Legoland Windsor – a Review of Our Day at LegoLand
Our day at LegoLand - get a Q-Bot to make your day better!
We went to LegoLand as a treat for our 6 year-old daughter. We’d been been to Legoland before with our son, so knew roughly what to expect. Our son is now 10 years-old, so is probably at about the maximum age for children, after this they start to get a little bored; LegoLand is definitely geared up for the younger visitor.
There are hundreds (well several, not sure if it actually hundreds...) of different rides to go on. I won’t bang on about them all here, if you pop along to the main LegoLand website they can tell you all the different rides available.
What I really wanted to tell you about is the Q-Bot. Now, I’m not the most patient of people when it comes to queuing, but I thought “it’s not for me, it’s for my daughter, so a bit of queuing will be OK”. After queuing for two rides, at 45 minutes each I’d had enough – especially when I’d seen people amble straight to the front of the queue. That’s when I discovered the Q-Bot.
The very start - getting into LegoLand Windsor
Tell me about the Q-Bot
The Q-Bot allows you to join a virtual queue. This means that you select your ride, and you are given a time to go on that ride. In the mean time you’re free to wonder around the park, or indeed queue for another ride. This magical Q-Bot allows you to get many more rides in, and not spend all day in one queue or another.
Is there a downside? Well, as with everything, it’s not all good. You do have to pay extra for the Q-Bot – and at about £10 per person it isn’t cheap. What we decided to do was get two of these Q-bots (which cost us £20). This meant that the children could go on the rides. Or if the youngest needed an adult, she could go on with one of us adults.
Make a short break of it
If you’re traveling any distance you may wish to make a short break out of your trip to LegoLand. If that’s the case it’s well worth having a look round the holiday parks near legoland to see if you can find a short break for you. Holiday parks are great for the children, and will really give them a weekend to remember.
