While there are many "hands-on" activities at LEGOLAND, some attractions, such as Miniland are for viewing enjoyment only. It is the responsibility of each parent and guardian to supervise those children under their care while in the park. Adults are encouraged to join their children on most rides and attractions in the park. Children under 14 years of age should be accompanied by an adult (aged 16 years +) at all times.
Safety restrictions are posted at individual rides and attractions. Please take a moment to read them carefully before considering them for you or your child. For your safety, exceptions are not possible.

- Please do not leave children unattended in pushchairs and use pushchair safety belts. Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult whilst in the park.
Due to the nature of the park being positioned on a steep hill scooters, roller skates, children’s tricycles are not permitted into the park. These items can be left at Guest Services for later collection. For their own safety we request that children wearing Heely's do not activate the wheel part of the shoe and take due care and attention whilst in the park, as LEGOLAND cannot take any responsibility in the event of an accident or incident occurring.
Lockers are available on a first come first served basis and are located around the park. Lockers require a £1 coin to operate, which is non-refundable.
Providing a safe and secure environment is a top priority for LEGOLAND Windsor. Before entering the park please make sure you have removed all valuable items (mobile phones, satellite navigation systems etc) from your vehicle. Lockers are available and these are conveniently located close to the main entrance.
If your little one has gone off on their own adventure, please look for any member of LEGOLAND staff who will direct you to Guest Services either at The Beginning or in Heartlake City.
Emergency contact wristbands are available at Guest Services. If you have a mobile telephone, they are a quick and effective way of helping us reunite lost children and parents.
Please report any lost articles or hand in items to Guest Services at The Beginning or in Heartlake City.
Parents and guardians with more than one child can take turns in riding with their children. The parent swap allows the parent to ride with one child, whilst the other waits, and then swap over without having to queue twice. Please ask a member of the Attractions team at each ride for further details.
Please note this service is not available on all rides and attractions.
No dogs or other pets can be admitted into the park except Assistance Dogs.
LEGOLAND Windsor is once again working with Ecolab to provide a robust and comprehensive pest elimination service. As the park is bordered by natural woodland, due consideration has been given to the sensitive nature of the surrounding environment. Members of the Ecolab team are working closely with park staff and supporting them with expert advice on pest control. Pest Awareness Training acorss the Resort is conducted as part of a pro-active and consistent approach.
Around 130 Wasp Bane units have been deployed around the park. As part of Ecolab’s wasp programme, specialists will be pro-actively removing Queens and nests early in the season, and we have employed more members of staff than ever before the keep the Resort clean. We do ask our Guests to help us keep the Resort as clean as possible and dispose of litter and drinks properly in order to discourage wasps from nesting in the area.
Pushchairs (double and single) are available from the BIG Shop at The Beginning for a charge of £15/£10. Please be aware pushchairs are hired on a first come, first served basis and cannot be pre-booked.
If you wish to leave the park and return the same day, at no charge, please have your hand stamped at the entrance turnstiles. Failure to obtain a handstamp will result in you not being re-admitted.

LEGOLAND Windsor wishes to be at the forefront of reducing smoking in public places due to the fact we are designed for families with young children.

These are the only areas where smoking is allowed in the park.

The policy above also applies to electronic cigarettes.

Guests With Disabilities
Why have you changed the Ride Access Pass system and policy?
Over the last 3 years we have received valuable feedback from our guests regarding the Ride Access Pass system and how it works for them. As such, we have made beneficial changes based on this feedback. The new system will allow us to regulate the number of guests entering the queue line at any given time. This in turn will ensure we are making every effort to minimise the wait for all of our guests, offering everyone a great experience. We are always looking to improve the experience for all of our guests and this is a positive step in improving our Ride Access Pass system.
What if I don't have a smart phone?
If you do not own a smart phone or smart device we do have a device for rental, this will require a £150 refundable deposit and covers the cost of the device. Please note that we have only have a very small amount of devices for rental and they will be issued on a first come first served basis.
What if the Wifi coverage drops out?
The Ride Access Pass will work in synergy with Q-Bot mobile, which has proved to be very reliable on our Wifi connection. We have successfully offered this service to our guests a number of years.
Will all rides be included or just those with Q-Bot access?
All rides, including those not currently on Q-Bot, will be included on the Ride Access Pass system. If there is not a queue at the ride all guests are free to use the main queue line whilst also virtually queueing for another ride.
Will the wheelchair policy change?
The Wheelchair policy will not change, please see our Accessibility Policy for details on which rides are accessible and which queue line to join if you would like to experience a particular ride.
My son/daughter doesn't understand the concept of waiting. How am I expected to explain virtual queuing?
We suggest that you try planning your day before arriving. We have several shows and other activities to enjoy whilst you are virtually queueing.
What do you suggest we do whilst waiting for a ride?
Enjoy the Batcave activities, The DUPLO Theatre Puppet show, Miniland, Castaway camp, Brickville, Star Wars Miniland Model Display, Pirates of Skeleton Bay stunt show and Olivia’s house. You also have the choice to join the main queue line for any rides with little or no queue whilst also virtually queueing for one of the longer wait queue lines.
What happens if I arrive late for a time slot because of medical, toilet or behavioural needs?
We understand that things happen in the course of a day but don’t worry. As long as you arrive at or after your time you will be able to go on.
How many people can book the same ride?
4 people can book the ride at one time. The guest who is eligible for the Ride Access pass and 3 accompanying people. Please note that the guests with the red hand stamp will need to be accompanied on the ride by someone over 16 years of age or over 14 years of age and above the accompanying height for that ride.
Where are the people with Q-Bots going to fit in with this?
Guests using Q-Bot will also be in the same queues however our staff will ask if you have a ride access pass to get you through the queue line here. The Ride Access pass and Q-Bot will be now working on the same system in synergy so we are able to better control the number of guests coming through here to try to minimise wait time.
Will this drain my battery life?
Ride Access Pass will work on a web browser so just lock your phone whilst virtually queueing and this will minimise battery drainage. We will also have some battery chargers for rental in Guest Services in the beginning if this does occur. Our guests have been using Q-Bot mobile for some time now and as long as you follow our advice and don’t keep your phone open, battery life is substantial.
