Legoland Windsor – Review

We had a great weekend at Legoland Windsor in June 2019. We were lucky to have stayed at the Legoland Hotel.

Check out our review of our themed room here: https://1ststeps.blog/2019/06/20/legoland-hotel-themed-room-and-lego-treasure-hunt/

Miniland was breathtaking with loads to see. The Nasa rocket took off every 6 minutes. There was a racetrack with cars that would race, moving vehicles, sailing boats and sculptures from all around the world.

The Star Wars Experience was fascinating. Even if you are not a Star Wars fan, the sculptures reenacting parts of the film was yet again amazing!

Duplo Valley was a large area that has a puppet theatre, a splash park, rides and a big play area called Bricksville. The splash park is fab in the warm weather to cool the kids down.

One of our favourite family rides was Fairytale Brook. The children loved it. It was literally sailing through all the classic fairy tales with some very impressive lego animatronics and sculptures.

Heartlake City has some lovely shops, an All You Can Eat Pizza restaurant and shows throughout the day. We caught the Pirate Ship show but unfortunately we missed the Lego Friends show. We hired a buggy here also.

We would definitely recommend a visit to Legoland. Such a fun place and we were in awe of the talents of the Lego model builders.

A Cyclops Calf and a 2 Headed Sheep skeleton!

Our Review of the Skeleton Museum at the Orlando Icon Park

I wasn’t sure if this would be a bit scary for my child but it wasn’t. He absolutely loved it. Although a bit morbid, this highly educational exhibit is extremely well presented and although the Cyclops Calf skeleton and the 2 headed sheep skeleton freaked me out a little, it wasn’t as creepy an exhibit as I expected.

Check out our video footage here:

Educational

We purchased a combo ticket with the Orlando Icon so it only cost approximately $5 each as we were doing the Orlando Icon anyway. Plus the Orlando Icon Park was a lovely place to spend time. Follow this blog for a review of the park.

This is also a great rainy day idea.

Cyclops calf

The flesh eating beetles are also fascinating to watch!!!

Legoland Hotel – Our Review

Wow!! What a fantastically themed hotel! We were really looking forward to this trip and it did not disappoint (apart from the weather, but hey, we are in Britain). The structure was fantastic and the kids loved all the Lego models that were dotted around. There was a shop, restaurant, swimming pool, bar, and entertainment which ran from 5 – 8.30pm each night. My other half was also very excited about the Playstation Room!!

Hotel tour

The hotel had it’s own entrance to the theme park and we were provided with brochures upon arrival to plan our visit. The restaurant was all you can eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Checkout was also very easy as we only had to post the keys. The shop sold mainly Lego toys, t-shirts etc. Of course, the rooms were fabulously themed and included a Lego Treasure hunt for the kids. A room tour blog coming soon!!

We visited on a Sunday and Monday in June, queues were approximately 20 -30 mins per ride. The one night, two day stay cost us £414 for a family of 4 with breakfast included. This was definitely worth it. A fab experience for the whole family!
