An award so ill-deserved that it discredits itself and awards in general.
How much did Merlin bribe to get that one
God it’s actually laughable. What on earth are they leading in? Guest dissatisfaction?
The picture on the top of that article looks suspiciously like Florida's Dragon
I believe this is what is now called "fake news".
That is absolutely insane, maybe Legoland ought to use their money on the park instead of bribing people for awards!
It's not quite as funny as when Merlin said their hotels are the best in the world, but it's close.
The only theme park the voters have visited is Legoland Windsor tbf.
Fake. The park is having a ghastly year.

I'm back from a day at Legoland today and all that I can say, is that we had a great day. Our first visit in a good few years.
Love the way that we got let into the park at 9.30 and held in mini land with onstage entertainment counting down to the opening of the ride areas at 10am (Please take note Alton, Thorpe and Chessie)
I first tried out the Haunted House Monster Party
Not as good as Hex or Dayton's Haunting)
I also tried out the Ninjago ride for the first time, very cool ride. Your arms ache after a while, like most shooting games, best to sit back and enjoy the ride, you miss so much when trying to shoot the targets.
The Viking river splash rapid ride was more all spin and no splash. Not like it used to be
With the exception of the Pirate Falls (more like Pirate Fails) which was closed all day (apparently broken and in need of a new part ) all the other rides did open despite some of the main rides (Atlantis submarine voyage, Story Book Ride, Dragon coaster) which open later.
The queues were mostly walk on or if there was a queue, I waited no more than 10 minutes despite the advertising time was displaying a lot longer waiting time. Put through was good too.
I really can't complain, it was overall a good day and closing times was at 5pm so got on a good few rides as well as viewing the Lego models.
Let's see how that stacks up with reality...
Legoland - 3.5 stars
Excellent = 25%
Very good = 27%
Average = 20%
Poor = 13%
Terrible = 15%
PortAventura - 4 stars
Excellent = 51%
Very good = 28%
Average = 11%
Poor = 4%
Terrible = 6%
Efteling - 4.5 stars
Excellent = 68%
Very good = 24%
Average = 5%
Poor = 2%
Terrible = 1%
Europa-Park - 5 stars
Excellent = 82%
Very good = 14%
Average = 2%
Poor = 1%
Terrible = 1%
So yeah, it's obvious that whoever created that report lacks any credibility. I can't see anybody in the industry actually taking that seriously, although it will allow Merlin to keep their heads in their alternative reality and to create nice soundbites for their press releases.
Just...How the SMEG can LegoBland be voted Europe's best theme park resort? I'll admit that my visit last month wasn't too bad (especially compared to the diabolicalness that was Thorpe the day before), but best in Europe? Seriously, don't make me laugh!
That 'award' is hilarious! Next we'll be seeing people telling us that Mt. Olympus is actually a really nice park...!
But it was a wet day in term time.
Log flume wasn’t open when I went in March.
They better get their s*** together before Brick or Treat as it’s our first time in the hotel at half term. And some decent sausages for breakfast would be good.
With the exception of a few minutes worth of light rain in the morning, in terms of weather, yesterday was a nice dry day.
As for term time, I never visit a park (or any other attraction) during weekends (except for events like scarefest and fireworks) but will still go out during school holidays, but will choose our dates wisely avoiding certain places
Something to do with a drive band keeps snapping last year and again this year
Hah, I don’t believe this is remotely accurate

The problem is there target audience is school children who don’t have the privilege of visiting on a school day , this park should be able to cope on weekends and school holidays but in our experience they can’t!!
