“First and last time”

Written on: 01/06/2011

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 Full Review

“(Young children slant comment). We LOVE Legoland....”

Written on: 20/05/2011 by SRandall (1 review written)

(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 few… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/05/2011

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 Full Review

Did this person go with children? I would be the first to say that none of the rides are white knuckle terrifying, BUT - its LEGOland - aimed at kids. Its absolutely perfect for all ages. All of the rides are suitable for small children (not babies - but they dont do lego anyway) and nearly all of the rides are thrilling enough for adults too. And we thought miniland was fantastic, the royal wedding at Buckingham Palace and the changing of the Guard, and a bonus - there was Dr Who and the Tardis - my grandchildren had the best day of their lives.

Written on: 18/04/2011

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 Full Review

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 Full Review

Written on: 10/04/2011

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

How patronising. A balanced review does not assume that everyone who found the queues too long is a smoking tattooed chav, plenty of people find the ticket cost as much as they can afford without doubling the cost by paying for four Q-Bots. Theme parks aren't cheap, but Legoland is much more expensive than any of the others in the UK.

Written on: 10/04/2011

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

Written on: 10/04/2011

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

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

Written on: 28/03/2011

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

Written on: 06/04/2011

I visited the park the day before this reviewer and had a very different experience. The longest wait I heard anyone complain of was 45 minutes. By some theme park standards, this is nothing. On Thorpe Park opening weekend, some people waited 2 or more HOURS to go on the new Saw ride. While I appreciate that this was a different scenario as the queuers would have been considerably older, the queueing conditions were much improved. Unlike Thorpe Park, where you effectively queue in a cattle shed, there are activities and things to look at to keep young children occupied. There were regular announcements in the queues for the more popular rides advising of the wait time, so people should not have been surprised by this. The staff were quite obviously doing all that they could to keep the queue lines moving as quickly as possible, but it is not their fault that so many people decided to go on the ride/visit the park at the same time. They could only deal with what was put in front of them.
<br/>As I have said in another review, the Qbot system, while flawed, still ensures that you have to wait the same amount of time for the attraction, and limits the number that can be queueing in this way at any one time, especially if the queues are long, but just enables you to not have to stand there while you are queueing. You can still, as I did, have an incredibly productive and enjoyable day without it.
<br/>As for parking, &pound;2 is nothing when you compare it to how much shopping centres such as Westfields charge for an entire day...and, in fact, Disney World, who also charge considerably more for tickets.

Written on: 26/03/2011

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

Written on: 06/04/2011

This review seems a bit naive. Of course the first day of the season was going to be busy, because everyone had had exactly the same idea as him/her. The fact that s/he got on one ride in 4 hours after queueing for 45 minutes for a ride makes no sense, because there was easily a spare 3 hours where something else could have been done. It's all about taking the chance when you walk past a ride and the queues are short rather than picking a ride and queueing. I visited on the same weekend and found the staff working incredibly hard under very difficult conditions having to deal with thousands of complaints like this one after the other. It was clear that they were doing all they could to get all of the people through as quickly as possible.
<br/>While Qbot is somewhat annoying sometimes, these people have paid for this privilege. As I've heard commented elsewhere, it's just like seeing the business class passengers loaded onto the plane before you. And they have still been queueing for the same amount of time, they have just not been stood there. IT IS NOT A FORM OF QUEUE JUMP.
<br/>And as for letting too many people in, how would you have felt if you had turned up on the day, only to be turned away because the park had too many to avoid slightly longer queues? I suspect you would have given them an even more scathing review than the one that's in front of me right now...

Written on: 31/10/2010

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

I found this review very helpful because...we wre at legoland on 28/10/10 with our 2 grandchildren and are of the same opinion. Power cut, staff unhelpfull and not in communocation with each other. Mixed messages park closing, park not closing, fireworks cancelled, no back up generators 2 very upset and disappionted grandchildren.Reinbursment of future tickets not helpful as live 200 miles away.

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

Written on: 25/09/2010

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.
