Legoland July 2010 - Top Tips

A couple of weeks back we took the boys on what appears to be an annual trip to legoland, so here are my top tips:

  • Use Tesco vouchers to pay for your entrance tickets, or keep an eye out on the two for one deals.
  • Pack hats and sun screen!
  • Arrive early, the park opens at 10am, but the shop and entrance open earlier, avoid the queue and turn up early.
  • Pick up a lost parent sticker at the guest services area.
  • Start a back of the park and work forward, this way you will get on more rides.
  • Take a picnic - the food in the park is overpriced and not very nice at all.  We ordered pizza, garlic bread and chips and it was tasteless cardboard and the boys didn't eat it.
  • Take swimwear and a towel.  The splash area in Duplo world is great for little ones.  We went at about 3pm for an hour and it was fab, I even managed to drink a cup of tea!
  • The Clutch Powers 4D show is a must see, we all loved it.  We went at lunch time when the sun was at it its hottest (join the queue early to get good seats)
  • The boys laughed and laughed at the pirate show, a great time and place to eat your picnic!
  • The boys are too small for a lot of the bigger rides, which seemed to have the large queues, when they get bigger I may consider the qbot.  Take treats for the queues as it does get a little boring for children waiting.
  • We did the water rides just before going to the water area at Duplo World, giving the boys clothes time to dry out whilst they enjoyed the water.
  • Remember to get a parking ticket on your way out - yes you now pay £1 for parking.
  • Leave 15 mins before the park closes, or you will get stuck in the traffic leaving the park.
