Disclosure: we attended a screening of LEGO DC: Batman Family Matters as the guests of Warner Bros. and were gifted LEGOLAND tickets.
We’re big fans of all things LEGO and DC, so it was fantastic to attend a special LEGO Batman event at the weekend. We travelled up to LEGOLAND Windsor for what proved to be a brilliant family day out.
Upon arrival, there was plenty to keep the kids occupied. All three of my little heroes enjoyed customising their own capes and masks. They all got temporary tattoos too, while there was the opportunity to play some of the many LEGO video games Warner Bros. has produced in recent years.
After a quick break for some breakfast, it was time for a few LEGO-centric games. The first was a race against time to build the tallest LEGO tower and the boys won! I was proud of them and surprised in equal measure.
Proud at an all-too-rare bit of teamwork from the two of them and surprised that their visually-compelling structure remained standing. Other building and dancing challenges followed and there were smiles all round.
Next came the focal point of the day. A screening of the all-new LEGO DC: Batman Family Matters. We’ve seen all of the other LEGO DC Batman films so far and this didn’t disappoint.
It’s a fun-packed adventure interlaced with the humour synonymous with LEGO animations. The story is nice and engaging too and we all really enjoyed it.
As the name suggests, LEGO DC: Batman Family Matters focusses on the caped crusader’s closest allies as well as the man himself. This, of course, makes it a great family-friendly film.
When the credits rolled, we had reached the end of the event. Well, sort of. You see, as well as a goody bag including a copy of the all-new film and The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame for Xbox One, we were treated to tickets LEGOLAND itself.
It was our first ever visit to the resort, so we were as excited as the kids! We had a lovely time going on as many rides as possible and marvelling at the amazing LEGO constructions throughout the park.
The boys absolutely loved the 4D interactive Ninjago ride while youngest’s highlight was Fairy Tale Brook. I think it’s fair to say that everyone enjoyed everything though and we’re already planning on returning one day.
We all had a wonderful time, which promises to live long in the memory. Big thanks once again to Warner Bros. for inviting us!
LEGO DC: Batman Family Matters is rated U and is out now on DVD.
