Legoland Windsor - This park has the potential to be a great day out, especially for younger kiddies as the rides aren't too extreme and the lego models are ace. Unfortunately, as with a lot of theme parks in our country, you pay an absolute fortune to get in only to queue for an hour for each ride, which do not last more than about 3 minutes. In order to maximise their profit, they drastically overfill the park so it is impossible to have any real fun. Such a shame as the rides there are quite good (if a little tame for older kids, and over rather quickly). They do have a fast pass type of set up (where you get given a set time to go to a ride then get in a shorter queue) which works fantastically in the USA parks and is free but unfortunately you have to pay an extra £15 PER PERSON to use this in legoland. By the end of the day we'd managed to get on just 4 rides, been herded around endless snaking queues and met Darth Vader. Needless to say the kids were not impressed. A similar experience to going to this place would be to go to your bank, open the windows and start shoveling your money out. Don't bother is my advice.
