This is our second visit to Legoland, our first was in 2011 for the opening of Atlantis Submarine ride. The park has all the same rides as 2011 although this year they have added Duplo Valley. My children would have spent the whole day in this section alone due to the glorious warm weather and incredible design, the water was very inviting and I noticed many parents were enjoying the outdoor water play structure just as much as the children!

However the wonderful attraction to this park is the number of rides that younger children are allowed to go on. Don't expect to find any high adrenalin rides of other parks but do go to have an enjoyable time with your family. We adore the water rides such as Vikings River splash and Pirate Falls Dynamite Drench, you will need to take a poncho rain mac if you do not want to become wet, it was a great way to cool down on such a hot day. There are height restrictions so be sure to check out what is possible for your family before you go.

I would highly recommend using Tesco vouchers for free entry, taking a picnic and plenty of water because the food and drinks can add up to a big bill if used through the day. I think Legoland should provide more drinking points of tap water, we only found one by the entrance toilets. The staff filled our bottles up with water when politely asked.

We tried the Q-Bot due to the summer holidays starting. These start at £15 per person to allow you to 'virtually queue' on 20 of the top attractions. You can reserve one online and collect at a special Q-Bot shop near the entrance, 1 device can be used for up to 6 people or you can hire on the day subject to availability. The highest package costs £70 per person with 90% time taken off queue times (too pricey for us). Be warned that the staff ask if you would like to add on other rides at extra cost, a little cheeky Legoland, I did not notice this stated on the web site. However most of the best rides can be selected on a list that shows current queue times and it alerts you when it is your turn to ride. Use a special Q-Bot entrance which is usually the exit of the ride. Some of the Q-Bot entrances can be difficult to find such as raft racers which is at the top of the hill. Only one ride can be 'virtually queued' at a time so be sure to select the next ride as soon as possible and do not turn up early because they will not let you on. It did allow us to go on many more rides when the park was busy and generally worked well for us. We either went on smaller rides whilst we waited or queued on a bigger ride and once complete went to the Q-Bot selected ride. You are asked for a £50 deposit should you loose or break the Q-Bot so keep it safe and remember to return it once your visit is finished, ironically we had to queue to return it.

Make sure you have a good pair of walking shoes, the site is on a hill and there is lots of walking to do. I didn't carry my children this time round and they were truly tired after the visit. We had an amazing thunderstorm that night and neither of them awoke from their sleep.

There are some amazing structures made out of Lego to visit, some look a little tired from being weathered, some others such as the new Star Wars scenes are truly amazing. I really wish I had been this inventive as a child when I played with Lego. There are indoor areas to create with Lego and also shops to buy.

Remember to pay for parking if you go by car before leaving, just go to the information stand. Standard parking is £3 (another cheeky additional cost) which generally isn't that far from the entrance. Try to arrive at least 30 mins before the park opens you may need to add lots of time if you use the M25, there have been accidents, car fires and roadworks which can cause massive tailbacks.

Lego has been the number one toy since it was invented and this park tries to bring this magic to life, a must for families with younger children.

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 !!

I took my 1 and 4 year olds and we had a fantastic time - 1 day is not enough time to visit the whole park. We visited on 20 July in the middle of the 2013 heatwave and the park was busy and the weather was hot but this did not impact on our enjoyment at all. We took a picnic and did not eat anywhere there but 4 ice creams cost us £10.70!!! We saw a puppet show and a pirate show and there is an outdoor water park which we didn't know about so I suggest taking kids swimwear or change of clothes and a towel. We had a pushchair and were able to leave this outside the rides we went on. Everyone I spoke to beforehand recommended it and I will also recommend it to everyone with kids. Not sure if you enjoy it if you did not have kids though.
