Summer in New York City isn’t complete without a visit to
the region’s largest amusement park. Boasting more than 50 rides and
attractions, including the Cyclone, Air Race, and Wild River, Luna Park is
truly a thrill seeker’s paradise.
Central Park is an 843 acre oasis smack in the middle of one of the biggest cities in the world. There’s always something to do, but now as the weather warms up, visitors can take full advantage of paths, lakes, and lawns.
One of the best things to do in Central Park is just discover what is there. Take a Hidden Secrets Walking Tour to discover the often overlooked treasures in the park. Or pick up the pace with a bike tour that hits all the major landmarks featured in many blockbuster movies. A fun activity is the Amazing Race-Style Scavenger Hunt Adventure. Using a smartphone, visitors can solve clues and compete in challenges while learning local history as they traverse famous and hidden spots of Lower and Mid Central Park.
For younger children, there is the Quest for the Seven Teeth, an interactive adventure theater for kids. Help Franklin find the lost teeth scattered across the park for his cousin the Tooth Fairy. Using their imaginations, adventurers will visit castles and travel under troll bridges.
And, of course, there is the Central Park Zoo. Featuring exotic residents like snow leopards and daily penguin feedings, there’s always something to see at the zoo. Check out the 4-D sensory theater for even more fun.
To celebrate the release of the The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part, a team of LEGO® Master Builders
created a life size, red LEGO® Silverado. This special build continues the
partnership that Chevrolet started with Warner Bros. Pictures in 2017 with The LEGO® Batman Movie.
The truck got its big debut at the North American
International Auto Show in Detroit early this year. It is the first full-size
Chevrolet vehicle to be made entirely out of LEGO® bricks.
“Chevrolet is once again thrilled to be working with Warner Bros. to integrate the brand and one of our most iconic products – Silverado – into The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part,” said Sandor Piszar, director of Chevrolet Truck marketing.
It took a team of 18 Master Builders and over 2,000 hours to
create the LEGO® Silverado all by hand. They ultimately used 334,544 pieces.
The full-size replica even includes unique graphic details and working lights.
In total, the LEGO® Silverado weighs in at 3,307 pounds and is 72 inches high,
240 inches long, and 96 inches wide.
If you are your kids see the movie, be on the lookout for a
mini-build of the Silverado High Country. Then, watch as your favorite LEGO® Movie heroes work together to save
the world from the LEGO® DUPLO® destroyers.
Whether you’re planning a romantic date or a family night,
Broadway offers a wide range of drama, musicals, and more. However, if you’re
not used to going to the theater, it might be intimidating. That’s why we’ve
compiled a list of Broadway show tips, from what to wear to what you can do
after the show.
According to ShowTickets, the best tip to keep in mind is to book in advance. While some websites might promise special deals on last-minute tickets, the most popular shows on Broadway usually sell out weeks or months in advance. Be sure to plan ahead if you can.
What should you wear? While there’s not strict dress code,
you don’t want to be the least formal person in the theater. Business casual is
a good mark to aim for, though some prefer to dress to the nines when they’re
going out on the town.
Get there early. Many Broadway seats are reserved, so you
don’t need to plan hours ahead; however, you’ll want to give yourself plenty of
time to get your paper ticket from the box office. Even if you don’t need to
stop at the box office first, you may need extra time for the lines outside or
near the bathroom and concessions.
Finally, stay for the curtain call! You always want to give
the actors their dues (they are people, after all), and leaving during the
curtain call can often seem rude. It’s tempting to rush the door, but it’s
ultimately bad etiquette; have patience and show the actors they did a fine job
with a long round of applause.
If you’d like to arrive to the show in style, consider a classy new vehicle from LaSorsa Chevrolet Buick.
