Visited with merlin annual passes but seemed expensive , if we paid, for the little time we were in there only just over 1 hour. The Star Wars section is very small and not up to the standard of windsor Who's silly idea was it to make you wait for a photograph,that most people do not buy, right in the... More

£40 WASTED!!!!! Nothing for my 16month old toddler to do. Silly waiting times for a poor excuse of a ride/rides. No air-con, dirty and smelly. Would HIGHLY recommend any one wishing to go, not to go.

Never again, just visited today and safe to say me and my husband will never go back. It was way too crowded, was dirty, over priced, and really very little to do. I could take my son who's 6 to any soft play centre! There were queues for everything and they weren't a small wait for very basic rides and... More

2 adults 2 kids. Booked online which only cost us 40 quid. Yes there was a bit of a queue to begin with. You go through in a group initially to break it up but once you're in you can go around at your own leisure. Kids had a great time, loved it. We also enjoyed it and will visit... More

Having pre booked tickets we still waited for 40 mins to enter, once inside it was organised chaos and very expensive. Save your money and avoid

Arrived to stand in a queue for 40 mins just to buy tickets to join the queue to enter the building. Another wait and £40 down and we were finally in. Hurray we thought. We then scaled four flights of stairs to enter the attraction (think big metal shed). There is a grotty cafe and a couple of very poor... More

I arrived at legoland yesterday at 17:10 with my 5 year old daughter after googling the opening hours which states 10:00 - 19:00 and got refused entry despite being annual pass holders. Unless you hunt through the website it isn't obvious that there last entry is at 17:00 this should be made far more clear through their google page and... More

If you or your children like Lego then we'll worth a visit. It is always busy so I would recommend to order tickets online and go for the after 4pm option as much cheaper and the centre starts to become quieter after 5pm. Plenty to do inside and if you are lucky you can get a sofa to sit on... More

Arriving at lego land and spending a hefty £63 for tickets for two adults and two four year olds we had high expectations and very giddy kids. 15 minutes wait lead to a booking in an hour's time. This was disappointing when we wanted to go straight in but at least the staggered entry would avoid long waits. Unfortunately not... More

This is our second visit to the Discovery Centre..... Firstly I will say our two children enjoyed it (aged 11 and 9) even though it is probably aimed at slightly younger children. As Merlin pass holders the visit was 'free'....however, if we'd have paid full price to get in I think I would have felt completely fleeced! As it was,... More
