Ben meets Eddie the Turtle

Ben is 9 years old and is slowly losing his sight due to issues experienced during birth. Ben and his family are now on a race against time to give him as many experiences as they can before he goes completely blind.

Merlin’s Magic Wand helped with this by giving Ben and his family a magical day out at LEGOLAND Discovery Center Dallas Fort Worth and SEA LIFE Grapevine. After experiencing the aquarium, Ben was invited backstage with one of the aquarists to meet Eddie the turtle.

Ben and his family then went to LEGOLAND Discovery Center where they met the Master Model Builder. Ben’s visit was a huge success and he will have magical memories that will last far beyond his blindness.
