Not only that, but from December 14 to January 8, the brand-new Santa Sleepover at the LEGOLAND Hotel is a must-attend journey for families looking to give their children an unforgettable holiday adventure. It includes a special letter from Santa, a LEGO® gift in the room, exclusive hotel holiday-themed activities like building LEGO® ornaments together with free access to LEGOLAND Dubai with all* festive events and more.  

For the second year in a row, LEGOLAND Dubai is announcing the comeback of the daily Christmas Countdown in MINILAND. A huge 4-metre-high Advent Calendar with LEGO gifts worth AED 40,000 behind the doors, awaiting one daily winner, from 5. to 25. December to open one of its doors and take an awesome LEGO prize home. Here, and upon arrival at the park gate, every guest will receive one ticket with a number, which could be the lucky number to win the daily LEGO prize. To double the magic during this miraculous occasion, the advent calendar will have double doors on 23, 24 and on 25 December, waiting for two winners to open and take their awesome LEGO present home. Guests longing to increase their winning chances can visit all park retails shops including The BIG Shop to select their favourite LEGO souvenirs* and receive additional Avent Calendar ticket(s).

Numerous opportunities await the imaginative kids, including the daily festive cupcake decorating classes* at The Café terrace, where they may unleash their inner chefs and then take their finished creations home. With the assistance of the LEGOLAND elves, they may also participate in decorating the sizable LEGO® Gingerbread House in MINILAND.

Young detectives, looking for the next quiz to solve, will not be disappointed with two festive quiz games: the ‘ELF Hunt’, where kids need to find and collect 8 letters marked on Santa’s elves throughout the park, ‘decipher’ the letters to discover the festive word; while ‘Santa’s Present Search’ encourages them to help Santa finding and counting his LEGO gifts that fell from his sleigh while flying over MINILAND. Additionally, young party goers should not miss the daily ‘Holly Jolly Holiday Party’ performed by LEGOLAND characters and elves at the 10-metre-high LEGO DUPLO® festive tree in FACTORY Street.
