Fun, funky, amusing and exhilarating in short sums up Legoland Windsor. This amusement park, which is a pride of United Kingdom, has been a hot spot for tourists and locals alike. The park is well laid out with sections such as ride for bigger kids, fun for all, rides with restrictions so on and so forth. Rides like the jungle coaster and the dragon will blow you away. Your tots have a lot to look forward to, what with Miniland-the largest lego-bricks construction and the Kingdom of the Pharaohs, you will be lucky if you can prise them off Legoland. With educational activities, shows and food and drinks counters Legoland offers all that you wish for and some more. Continuously revamping and bettering themselves Legoland is an ideal getaway for the whole family. The park opens at 10a, closing times vary. Go ahead and enjoy the joy childhood.
Left motorway and joined stop start queue for nearly an hour, finally reached small roundabout and joined queue! Uphill climb which turned into two queues! Where stopped to see if had pre booked, we had, so were given permission (orange piece of paper placed on windscreen) to proceed to top of hill to main car park. Walked into main entrance to join queues to exchange printed confirmation for tickets. Entered turnstile and decided to eat picnic before starting "adventure."
This turned out to be a good move as spent the next few hours queueing for minimum of one hour for per ride, some of which lasted approximately three and a half minutes!! Queues for some of the really popular rides stated a wait of ninety minutes all of which were through cattle type stalls.
When we left the park at 7 30pm we were unable to leave the carpark for an hour and just sat there with the engine turned of untill car parkes further down the hill had been emptied, we then joined a two lane queue in the dark.
The admission for a family of five cost £100, that was with a 40% discount through lastminute.com. Even though we took our own food we still spent a lot of money on overpriced drinks etc. Take plenty of money with you, comfortable shoes and lots of patience!!!
After spending 10 days in the UK with my husband and two daughters, ages 4 and 6, we decided that our last full day on vacation we would go to Legoland. The girls had become tired of the usual sightseeing and wanted some kid friendly fun.
Overall, the girls had a good time and enjoyed all the rides. I would say that my 6 year old would be on the tail end of enjoying the rides with the exception of the two costers. Most "rides" seem to be geared toward the 2-5 year olds, so if your kids are older, they will likely be bored. Also, the total cost of the day seemed pretty steep: door to door from Central London hotel; tube to Paddington Station, train to Windsor, taxi to Legoland, admission for 4 to park, lunch at park, bus back to train staion, train to Paddington, tube to hotel:
Grand total about $250 for the day. We did not buy anything at the gift stores.
My husband was annoyed but the girls had a good time.
