Ready, get set, go! The first thing you see as you walk to the park is the the world record breaking Lego tower that they had built between 3 – 8 July 2012. It was amazing to see the result of hard work many people had put in to build this tower.
Legoland is very well organised with different themes that are aimed at the different age groups from younger children to adults. I would say Legoland is more suitable for 3 years old and above as some of the rides are not suitable for parents with babies. Here are some of the rides that my children loved:
It is an outdoor play area with playhouse, slide and climbing frame.
My daughter absolutely loved this ride! It is a gentle ride that goes around the tracks. It is a shame that it only goes around twice on a short track but we did go back and ride this again.

The staff will each ask the children their name and age before they are allowed to proceed to the training area. They will then take a photo for them. More revenue for them! But you’re welcome to take photos yourselves. The children then have a briefing on how to drive a car. First is the seat belt then instruction of how to put your right foot on the pedal and steer. After they drive, they are given a driving licence! Mr K was so excited! They do have a photo booth for a car driving licence but I felt that it was too expensive to spend £8 for one or £12 for two.
This is not suitable for a family of four. As the boat is only allow to take 2 – 3 people. The steering wheel and foot pedal are in at the middle of the boat. I was with the children and both of them wanted to steer. I have to let them take it in turn to hold on to the wheel while I put my foot on the pedal. Each time I had to scream at them to steer and we crashed on both side. It should be a beautiful and peaceful ride but it become more like a bumper car!
This was a really nice surprise! My children were so excited to so many fishes, sharks, coral etc. It’s a shame they couldn’t make the ride a bit longer. Be careful when you come off the submarine as it was on a moving platform.
There are a total of 8 fire engines on site. This is so much of fun. But I would recommend for older children. We took both children up the truck and both of us had to push and pull the lever to make the engine move while the children sat inside. Once we reached the end, we had to pump the water and the children had to aim the fire hose to the fire hole. As Caitlin is too small, she was unable to hold the hose. When the light came on, we had to rush back on the truck and start to working the lever again. With two children to look after we came last, but we all had fun.
There are so many rides to recommend and Lego to appreciate. I could go on and on but I’ll let you discover the other attractions for yourselves.
I would rate Legoland 4.5 star out of 5. It was a great day out for families!
