Minecraft meets Fornite at bumper Dreamland MineVention event

MineVention at Dreamland

Minecraft and Fornite are combining for a bumper weekend at Dreamland, which will include a Guinness World Record attempt

MineVention is coming to Dreamland on March 9-10, with a packed programme of demos, tournaments, talks.

For the first time at Dreamland, the online gaming phenomenon Fortnite will also be pulling into the park on the iconic Razer Gaming Bus and running tournaments throughout the event.

MineVention activities will include build battles, Q&A sessions, tournaments, educational talks, arts and crafts session, costume contests and on-stage challenges.

Minecraft YouTubers Element Animation, TycerX and FalseSymmetry will also be available meet and greet sessions, and there will be plenty of brain-fizzling activities for Minecraft fans of all ages to get suck into.

Fortnite fans can take part in one of the 16-player Battle Royale tournaments on the bus, with nearly 200 players aboard per four-hour session. The winner of each session will be rewarded with V-Bucks, the in-game currency used to buy skins, weapons and more.

The Guinness World Record attempt  will take place on the Saturday (March 9)

at 1pm. MineVention will try and break their own record of assembling 337 Minecraft ‘Steves’ in one place. Guests are encouraged to help break the record by bringing and wearing the following:

  • A large pixelated square head with dark brown hair and blue eyes (can be handmade or purchased)
  • A light blue t-shirt (untucked on the left and back)
  • A pair of light blue jeans
  • A Minecraft prop (can be handmade or purchased)

Tickets for MineVention are £15 plus booking fee per person, per four hour session. Sessions run from 9am to 1pm and 2pm to 6pm.

The Sunday morning session will be autism-friendly to create a more relaxed and sensitive environment for families with children with autism. The session will be the same but with a reduced capacity, no unnecessary loud-speaker announcements, no loud music and reduced lighting.

The event is open to all ages, children aged 3 and under go free, and all children 14 and under must be accompanied by a paying adult.
