dividerLOST PARENTS

LOST PARENTSAT THE SHOW, SHOULD YOU BE SEPARATED FROM YOUR CHILD… go to the LOST PARENTS ZONE under the yellow Show Info tent, just inside the entrance to the show.

Every effort is made to ensure the safety of all attendees while visiting the LEGO KidsFest. In the unlikely event that you are separated from your parent or child while at the show, please follow these quick and easy steps:

1. Immediately come to the LOST PARENTS MEETING SPOT sign next to the yellow SHOW INFO tent by the main entrance.

2. Give the staff member at the SHOW INFO TENT a description of the missing person, what they are wearing, and where he or she was last seen. Safety tip: Take a head-to-toe picture of your loved one(s) with your digital camera or phone as soon as you arrive at LEGO KidsFest so we may more easily identify him/her in the outfit they are wearing.

3. Remain with the staff member at the LOST PARENTS MEETING SPOT until building security reunites you with your loved one!

cardsIn addition (for kids too young to remember your cell phone number), before coming to LEGO KidsFest, write YOUR name (not your child's name) and cell phone number on a piece of paper and place it in your child's pocket (or in their shoe if they don't have pockets).

Alternatively, you can also obtain one of our LOST PARENT Contact Cards at the SHOW INFO TENT after the show begins. Put YOUR name and cell phone number on the card, then place it in your child's pocket or shoe.

When your child arrives at the LOST PARENTS ZONE, we'll reunite you that much quicker!
