Park News - Nothing to report at this time

 

2018 - Miniland Expansions and LEGO Reef - (12/11/17) According to a report at ThemeParks-UK, Legoland Windsor will feature three small additions in 2018: MINILAND USA, Miniland: Explore the World and LEGO Reef.
    The new Miniland additions will be similar with one area focused on landmarks from the USA while the second will feature an assortment of all new Lego-made landmarks from countries from around the globe.
    LEGO Reef is described as a "digital aquarium" where you can build undersea kingdoms and environments via a touch-screen.

 

icon_STOP2019 and Beyond - Future Expansion Plans - (5/15/18) Legoland Windsor has been given permission to go ahead with a planned 95 million expansion over the next decade that would add at least three major new attractions to the theme park as well as a resort expansion. The rides in question mentioned a new 13 meter tall indoor ride (likely the and two new outdoot "fairground style" rides. Previously the park had applied to build Ghost: The Haunted House, an indoor walk-through haunt that ends with a family friendly indoor drop / bounce tower ride, but I had heard elsewhere that was no longer the plan.
    According to a post earlier this year at ThemeParks-UK, the "Haunted House" ride concept had changed from the drop tower one to a new Vekoma MadHouse style that would be called The Haunted House - Monster Party, which is said to be planned for 2019.
    (6/28/17) Legoland Windsor has submitted a long term development plan for the park that is said to include at least four new rides, a "holiday village", along with improvements to the park entrance and parking areas. New attraction concepts include a whole new themed land for 2019, and indoor ride of some kind of the site previously approved for the Ghost: The Haunted House project that was put on hold and more. More details can be found over at ThemeParks-UK.
    (12/1/15) The long delayed plans to build a “GHOST” haunted house attraction at Legoland Windsor have now been approved after a lengthy appeal process by the park. The original proposal intended to build this in 2015 as a copy of the Ghost attraction that opened at the Billund park in 2014, which has a pair of small drop towers built inside what looks like a haunted house exterior, and a lengthy but themed walk-through haunted house queue experience on the way to the ride portion of the attraction.
   You can find some layout artwork showing off how the new attraction will look in the Windsor park as well as the approximate location over at a report by Themeparks-UK. Look for this to open in 2017 unless plans change again.
    (6/16/15) LEGOLAND Windsor is still attempting to alter their plans for the GHOST haunted house / drop ride project that was denied building permission in 2014. According to ThemeParksUK, the revised proposal, if approved, would see it built for the 2017 season. Other future plans in the works include an expansion of Duplo Valley and an expansion to the LEGOLAND Resort Hotel that would replace the existing Dino Safari ride. If approved, the hotel expansion would also be complete in 2017. The park has also bought part of the St. Leonards Farm next to the park to allow for future expansion projects like a possible EcoLodge project.
