Legoland reopens this week with new Christmas attractions – from rides to shows

Legoland Windsor Resort is preparing to reopen this Friday.

From December 4, thrill-seekers can return for fun days out.

The popular theme park has been given a festive makeover in time for Christmas.

Families can catch a glimpse of Santa and his elves who will be flying through the resort to spread some cheer.

Meanwhile, there is a brand-new Holiday Harbour Lights Show in Heartlake City.

Visitors should expect to see music, dancing and a special appearance from Father Christmas himself during this 15-minute show.

They can then dust off their vocal cords and join the LEGO® Friends for a spot of carol singing.

Andrea, Mia, Olivia, Emma and Stephanie will be chanting all your festive favourites including Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Santa Claus is Coming to Town.

Then there will be pantomimes in store too (while availability lasts).

Oh Yes It Is going ahead at the DUPLO® Valley Theatre where families will be able to sit down for a socially distanced show with a twist.

Instead of human performers, puppets re-enact the classic stories of Cinderella and Elves and the Shoemaker.

The following rides are scheduled to reopen: Hill Train, Miniland, LEGO Studios 4D, Castaway Camp, LEGOLAND Express, LEGO City Driving School, L-Drivers, Balloon School, Mia’s Riding Adventure, Laser Raiders, Scarab Bouncers, Thunder Blazer, Desert Chase, Aero Nomad, LEGO NINJAGO™ The Ride, Destiny’s Bounty, Jolly Rocker, LEGO City Deep Sea Adventure, Haunted House Monster Party, Dragon’s Apprentice, The Dragon, Merlin’s Challenge, Spinning Spider, DUPLO Dino Coaster, DUPLO Express and DUPLO Valley Airport.

For Instagram fans, there’s plenty of photo opportunities too.

New for 2020, they can pose by a spectacular dragon shaped Christmas tree made from 150,000 LEGO bricks.

There is also a brand-new Toy Soldier character for children to meet, along with family-favourite Ollie the Dragon who has donned his Christmas Day best.

The reopening of LEGOLAND Windsor is in line with the latest Government guidance and follows confirmation that Windsor and Maidenhead will be in Tier Two from Wednesday 2nd December.

Legoland Resort’s hygiene and safety measures that were introduced in the summer will continue for Christmas.

These include temperature checks on arrival, enhanced cleaning, one-way systems, and social distancing markers in ride queues, shops, restaurants and more.

Karen Glassey, Operations Director at the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort, said: “This year we’re pulling out all the stops to make Christmas extra special for families.

“We’ve been working closely with Father Christmas and his elves and they are looking forward to spreading some festive cheer and saying hello to guests from a safe distance on their new sleigh.

“Everyone’s health and safety remains our top priority as we prepare to reopen for Christmas and we ask all guests to visit our website before they visit so that they know what to expect and to play their part by observing Government advice and our own measures at all times.”

Day tickets start from £35 per person, kids under 90cm go free. All tickets booked for before 23 December will receive a free ticket to return in 2021 (terms apply).

Families can extend the festive fun and stay the night at one of LEGOLAND Windsor’s LEGO-themed hotels with prices starting from £79 per person. All guests staying before Christmas will receive a personalised letter and LEGO gift from Santa.
