If people still dont understand why I spell Merlin with a pound sign replacing the e, let the below image answer that question for you.

You will see less pants being pulled down if you went to the Amsterdam Red Light District. Gordon Ramsay best be doing the pizza for that price.

This is absolutely stupid- I thought Merlin actually were pretty good with providing varied and actually not too expensive food. This makes Disney look cheap, for Pizza that is not even that high of quality. Not too long ago we could get unlimited for cheaper.. I'd rather order Pizza to get delivered to the car park for cheaper lol.

 

Honestly I will bloody pack sandwiches if I have to next time I visit a Merlin park.

Why are we blaming Merlin? Are we seeing the same pricepoint at Alton, Thorpe, Chessington? - Nope.

 

 

Its Lego, and its always been the case.

Even the value nowadays at the pizza pasta places is bad- but here at Legoland the price point is extortionate. This is more expensive than Disney and Universal, which are overpriced in itself..

 

I'm blaming Merlin because it is a bloody Merlin park. Who runs it? Merlin. Lego is just a brand that happens

to bring in the people. There is being smart and charging a bit more, and then there is daylight robbery like this price point we see here today. Would you pay for this? Would you buy this meal and feel like you got a inch of value for money?

And who owns Merlin? - Lego, they will, always have a premium price on their products plus the extra cut they want to take on top of the normal theme park revenue. 

With prices so high however that may prevent people from buying Lego in the first place, the reason why the park is even there in the first place.

Lego has gone back to buffet pizza pasta/ 12.99 online or 15.99 walk in.

 

Overall quite happy with lego mythica, although I wish they screened the warehouse roof, it spoils the experience a little

The Lego Mythica area opened last month. 

 

I went to Legoland Friday evening for an Annual Passholder event (was very quiet, but largely because of the downpour of rain all day).

Flight of the Sky Lion was my first flying theatre and it was pretty decent. A very fast paced experience for the film. At times it would have been nice to just take things in a bit more a 'fly' around (which I hear other such rides do a bit more?). I sometimes struggle with a bit of a motion sickness of some motion simulators, but this was fine, though I felt a bit queazy about 3/4 of the way through.

My biggest pet peeve is the fact you can see the edge of the screen at the top, and the roof as a result. It's particularly jarring given the screen extends to the floor, so looking down to fine, but looking towards to top is a bit awkward. Not sure if this is a common problem with flying theatres though..? The queue line, as already pointed out, is pretty dreadful. I hate to think what it's like on a hot day..

The Mythica land is solid as well. Well presented and nice theming, plus bringing attention to a previously quieter part of the park. Definitely think it's much better than the originally planned Lego Movie World would have been too.

All in all, an impressive addition to the park. Would recommend giving a shot.

I managed to ride Flight Of The Skylion yesterday.


It’s certainly a truly unique attraction to the park and the U.K, a bit like a cross between a simulator and a 4D movie but I guess that’s what a flying theatre is.

The pre-show was simple but funny enough, mostly explaining the process. The actual ride however was surprisingly impressive and the setting works out remarkably well. The ceiling was the only potential setback, but I personally consider this one of the best additions at the park to date.

 

One could say it’s Lego’s take on Flight Of Passage, but I personally think it works. Volatarium is probably still my favourite type of these for now though.

 

Rest of the area looks surprisingly great . The new drop towers were fun and the “rethemed” Hydras Challenge (formerly Squid Surfer) looks much better! Only complaint was the service and food quality at the Hungry Troll could’ve been better.

The Flight Of The Sky Lion really impressed me - I booked Legoland not realising I’d booked the day the new area opened so it was crazy busy - visited another time so have had 2 goes on it which was fab.

Hydras Challenge is a much needed improvement to squid surfer which was looking a tad grim and dirty before.  
 

@Matt Creek service was dire in that chippy when I went - massive queue to get in, nowhere to sit - oh and they expect you to eat fish with your fingers.  The chips are nice though
