We spent July 9/10 at legoland during the recent heatwave.Had a fantastic time,it's all positive ! The park is well landscaped with plenty of seating and shaded areas in which to shelter, scattered about.Our kids are aged 6,9 and 11.They are the perfect ages to enjoy what Legoland has to offer.There are plenty of rides for smaller kids in the 2-5 bracket-the newly opened Duplo park is perfect for them. For the older kids and not so brave adults there are more exciting rides,but nothing to scare you witless,just a good adrenalin buzz!
Not being familiar with theme parks I dreaded being overwhelmed by what was on offer, but Legoland is well laid out and compact in size so you can easily get from one side of the park to the other and then back again, but this doesn't mean it's boring.Far from it ! A two day visit is the optimum time span.
We used the q-bots to make life easier and I would highly recommend spending this little extra.You will get so much more out of the visit,will save time and energy.This device enables you to book a ride in advance without the need to queue. The basic q-bot ,priced £15 perperson is perfect,don't bother with the add ons unless you are familiar with the park and know what you want to do.Another tip is to split your group onto 2 q-bots, there are five of us, so we had 3 people on one and 2 on the other.It meant you can go and do different things if the kids are different ages. It doesn't cost any more to do this.
We stayed at the Resort Hotel, which I have reviewed favourably too, was ideal for our 2 day visit. We could walk out the back of the hotel and into the park and start enjoying the rides before the main crowd moved in from the park entrance on the other side.
Our favourite areas were Knights kingdom,land of the vikings and Pirates landing and these were all close to the hotel entrance .
Advice : get into Laser Riders early as you have to queue under canvas- like an oven!
There is a great variety of restaurants, avoid at peak times though, can be chaotic. The one in Knights Kingdom was nice, cool and organised.
Another option, bring a picnic and enjoy on the lawns around miniland, take your time to enjoy the great lego models of places around the world. I pilfered fruit from the breakfast buffet in the hotel!
For real lego fans there is the Imagination Centre, we never got there unfortunately.So much to do.....
If we lived in the UK we would definitely return, but for us this was our one and only visit . The park is clean and well serviced and staffed with patient young people.So Legoland Windsor, "thanks for the memories".We had a great time !!
