Legoland have said as well as the new castle hotel, they are getting a new ride for 2017. This should mean ninjago!


It has already been confirmed as part of the Ninjago planning application that Ninjago would be the Resort's 2017 addition in the Theme Park. Please check to see if information has already been published before making a post which only serves to repeat points already made either in this thread, or in other threads within the board.

Although i'm happy that Legoland is getting a new ride, Ninjago is in a sort of way another shooting ride, even though we have Laser Raiders. In my opinion its about time LegoLand Windsor gets a new coaster.

Following consultations last October, Legoland have revealed details of a £95 million investment over the next 10 years.

As reported on SouthParks, the plans include the construction of the planned Haunted House attraction in either 2019 or 2021, plus the addition of a holiday village and improvements to parking at the Resort.

As reported on SouthParks, the Haunted House is now set to be built in either 2019 or 2021 as part of the Resort's 10 year plan.

It's good to see that the Resort have decided to proceed with this attraction as it is something that will add hugely to Legoland's line-up, not to mention provide another indoor attraction, something which is always a plus in the UK given the amount of wet weather we have! I expect there may be some small changes to the plans, but I'm excited to see this finally go ahead after the fights the Resort have had to get permission for it.

Now all they need is Polar X-Plorer and I might consider going there a couple times a year! :P

Its good to know Legoland are expanding, I haven't visited since 2009, so when this gets built I may have to make another trip!

Legoland desperately needs some high capacity attractions. Ninjago will help relieve the pressure on laser raiders and other major attractions. You shouldn't have to queue 70 mins for a log flume!

Legoland have submitted a hybrid planning application for eight different projects, including a potential new coaster in 2019, new holiday village, and an attraction on the Haunted House site. SouthParks News details all the proposed developments.

These are certainly some interesting proposals from Legoland and I'm looking forward to seeing exactly what the new attractions could be, especially with hints of a coaster.

Its always great to see things like this going into the planning departments. I am particularly interested in the 'Barrels' accommodation. I wonder what the price will be on these. Hopefully they will be cheap considering its literally just beds.

At today's Trading & Strategy Update, Merlin announced that a 'The LEGO Movie Land' would be added to all LEGOLAND parks from 2019, with the accompanying visual perhaps giving some hint as to what attractions may be included:

Could this perhaps be the 2019 attraction that was detailed on the outline application submitted by Legoland Windsor earlier this year?

The thing that interests me most is the image of the Flying Theater seats, I do hope the park gets one as they are fantastic. I do wonder which will come first though, this or Haunted House...

That's actually quite bizzare about the flying theatre. I recently, while walking somewhere, was thinking about how good it would be if Legoland would get a flying theater, themed around going around all the Legoland areas/ Lego themes . Anyway, if it does come to Legoland, it could be a fantastic attraction for families as Flying Dreams was by far my family's favourite attraction (even my mum who hates theme parks). The flying theatre seriously is an amazing attraction, for anyone in the family!

So it looks like a smaller version of Maelstrom at Drayton Manor, A Splash Battle and a Flying theatre. Perfect fits for Winsor.

Legoland have stated that they will be announcing details of their 2018 plans at 10am tomorrow on their Facebook page. The What's New page on their website currently says "2018 marks 60 years of the brick and to celebrate we are building awesome new attractions full of LEGO® bricks", alongside allowing guests to sign up for the latest news.

It has been announced the resort will be gaining 3 attractions/ walkthroughs for next year. They are Miniland USA (American buildings), Miniland Around the World (worldwide buildings and Lego Reef (making your own fish via screens, with the ability to interact with it). Bearing mind last year, it was a major investment year (with a new hotel and dark ride) and my expectations were quite low (expecting at most a small spinner or a world's largest build), I am quite happy with this announcement, especially with the fact that Miniland will have something new to do, as it was a bit of a dead area of the park before.

I actually applaud Merlin for their decision to invest in Miniland as it takes the park back to its core which is Lego and construction. It will be great to see some brand new models in this expansion. Hopefully, it will offer inspiration to young and old model makers alike! 

Here is the announcement...

This lovely image was posted by the guys over at Theme Park guide today, Who have described it as extensive maintenance with the trains spotted in the car park, the whole track remove and some of the rail foundations removed, suggesting new track and foundations. I’d certsinly hope so as it wasn’t working on my last visit to the park and that hill walk is a killer. Let’s hope it’s not end of the line.  :lol
