LEGOLAND. Originally from Denmark (which I didn't know until a work friend pointed it out!). I actually never knew LEGO came from Denmark... (that shows my ignorance on where things come from!). I have never been to LEGOLAND before, but an opportunity struck when Miss Pinky's little brother, Master H, had to write a 50-word summer project for his school! (Yes, you read right, 50 words!). (This paragraph contains 73 words in total!).
|Forgot to take a picture from the front!!|
So you could imagine what Master H wanted to do during this summer. Yep. Go to LEGOLAND! And that's where we went. If it's your first time, expect to be spending around £100+ per adult (entry fee, train ticket, food, drinks and most likely LEGO toys in the end!). But if you can find special vouchers - then definitely use them! National Rail has a special 2 FOR 1 voucher where you just pay for one adult fee plus rail tickets. Get it now before the offer ends towards the end of the year!!!
Saturday 18th August had to be one of the hottest days of the year in England! :( And queuing for rides in this heat is not fun! Plus it was the weekend! And of course it's the summer holidays for school children... Master H and I went on 6 rides, and Miss Pinky decided to skip 3 of them and continue reading her book... So I did most of the babysitting! :P
|Ride 1 - not very good, sprinklers wasn't working! :(|
|Ride 2 - an ok experience, it will get your tummy swirling around|
Forgot to take a picture of Ride 3 but that was a really fun one!
|Ride 4 - This was fun!|
By Ride 5 I was exhausted and didn't like this 90 minute wait (it was about an hour) for a 3 minute ride to get splashed!
|Ride 5 - 90 minute wait!!!!! Not impressed!!!|
|Ride 6 - Short but sweet|
Here's some pictures of around LEGOLAND...
|Star Wars ^_^|
|A Knight and Dragon|
|Don't forget to recycle!|
|Miss Pinky was so happy with this PINK LEGO...|
|£6 bottle that you can get refilled all day long!|
|These guys are funny :)|
|The loo signs! Hahahahah|
|Miniland - Covent Garden|
|Miniland - London!|
Unfortunately we didn't go everywhere, so I missed out on the driving and loads of other parts of LEGOLAND.
Finally, all three of us were hungry, and we ended up eating at one of the cafes. This is my shoddy Goats Cheese and Mash Pie meal for £7.95. It was not worth its money. Crust was too hard, and the knife couldn't even cut the crust!!!!!!!! I think I have had better pies than this!

My geeky rating (for experience): 3.5/5 (I know I don't usually rate shops and other stuff, but in this post it definitely deserves my rating)
Free refills if you purchase a £6 LEGOLAND water bottle
Long queues for a measly few minutes ride
Bad hot food experience
Toys are too expensive :(
Shuttle bus to LEGOLAND is also expensive :P
