Review: Legoland, Windsor
17:15 18 October 2012
It’s official. Legoland is not just for children. And there’s an extra treat running for the rest of the season, which ends on November 5. The Windsor theme park has installed a new Brick or Treat attraction to get into the Halloween spirit.
Creepy attractions have transformed the resort into a spooky place to visit in the lead up to the scariest day of the year. Fantastic prizes can be won by solving the clues on the Brick or Treat trail and there will also be Lego building workshop with a theme fitting in with the holiday.
The season finishes off the Lego Monster Fighter Fireworks: the evil Lord Vampyre awakes his army of monsters and is escaping with all the moonstones. The Monster Fighters must stop them before they complete their evil plan to eclipse the world forever. It’s sure to bring the 2012 season to an end with a bang. This display is only available on selected days unfortunately, so visit the website to find out when.
There are still the old favourites to keep you occupied the whole day - the Lego village featuring miniature parts of London and other iconic parts of the world springs to mind, which I imagine would be much more fun in good weather. Look out for the ghosts doubt around miniland for an added scary touch.
A range of rollercoasters and rides are on offer for the more thrill-seeking adventurer including the Dragon Coaster and Pirate Falls and a new Star Wars experience, alongside areas of the park devoted to Vikings, knights, pharaohs and knights.
The shop at the end (or beginning, depending on your preference) gives you the perfect opportunity to part with hard-earned money, with any conceivable Lego concept or accessory on offer to round off a fulfilling day.
For families with children of any ages or even slightly older people who want to revisit their childhood, this is the perfect autumn day out.
