Legoland, I hope the kids have good memories it will be a while before we return

Advantages: A full day out for the family
I have taken the family to legoland about four time in the last five years, the most recent at the end of the summer holidays this year.
My children are 12 and nearly 10 so they can go on most rides independently (if they beat their father that is)
Legoland has enough to keep you going all day infact probably enough for two days which means you need to plan which areas you want to go to first and which you don't mind skipping if you have too.
We luckily had tesco vouchers which got one child in free, but we still had to pay for two adults and one child which cost us £94 is it just me that thinks that is a heck of a lot of money for one day out.
We had a fun day and stopped for lunch within lego another £28 and lunch was (what's the word) basic, pizza, chips, drinks. The kids then asked for an ice-cream another £5
The rides were okay we had a ridiculous wait for the laser riders of 95 minutes even though we were advised by the member of staff on the door that the ride was fairly empty, a clever queing system meant we didn't know about the wait until it was too late to back out. we started to discuss the virtues of q-bot with others in the que but we were told it cost £15 for q-bot (I must look that up as that seems an awful lot of money for something so simple)
we were all dissapointed with the new Viking's river splash it didn't seem finished, I didnt see any viking's made out of lego and the splash didn't happen, we were all expecting a drop like similiar rides at other parks.
All in all the day was great but its far out weighed by the high cost to get in. What happened to having days out in the summer holidays, the average family can't afford more than one, and both my husband and I work, and we still gulp at the cost.
I am sure Legoland are shooting themselves in the foot as parents will not return so often due to the high entry cost and many will avoid the gift shop on the way out as we did. I just couldn't justify more money for one day out, it's a shame as I do believe all children deserve a souveneir from their day out.
Summary: What a shame the cost out weighs the fun
