    When it comes to games and toys, adults of the human species usually take a backseat to kids.

    Management at LegoLand in Grapevine sees something wrong with that picture and decided to do something about it.

    Starting May 25 and extending to the last Wednesday of each month thereafter, the place will be reserved for adults only — not that kind of “adults only” — from 7-9 p.m., for a little grownup Legos playtime … no kids allowed.

    They call it Adult Fans of Lego Nights, or AFOL Nights because everything needs an acronym, or ENAA.

    It costs $19 at the door, no advance ticket sales, which no doubt many a parent would consider a great bargain.

    According to the obligatory press release, the adult time includes the “Kingdom Quest ride, 4D Cinema experience, Merlin's Apprentice, Princess Palace, LDC Café and MiniLand areas. In addition to enjoying the regular offerings of LegoLand Discovery Center, guests will be offered a variety of workshops, and the opportunity to showcase their personal Lego model masterpieces.”

    This is so cool. Lego DeathStar, here we come.
