What to see and do
There are over fifty attractions at Legoland Windsor, some suitable for babies and toddlers, some for older children and teens, and many for all ages. The majority of the attractions and rides are aimed at children aged between 3 and 12. The park is divided into 12 themed zones:
The Beginning bright and colourful zone is where you will find ticket sales, information about the site, helpful assistants and much more. And it is also the location of the Hill Train, a funicular ride, and several gift shops and eating areas.
Located around a large lake at the southern end of the park, Adventure Land is the home of the Atlantis Submarine Voyage, which takes visitors on an intrepid underwater adventure as they join Lego divers to discover the lost secrets of Atlantis. The latest attraction of Adventure Land is the spooky Haunted House Monster Party.
The Imagination Centre
The Imagination Centre is the location of the parks, educational workshops and offers the opportunity for kids to immerse themselves in everything Lego!
Children under the age of three will love Lego Miniland, where the rides and activities have no height or safety restrictions and no tedious queues. Three to five-year-olds can learn to drive on adorable Lego cars or go on the Atlantis Submarine Voyage, although an adult must accompany guests under 1.3m. There is no shortage of rides to appeal to younger guests, such as the Duplo Train and the Duplo Valley Airport.
Fire academy is fun for all the family. Climb aboard a fire engine and work as a team to put out a pretend fire. Your child has the chance to be a real-life hero as fitness, problem-solving skills and speed are tested to the limit!
The Lego Ninjago Ride
One of the newest rides in Legoland, the Lego Ninjago Ride is a thrilling 4D interactive experience that allows you to use hand skills to demonstrate your prowess as a Ninja warrior. You collect points for completing training and battle efforts throughout the ride, and scores are displayed at the end of the quest.
This area has been described as the heart of Legoland. It is suitable for all ages and consists of famous building and landmarks from around the world, all constructed from Lego.
Land of the Vikings
Jump on a raft and race down the rapids of Viking’s River Splash, sail away on stormy seas on the Longboat Invader, get dizzy on the Spinning Spider or lose yourself in the enormous hedge maze of Loki’s Labyrinth.
