LEGOLAND Windsor is busy preparing spectacular new LEGO additions for families to enjoy when the theme park opens its doors for the 2018 season on 9 March 2018.
Joining a LEGO filled calendar of events - from LEGO STAR WARS Days to Brick or Treat Halloween and LEGOLAND at Christmas - the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort is excited to announce the 2018 opening of Miniland Explore the World, Miniland USA and LEGO Reef!
A whole new LEGO world of awesome awaits in 2018, with over 2 million LEGO bricks set to be installed into the Resort’s world famous Miniland attraction and LEGO Reef.
LEGOLAND Windsor has submitted a hybrid planning application for 8 projects at the theme park and resort, including 4 new rides, a holiday village and a series of improvements to the entrance area and the car parks.
It is all part of a 10 year development plan at what is now the UK's most visited theme park, with over 2.1 million visitors a year, more than at any other Merlin Entertainments theme park in the UK (1.9 million at Alton Towers, 1.8 million at Thorpe Park and 1.6 million at Chessington).
LEGOLAND Windsor has revealed a 10 year development plan for the theme park and resort.
If the latest plans are successful there will be a £95 million investment between now and 2027, including a new Haunted House attraction and new accommodation and car parking.
The park ran a public exhibition and consultation in October last year and recently the results and amended plans went on display. They aim to submit a full planning application in May.
LEGOLAND Windsor plans to open NINJAGO World with NINJAGO The Ride in 2017 and have submitted a planning application for the new land and attraction.
NINJAGO The Ride is manufactured by Triotech, a world leader in media based interactive attractions, and features cutting-edge technology that enables guests to control the outcome of their adventure through the power of their hand gestures. Through 3D imagery, high-tech sensors and the use of hand movements in a striking motion, up to four riders per car, representing the four main NINJAGO characters, can blast animated fireballs, lightning, shockwaves and ice as they travel through dojos to master their skills before heading into battle. Riders collect points for their training and battle efforts throughout the ride and scores are displayed when their quest is completed. 4D effects such as heat, smoke and wind are also incorporated throughout the adventure, giving guests the ultimate interactive experience.
