Today is the second day that Legoland Windsor has been open to the public and we decided to pop along to renew our Melin passes and get out of the house. I have to say I was pretty impressed, as for the first time ever, they had loads of staff on and we didn’t even queue at guest services to get them done. We thought we would pop in and have a quick look round at the changes that they had made for the new season.
First up, there is a new Ninjargo movie playing in the 4D theatre. No one seemed to know what time it was running but when we got there it was the only film on and being shown between 2-4 and two hours in the morning too. As I have a ninjargo mad 8 year old we popped to watch it, much to my 10 year old’s disgust. Let’s just say, if you aren’t a fan of ninjargo, it’s not the best short movie. If you are then you will like it as it is like the time series. It was ok but I prefer the Lego movie one they had, and quite frankly, none of them will beat the Bob the Builder one that was running 8 years ago.
We then went to see the new models in miniland. These are refreshing. Bright and colourful and the children know the places featured.
I had to explain that The Luxor was in America rather than Egypt to the boys, and they still don’t really get the idea of the Vegas strip. Little man spotted a great white circling nearby Sydney Opera House.
And middle man is already having his picture by the Hollywood sign, in preparation for his future film career.
The biggest shock for me was that the reef was quite good. I was expecting it to be really naff. In fairness, it’s not something you would spend hours in, or somewhere you would make a point of going if it was your one time visit to Legoland. However, if you have an annual pass it is worth a visit. There are two parts. Some brick building areas for you to create your own Lego model fish and a computerized area. You basically use a touch screen to design your fish, choose it’s colours and then wait a few seconds and it appears on the giant screen at the back. Here is my one!
Whilst the changes are good, it is a shame that there aren’t some new rides. Infact, there is no longer the pull up tower in this area and the hill train still isn’t working either. What is your favourite thing to do on a visit to Legoland?
