I visited with my partner, 7 and 1 year old. My youngest spent the entire day in the buggy as it was extremley busy which was expected as it was the summer holidays. We did however expect there to be an area that she could get out the buggy for a while but it just wasnt possible. All of the other visitors and staff all looked very annoyed and the atmosphere was terrible. We only managed to get on 3 of the larger rides and a few of the smaller ones which you could find at your local fair.... (read more)

We decided to try legoland and paid 85 pounds which is a discounted price believe it or not for a family of 3. My son was quite interested in the lego statues to begin with. However once we decided to Que up for the rides, the dissapointment sank in. The waiting time was a joke, hours on end for rides, in the whole day we probably managed 5 rides, which for the price was abysmal. After queing for well it seemed an eternity for the dyno ride, we eventually got on and it lasted about 90... (read more)

We have been thinking about going to Legoland for quite a while now and we finally decided on a Legoland family day. I felt it was really poor value for money, given the very lengthy queues for the rides and the very limited kids' play areas. The most impressive part of the park was Miniland, which was fantastic, but otherwise, it really didn't meet our expectations when I think about the prices of the tickets. I can't imagine we'll be back. (read more)

(Young children slant comment). We LOVE Legoland. Prior to our initial visit (on my son's 2nd birthday last Oct) I hadn't realise how geared up for small children Legoland is, so I upgraded that day to an annual pass as we live 20 mins away and have a 9month baby too. This year alone we've been 10 times so far (myself and both children) and its been fab every time and perfect for little ones. There are plenty of rides I can take the baby on, and attendents are happy to look after her on a... (read more)

As a lego enthusiast when I was young, I was looking forward to going. One of the worst days out. Rip off at every corner. No relevance to lego apart from some dated algae covered lego statues which are of no entertainment value. Queued for over an hour to get on a log flume ride of about 3 minutes then ends in a washout rather than a fun splash. The canyon ride the same.
Never again. Been to Thorpe Park, Alton Towers and would go again, but not to this drivel. (read more)

Just don't bother. It's a rip off aimed fairly and squarely at mugs who've just got off a Jet at Heathrow.
Tired, faded, Chav food, expensive, queuetastic, boring. The whole place looks like it's had a £500 lego makeover - you could be at your local fairground.
Realistic value would be @ £10 per person entry. Kids had more fun at a steam museum. (read more)

Our worst day out with the kids ever (ages 5, 6 and 8). Massive queues - one hour for most of the rides, long queues for toilets and ice creams. The two water rides were closed for maintenance. Bins overflowing with rubbish. Rip-off prices all round. AVOID! (read more)

Again, a review to add some balance to this list which seems to seriously polarise opinion.
Firstly, yes, Legoland isn't cheap - however, please show me a modern theme park that is... that's right - you can't. We opted for annual premium passes as we don't live that far from the park and, as it's the equivalent of 2 and a half visits at full ticket price, it makes sense for us. Having been for the first time at the weekend I don't regret our decision in this regard. Either way, it's a hell... (read more)

Visited legoland a few years ago and it wasn't a very successful visit but put this down to my children being too young at the time. Was persuaded to go back yesterday as my son is an avid Star Wars fan. It cost us just over £130 for the family. The 1st 15 mins were fab when we had photos taken with Star Wars characters. We then moved into the park itself where we queued for rides, queued for food, walked miles to find anything of interest. We stayed late for the 'main attraction' of the day... (read more)

First time we've been to legoland and probably the last! We queued to get in, queued to park and then queued all day long for very short lasting rides! Couldn't eat where we wanted as the queue was so long they'd stopped people coming in. Miniland was out of date and looking a bit tired now, which is a shame as my son really wanted to see it.
Staff were great and polite and park was clean despite it being packed that day. Carpark charge is an insult. You need to go on a really quiet day or... (read more)

We went to Legoland for the Star Wars laser show. It lasted 10 minutes and was very poor indeed... a total waste of money. Also, you now have to queue for ages to get out because of the recently imposed parking charges.
We wouldn't recommend this attraction. (read more)

Felt I needed to write a review as I was so nearly put off going to Legoland by all the negative comments on this site, especially those saying it was dirty, over-crowded, staffed by unfriendly/unhelpful people, etc, etc.
We visited yesterday and had an amazing day. The park was pristine, I didn't see any rubbish anywhere all day and the garden areas and landscaping are beautiful and perfectly tended. Everyone seemed to be having a good time, no-one was stressed out or cross. The staff... (read more)

The park is looking very old, run down and dirty. More access restrictions have been applied despite the rise in costs. Plus you have to pay to park. Queue lengths are far to long as too many people have been allowed into the park. You're lucky if you get 4 rides in one day! If you have Q-bot then you were probably 'luckier' but that's another extra cost some unfortuante families can't afford.
Staff are not the friendliest and more keen to chat with their 'mates'.
Everything seems to be just... (read more)

A thoroughly awful trip today, the first day open for 2011, even more packed than ever before because as usual Legoland admit far too many people. Got on one ride in four hours after queuing for 45 minutes with small kids. If there were more staff operating each ride things would move quicker. Of course if your rich you get a Q Bot to jump to the front of the poor people queuing for ages. Why aren't the trains running in Miniland which is looking tired? (read more)

Recently visited legoland after months of planning.Pre-paid ticket queue took longer than gate queue. Power cut NO back-up generators, staff not aware of proceedure, park to close cancelled fireworks, 2 very disappointed children. Ticket refund would be more beneficial as do not intend to visit park again. Complaints have to be made through phone and not e-mail. (read more)

I was rather shocked. I suppose I was comparing it to Chessington. It seemed outdated, drab, and concentrated more on trying to profit, eg lots of shops, as opposed to creating a wonderful adventure.
Within a short while of being there, my twins were asking to go home. Literally begging me to leave.
I couldn't see any picnic space, there was so much walking between 'rides', and access was poor with a double buggy. The staff were sparse, and unknowledgeable.
We had more fun at the motorway... (read more)

Visited on 28th October, so half term... Never again.
Queued to park the car, queued to buy tickets, queued for rides and queued to get out of the car park at the end of the day. Total time spent standing in queues for rides = 4.5 hrs, total time spent on rides = 10 minutes.
Considering the cost of the tickets, to charge an additional £2 for car parking is just plain greedy. We left at the end of the day as the park was closing and it took 45 minutes to get from the car park to the main... (read more)

We paid 134 for two days in legoland and a night in the Holiday inn Hotel, it was brilliant.The first day we got there it poured down. There wasnt many places to shelter which i was surprised at it always rains so this would be a good idea.On the plus side there was no queing which was fab, we done all the things we wanted to do on the first day and the next day when the weather was dry done everything else. We took a picnic and our own drinks to cut costs, but there were offers on that Kids... (read more)

We are Merlin pass holders so I can't comment on the entrance fees.
We have two sons aged 8 & 11 and have been here 4 times so far this year - 21st March,23rd May,20th June (Fathers Day) and 25th July,all Sundays.We have never experienced problems driving into Legoland and have always come straight in.Likewise,we have never queued to get out of the cp at night,maybe that is because we always leave right at the end of the day,by which time other people may have already left.
We have... (read more)
