The new Ninjago Land may be arriving for the 2017 season.

In the 2016 interim results, it was confirmed that the new Ninjago ride would be in place before the upcoming film of the same name. With the film out in September 2017 and the Haunted House ride not currently planned, it looks likely that the ride and land will launch next year.

The new ride sees the replacement of Land of the Vikings with a new 3D track tracked ride featuring an Ninjago themed story and shooting similar to Laser Raiders but likely to be using hand movements and retheming for the remaining rides.

Ups And Downs For Summer Pricing

Please Pay Here 3-14-09 19

New pricing has now been introduced for the summer season at LEGOLAND Windsor.

First up, day tickets have seen a larger than average increase with £5 added since the spring. Typically, the park adds £1.20 between spring and summer and £2.40 year on year, so this increase represents a big jump from 5% to a whopping 12%. However, initial posting of these prices suggested they are peak prices, valid from 16th July to 4th September. With this note later removed, it will be a case of wait and see if the prices were indeed peak.

Similar increases have been seen for the advance purchase discounted tickets also.

Also, two day tickets have returned after being missed off for the spring, with a smaller rise for adult but a similar one for the child rate to bring the ratio in to line with other pricing after a bigger difference last year between adult and child.

2015 2016
2016 +/-
Day Ticket Summer Spring Summer Y-O-Y
Adult £49.20 £50.40 £55.40 12.6%
Child/Senior £45.00 £46.20 £51.20 13.77%
Two Day Ticket
Summer Spring Summer Y-O-Y
Adult £70.80 £75.40 6.5%
Child/Senior £61.20 £69.50 13.7%

Open day ticket, now known as flexi ticket, has actually gone down, from £56.40 to £55.40 for adults and £52.20 to £51.40, 1.8% and 1.5% down respectively.

Group tickets have also gone up from £27.72 to £32.50, another big increase of 17.24%, with the price remaining unchanged for groups of 30+.

Two new tickets have been introduced also. Firstly, a family ticket, which offers entry, lunch plus refill, landyard, key chain and digipass, is available for £73.00 each with a minimum of 3 people and must be purchased 2+ days in advance, offering good value for money if you are interested in the packaged items.

Secondly, an all inclusive ticket, in conjunction with First Choice, offers entry, lunch and a refill for £55 each. The lunch is valid in all restaurants other than the hotel and Knights’ Table.

Parking, Q-Bot, annual passes and schools pricing remain unchanged
