Legoland Windsor is aimed at children aged between 2-12. The park is kept very clean at all times even when it is busy I have never seen any rubbish. Over the years Legoland Windsor has become very theme park orientated which does defer away from Lego, although most of the rides have a Lego theme. Miniland used to be the main attraction and our little ones love looking around it, the moving trains, boats and their favourite feature, the soldiers or should I say Bop Bops marching outside Buckingham Palace.
There are some fantastic rides for our little ones, Fairy Tale Brook being our favourite. Cruising around on a little boat through fairy tale books is a pure delight, we get to the end and our little ones shout, again, again.
Our little boy is now 3 so he is old enough to drive a Lego car, which is very exciting and a very different thing to do, but ensure you go there first, the queues get very long for these popular cars.
More of our favourite rides include, Atlantis, Dino Safari and the Sky ride where you can see a lot of the park from high up.
Ideal for our age group at Legoland is DUPLO Valley which is aimed at the younger children. There is a Lego city themed play park where the little ones are safe to run around climb onto Fire Engines , Police Vans or whizz down slides, the non – slip artificial grass is fantastic for those toddlers who tend to be a bit unsteady on their feet. In DUPLO Valley there is the splash zone where you and your little ones can get changed and enjoy splashing around a menagerie of DUPLO themed animals from lions to elephant and giraffes to Zebras. So remember to take your swimming things and a towel.
There are plenty of places to eat within the park and the food we have purchased has always been delicious and very hot. But we mainly take picnics, there are many picnic areas within the park but our favourite is to munch on our sandwiches whilst watching the very entertaining Pirates of Skeleton Bay pirate show. Next to the pirate show is a great coffee shop which serves delicious carrot cake. There are many water fountains around the park for you to fill up your water bottles on a hot day. The toilets are immaculate and if you are like me who has two toddlers and you need the toilet, located next to the Skyride entrance is a block of toilets which have a seat and strap within the room so that you can safely put your little ones in and you know they are safe and not trying to touch everything. During holidays and weekends the park gets very busy so if you stay all day leaving can sometimes be rather challenging. I would advise anyone who is leaving at the end of the day to leave at least half an hour before the park closes in order to try and not be delayed home.
Remember to buy your parking ticket before you get in your car so that you can exit through the barriers easily.
