UGLW: Unofficial Guide to Legoland Windsor
Everything you need to know - and more - about your visit to Lego Land, one of the UK's top tourist attractions
UNOFFICIAL GUIDE TO LEGOLAND WINDSOR
A very popular ride, where 3-5 year olds can get their own Legoland driving licence. A small oval course awaits the children once they have had a brief "training" session. The queues at this attraction can be long.
Child and carer can enter the training area, where a photo is taken and the children are told to buckle their seatbelts and told about the single pedal they need to press to go forwards. And they are shown how to steer left and right. Then it's on to the course itself. Again parents can go in at this stage to make sure they are safely strapped in to their car.
Parents are then removed and the kids drive round the track, some with more success than others. It helps if your children have a basic understanding of steering - perhaps if they have been on similar manual pedal cars.
At the end the children are taken to wooden decked area and given their Legoland driving licence. The next group of drivers can then get in the cars. This separate area was introduced in 2011 in a bid to reduce the queue waiting time. (Thank you Martin for the reminder).
L-Drivers goes down very well with younger children. Once they reach 6, children graduate on to Driving School.
Location: LEGO City.
