LEGO® City comes to life this May bank holiday weekend at the LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort in a new 4D movie Print

On 4 May, a brand new 4D movie launches at the LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort. LEGO® City 4D – Officer in Pursuit! screening exclusively at LEGOLAND® Parks and Discovery Centre’s, will have the whole family laughing out loud. In this 12 minute movie, join LEGO City Police Officers in a crazy 4D caper across town as they chase down the mischievous crook through the streets and skyscrapers of the metropolis. Families can become part of the action in this chaotic pursuit, brought to life through 3D glasses and 4D water, wind, fire and bubble effects.

Also new for 2019 is the Haunted House Monster Party ride. Little monsters are now invited to join the frightfully friendly Lord Vampyre for a monstrous party at his spooky haunted home. Young party guests are be greeted by LEGO brick gargoyles and talking statues, LEGO bunting, banners and balloons. Inside Lord Vampyre’s Haunted House, families take their seats on the ride at a banquet table in a magnificent hall, brimming with ghastly monster party food, cauldrons, potion bottles and goblets. Once sitting comfortably, Lord Vampyre will reveal his magical party trick – bringing the banquet hall swinging to life and turning the room upside down before his party goer’s very eyes.

The LEGO® MOVIE 2 Experience, gives guests the chance to explore an actual LEGO® set as seen in “The LEGO® MOVIE 2”. Returning heroes Emmet, Wyldstyle, and their LEGO co-stars can be spotted in their hometown of Apocalypseburg recreated in miniature LEGO scale.  The LEGO® MOVIE 2 Experience is created out of 62,254 LEGO bricks, featuring 628 types of LEGO elements, utilizing 31 different colours.  The new attraction offers guests an up-close look at Apocalypseburg and families will be amazed by the details that go into making this 3D animated blockbuster movie.

Families visiting over the bank holiday weekend can pick up a LEGOLAND Annual Pass in the sale until 7 May, for just £60 per person (usually £89 per person) and enjoy yearlong entry* to the theme park. Whilst families looking to enjoy weekday visits to the theme park, can save with the Off-Peak Saver Pass** at just £47 per person (usually £59 per person). Those who snap up a pass in the sale, can visit the new attractions as many times as they wish with yearlong access to the theme park.  

With so many awesome rides, live shows and attractions, families can enjoy the ultimate LEGO experience and extend their visit with a short break. Families can choose to stay in one of two LEGO themed hotels, located on right on the edge of the Resort – the LEGOLAND Hotel and the LEGOLAND Castle Hotel, or choose a nearby partner hotel.
