I want legoland windsor to cover up their waterpark or get an indoor one (like ATR). I'd also like legoland to get another family coaster.

The following is from Screamscape

Merlin Entertainment, Warner Bros. Consumer Products and The LEGO Group will bring "The LEGO Movie 4D A New Adventure" attraction to life starting in January 2016 to LEGOLAND theme parks and LEGOLAND Discovery Centers around the world.
The new 4D film will actually premier at the LEGOLAND Florida Resort on Jan. 29th, 2016, followed by LEGOLAND California on Feb. 6th, 2016. From there it will open at LEGOLAND Windsor, Billund, Germany and Malaysia and later it will expand to all 11 LEGOLAND Discovery Centers worldwide.
The new production will bring back several popular characters (and their voices) from The LEGO Movie such as Elizabeth Banks as Wyldstyle, Alison Brie as Unikitty, Nick Offerman as MetalBeard, and Charlie Day as Benny who will face off against a new villain named "Risky Business" voiced by Patton Oswalt.
“The LEGO Movie 4D A New Adventure” follows a new journey for Emmet, Wyldstyle, Unikitty, Benny and MetalBeard after they receive a mysterious invitation leading them to a new theme park where all of the rides are based on the characters’ adventures in “The LEGO Movie.” But not all is as it seems as the heroes are once again thrust into the middle of an evil secret plot, only this time, it will be up to the audience to use their Master Builder skills to help save them! Using elements such as wind, water, smoke and special lighting effects, the larger-than-life experience brings the film’s main characters, Emmet and Wyldstyle, back together with their friends for another awesome adventure.

I see other sites have finally caught up with news SouthParks reported back in February ;)

It's good to see Merlin keeping the 4D offering fresh, and the LEGO Movie is a natural choice for them to bring to the Legoland parks. I'm sure it will be very popular :)

This doesn't seem to have been picked up on yet, but in Merlin's recent Preliminary Results and Strategy Update presentation it was stated that 'Ninjago - the Ride', which is opening at Legoland Billund this year, will be added to all parks by 2017. Presumably Merlin are looking to capitalise on the potential success of the upcoming Ninjago movie as they did and continue to do so with The Lego Movie.

Looks like Windsor may get this next year ahead of 'Ghost - the Haunted House', so shall just have to keep an eye out for a planning application!

I read the first sentence and got hyped, mainly because of the ninjago sky fly that already exists, but then I saw the picture.

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.

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.
