Insider Tips :
- Rent a “Q-Bot” which allows you to book a place in a queue without actually queueing for rides.
- Avoid school holidays and bank holidays if you can ! If you can’t, it’s not that bad – after all the site is huge (150 acres) and there are over 50 interactive rides.
- Don’t “follow the herd”, you’ll find people tend to visit the attractions in a certain order. Do the opposite and you’ll get round to more of Legolands great features.
- The shops are very busy around closing time. If you shop at lunch time instead you can leave your purchases for pick up at home time.
- Food – an annual pass gets you discount on the food outlets but don’t forget that Legoland is on a huge parkland site so why not bring your own picnic ?
