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
Q-Bot is Legoland's virtual queuing system.
You can purchase an electronic Q-Bot from the kiosk near the entrance to the park. You are given a pager-type device (1 per party). This enables you to select a ride so you can join a virtual queue. You still queue the same amount of time as you would normally (with Q-Bot Regular, at least), the Q-Bot device simply allows you to do other things whilst queuing. You may only queue for one ride at a time with the Q-Bot.
Not all attractions are linked to the Q-Bot system - but all the main rides are. You can see which ones here on Unofficial Guide to Legoland Windsor - each ride shows whether it is Q-Bot enabled at the bottom of its own page, see the rides and attractions page.
There are 3 types of Q-Bot: Regular, Express and Ultimate which give different amounts of waiting time:
|Legoland Windsor Q-Bot Prices - per person|
|Q-Bot||Q-Bot Regular||Q-Bot Express||Q-Bot Ultimate|
|Price||£ 20||£ 35||£ 75|
|Waiting time||Normal||50% less||95% less|
In addition to the above a £ 50 deposit is required for the Q-Bot device itself.
Q-Bot Express gives you quicker access to rides.
Clearly, if money is no object Q-Bot is hard to resist if you are at the park on a busy day. We think it's a very expensive perk though! If you can, it's better to go on a quieter off-peak day.
You can purchase Q-Bot at The Beginning or in Adventure Land near the Climbing Wall.
Q-Bot Mobile is exactly the same service as described above, except on your smartphone (Apple or Android). It saves collecting and giving back the pager device. It is easy to register and pay for the service online and comes in the same 3 levels. No app to download or run, it all works on a browser. Check out Q-Bot Mobile here (opens new window).
A bit of history for you, not essential to know!
Until 2010 Legoland Windsor operated a Priority Pass which was essentially a queue jumping aid. On top of your entrance ticket, you could purchase a Priority Pass. The Priority Pass was valid for one person for one day. It was a wrist band which was worn throughout the day. Only 30 were allocated per day.
The Priority Pass allowed holders to enter a ride through the exit lane and by-pass normal queuing. You could not continuously re-use your access and you had to wait at least 1 hour before riding each attraction again.

Legoland is open for the 2017 season but watch out for some closed days in the early part of the season. See opening times page for details.
We love a bit of praise!
