Plus there’s millions of blocks across multiple build zones in the LEGO PLAY ZONE, and even an ICE AGE INTERACTIVE ZONE complete with it’s own skating rink. Keep the little kids busy with MY LITTLE PONY, PLAY-DOH, THOMAS AND FRIENDS and Christmas Arts and Crafts zones, or get the whole family involved in a giant-sized game of OPERATION, CONNECT 4, SCRABBLE or PICTIONARY. All this and so much more, including appearances by GOLD COAST TITANS players, a GIANT INFLATABLE OBSTACLE COURSE, a visit from SANTA plus food and drink on sale and a dedicated parent’s chill out zone!
