Legoland Windsor!!

James has been on and on about going to Legoland so on Saturday we decided to suprise him!

We all got in the car really early and headed out telling James we were just going to see a friend. When we arrived at the gates to Legoland and he saw the lego figures and blocks he was so excited he started shouting "Were at Legoland, Were at Legoland I love it" lol and he didn't stop smiling all day!



We had such a fantastic day and luckily despite a few grey clouds whilst we were queuing to get in the park the rest of the day was blue sky and lots of sun. 
The park was very busy but that's only to be expected for a park like this in the summer holidays, The ques were really well handled by the staff and the ques had clearly marked signs with expected waiting times so you new just how long you would be waiting for each ride.

The park was extremely clean and we saw several staff members over the park clearing up any litter that had been dropped. The staff were also really helpful in helping you find places (we couldn't find our way to the river rapids but were quickly pointed in the right direction by a lovely member of staff). 

The prices are a little steep at around £46 per adult and £41 per child however there are so many 2 for 1 vouchers or cereal and crisp packets etc you can get it much cheaper by simply using one of these. 
There are plenty of rides and attractions for all ages including Duplo valley which even has a water park play area for the younger guests and Knights kingdom with lots of faster roller-coasters and rides for the older children. 

Here are some pictures of our day - 

Lots of rides

Plenty of Lego figures dotted around the park for pictures too

James particularly enjoyed the Learner Driver ride where the children are given a quick guide on driving then taken to their cars and they drive around the track. At the end they are given a little token driving licence which can be taken to the booth and you can pay for a plastic Legoland driving license with your child's photo on which comes complete with a lanyard for your child to wear it!

There is also a Submarine ride where you board a submarine and the bottom half is submerged in water with lots of glass windows so you can see all of the fish, sharks, sting rays and there are even Lego figures under the water!

The miniature village is also pretty amazing! Its staggering at what can be made out of Lego and all of the detail that has gone into it! There are floating boats, moving fairground rides and even moving racing cars!



Legoland is such a huge park I think we will definitely consider staying overnight next time as you really do need 2 days to get around the whole park properly in the busy seasons. We had a fantastic time and came wait to go back! 

You can check out the Legoland Website HERE and plan your own visit!

  10. I really want to take my son soon whilst he is such a great age to enjoy it, it is the price and busyness that puts me off! It sounds like you had a fab time though!

  15. Im very fortunate that the last time I went we had golden VIP passes so we could go straight to the ride exit and get on! We were able to see and do so much more this was, it was incredible.
