We were kindly invited to visit LEGOLAND® Windsor for a fabulous family day out on Sunday and it was the most gloriously sunny day to be outside and enjoy the wonders of LEGO.
I have to kick off by stating the resort is a little bit mind-blowing and this applies even if you’re not a fan of LEGO. Do non-fans actually exist though?!
With over 55 rides and attractions where children can find themselves flying through the treetops, escaping dangerous dragons to riding on jaw-dropping rapids with a Viking fleet, there REALLY is something there for everyone.
In fact, there is SO much to do, you need a whole weekend there to appreciate it all, or make that a week.
Now visiting on what felt like the hottest day of the year so far and on a Sunday too, meant we were fully prepared for the queues- and were seriously grateful for priority tickets on some of the rides for the purpose of this review.
I would recommend getting there as early as possible to avoid queues but do go expecting them. You can purchase Q-Bot ride reservation passes at different levels so get near instant access or reduced waiting times on queues.
…The boys were beyond excited for receiving their driving licences after a few laps in their LEGO cars with Oliver even offering to drive us home at the end of the day!
I loved that you could wonder around for hours and just marvel at the size, scale and attention to detail of what can only be described as LEGO sculptures everywhere- the iconic recreated landmarks were simply dazzling (look at London and Paris-wow)!
We were in awe!
Xander and Oliver literally oohed and ahhhhed their way through the whole day.
I loved that the boys could fit into a large buggy easily so while the resort is vast, Peter and I could easily push them around. Don’t they look cute?!
Whiles there, we took in a high energy show (can’t remember the name but various women in pastel outfits that made me want to be 12 again, sung and danced in the sunshine for us). We also enjoyed fairground games (losing them all), took boat rides around a LEGO lake that saw us all getting sprayed-sounds of me shouting, ‘my hair, my hair’ are still echoing round the place and ate more our body weight in sandwiches and crisps!
I actually can’t remember laughing as much as we did on Sunday.
Such a super day out for all the family.
We’ll be back.
