Main Event and Radio Disney will have a huge balloon drop at noon and lots of prizes and giveaways. Someone at each Dallas-Fort Worth location will win a Wii U game system. Special pricing for activities including laser tag, bowling and billiards is available for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
Children will don their New Year’s hats and watch the Lego brick ball drop at noon while enjoying sparkling grape juice, while supplies last. You can also then let them explore the fun center, which includes Lego play stations, the “Legends of Chima” 4D cinema, Forest Ranger car ride, Merlin’s Apprentice ride. Don’t miss the Star Wars miniland Lego display.
