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 of… Read Full Review

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 Full Review

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 Miniland was out of date and looking a bit tired now, which is a shame as my son really wanted to see it.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 pay… Read Full Review

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 Full Review

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 Full Review

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 a… Read Full Review

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 Full Review

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 Full Review

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 Full Review

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 road… Read Full Review

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 Full Review

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 experienced… Read Full Review

Legoland Windsor is the extortion captial of the UK. the fact that having fleeced a family of 4 for £136 you are then forced to pay a further £2 to park just increases the aggrevation. To top it all to pay all that money and then have wealthier persons than yourself - waltz past you in the queue with thier q-bits - culminates in an intensely un-enjoyable and aggrevating experience - queue jumping, (even if thwey have payed extra) is entirely un-British. At peak time an entry for a family of 4… Read Full Review

This will seem a negative review but I was very disappointed at how it has changed. Legoland has become far too expensive and the parking fee is an added insult, the food was over priced and the queues a nightmare especially with small children, I do not think that I shall bring my Grandchildren next year unless things change. Lastly would it not be possible to put more seating around and rearrange the paddling pool area so that parents can watch their children without getting soaking… Read Full Review

We have annual passes for Legoland (bought via Tesco vouchers) and use the park very regularly. Some of the reviews are right regarding cost/queues but they can be avoided.
Lots of sites have 2for1 vouchers or lastminute discount sites are good for discounted tickets. This can really reduce the entrance price also lots of local shops/supermarkets have these vouchers on items in store. I asked at my local Sainsburys customer service and bought some yogurts for £2 that had the 2for1 voucher on… Read Full Review

I went with my 5 year old daughter. The reviews below all sum up the problems, however planning (and money) solves all.
Get there 30 minutes before the park opens, head straight for the main rides far side and work your way back. Take a rucksack with your own drinks and food. We got entrance tickets half price from lastminute.com. Ride queues without QBOT were awful from around 11 to 4.30 and when driving out of the car park dont turn left towards Windsor/M4 and join the jam, turn right with… Read Full Review

i went to legoland with my family of 6 people. The queues were long but you will expect it at a theme park. Went on the hill train good but my daughter was in a wheelchair so she had to sit in a seperate cart from the rest of the family. Queues were not as long as i expected but they werent really short. The kids Dragon Rollercoaster was the only ride we had to wait for as it was a 45minute wait. My Daughter got to the front of the queue as she was in a wheelchair but we felt sorry for the… Read Full Review

I didn't read the reviews on this site until the night before we were due to visit. I have to say I was horrified by what I was reading and feared the worst for the day ahead which was already planned and paid for. Having gone ahead and visited the park I feel compelled to give a more measured review of the place.
A lot of the concerns raised here have some substance, however I think that these should be explained a little further.
Firstly, let's get used to the idea that Legoland is an… Read Full Review

Legoland Windsor Tip Off - It's a Rip Off!!!
I visited Legoland yesterday 1st September with my 8 year old daughter. I took my eldest two daughters about 8 years ago and we had a fabulous day so it was always on the cards that I would take my youngest at some point. I was actually horrified at the change in this place.
What I would expect from a good theme park, and I have been to many, is a nicely laid out park with friendly staff, clean facilities and lot's to do. Yes Legoland ticked… Read Full Review
