Inside the Ride


Last year, the National Fire Protection Association teamed up with both LEGOLAND Florida and LEGOLAND California for a new fire safety-themed live show titled, “The Big Test.” The result is an educational and hilarious live show that makes fire safety fun!

Located between Driving School and The City Stage Snack Bar in the LEGO City section of the park, The Big Test is in interactive, outdoor 20-minute show that puts kids and adults on the edge of their seats as the Town Fire Department puts another bunch of firefighter recruits through the rigorous “Big Test” to become official Firefighters. Along the way the funny firefighters are put through the paces of learning about what to do if they see a fire, all while dancing and trying to keep the beat to some original songs.

In addition to the dancing and music, “The Big Test” live show incorporates incredible acrobatic feats you aren’t used to seeing from firemen! And what’s a firefighter show without water? As the crew goes to great heights to be the best firemen in LEGOLAND audience members will definitely see, and some may even feel, the water they use as they successfully put out fires. In fact, if you sit in the first three rows of the outdoor amphitheater, there is a good chance you will get wet!

If you want even more interaction from the characters of the “Big Test” show make sure you sit in the blue zone. You never know what kind of fiery fun you’ll get into when these recruits learn how to become firemen!

All fun aside, the “Big Test” live show really does teach important fire safety tips, including two of the most important fire safety messages – the importance of having working smoke alarms, and the development and practice of a home fire escape plan, all in a fun-filled show the entire family will benefit from seeing. And here’s a tip, if it’s a rainy day, they might cancel the show, but they have multiple shows throughout the day, so keep trying. It’s worth it!
