New research from the LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort reveals changing attitudes to Halloween Three in ten British parents have NEVER told their children a ghost story, while more than half admit they have changed the ending of a book so not to upset their youngsters, according to a new study from the LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort. Researchers polled the nation’s parents to reveal the extent to which millions of well- meaning modern mums and dads are wrapping their children in cotton wool when it comes to spooky books, films and activities. In fact, as many as 57 percent are worried about taking their children trick-or-treating this week, and according to the study 50 percent of the adults polled thought Halloween had become too frightening, with 69 percent thinking Halloween outfits in general were too gruesome. The study comes as the nation gears up for the spooky celebration this week, and the LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort prepares to welcome guests for the final week of its Brick or Treat event – which draws to a close on 2 November with a fireworks spectacular to mark the finale. The Halloween spooktacular includes giant LEGO® Minifigure pumpkin heads, the Creepy Cobweb takeover of the Castle – complete with supersize LEGO spider (80 times larger than those found in in the LEGO toy set!) – and the topsy-turvy Haunted House Monster Party Ride. Guests who visit during the Halloween season can build LEGO pumpkins, join the spooktacular Brick or Treat Trail, where guests will have to help Monster Rocker locate his lost party items, then boogie at Monster Rocker’s Disco and enter the daily fancy-dress competition. Brick or Treat runs at the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort until 2 November, with tickets from £36 when booked online in advance at
