LEGOLAND has about 5 rides worth doing:

The Dragon
Pirate Falls
Jolly Rocker
S.Q.U.I.D Surfer
Viking River Splash
(of course the Miniland is worth a look)

None of these are "thrilling", but for the most part, they're fun rides. I'd say if you live reasonably close, and can get in for free, why not? Just go on a quiet day, and don't expect thrills.

Would you say I could do say Legoland and Chessington in one day? Haven't been to Chessington for years but if its half a day at each then I could probably knock out both in one day.

I'm going to say no, for a variety of reasons, mainly because the parks have low opening times and are 1 hour apart.

I'd say the two are a day and a half - LEGOLAND only needs half a day, but CWOA will need a full day. I'd do Chessington on a Saturday (in September when it's quiet), and LEGOLAND on the Sunday. This way you can knock two out in one weekend but be home early on the Sunday to prepare/ recover for the working week. :)

It would appear that Legoland are getting a new ride in the new area Heartlake City. A Disk-o, similar to Kobra, but without the bunny hop. Images can be found on the Theme Park Guide website. http://www.themeparkguide.biz/news/wild-ride-emerges-from-woods-of-windsor

I'm surprised this hasn't been advertised more heavily, its been a while since they got a major ride.

That looks like a shockingly bad addition, literally just shoehorned in there! Terrible!

I have to disagree but also agree at the same time. I feel that it is the best thing that could have happened, considering it wasn't what was originally planned for this year. A lot of the parks try to just attract families and some themed area's screaming out for males only. This is an area primarily themed towards the young girls and i think its a great move by the park. Lets just hope they actually get permission for the haunted house as that would be amazing. But i guess we will have to wait and see

I do agree with Jared, it looks like a last minute addition.

However, I guess it is better than JCB land..

Whilst it isn't the best attraction, it is better than nothing. Legoland have been desperate for a new ride and they have Alton-sized planning issues.

I've tried a Disk-O like this at BPB and it was good! I probably wouldn't ride because of the theme, but it looks like a good addition. Slightly squished in, but I think the park need something like this.

I've only been to Logoland once in my entire life and that was when I was about 10 or 11, was fantastic fun, although I would LOVE to go with my nephew in the future we would both love it!
