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

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.

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!

Ouch. I hope they get them all up and running asap. I want to visit again this year as I've not been for years and Haunted House would be my main reason for visiting!

It seemed like most things opened yesterday, with Haunted House on a 40 minute queue at one point.

Meanwhile, Legoland are already pretty much at capacity today with pre-booked tickets. Interestingly, there is no ability for passholders to reserve a space. Kind of makes me wonder about the benefit of being a passholder at Legoland sometimes.

Eariler today, SouthParks News reported Legoland Windsor Resort revealed their new VIP Club membership program. The membership includes unlimited access to the Resort, gold wristband instant ride access on every visit, complimentary preferred parking and a LEGO birthday gift. Membership is by invitation only and will cost £650 per membership, per year.

This is the first single Resort VIP membership to be offered since the announcement that the Merlin VIP Annual Pass was coming to an end.

What are your thoughts on this latest membership to be offered by the Resort?

I can't say I'm surprised to see this announced, but at the same time I'm also a little surprised that it is such a high price point. Yes, there is a fair amount included, but given that the recently withdrawn VIP Merlin Annual Pass cost £725 for an individual pass (£625 for a family), and included cold drink refills, unlimited entry, fastrack, 2 celebration tickets and 2 golden tickets, the price of this seems steep in comparison - especially as it is just for one park.

I do wonder if this is some kind of trial to see how this type of product goes down. As much as many people will say this is too expensive, there will also be those more than willing to pay for it and as long as people are willing to pay sadly Merlin will feel justified in selling it.

As reported by SouthParks News, Legoland Windsor have submitted plans for a new family coaster in Duplo Valley. If approved, the coaster will open during the 2020 season.

It's always nice to see a coaster investment (+1 yay), but I'm little concerned about capacity. It's no secret that Legoland is a... busy place to say the least, and the tiny layout means it'll almost certainly be running the one train. Legoland as a park is small and already feels cramped, so hopefully this won't make the park feel like even more of a sardine can. But hey, it's a cute little investment that should hopefully take the weight off of the other coasters.

Is this possibly SBF Visa Spinner?

It seems that this Mack family coaster is the most likely ride type.

That ride actually fits the layout of the proposed details. Think you hit the nail on the head with that one.

Anyone know exactly where in Duplo Land this will be? Is it replacing anything?

It’s going along the path connecting MINILAND and Duplo Valley. I don’t believe there are any existing attractions in the location.

Cheers Lewis, I had a quick look there on Google Earth, figured it could be the only place unless they removed something, was worried Storybrook would go for it, the youngest absolutely loves that ride.

The trees and bushes have been cut down either side of the path connecting Miniland & Duplo Valley, I assume to make way for this new attraction

Moving along nicely then, does anyone have any pictures of the development on-going?
