Unfortunately we weren't the only ones with the same plans. Later on in the day we talked to some staff who said they had expected 13,000 visitors, but they ended up getting 18,000! I guess the rain earlier in the week had made them all change their plans and come on the Friday!
As always, the mini land was the most entertaining. For big and small!
Crowds aside, we still had fun, even though the queues obviously were rather long. But we managed to get on quite a few rides, and most importantly we managed to get a slot for the thing that was Linnea's must-do - taking drivers licenses. Anna, Lucas and Linnea got booked in to do that in the afternoon.
We also managed to see the worlds largest Lego model, currently on display here in Billund. They've built the Lego X-Wing Starfighter in full scale, from more than 5.3 million Lego bricks.
It is 3 m tall, has a wingspan of 13 m and weighs more than 20 tonnes! It's 42 times the size of the commercial Lego set. It took 32 "Master Builders" (yes, apparently that's a real job!) over 17,000 hours (about four months) to construct it.
The only thing with so many people in a park like this, is that everybody did the same trick when it came to the souvenirs... "No kids, we wont buy anything now, we'll do it when we exit the park"... *Duh* - shopping with about 18,000 other Lego fans, was not fun... But, we were still smiling at the end of the day!
It was great to be back at Legoland, I LOVE Legoland! It's the perfect place for kids of ALL ages - we had a super day!
