Play well, which in Danish is “leg godt,” are the two words behind the world-famous LEGO name. The LEGO Group was founded in Denmark in 1932 and has become a global enterprise.
The LEGO Group’s North America branch is partnering with The Gardens Mall in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, for LEGO Takeover! from April 28 to May 15. For nearly three weeks, fans of the popular plastic bricks can explore The Gardens Mall and come face-to-face with nearly 50 LEGO models from many different genres. There will be Marvel Comics and DC Comics superheroes, characters from The LEGO Batman Movie, Disney princesses, galactic fighters from Star Wars, and many more.
This is the first time in Florida that LEGO fans can experience all of these models in one place. Not only can guests take selfies with life-sized LEGO models, but they can also build their own creations. Visitors can make a race car out of LEGO bricks, then watch it compete against other creations on the LEGO Race Ramps. Or, artsy guests can design their own masterpieces to go on display in the LEGO Art Gallery.
At the public grand opening on April 29, children will be able to challenge their peers in two competitions geared around the theme: “Things to do in Palm Beach County.” One competition will allow participants to build their creation before arriving at the mall. The other will be a timed event in which competitors must complete their construction in just 30 minutes.
On Saturday, May 6, guests at LEGO Takeover! The Gardens Mall will also be treated to a free showing of The LEGO Movie, courtesy of Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation. Movie fans will gather in the mall’s Grand Court where they’ll snack on complimentary candy, popcorn, and other movie theater treats.

Exhibition hours will run concurrent with mall hours, Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m.-9 p.m., and Sunday 12 p.m.-6 p.m.
