Legoland Windsor with far too many kids

I have been meaning to write this post for a while and I have been putting it off because it meant I had to recall going to an extremely busy theme park with 3 under threes, a 5 yr old and a 12 year old. Alright I did have some extra hands in the form of Hubby, Mum and Stepdad but it was still a bit traumatic.

Actually the day itself was amazing, we had a great time, went on some wonderful rides and it happened to be on one of those ridiculously hot days at the beginning of October.

It has been a few years since I have been to Legoland and it has changed so much since I was there last. Legoland is in Windsor and I grew up in Slough so it was only up the road for us.

There was so much to see that we didnt even manage to get round it all, which Legoland bosses obviously took into account because they gave you a second days entry for free if you went the next day. Unfortunately we were unable to go the next day but there are lots of hotels nearby or you could always stay in some of the great hotels in London that way you could make great use of the free second days entry.

I was hoping to show you photos of the model village which was huge but tiny at the same time and was great to spot landmarks from around the world but my camera batteries died. The girls loved the trains and the other moving parts and enjoyed spotting all the little people and talking about what they were doing.

We had an amazing day and when we went to the giftshop I told each kid they could have £3 each to buy something, this was a bit tricky but we managed to get a pink pen with Elizabeth on it, a mini lego figure, a lego picture frame (with actual lego on it to take off and play with) and a few other bits, it was a bit of a test though as there were not many things for that price.

The only down side to the whole day was that we left as the park closed and it took us over one and a half hours to be able to exit the carpark and get onto the main road. Legoland staff did their best to help so it is obviously a normal occurence and thankfully the children were so tired they fell asleep fairly quickly otherwise it could have been a nightmare wait.

All in all it was an amazing day but it would have been a very expensive day if we had not taken a picnic with us and been given the entry tickets by Superbreak for the purpose of this review. Thank you Superbreak once again you have provided us with an unforgetable family day out.
