In the My Town area at Legoland was the Jack Stone Stunt Show which
mainly consisted of the wacky performers falling into the harbour a
lot. We waited a while for the show to start, of which there are
several throughout the day. The...
...Jack Stone Stunt Show was actually pretty good, there was a fair bit
of a 'pre-show experience' though which consisted of someone riding
round and round the water on a jet-ski, splashing the audience; this
did seem to run on a bit long.
Now the climax to the Jack Stone Stunt Show at Legoland when the
lighthouse blows up and the performers tumbled into the water... yet
We kept referring to the Legoland guide to work out what thrilling ride
to try next, it seemed we weren't the only ones pondering with hand to
mouth, the lady behind has adopted the same ponder, or maybe she's a
Lego lady made out of Lego bricks? Anyway, off to Castleland
next. Now, which way??
Here's Bob marching towards Castleland where we rode on the wild Dragon
Coaster, the nearest thing to a fast and scary ride at Legoland.
Frustratingly it kept breaking down and we kept having to return.
This was also a scary ride - if you're 5. It's the Driving School
in Traffic Land and god help us when this lot get a real car!
Little did we know we'd know all about traffic in a few hours when we
made tracks for home.
Another one here for the younger kids, the Whirly Birds in Explore
Land, which looked fun if you're under 6. Belinda decided Mike
was a big boy now so he didn't get a go on this Legoland
Now this was the highlight for us at Legoland, the magnificent mini
towns and cities in Miniland, all made out of Lego. Mike thought
he was going to see lots of mini skirted women in Miniland! Drats
We thought the attention to detail in Miniland was amazing, with a
London complete with up-to-date figures (at the time) like David Blaine
in his box, Holland with the windmills and a train set running around,
plus many other worldwide areas.
Here's a mini version of Brands Hatch, with the miniature cars racing
around the track complete with lots of revving and zooming noises!
The Legoland website can be found
in our UK tourist resources.
Back in Wild Woods and a chance to try to lose each other in the
Amazing Mazes. This area at Legoland had a Spinning Spider ride
and an Enchanted Forest that we walked round, with Lego animals, of
So while overall we had an enjoyable visit to Legoland,
it was spoilt by a poor travel experience arriving and leaving, see
This is the wonderful waterfall in the maze. We also saw the 4D
show in the Imagination Theatre which involved cars racing out of the
screen at you and it snowing! After this we stopped by the
inevitable gift shop before taking well over an hour to exit Legoland,
despite there being two traffic lanes, as the surrounding road system
in Windsor proved hopelessly inadequate, plus no signage back to the
M25 either! Moan, moan!
