HI THERE

JUST COME BACK FROM OUR FIRST TRIP TO LEGOLAND WINDSOR IT WAS FANTASTIC AND I WANTED TO PASS ON SOME TIPS BASED ON OUR EXPERIENCE ....

BEFORE YOU GO

GET HOLD OF SOME BUY ONE GET ONE FREE TICKETS FOR LEGOLAND - TESCO ARE DOING SOME AT THE MOMENT BUT THERE ARE BOUND TO BE SUCH OFFERS IN THE FUTURE - CHECK ON EBAY OR GOOGLE 'HOT DEALS UK' FOR A VOUCHER CODE

DRESS YOUR KIDS IN BRIGHT COLOURS SO YOU CAN PICK THEM OUT OF A CROWD QUICKLY ... LEGOLAND IS SO EXCITING YOU SHOULD PLAN ON HAVING THEM RUN AWAY AT LEAST ONCE DURING YOUR VISIT - HAVE A PREARRANGED MEETING POINT IF YOUR CHILD IS OLD ENOUGH TO UNDERSTAND

TAKE LIGHTWEIGHT WATERPROOFS OR POLYTHENE PONCHO IN YOUR BAG - YOU WILL GET WET ON THE RIDES!!

TAKE UV SUNSUITS IF IT WARM ENOUGH TO USE THE SPLASH ZONE

TAKE A PACKED LUNCH -THE FOOD IS REVOLTING AND EXPENSIVE AND THERE IS A GREAT OUT DOOR THEATRE AREA TO WATCH A SHOW WITH JET SKIS AND PIRATES AND ALLSORTS WHILE YOU HAVE YOUR PICNIC

WHEN YOUR THERE

IMMEDIATELY ON THE RIGHT AS YOU GO IN YOU WILL FIND 'LOST PARENT STICKERS' FILL IN YOUR MOBILE NUMBER AND FIX TO YOUR KIDS BECAUSE THERE IS SO MUCH EXCITING STUFF THEY WILL RUN OFF ALL OVER THE PLACE !! ... BUT BE WARNED MOBILE RECEPTION IN LEGOLAND WINDSOR IS AWFUL ESPECIALLY IN THE CASTLE AREA WHERE THERE IS NO SIGNAL (AS OF SEPT 07)

START YOUR VISIT AT THE FAR END OF THE PARK AND WORK YOUR WAY BACK IN ORDER TO MINIMISE QUEUING.   EXPLAIN THE RATIONAL OF THIS TO YOUR KIDS BEFORE YOU GO BECAUSE YOU WILL HAVE TO DRAG THEM PAST LEGO DINOSAURS AND LOTS OF OTHER EXCITING STUFF EN-ROUTE TO THE FAR END BUT YOU WILL EASILY SHAVE AND HOUR OFF QUEUING TIME AND WILL HAVE MORE TIME TO ENJOY YOURSELF

MOST ATTRACTIONS DIVIDE INTO UNDER 5'S AND OVER 5'S IF YOU HAVE KIDS IN BOTH AGE RANGES YOU WILL HAVE TO QUEUE FOR TWO SETS OF DRIVING LICENCES TWO ROLLERCOASTERS ETC

 LEGOLAND ARE UNDERSTANDABLY VERY STRICT ON HEIGHT RESTRICTIONS YOU WILL SEE STAFF WITH METAL POLES WHICH HAVE TWO BRANCHES STICKING OUT OF THEM AT RIGHT ANGLES INDICATING TWO HEIGHT MEASUREMENTS - THE LOWER MEASUREMENT IS THE HEIGHT RESTRICTION IF A KID IS ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT THE HIGHER MEASUREMENT IS THE HEIGHT YOUR CHILD HAS TO BE TO GO ON THE RIDE UNACCOMPANIED.

FOR THE ABOVE TWO REASONS IT IS USEFUL TO HAVE AT LEAST TWO ADULTS TO SPLIT THE QUEUING ... BUT IF IT IS JUST YOU THEN DON'T WORRY BECAUSE WHEN YOU REACH THE FRONT OF THE QUEUE THE ATTENDANTS WILL LET YOU GO ON THE ATTRACTIONS HOWEVER MANY TIMES IT TAKES TO GIVE EACH CHILD AN ACCOMPANIED RIDE - CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW SICK YOU WILL FEEL AFTER A TUB OF CANDYFLOSS AND 3 ROLLERCOASTER RIDES IN A ROW !!!

WHEN YOUR KID GOES TO THE LEGO DRIVING SCHOOL THEY WILL BE PHOTOGRAPHED FOR THEIR DRIVING LICENCE WHICH YOU CAN BUY FOR £3 AT THE END OF THEIR RIDE .... THIS OK FOR ONE KID BUT SOON MOUNTS UP WHEN YOU HAVE 3 OR MORE ... SO MY TIP IS TO GET A FREE BLANK LICENCE FROM THE KIOSK AND COMPLETE YOUR OWN DETAILS AND STICK YOUR OWN PHOTOGRAPH IN FOR FREE !

PLAN TO TAKE THE CABLE CAR BACK UP THE HILL BECAUSE IT IS KNACKERING AND THERE IS A NICE SWEET SHOP AT THE TOP !!

IF YOU HAVE A HAD A WONDERFUL TIME YOU MAY WANT TO CONSIDER GETTING AN ANNUAL PASS ... THERE ARE OFTEN DEALS WHERE YOU CAN TRADE IN YOUR DAY TICKET FOR £18-£30 FOR AN ANNUAL PASS ... AND IF YOU RENEW AFTER A YEAR THERE ARE DEALS TO REDUCE THE FEE STILL FURTHER 

CHECK OUT THE SALE SECTION IN THE GIFT SHOP FOR SOME GOOD DEALS OTHERWISE I RECOMMEND NOTING DOWN THE NUMBERS OF KITS THAT TAKE YOUR FANCY AND BUYING THEM ON EBAY ! YOU CAN ALWAYS DOWN LOAD THE BUILDING INSTRUCTIONS

HAVE A FAB VISIT .. IN TRUTH IT IS HARD TO DO IT ALL IN ONE DAY SO IF YOU CAN GET A COUPLE OF DAYS PASS IT IS BETTER
