The weather was very hot and sunny the weekend we visited.

The good weather (and the school holidays) meant the park was very very busy.

The queues for most of the big rides where over an hour, so we invested ten pounds each in a Q-bot. Q-bot is a virtual queuing system which worked very well. we could book a ride, take our time getting there and then head straight to the (almost) front of the queue.

The first ride we went on was the Vikings’ River Splash, here are some nice people attempting to soak us.

Those people and the rest of the ride was successful in soaking me. Also in this picture you can see my Q-bot.

The Waterworks along with the Rat Trap remains one of Conor’s favourite attractions.

MiniLand, where the world has been recreated in Lego. You kind of take Miniland for granted after you first visit, but you shouldn’t because there are lots of little details hidden around it. Can you spot the one in this picture?

Conor and I had to have another go and Build and Test to see if we could emulate our earlier successes

I couldn’t recreate ‘The Bus” but Conor built his model thinking bigger is better.

Here it is, in all it’s glory. It wasn’t very fast, in fact his earlier versions didn’t even move.

Conor also had a go at the Build and Test Technics, making this spinning people thingy.

A giant Lego figure made out of Lego. How much does this rock? (Answer is; Lots)

Well this is the end of our trip, and the end of our annual pass. Legoland will have to do without us for a few years.
