Tickets Giveaway for LEGOLAND Discovery Centre, Manchester – Ends 15th November

One of the places I have always wanted to go to in Manchester would be the Trafford Shopping Centre.  It is one of those places that just seems to have the ability to draw people toward it.   It is perhaps the reputation that goes before it.  Maybe it also has something to do with Old Trafford and the football stadium that draws us in as my boys are huge Man U fans (don’t ask me why, almost all the kids up here are).

Whatever there is to do, and there is a lot – I think I would have to have a pocket full of money before I headed down from Aberdeen again.  I spent a week there in 2003 for work, and I always vowed to go back, but sadly I haven’t made it down again yet.

There seems to be plenty of things to do in Manchester, and if my children were to have a say in where we go and what we do, then they would definitely decide to visit the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre as they are lego maniacs.

Halloween Manchester style seems to be overwhelmingly colourful at the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre, where they are holding a monster mash LEGO building challenge every day between the 15th and the 31st October.


I have a family pass which will allow up to 2 adults and 2 children to experience the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre park for a day.

To enter, simply

  1. Leave a comment to say what your favourite memory of lego is.
  2. Leave your contact details in the comment, ie email address or twitter id so I can contact you if you win.
– The closing date will be :  Tuesday 15th November

Good Luck
Scottish Mum

  1. Great for boys… and girls who like building… The rides are not really much to get excited about. The 4D Movie was well made for a Lego film. My kids spent most of their time playing with… Legos. Eat somewhere else. The tables seem to be filled with bored parents waiting for their kids to get bored. So if you don’t want to eat standing up, eat before or after. I visited legoland trafford Centre during school holidays and it was very busy with a big queue so i would recommend purchasing tickets in advance.

    Thanks for the giveaway

  30. I remember when opening a new box of Lego there was usually only a small amount of window panes and as the only thing i was any good at making was houses I would be prepared to actually get into a fully fledged fistfight to make sure i got as many of them as i possibly could lol.

  31. Sitting in my mums shop after school at the lego desk for hours and hours

  34. As a child, making endless dogs out of lego because my houses never worked properly and ended up lopsided.

    As an adult, watching the hubby play lego with our nephew, and seeing them make a whole town (a crazy town at that) with it.

    …My contribution still ended up lopsided.

  35. I had a lego arm removed from my ear when I was little and my mum kept it in a plastic tube for ages, I wonder if she still has it (I obviously have a weird mother) also not sure how it got in there


  36. Watching the smile on my son’s face while he is playing with his daughter with the lego that father christmas gave him 34 years ago.

  37. Watching my granddaughter play with the lego that father christmas gave her dad 34 years ago and seeing the smile on his face at the pleasure of playing with it all over again.

  41. I recently dug out our childhood lego for my son and pleased to see lego trees and flowers! Such happy memories


  42. I remember getting a huge box of Lego for Christmas one year. It was the one gift I was allowed to open on Christmas Eve that year as the wrapping was a bit torn. It gave my Dad and I hours of Lego building, listening to Billy Joel whilst my Mum was working in the evenings.

  43. I loved Lego technik and remember building the car – it took about a week!

  44. I remember having many competitions with my sister on who could build the best and biggest and it always made us giggle

  45. Building towers with my cousins, running out of lego and demanding my mum produce some more- before I learnt that money doesn’t just appear from the hole in the wall, you have to put it there first

  46. My favourite memory of lego was building an entire lego town with my dad. Was one of the only times I remember him spending enough time to play with me as a child and I loved it. @susankmann

  47. As a child I never played with lego, but I always remember when I gave my eldest son his first box. He was scared at first cos it had instructions that he had to follow and he couldn’t follow them. So I ended up building the tow truck for him 😉
