Imagine a city and build it! In a wide, open space, armed with thousands of cardboard boxes, follow your impulses to create the city of your dreams. Towering skyscrapers, impossible arches and winding tunnels – anything goes.

Polyglot Builders roam the construction site, helping mini-builders think big and build. We Built This City empowers kids to express their visions, with adults enthusiastically following their lead. This fun-filled experience for the whole community is accompanied by a DJ spinning funky tunes and, at the end of the season, the city is shaken and stomped to the ground in a shared moment of glorious destruction.

Please note: your Adult ticket can include up to 3 children in your care for We Built This City. Parents/Guardians will need to stay with their children/minors at all times throughout the event.
