We took a family visit to Lego land resort in Windsor and I have decided to post a review on my site.
Delicious daddy was so excited and woke up extra early! He is a big kid at heart. Olivia wore her pink fairy tale princess dress and we packed up all her necessities for our big day out!
Lucky for us we live less than an hour away from Lego land resort so the journey was straight forward. As well as numerous amounts of free car parks they have a priority parking area which we opted for as we have a baby and the need to rush back to the car would have been less stressful! There was a 6.00 pound fee for this service. We had a BOGOF voucher so only had to pay for one adult and of course 11 month old Olivia entered for free.
The first attraction we checked out was the model village, models of countries and cities from all around the world. Olivia loved this as she likes to watch things move and is very nosey. I really enjoyed the model village also and learnt quite a bit about different nationalities and what their countries look like. We spent a good 30 minutes here and as there is so much to see and look at we could have easily spent longer. Luckily the weather was on our side that day.
Afterwards we checked out our map and headed off to watch a puppet show. The Pied Piper of Hamlyn. The puppets were wonderful and we had a little snack whilst watching the mini theatre show production. There were several productions listed throughout the day.
Unfortunately in Duplo land which is especially for younger visitors both of the main attractions were closed. The fairy-tale ride was being refurbished and they were building a splash park also (Duplo valley splash and play). It looked amazing from what we could see but we were just a few weeks to early. We did snatch a quick ride on the little babies train though!
They have two big pirate shows daily so we watched one of them before lunch. Olivia found the action very entertaining as there were lots of loud sound effects along with pirates splashing and diving into the water!
On our map there are clear symbols as to which rides are suitable for babies. I was amazed at how many things she would be allowed to experience even though the Duplo valley was closed. We went on another train ride, a hot air balloon ride, the carousel, and the submarine. The submarine ride was definitely my favourite and it was great to see all the hidden treasures and tropic fish! Real stingrays too! I even had a ride on the pirate ship whilst Olivia had her bottle.
So would I recommend Lego land?
I think the admission price is a little steep however there are always lots of active promotions and discounts. You can also use your ticket to upgrade to a membership pass which has lots of benefits. There are some lovely spots to sit and enjoy a picnic so I would opt to take my own food every time and of course lockers are available if you do not want to carry anything around. Our pushchair came in handy for storing our picnic!
Legoland is most definitely for all ages from babies to grandparents. It is a fun park and worth a good day out. I hope to go back and enjoy the Duplo Valley with Olivia so watch this space for an updated review.
