We have Merlin passes and Don’t bother going despite living a few miles away.

Yes to an extent it’s part and parcel of visiting places like this. Merlins other attractions aren’t perfect, but you can generally find a tolerable queue on some rides. And somewhere to eat/sit that doesn’t involve >hours queue.

Legoland really takes the proverbial. We’ve twice walked out within an hour. They simply pack too many people in and don’t have enough things to do.

I dont think we’ll renew the passes either. One of the positives is you can go off peak to avoid the queues. But they simply close off lots of attractions and severely cut back on staff (once took us 1 hour and being bounced between 3 shacks to get some donoughts).

Several years ago we had the passes a few times as family visited. But then stopped when everyone had been and done the tourist bit. We got them this year as first little one has hit two years. And quite frankly prices have shot up and what you get in return is piss poor by comparrison.

I understand kids demand it when they see the adverts or friends have been. But I’d recommend Chessington over legoland if you must visit the merlin parks. Alternatively if it’s a nice day pop down to Virginia waters or Great Windsor Park

Hotel may be a bit further than would like but still only £138.

Sure there would be nearer ones on alternative dates.

Yes it is a big jump in price for the extra child.

Could you sneak child & air bed in the room and just buy park admission?

Its also more expensive to do 1 adult & 3 children

Lucky I guess. Either endless queues, even to grab a bite to eat. Or if you go off peak and manage to avoid the queues they shut loads of stuff.

IMHO, Legoland is the worst for queuing, both for car park and for rides. If you go to Peppa Pig World, Cbeebies in Alton Towers, Sundown Adventureland etc, the experience is always much better. Thomas Land in Drayton Manor can come close to being almost as bad for rides.
Used to go every year until last year when arranged to go on two consecutive days using our Merlin Premium Passes

Over two days, we managed to get on four rides due to the queues.

We even ended up leaving early (which we've never done before), just so we didn't end up with tje traffic at the end of a long boring day of standing and waiting.
We did go in the August school holidays mind you so were maybe just a bit unlucky, so probably still OK off-peak.

Was surprised how many able bodied "disaabled' people managed to get to the front via the out gate, which sealed it for me I'm sad to say.

If you go during the week, its about 20% better. However, if you go to other parks during the week, its about 500% better (i.e. 5 times the number of rides if not more). I really don't know how Legoland stays busy during the week out of term. During the school holidays when you go, you can get free returns up until around mid-October, so school has already started. Maybe its because the ticket is free, but even when we came back and mid week on school days, its packed. Maybe because the other people all had very young children or something. Not sure, but its just not fun at all. It's as you say, a couple of rides per day really - most of the time the queues are so long you don't join the queue in the first place.

22miles that a long way

Well at least if you don't have a car
Legoland is a great idea spoilt by Merlins greed... not enough rides have been built and the rollercoaster is slow to load and tiny in size. They overload the park hoping we won't mind the two hour queues for one ride.

there are queues for everything...even to purchase the q-bot thing (oh the irony). The fact the q-bot thing exists proves how greedy they are.

The worst part is the parking? There are hundreds, including my own, damning reviews on trip advisor. In my case this was due to a 90 minute wait to exit the car park. If I had paid c.£10 more for premier parking I might have avoided this. It's outrageous and I will never revisit despite having two Lego mad sons.

The Florida park (also run by the same cowboys) gives Florida theme parks a bad name, and pales into insignificance compared with Disney etc. Customer service was appalling with disinterested staff.
If you are thinking of going In school holidays then honestly save yourselves a fortune and go anywhere but here.

rant over...(sorry)
Woah avoid this place like a plague then
It was better when it was windsor safari park
Many fond memories there especially the whale show lol
If you know you know
Booked last year for two days for both my son's birthdays in may but went on a Thursday and Friday while the kids were still in school and stayed in a hotel close to the park. Found the park really pleasant to walk around with it being term time and really enjoyed the pirate show they put on, they did have a few school trips there though being as it was term time but was amazing overall and the kids loved it. Would love to go again around the same time

Completely agree.

I took my kids 18 months back on an inset day as thought the queues might be less.

It was horrible. Massive queues for everything. What particularly irritated me was the way the Qbot system worked. It seems that there is no limit to the amount sold.

It’s possible to be in a queue for over an hour for a ride and just when you think it’s your turn 30 Qbots jump right in front of you. I felt like a second class citizen!

Of course many places allow these type of ‘queue jumping’ methods. Personally I prefer the Disney approach where everyone is treated equally by being given 3 fast passes each.

I won’t be taking the kids back. Such a shame as I actually quite like the Lego brand.
Imagine the disappointment in your child’s face when you tell them they are going to legoland but not staying in the hotel instead staying in a Travel Tavern down the road
Aahhaaaaaaaaaaaa

This is the worst place for queues EVER. Really didn't enjoy our visit which was the weekend after the kids started back to school in September. Thought it might be a little quieter....How wrong we were. We haven't been back since. I don't mind a bit of queuing as this is part and parcel of theme parks but this place is ridiculously excessive. And don't get me started on the q-bot system!
All in term dates? No good for most. I'm seeing £300 for family of 5 even on a INSET day.
We went on a weekday in September and had the best time! We bought one refillable drinks bottle between us, had big breakfast at hotel both mornings and then went for tea with our tastecard once we left the park. Hardly spent any money, went on every single ride. Loved it.....in contrast we did an Alton Towers “festive break” over Christmas and that was dire, complete waste of money.
Took our kids here last year. Hated almost every second of it. It was awful. Money grabbing at it's worst, 90 min queue to just get on a rubbish fairground type ride. Think we managed to get on 3 of the big rides. The only respite was the time they spent on the splash pad, shame it wasn't warmer, we' have just stayed there. Couldn't wait to leave. You honestly could not pay me to return.
I cant see kids eat free dinner at hotels.....only breakfast......last year we booked and got free kids dinner ag hotel aswell as breakfast
I think in a few weeks you may get c10% off these prices.....happened last year

Well we did this last year booked the deal and for us it was a dreadful experience . The hotel was pants the food was overpriced and not very good . Legoland is tired and run down we booked two days but it became apparent on the first hour of still queuing for the first ride that you needed a Q bot . The cheapest let’s you walk around and tells you when it’s time to go on the ride . There’s a middle priced one then there’s the top of the range one at 80 quid each . We bought two and did every ride several times with no waiting at all . Some rides had a 2.5 hour wait. If that’s you thing go for it but if you have children it’s an expensive trip . TBH get a q bot it’s dear but worth it . Windsor is lovely and worth a look we only did one day in legoland you need a mortgage for two . We won’t be going again .
We went August Bank Holiday (but did the Monday and Tuesday rather than that weekend), queues for food were terrible, we ended up at coffee shop at the entrance in the end as everywhere was rammed. Kids loved the hotel, and we loved it because then you don't have to join the hour long queue to leave at the end! When we went first time I couldn't believe how bad the car park exit strategy was (ie. it being nonexistent). We are going again soon as both kids loved it, but this is because the grandparents are treating them for birthdays.

I can only comment from personal experience. It was free entry for us with Merlin passes (and within a few miles), but it was so bad we didn’t bother going anymore.

For a 9 year old i’d recommend Chessington over LegoLand, presuming it’s open (out of season they usually just have zoo days, but they do open fully on some weekends). From our experience less densely packed and you can get away from the madness at the zoo/sea life (still can be busy in those areas but atleast tolerable). Ifhe she likes animals perhaps you can do a zoo experience.

Also you can finish the day by having a drink at the hotel. If it’s a nice day you can sit outside and might get a glimpse of a few animals (not sure why the don’t let more out to wonder to be honest).
Edited by: "Mentos" 8th Jan
Very, very expensive day out because you are bombarded Lego to buy. Not a pleasant experience. I agree to to a good zoo and buy some Lego......much cheaper and more enjoyable.
Many popular attractions you visit, it will always have queues for standard users. Chessington and LegoLand are the worst as I think they allow too many people with not enough rides/seats. The most rubbish and overrated ride is the Ninjago in Legoland.

My 7 year old has done both of these and I think I wont take him to these places any more unless there is a drastic change in queue times.

IMO a place like Longleat is better value for money despite having no rides!

We've been twice in the last 3 years, last October being the most recent with 9 year old twins and a 12 year old. They all loved it. We did not stay over. We used the vouchers off a kellogs box.

If you go when it's busy, I can fully imagine it is a living hell. But we went in the week as our half term is out of sync with most of the country, and there were hardly any queues. As a place it's great, but most of the rides would not be worth a long wait. Most we waited was 20 minutes, and the park wasn't deserted,

I live in East Riding of Yorkshire and usually we are out of sync with other school half term dates too. I personally love LEGO as does my daughter now 12 but every year I read what everyone says on here and can fully imagine that it would be a nightmare so we never go, plus the fact that I'm disabled and can't stand for long without Keeling over.
