We had the opportunity to spend the day at Legoland Discovery Centre Manchester the other weekend, and it was a lot of fun. It was few days after the twins’ birthday. They turned 5 and we usually visit Legoland Manchester in their birthday week, we have done so for 4 years now. So off we went on this Saturday. We were a group of 9 with my sister and her family.
Fun Times in Legoland Discovery Centre Manchester
It was so much fun as always. The kids all had amazing time. Having their 3 cousins around added extra fun to the day, and together they explored Lego. There was a lot to see and I think we adults had a nice time too. It was good to get out of the house and watch the kids have a blast! I think Legoland Discovery Centre Manchester is a great family day out location, especially in the winter months when it is too cold to do much outdoors.
A Few Issues
Legoland was busy as usual on that day. We had to wait for some minutes before we got in but it wasn’t too long thankfully. The service was good as always. We didn’t have to wait too long to get on the rides which was good. We got on all 3 rides, and the kids had time to explore the soft play area as well as other activities. It was a good day out for sure.
One of the issues I had was the movie showing was in 2D instead of 4D. There was a message explaining the issue they were having with the screens, but we found it really disappointing that we couldn’t enjoy the movie in 4D. But we could see feel and see some of the effects, which was ok in the end.
Another thing I found was that parents just let their kids run wild in the soft play area and do whatever they want. I noticed many kids with their shoes on in the soft play area. There were also many older kids that were too old to be in there, but were in there anyways. And there were just some kids that were just being kids, but needed their parents to put them right, and the parents were too busy chatting or scrolling on their smartphones to notice. I don’t understand why many parents completely ignore their kids in soft play area but that is story for another post. Back to some of the lovely shots I got on my iPhone at Legoland.
Overall, we all had a lovely time, especially the kids. And I know we will be visiting Legoland again very soon. We would love to visit the Legoland in Windsor one of these days. I have heard a lot about the park and saw quiet a bit of it in The Mummy Diaries with Sam and Billie Faiers. I would love to explore it with the kiddies. That should happen in the summer hopefully.
