Outside food and drinks are not allowed. And yes, they search bags. We had to leave our snacks outside the doors at the customer service booth.
Just inside they had the Lost Parents booth. I love this! Fill out a card with your name and number so that if your child gets lost, they can go there to find you.
There was so much to do!

They also gave away poly bag sets if you completed or participated in certain events. We did the Challenge event of trying to build boats.
In the Mindstorms arena, my oldest got to control technic robots.
There were lots of building opportunities. Princess, Duplo,
