was laid out over one massive room and one smaller room in The Exhibition Centre. The kids didn’t know where to run to first!

The life sized animal Lego models were amazing! The amount of detail that had gone in to each one was fantastic. We thought the Lion was particularly impressive.

The smaller room hosted a Mythical Creatures zone complete with sound and smoke effects. The room was darker to add to the atmosphere and proved to be a bit too scary for our little one, who stood and cried in front of the Chimera! The older two however loved it!

The larger room was also host to three huge Lego/Duplo pits for the kids to make their own creations. My eldest son (and husband!) decided to try and recreate Anfield football stadium!

There was the opportunity to help build a huge hippo out of Lego, and create a part of a massive brick collage. They also had their own version “Warrior Bots” (think Robot Wars for Lego!) and a game to try and flick Lego bricks into a frog’s mouth!

We took part in the charity tombola where there was a price each time. The boys won a Lego mini-figure each but there were bigger Lego sets to be won.

There’s a cafe and toilets on site and it’s easily accessible from the The Docks.

The event is running until tomorrow (27th August) and I believe it is then moving over to Harrogate in Yorkshire on 2nd September. We got our family ticket from Groupon for £25.50 and under 3s go free.
