During the summer school holidays, a number of Hawaiian shopping centres are hosting LEGO Play Zone. From the 2nd January to 6th January it is at The Park Centre in Victoria Park. It is on between 11am and 2pm on these days. The other Hawaiian centres participating at different dates are Noranda, Bassendean, Forrestfield, The Mezz and Melville.
We went today and arrived for 11am. There was already quite a queue and they had opened about 10mins early. We had to queue for about 20mins before it was our turn. Due to the numbers waiting they were running 10min sessions with about 10 kids per session.
The play zone is for 2-12yrs olds and is set up with different activity areas including a free play area which encourages creativity and imagination with a large table and a range of LEGO pieces available. This was the most popular area, especially for the younger children.
There was a Blindfold challenge but during the time we were there, we didn’t see anyone attempt it! The idea is to copy a build while blindfolded. I imagine older children would be more interested in this activity.
There was also a Speed Challenge area. This was set up for two people to challenge each other or race the clock. My 4 year old had a try at this and was given a LEGO Friends pack for 5-10 year olds to build. The pack came with instructions and all the pieces. Many of the pieces were small but with my help, she managed part of the build before our session time was finished.
We were allowed to take the pack away but I think the stopped doing this after us due to the number of people coming through. The set my daughter received was a bowling alley.
There was a Technology area which was set up with 2 tablets and had LEGO content and games to play. We didn’t get enough time to try these in our session.
While you are waiting there is a Diorama set up showcasing current LEGO models and also a TV with LEGO entertainment playing.
You must supervise your children while they are in the play zone, it is not a drop and leave activity. No bookings are required. It was the first day running the day we went and was quite popular so be prepared to queue.
