We were lucky enough to be invited to the LEGOLAND to a screening of LEGO DC: Batman Family Matters and to play through the catalogue of LEGO Games. The event was at the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort Hotel in Windsor. This hotel is amazing! My girls were so impressed. We definitely want to come back and stay here in the future.

LEGO DC: Batman Family Matters Event
The girls had a great time at the event. The girls took part in a series of activities such as dressing up as a wide-range of DC characters, so they decorated their capes, masks, wrists as well as getting some tattoos.
They also played games to win some prizes. And of course, they had the chance to enjoy all the favourite LEGO Games including Harry Potter, Star Wars, Marvel, Batman and more.
The press breakfast was really nice and we got to eat yummy pastries, sandwiches, waffles, pancakes, etc all within the LEGO Batman theme. Then we got an exclusive first look at the animated adventure LEGO DC: Batman Family Matters, which was released on 19th August. It was a great event for the film, we all really enjoyed it!
To make things even better, we were then able to spend the day at the park, which was the most exciting thing for us as we have never visited before. We were kindly given fast track tickets which made our experience much better as we were able to literally try pretty much all of their rides. Of course, there were a few we didn’t do but we tried to do as many as possible.
The first ride we went on was actually a new one for 2019. It was The Haunted House Monster Party. This ride was a little bit scary. I think it was probably because we were not expecting what was going to happen but in the end, we had fun. I won’t tell you what it does because then it will ruin the experience but just bear in mind it will be something different.
In this ride, Lord Vampyre loves flying and being upside down like a bat! It’s the best bit of being a Vampire! He’s going to use a fang-tastic potion to turn the house upside down! On your way out there was Lord Vampyre waiting for us for a photo opportunity so the girls posed next to him.
Next up was Atlantis. Here you get on a world-first LEGO submarine ride and explore the ancient ruins of Atlantis. It was really fun. The girls loved it. There were a lot of lego art pieces like fishes, treasure boxes, etc.
We then headed over to Coastguard HQ. Here we took the wheels of 2 battery-powered boats and steered our way around a careful course of waterways avoiding various obstacles. We got separated here. Nick and Sienna went into one boat and then Bella and I went to the next one. This is a very gentle and pleasant ride. The girls really enjoyed getting behind the wheels here.
After that, we went to Brickville. Sienna was desperate to play here. It is an interactive play village. Sienna played at the Brickville Fire Station, DUPLO Valley Police Station, Clown Cakes Shop and Princess Castle. She loved it.
We saw Splash Safari and we were all super upset that we didn’t bring swimsuits and towels. It was a shame as it looked like a lot of fun. We even tried to buy some swimsuits for the girls but they were too expensive that it wasn’t worth it. So after a little bit of time, the girls understood that we should carry on doing what we could and we will come back on another time to do this par.
So we decided to go to Fairy Tale Brook. Wow, this ride is very cool and the LEGO displays here are amazing! This is a gentle boat trip perfect for all the family. They tell you the story of famous characters such as Red Riding Hood, the Three Little Pigs, etc. All your fairy tale favourites come to life here. We loved it.
While Bella and daddy had a little break having ice cream, Sienna and I went to Balloon School. This was a fun ride going up and down in a hot air balloon.
Moving on to Another Part of the Park
We went out of this section and walked towards the other side of the park. This time we get into LEGO Ninjago: The Ride. This was fun. You get on a ride and you will be in the middle of a battle. It is a 4D interactive ride. You will have to put your ninja skills to the test and battle through ice, wind and fire. This was interesting. We liked it but didn’t love it
Outside the LEGO Ninjago: The Ride, it was Jolly Rocker. This was a high swinging pirate galleon. I didn’t get on this one myself but the girls and Nick did and they loved it.
We walked through Miniland. This area is amazing. So impressive to see everything. Nearly 40 million LEGO bricks have been used in this section to create famous landmarks from around the world. We loved it. It is huge.
Next, we went on the Sky Rider ride. This ride has the best views ever. You can overlook the Miniland area from above. The cars travel around on an aerial track at a height of around 20 feet above the ground.
Then we headed up to Viking River Splash. This was so much fun. We went through uncharted waters and surged downstream in a fantasy Viking world created by millions of Lego bricks. We were here with another family as you can fit about 8 people there. This ride was very cool.
Then it was time for lunch. We had really packed a lot into our day! We ate at their Heartlake Cafe. It was okay but I think it could be better. The girls Tikka Masal wasn’t very tasty but Nick loved his baked potatoes with beans. I ordered a toasty. That is always good anywhere you go.
To get down the hill we jumped on The Hill Train. This was very handy as we didn’t have to walk down the hill and we were at the other end very quickly.
We did The Dragon too. This ride has a lot of turns and twist and goes pretty fast. We travelled through the heights and depths of the Castle and you will see an animated dragon. It was an adrenaline rush. We loved it.
We then went to the Pirate Falls Treasure Quest. This ride is amazing but we ended up absolutely soaked so I recommend you to wear something appropriate. Outside this ride, they had drying machines for families. I think it cost £2.
Then we walked through the LEGO Friends area. This was cool as the girls watch this show and have lots of FRIENDS lego pieces. They had a scary ride on Mia’s Riding Adventure which was not for Sienna’s age. I am not very keen to too high rides so Nick was happy to go with Bella.
We ended our day at S.Q.I.D Surfer. You get a little bit wet here but it is okay. It is a cool water attraction. They had jet-ski pods but spectators can trigger water bombs that explode from the bottom. This was super fun too.
There were a few rides that we didn’t do but as you can see we tried to do as much as we could. We are definitely coming back because we absolutely loved it and we had the best time ever.
