Photo TR: Legoland Windsor - 11th July 09

Postby StealthFan » Sun Jul 12, 2009 1:55 pm

Yesterday I took a trip down to Legoland to get some footage in HD and meet up with Will & I am too stupid to spell Steel Vengeance so I'll just write SteVen and pretend I'm being cool.

I haven't been to Legoland in about 2 years so I was looking forward to going and seeing how much the park had changed in that time. I was very impressed with the new additions to the park and the overall atmosphere was amazing. I will explain more about the day and what I thought of the park in the photos below.

After arriving late due to traffic I met up with Will & I am too stupid to spell Steel Vengeance so I'll just write SteVen and pretend I'm being cool.

And we went over to Q-Bot central to pick up our first ever Q-Bot! It's so cute! (The Q-Bot not me)

We booked our first ride of the day as Laser Raiders!

Laser Raiders is in the Kingdom of the Pharaohs and the entrance is what used to be the Circus tent.

Me being as clever as I am did not take any photos of it but I will have the POV up very soon.

After Laser Raiders we booked a slot for the Dragon and headed over there.

"Im angry Lego Knight, don't mess with me as I have no shoulders or elbows, just spheres! Grrrrrrrrrr"
DSC01369.jpg
"Hey ladies check out my tounge, don't mind my friend who is making out with a Lego cup, he has a cup fetish."
DSC01374.jpg
*sigh* "I've been doing this job for 11 years now and I still havent managed to get a woman or move out from my parents house"
DSC01261.jpg
I am too stupid to spell Steel Vengeance so I'll just write SteVen and pretend I'm being cool: "Hey, check me out i'm on Smile Cam"

Will: "Oh someone just pinched my backside"
DSC01263.jpg
I am too stupid to spell Steel Vengeance so I'll just write SteVen and pretend I'm being cool's expression still has not changed and will now seems to have had something forced some place he was'nt expecting.
DSC01266.jpg
Next up on the Q-Bot list for us was Dragon's Apprentice.

I am too stupid to spell Steel Vengeance so I'll just write SteVen and pretend I'm being cool: "Yea i'm cool I can handle this beast"
Will: "Holy crap, do I have to take that tunnel"
Me: "I've taken bigger tunnels then that in my time"
DSC01267.jpg
Will is so happy he took the tunnel he wanted to make sure everyone knows, before we moved onto Pirate Falls!
DSC01360.jpg
Which is exactly what we did do!
DSC01361.jpg
We used this entrance but beware you must be a silver Lego dude to use it.
DSC01273.jpg
"Holy Crap I'm naked, but after all these years I still have'nt thought to get the clothes off the washing line and put them on"
DSC01276.jpg
BANG! and the pirate with the cannon fires his gun so hard that he fell back off!
DSC01277.jpg
This one is for you Steve
DSC01281.jpg
This is how wet you get on Pirate Falls!
DSC01282.jpg
DANGER! If you are caught to be breaking any TPR rules the following WILL happen to you!
DSC01285.jpg
DSC01291.jpg
Will kept himself ammused between rides by drinking Alien urine, which apparently tastes very nice.
DSC01292.jpg
On our way to the next and most competative ride of the day we took the hill train, which for the first time ever I have seen with no queue.
DSC01294.jpg
After going up the hill we arrived at the one and only Lego Racers!!
DSC01295.jpg
This dude tried to point us in the wrong direction but we knew better then to trust someone who has a Lego visor that isnt made of clear Lego bricks.
DSC01340.jpg
This is what I really was wishing the sexy ride ops would be wearing but no such luck.

BTW sorry Divv but no photos of Larry but there is plenty of video!
DSC01302.jpg
After our intense race we headed over to Fire Academy, which is where my photo TR will end for the moment. But stay tuned for Part 2 where I will introduce you to Larry and have a POV of Laser Raiders ready for you all!

Question: was the Jungle Coaster running on your visit? On the Legoland website they say its closed and a further update will be posted. Any idea what the problem is? I'm planning on visiting Legoland over the next few weeks so any heads up would be appreciated.

What's the best new attraction from your recent trip? Did you have a go on the Viking River Splash and if so what's your opinion of this attraction? Great photos - thanks for posting.

The Jungle coaster was not running on my visit and looked like it may be down for while as it had a hired in cherry picker there and the park are very sure that it will not open soon. My guess is they are waiting for a part to be delivered.

The best new attraction is defiantly Viking River Splash and will be featured in the next part of the update, which will be tomorrow along with Lego Racers pre-show and driver creation video plus Laser Raiders pre-show and POV.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

Is Lego Rocket Racers a 3D show? I was there in early June but only had 2 hours there. So all I rode were the 3 coasters, Fire Academy, and Laser Raiders. Being that this is the first Lego Land I've ever been to, I was pretty disappointed that I didn't really get to enjoy the park. :| But at least I got the credits.

Thanks for the update - hope they get it fixed soon. Some additional River Splash pics would be great.
