So, I went to *the* Legoland this summer - previous time was back in the 1980s.
Couldn't find an existing thread for this, so I started one. I must say it is a fun, fun place still - expanded quite a bit, but the core areas have stayed true to the original experience. There were some fabulous castles in the Miniland, I'm sure giving many ideas to possible future MOCs. There was also the Knight's Kingdom themed area, where we ate at a castle restaurant, guarded by man-sized LEGO Castle minifigures.
There is also a LEGO themed hotel on the premises, where the rooms actually have boxes of LEGO for you to build with - and of course all the public areas in the hotel are full of LEGO playrooms and the like. Obviously the park hosts the largest LEGO store (or so they say) in the world, a lot of rarer castle stuff in there too - Medieval Market Village, the last Kingdoms exclusives and so on. For the kids some unique LEGO castley wearables too. Since Billund is an airport town, it isn't hard to get there either (although we drove, the newish Danish/Swedish bridges make it a hoot to come from Scandinavia).
I posted some pics here: http://questforbricks.wordpress.com/201 ... d-billund/

I'll try to post some on the hotel and the store later on.
Have many of you been to the Denmark Legoland?
