News: Legos & Vikings, does it get better than this?

Like so many kids I grew up playing with legos, and still think they're one of the coolest toys ever. Now this is my idea of FUN!

Celebrate the longest day of the year with a Viking fest
18 June 2008

On Saturday 21 & Sunday 22 June come and celebrate the summer solstice, Danish style, at LEGOLAND Windsor’s Viking Midsummer Fest, when the park will be invaded by Viking to mark the longest day of the year.

The event, sponsored by VisitDenmark and the Danish Agricultural Council, will involve a weekend of activities including exciting re-enactments of Viking battles, realistic encampments so guests can get an insight into the lives of Viking warriors plus there’ll be a side-splitting family entertainment show in the park’s Circus Tent entitled ‘Boris & Olaf’s Excellent Adventure’. Over the weekend there will be lots of competitions taking place including a treasure trail around the park, to win a family trip to Denmark and 5,000 goodie bags to give away, courtesy of VisitDenmark, at ‘The Beginning area’ of the park!

The highlight of the weekend will take place on Saturday night at 7 o’clock when families can gather around the Adventure Land lake to watch a magnificent Danish-themed midsummer bonfire accompanied by a live performance from the Danish singing sensation Camille Jones. As a special treat LEGOLAND will stay open until 9 o’clock on Saturday night, giving families even more time to experience some of the park’s most popular rides and attractions.

The Midsummer Fest marks the beginning of incredible Viking-themed summer at LEGOLAND Windsor. New for 2008, guests can explore the brand new Land of the Vikings, featuring the park’s biggest and wettest ride to date, the Vikings’ River Splash. Another exciting addition is the Longboat Invader that defies guests to test their sea worthiness as they sway back and forth on a Viking Longboat that sits on a ‘U-shaped’ track and rotates in two directions.

Value for Money Annual Passes
LEGOLAND Windsor offers one of the best family days out in the UK and was voted Best UK Attraction for Children**. With so much to see and do, one day is never enough and the best way to visit again and again is with an Annual Pass, which works out cheaper than visiting twice.

LEGOLAND Annual Passes represent real value for money and prices start from just £36. Families can also take advantage of the new Merlin Pass, priced at £125 per person and offers 12 months unlimited access to all UK Merlin Entertainments Group attractions including the London Eye, Alton Towers and Madame Tussauds.
