Our personal review – Legoland Windsor Short Breaks
What a fantastic day for the little ones, we have been visiting Legoland Windsor for the past three years as birthday treats. The kids were aged 3, 4 and 7 years when we started our vists now 5, 6 and 9 years we are still finding new rides to go on.
There is so much more to do on your day than just rides. The water park is fantastic for a cool off if you are lucky to get a sunny day, it’s great for kids of all ages with large flumes for the older ones and smaller slides and a whole wet play area for the younger ones.
A wonder around the famous Lego model village is so interesting and the kids loves recognising things in miniature.
One of our favourites is the Pirate show. It is great entertainment with water bombs going off and pirates falling from great heights the kids won’t get bored watching this show.
There are plenty of places to eat, however we find taking a picnic works well. There are bag stores at most of the rides so you can leave it while you are having fun, and there is lots of grassed areas to have a rest.
We tend to visit the park on a weekend before the school summer holiday at this time of year the queuing varys. Most rides are approx 30-45 mins wait, even on a busy day the most we have queued is just over an hour for Pirate Falls and Laser Raiders.
Don’t forget to buy your parking ticket on the way in so you can just go when you are all worn out and you won’t need to queue.
If you buy anything in the store near the entrance they will keep it so you can collect it at the end of the day.
Head to the back of the park (The Dragon Ride) early morning to avoid some queues.
Head to a lunchtime Pirate Show and eat your picnic lunch before or during the show to save some time.
Hilton Basingstoke tends to have the cheapest Legoland Windsor offers. This is about 30 minutes drive but this is our preferred hotel plus there is a service station on the way to stock upon nibbles!
