I am a immigrant who now calls Australia ,home. My blogs are pieces of my life ,my sense of wonder that I want to share with you. Visit my blog at www.theeconomicsocio.com
Round up ya fellas! Tis the season to be jolly and with kids on a Christmas break, there's no dearth of fun and exciting things lined up to keep the little folk happy and out of trouble.
Take the scouts to Australia's only indoor Lego playground, an exciting indoor adventure at the Legoland Discovery Centre in Chadstone, Melbourne. It is a bonus that LEGO City Police are coming to LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Melbourne, so brace yourself for an action-packed adventure. Get in while the fun lasts - From 19 December 2019 to 30 January 2020.
Single tickets are $37.50 for adults and kids, although there are Concession tickets priced at $27.50.
If you plan on visiting the Discovery Centre regularly, it might be more economical to buy an annual pass ($81 for individuals & $77 each for families which have a maximum cap of 2 adults) which grants you unlimited access to the centre all-year-round.
Tip: Oh! If you're planning a trip to the Legoland Discovery Centre or even the shop, you will notice that a lot of the workers there have nametags with minifigures attached to them. Just like Legoland Theme Parks, you're allowed to initiate a minifigure trade with them!
So what is so special about Report for Duty you ask. Below are the activities lined up so that you get your dose of adventure and some real cop action.
DIRECT AND FILM YOUR OWN LEGO CHASE Well for all those budding Steven Spielbergs and Martin Scorseses out there, this is the perfect opportunity to be the LEGO City Hero and create your own amazing police chase mini-movie. You can get creative and set up vigilante patrols to protect the area. Your city is under attack and you, only YOU, can save it. Well, so what if you are chasing only a pesky, notorious burglar. (That's enough thrill to begin with!)
ZIP IN FOR THE RESCUE If you are more of a builder, a creator of things and a Lego aficionado this is your shot at building a LEGO helicopter. This is a great family activity as everyone can get around and huddle to build the perfect whirlybird. We all know the talent required to build a mean copter and that my friend, is just stage one. You can then zip your helicopter into some real action. The moment of truth!
COPS VS ROBBERS BATTLE It's cops vs robbers in our LEGO battle drome. Who has the power to reign supreme? In the end, who shall win? Use the LEGO City launchers to spin your cop or robber into the battle zone and knock out your opponent. Throw in a great finishing blow!
Have you ever found the police pursuit cars oh-so-boring and dull? Always felt like you could do them a favour (Chrissy present, why not) and come up with a better design that will be cool and kickass. So what does that ultimate police vehicle look like? Here's your golden ticket to create your own wicked-cool police pursuit vehicle to conquer any LEGO rescue mission. The fun does not end there. You can test on the build and test ramp! It cannot get any more real than this, now can it?
MINILAND MELBOURNE TAKEOVER Miniland, which is hands down the best feature of the Legoland Discovery Centre. It was my favourite part of the entire thing, and for older LEGO fans, this is the apex attraction. It has all the major Melbourne landmarks that you know and love. Now imagine the city that you love so much is under threat. Oh no! Monsters are taking over Miniland Melbourne and causing a wave of destruction! The LEGO City Cops are working hard to defend the world's best mini city!
BUILD YOUR BADGE Well, you are not a cop if you cannot flash your badge! Imagine you are fighting some real bad guys and trying to keep the streets clean and you do not have a cool enough badge! That would be an utter disgrace! Never mind, Legoland has you covered. You can create an already designed badge or create your own from scratch. How cool is that!
With all the police driven activity, you surely would be all charged up but could always use some inspiration. Join our local LEGO City Police Officers in a crazy 4D caper across town as they chase down the mischievous crook through the streets and skyscrapers of the metropolis. Become part of the action in this chaotic pursuit full of water, wind, fog and light effects as the pair get into all sorts of trouble. With you as their trusted backup, will they be able to put the crook behind bars?

MEET AND GREET
After all the fun that you have had beating LEGO crime what if you could get a perfect picture with a REAL Police Officer! Now that's the real deal! All you have to do is come in, fight some crime, show him what you are worth and then say cheese for your candid photograph. (Or you could simply jump to the say cheese part and get your picture with a real hero!)
