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
Mia's Riding Adventure
This is a "disco" ride which opened in summer 2015. It is a spinning disc ride where you are held in your seat, facing outwards in a circle and you are spun round whilst the disc itself slides backwards and forwards on a curved track. It was built in place of the closed Digger Challenge experience.
The theming on this ride is rather infantile. Each rider straddles a plastic pony, coloured and styled to appeal to the younger members of the family. This gives the impression of a gentle, quiet and perhaps slow ride. In reality, it is anything but!
Once you have got through the queue you are placed in a holding area up some stairs (there is a lift available). Bags go in a cage. Choose your pony (don't leave any gaps, each ride is full). Climb on it and wait for the back support to lift up and hold you in - it's quite firm (it needs to be).
Here's some video of the ride in full swing:

The ride starts slowly, spinning you round slowly, but then gets quicker and it starts riding up and down the curved track. After a while it continues to travel along the track but starts spinning in the opposite direction. It goes fast - and the track is high at either end. It gives you a strong sensation of flying in the air and you will find lots of riders screaming out - hopefully with joy and not terror!
This is arguably Legoland's most scary ride because of the speed and height and the feeling of flying through the air. It's well worth going on if you're brave enough!
Minimum height 1.2m.
