If they can't take action against them for trespassing, I imagine they could still take action against them for breaking the contract?

If they only have civil actions available to them, then all Merlin can do is claim damages against them through a court.

Beyond that they'd need proof of an act of aggression or something that would compromise the safety of others before any criminal side could be pursued.

Probably the biggest financial impact they could have on them is to issue a copyright takedown notice on their video.

Don't even know what the fascination with this is. Oh look we went into Legoland at night and it looks exactly like it did during the day, except it's dark, please subscribe.

So it looks like the local council are going to reject the planning application Merlin/Legoland put in for their upcoming expansion.

The council got a legal battering last time with the haunted house ride, I doubt Merlin are going to give up easily this time either.

Hi all,

This is probably a really stupid question but I’ve bever stayed at a merlin hotel before so forgive me if it is.

I’m looking to book the Legoland hotel (probably kingdom room) for July 2019. Is there a time of year that is best to book for the lowest price? Like how Walt Disney World do set offers every year, free dining etc. Which makes it best to book at that time for some people.

If you have a Merlin pass, make sure to sign up to their emails as they do fairly frequent Merlin Holiday Club offers. It's possible that occasionally the offers can also be used for non passholder bookings too. They do seem to coincide with something for non-passholders.

I've just gone through the emails I've had for the last year and there have been fairly frequent sales, maybe every 3-4 months, but that the Legoland rooms have never had more than a 20% discount.

I'm unsure about whether the room prices fluctuate throughout the year.

Thank you, I’m a pass holder (first time I’ve had one) so I’ll keep my eyes out for any emails.

Legoland expect to be at capacity today, with no walk up ticket purchases available today. There are also signs on the M4 and M25 warning that the park is full.

They were also full yesterday!

At around 8:30 AM this morning, LEGOLAND sold out of tickets and no on-the-day tickets were sold as this was before park opening. Some schools go back today so it's quite a surprise

I was actually planning to go to LEGOLAND today so I had to make a last-minute change to visit Chessington (by the way, we got on 7 rides at Chessington including a fastrack until we had to go home at 1)

EDIT: capacity may have been lowered today according to visitors on their Facebook page
I can see why the beornen worship Wicker Man

Very exciting addition and sounds like could be really well-suited to some of their older visitors, with LLWR going for the younger market obviously, it will be nice to see them cater for some of their slightly older visitors too, a great addition alongside rides like Vikings' River Splash and The Dragon, which also cater for that age group

The little sneak peak doesn’t show a great deal but looks pretty good!

I love Hex, so having this just down the road from me is awesome.

Although, I'm not sure how many solo visits I could do. :lol

Having seen this today, the backend sure does look ugly, but thankfully there are some trees around it which should block some of it in the summer. Sadly, it sticks out a fair bit if you're watching the stunt show from in front of Pizza Pasta.

The park was running a Lego Movie 2 event today. Emmet, Wyldstyle and Sweet Mayhem were around for meet and greets, with little to no queues for them in the afternoon.

There was also an opportunity to help build a Lego Movie 2 mosaic.

Image

A scavenger hunt around Miniland, where characters from Lego Movie 2 are hiding with a letter each. If you find all the characters and all the letters, you can claim an event pop-badge.

Image

There was also a scene of Apocalypseburg, with Emmet and company hidden somewhere in the scene.

Image

Image

A fun little event, designed to make the opening few weekends a little more interesting. Especially whilst they finish off construction and winter maintenance on a couple of rides.

Following the launch of The Haunted House Monster Party yesterday, Legoland have announced on their Facebook page that due to technical issues, the ride won’t be open today.

We’re experiencing technical issues with the Haunted House Monster Party, which means that we won’t be in a position to open the ride today (Sunday 14 April). We are working with the ride manufacturer to have the ride back in operation as soon as we can and we’ll keep you informed of any updates on our social channels.

We apologise for any disappointment and hope you will enjoy the many other rides, shows and attractions across the Resort.

Following on from that last post, LEGOLAND have announced that the Haunted House Monster Party won’t be opening until further notice.
That’s not great at all for the park, especially considering right now they also have The Dragon, Vikings River Splash, Atlantis, Pirate Falls, Raft Racers, Scarab- Bouncers and Sky Rider all closed as well!
