LEGOLAND Windsor - Wahay!
We visited LEGOLAND on Sunday 10th March as the resort prepares to open for Spring and it didn’t disappoint.
My two boys were all talk of the Star Wars Miniland and poor Harry (4 and a half with the occasional attitude of a cornered rhino) seemed to think that this was the reason we’d come all the way from Brighton. He was therefore mildly put off when we skirted around Star Wars and headed for some of the other rides available. His disappointment was momentary however as we veered left down the hill towards the Imagination Centre and the suspended mono-rail ride that we found there.
After this we had tickets for a new short film from Lego promoting their latest range. The Legends of Chima 4D film is a great experience. We’d never been to a 4D film before so weren’t sure what to expect, but officially what you get is some sort of physical addition to the film, like wind, rain, vibration, smells etc. For Legends of Chima the audience was sprayed with water as our heroes flew under a waterfall, wind as we tore through the air and bursts of flame from the front of the stage. The kids loved it and I must admit to being pretty fascinated myself. I’m not sure if there’ll ever be a call for Raging Bull 4D but for this short 12 minute film it was perfect. The 3D was great too and furnished us with a couple of key scenes that had the kids ducking!
