Upcoming trip to Legoland Germany

So, since we just recently moved to Germany, my wife and I are busy trying to do things for our kids to make up for uprooting them. For Halloween, we decided to take them to Legoland Germany. Has anyone here been to the park for Halloween, or just to the park there and can give any advice on what to do/see/expect there?

Do they have Pick-a-brick? VIP cards accepted at the shops? Etc...

    We were there in May, so I don't know about Halloween. Is it celebrated in Germany? We were living in France and it's pretty much ignored there.

    There is amazing PAB but it's by weight and therefore fairly expensive. Build a minifigure is also in that section (at the end of the Factory), I think it was 5 figures for €10. There are baseplates and rarer things priced per unit also.

    There is a sale tent that was mostly clothing and gear but also had 4 large bins of loose bricks, also sold by weight but at a lower rate. That was fun.

    Are you staying at the Holiday Village? My 10-year-old daughter loved the ropes course.

    I didn't try my VIP card as it's Merlin not LEGO.

    I don't know if there's anything due out then, we were able to pick up Mixels and Friends a few weeks in advance.

    I don't remember our favourite rides. Little miss wouldn't do the Ninjago one. It really depends on what your kid likes. Oh, it was the Atlantis attraction, she was planning to be a marine biologist then, I found it underwhelming.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you, Jenni! I believe we are staying in the Holiday Village so both of my kids will be on that ropes corse...Even if my son is too young for it.

    Some places around here in the Wiesbaden/Mainz/Ingelheim area celebrate Halloween but not as big as what is done on the US military bases from what I am told

    Legos sold by weight will be interesting because PaB is only what you can fit into the cups and the way my kids pack them...its usually paying for more air than bricks.

    We will be there for two days so it should be plenty of time to hit all the rids...I just hope it is enough time to see all the builds there.

    You will enjoy their Miniland. It was the first LL Park we visited, and the builds are just astounding and surround by meticulous greenery...it is in Germany after all! Allow plenty of time for taking pictures of the builds you like or you will not remember them once you leave the Park.
    Of the six LL Parks, the PAB area seemed to have the biggest selection of cool parts, so be prepared to spend Big Bucks/Euro!
    It can be very sunny at this Park (everyone got burned in early June), so I would throw in hats just to be safe as the trees are still short at this point and there is not a lot of shade in places.
    The family will last longer if you can take a few breaks during the day. Down time in the cafes can be nice if it is not too loud, and the kids' meltdowns could be a little less intense with some still time thrown in. it is smart to spend two days there because it really rushes things too much to try to do a Park in one day with kids.
    There also is a wonderful "sculpture park" area of famous people behind the Miniland. They are first class builds as well.
    We have very fond memories of this Park! The little town nearby has a lovely traffic free area full of restaurants that are nice for relaxing outside if the weather is decent. We stayed upstairs in a B and B there and enjoyed it a lot. But of course kids will go for the Park Hotel any day over an adult place.

    Does anyone know if Merlin annual pass from the UK gets any discounts in Legoland Germany? There's a merlin page regarding international entry but it's very vague.

    @Jenni do you remember what the price for the PAB was?  I think its per 100g.
  • JenniJenni USAMember Posts: 1,376
    It is but it was over five years ago! Maybe 3.50 euros?

    I have a Billund season pass from my Inside Tour this year and the only discount it gives me in California is 50% off a one day admission ticket.

    My neighbour went in 2017, and PaBrate was €9,00 per 100grs.
  • JenniJenni USAMember Posts: 1,376
    @eMJeeNL I'm sure that's right, 3.50 seemed way too reasonable.

    In wholly unfunny news, I'm packing up to change continents again and found the bag of purple sea stars from Germany, untouched. Maybe you can have too much LEGO .......

    No. Absolutely not. I refuse to accept your assertion.
