Land of the Vikings

by MostMagicalCat » Mon Jan 22, 2007 12:55 am

Enter the Land of the Vikings* at your peril and prepare for a wet and wild voyage on the Vikings’ River Splash ride! Set sail through uncharted waters as you surge downstream, in a fantasy Viking world created by thousands of LEGO bricks! Join the Viking fleet by jumping aboard the Longboat Invader to find your sea legs then graduate to our huge flagship ride, the Vikings’ River Splash ride, where you’ll be in for a good soaking! Back on dry land, unravel the mystery of our Nordic-themed hedge maze and catch a glimpse of the mischievous Loki in his labyrinth of trickery.


yey get to go to legoland in june for the first time, looking forward to 2 days in the park, so get to enjoy this legorifick trip.

anyone been, is it as cool as it sounds, no thrils but nice family park?

I have always wanted to go, but the price has always put me off.

Give us a report, Cat! The new rapids sure look like fun.

legolands new ride is a new generation Intamin Rapids ride (similar to the one they opened at their denmark park in 06) it is unclear through if the uk version will feature the lift and drop yet through.

Land Of The Vikings

Theres some pics there (not by me).

It looks really good, however I'm not impressed by the lack of theming and at the minute it does seem like a hell of a lot of concrete.

What do you lot think?

It looks a complete mess, it's been rushed just to get it open before the summer is up, so with any luck they sort it all out once the summer is up as it really is hideous, it has the odd bit of nice theming, but it needs a lot added to it for it to fit into the area, as at the moment it looks bland and very out of place.

But I'm confident Legoland can sort it out, they always seem to do well in terms of theming and it quite blatantly has been rushed just to get it open, so I do not think I will judge the ride until next year when hopefully, it has been sorted out.

Concrete jungle :-(

Such a shame, shows how we should appreciate our "Grand Canyon Rapids" however they dont have half as much additional theming as there is on that ride.

The thing I love about the look of that at the minute as it seems to have a lot more elements than Altons rapids.

As well as looking very clean.

Oh Dear, that looks junk!

Definately hasn't inspired me to visit Legoland come October.

Let's hope this isn't a glimpse of things to come for Alton Towers! :|

But Jase, wasn't that a Tussards 'creation'?

There does seem to be more elements to the rapids in Legoland but I never thought i'd say this - I actually prefere the general look of the Congo Rapids :shock: The Legoland ones looks ummm, rushed and unthought of!

Wow, that looks rubbish! Way to much concrete, and it hasn’t been sculpted in to the land like Congo has. Themeing is good in places, but I think the themeing looks a bit out of place, if you know what I mean.

It is probably a good ride, but I just hope that they improve on the themeing.

Doesn't look good. Although, in fairness, a lot of Rapids rides take time to bed in.

Oh dear. It all looks rather too, whats the word? Too ikea-ish, for a ride themed around vikings anyway! I'm not saying its trying to be - but its hardly a Valhalla is it?! The que line looks good though...
