    Why not, Legoland is great!

    Buy some cornflakes and go to Alton Towers instead.

    Just tell your mummy that you don't want to go then.

    Just go and get it over with. Your kids will like it too, despite it being uncool. But most of all, your Mrs will like it and be happy, and what's not to like about a happy Mrs?

    I once had to go to seeing the fecking lions at Longleat. We arrived at the desk to be told it was going to be about £55 for the four of us. :shock: I explained "I only wanted to see a lion, I didn't want one in a bloody sandwich", it didn't go down too well :(


    The older I get, the better I was.

    Go to Go Ape instead. Its only 15 minutes away from Legoland.

    (I had 4 hours at Heathrow to kill, so I was looking up what to do at Windsor)

    You haven't been on here for a while, did you discover a world outside of this place :lol:

    I did, Aberdeen is cold, wet and grey, Saudi is a place I never want to return too and Gabon is a place that is rather unique. Alas none were locations that were great for cycling or rugby.

    We got in with one adult and one child free a couple of years ago and had priority access to everything but still came away feeling I'd been ripped off. How they can justify their prices is beyond me, the place looked really tired and there were maybe two activities suitable for someone aged over 5. The likes of Alton Towers, Thorpe Park or even many of the smaller, cheaper theme parks offer far better value for money.

    I saw the prices of these the other day... £32 and you are only allowed on once? :shock:

    Last time I did something like this was in France. They had 9 routes ranging from kids "yellow route" to "black route" for over 18's only.
    For 15euro's you could spend all day at the site and go on as many or as few routes as you wanted.

    Probably so expensive in the UK because of all the H&S carp that we insist on

    You do realise those adverts use your search history to advertise things you might be interested in? Therefore it appears that you have been searching for kids attractions. If I were you I'd be quickly saying that 'yes, I do want to go to Legoland and take my family' before questions get asked as to what other reason you could have for such a search! :shock:

    So not everyone is seeing dwarf porn adverts?

    Do you think that the person-that-must-not be-named uses the extension that must-not-be-named or is the generated ads that pop up within his interest all about things that can't be discussed here?
