Why Should Kids Have All the Fun? Activities for Big Kids in Melbourne

When did we all get too busy to play? One minute we’re kids, stretched out on the rug, playing games. Next minute, we’re paying bills and building our careers. Life was simpler when we were allowed to play uninterrupted for hours. You could spend days on a single LEGO® build; absorbed in a sea of brightly coloured bricks. Whatever you built came straight from your imagination, with a little help from the instructions on the box. And you knew no matter how magnificent (or not), your creation turned out, you could proudly display it to appreciative ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ from your family.


So now you’re all grown up, you can relive the glory days of fun. Rediscover your inner brickie, here at LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre in Chadstone – Melbourne’s ultimate indoor playground. Each month, we hold Adult Nights, where the LEGO®-nostalgic can reconnect to their inner child through play. Put simply, grown-ups can build epic creations out of LEGO® and show off to their friends. Get your hands on thousands of LEGO® pieces without a child in sight. No gently prising the yellow corner piece from a toddler’s fist, or having your works of genius knocked over by an enthusiastic 5-year-old. You’re free to build to your heart’s content.


What Happens at Adult Night?

Adult Night is your chance to build and play with limitless bricks and designs, but the event also features exciting challenges with prizes – hooray! You can even bring your favourite creation from home, to enter into our ‘Model of the Month’ competition. Adult Night is one of the most fun things to do in Melbourne. You’ll be surprised how quickly you’ll rediscover the skills you honed in childhood, and how keen you’ll be to go higher, bigger and brighter, to challenge your PLB (Personal LEGO® Best). And best of all, you don’t need a child with you to get in, because this one’s just for grown-ups.


The Surprising Upside

LEGO® is ridiculously fun to play with, but did you know it also offers surprising health benefits? Engaging in a playful task that requires all your focus, reduces stress. You’re fully ‘in the moment’, as you make piece-by-piece decisions about how your creation will evolve. It’s highly addictive and allows time to play and explore, just like you did when you were a wee little thing. LEGO® bricks and creations are timeless, no matter what your generation or age. So why should kids have all the fun, when there are so many AFOLs (Adult Fans of LEGO®) who’d love the chance to bring out their inner child?
