Legoland Billund

The plastic bricks, invented by Danish carpenter Ole Kirk Christiansen, have been one of the ultimate favourite toys for several decades now. Opened in 1968 right next to the original Lego factory in Billund, the first park themed to the little, colourful interlocking plastic bricks was born.

It already becomes clear at first sight that Legoland Billund has never been on the drawing board. Plenty of trees cast shadows, and the loosely structured park invites all visitors to explore. The third Legoland Park, which is situated in Bavaria, gives an idea as to what can be expected: each ride, each building and each and every detail in terms of theming has the unmistakable LEGO look that gives guests a strange feeling of familiarity.

A total of nine themed Lego Lands have come into being on an area of 14 hectares over the years: Duplo Land, Imagination Zone, Legoredo Town, Adventure Land, Miniland, Pirate Land, Knights’ Kingdom, Lego City, and we were super excited about experiencing the roller coaster "Polar X-Plorer”, which opened last year, placed in the new Polar Land area. This Zierer coaster features a freefall drop track section: in the course, it will come to a sudden stop and the train will drop five metres. Quite adventurous – especially without that information beforehand. If there wasn't the rather rudimentary design of this section and the track along the penguin enclosure, where the penguins are hard to find, "Polar X-Plorer” would be a perfect fun-filled, surprisingly exciting ride.

Every fan surely agrees that the heart of Legoland Billund is the big Miniland area which integrates perfectly into the landscape. To see what can be made out of small bricks when creativity is unleashed is satisfying and fun – all the more so as there seems to be an endless number of Lego material at disposal. The park is aware of the fact that strolling through this miniature world is inspiring. Therefore, it provides lots of kits, bricks, minifigures and any other possible LEGO parts. It certainly is difficult to escape the fascination, but exclusive merchandise is very rare to find, which might be less attractive to fans and ambitious collectors ...

Given that the focus clearly lies on families with children, thrill rides are also very rare to be found. However, this is not necessary at all, since the overall design of Legoland Billund guarantees a high feel-good factor that can compete to Disneyland. Coaster enthusiasts are well advised to travel further north to Djurs Sommerland (see next article), but Legoland Billund is an ideal place for family outings or a relaxing theme park visit.
