Quest to LEGOLAND ®, the all new GPS adventure game built for kids, lets kids join Captain Brickbeard, Surfer Girl, the World’s Greatest Adventurer, and the Good Knight for a road trip of epic proportions.
With the Quest to LEGOLAND app our little explorers followed a LEGO® minifigure from our house to LEGOLAND Florida Resort. My son is at the youngest recommended age for it (age 6) but he was able to help his little sister also play the games and solve puzzles. We all found it interest to learn about landmarks, cities, and monuments along the way. This is such a great idea; one I wish all big attractions had. It really made the road trip so much more fun. No more “Are we there yet?” comments.
This fun and unique app is available now on smartphone and tablet. Download for free on Google Play and in the App Store. Below are my screenshots from when I searched for the app on my phone and begin setting it up.
Adult consent is required for the collection, use, or disclosure of route data from the device GPS. It clearly states that LEGOLAND will not collect, use, or disclose any personal information without your consent. And also explains that the geolocation data collected to map their journey will not be used for any other marketing purposes. Once you check your email and approve the app, you can let the kids pick out their character, put in your starting point and then you wait until your travel begins before any activity within the app starts. We chose the beach theme since this LEGOLAND trip was to stay at the NEW Beach Retreat Resort!
The vacation fun literally began the moment we pulled out of our driveway. What you see in the app will depend on the route taken, so every trip truly is a unique adventure for the entire family. As we drove by things missions were unlocked with the games and trivia. It says that seven different kinds of landmarks are pulled into the app experience: National Parks, National Historic Places, National Natural Landmarks, water bodies, caves, mountains, and cities. We have a relatively short road trip from Fort Myers to Lake Wales but still learned some interesting facts about things we passed. It turned a couple of hours in the car into an educational and fun car adventure for us all.
