Next we moved on to Western Denmark and started our 3 day stay with Legoland Billund! This is the original park and my second Legoland after the new one in Florida. This place (like most parks in the region) is in the middle of nowhere but still gets huge crowds! And I can see why...the park was really nice and had a lot of cool rides.

On to the photos! I think this only marks 1/3 of the trip :lmao:
01.JPG
Welcome to Legoland!
02.JPG
The Lego figures start outside the park entrance. Yes we are in Denmark!
03.JPG
Our day started off with ERT on Polar X-Plorer!
04.JPG
Thank goodness we don't have to wait in that.
05.JPG
The first train of riders takes off!
06.JPG
And here we go!
07.JPG
Love the mid ride drop scene!!!
08.JPG
First drop fun. This is going to be a kid's ride right?
09.JPG
Nope! This coaster had airtime and some fun G's!
10.JPG
Airtime curve through the rocks!
11.JPG
The ride has a peaceful ending with some Lego animals.
12.JPG
You can see most of the attraction from up here.
13.JPG
KT approved!
14.JPG
Ready guys?
15.JPG
Helix fun! It was actually forceful :)
16.JPG
The brake run is next to a penguin exhibit! Take that Antarctica
17.JPG
Next up, the park took us to Ghost to be first in line for this new attraction.
18.JPG
The queue is a huge walk thru area with some cool scenes!
19.JPG
The mirror maze was super long and confusing!!! best one I have done
20.JPG
The actual ride was pretty short, but a cute little ride/drop
21.JPG
Credit time
22.JPG
Typical Lego mouse. Be prepared for a squeeze larger riders!
23.JPG
In typical TPR trip fashion, we were handed express passes
24.JPG
Dragon time
25.JPG
Includes your typical awesome theming and show scenes
26.JPG
The ride is pretty well hidden, but fun for what it is.
27.JPG
How about a boat ride?
28.JPG
The loading dock.
29.JPG
Bigger than Disneyland's castle?
30.JPG

32.JPG
Just a shirtless guy taking a shower.
33.JPG
Time for lunch!
34.JPG

35.JPG
Another wonderful buffet in Scandi ;)
36.JPG
They do have an observation tower but we passed
37.JPG
The Legoland hotel is right on site, if you feel like selling your limbs for a stay
38.JPG
Driving school is such a neat idea.
39.JPG
But Sealife is included in admission!
40.JPG
They have legos and fish. Winning!
41.JPG
Luckily we did not get crabs.
42.JPG
Another park, another open fire.
43.JPG
The log flume looked rather wet...
44.JPG
Thoughts confirmed.
45.JPG
They had another unique water ride in the form of a rapids ride with vertical lift and drop. I opted to remain dry
46.JPG
Should I go for the 10 scoop ice cream???
47.JPG
Back over at Polar X-Plorer, still looking good.
48.JPG
It was time to create a robo coaster ride!
49.JPG
Insane flipping in nonsensical directions happens here
50.JPG
One last look at the loading area. There was 2, so 8 arms total. Line moved pretty quick!
51.JPG
We did use our pass for another ride on Polar X-Plorer. Awesome coaster and I hope to see more!!!
52.JPG
It was time for the TPR Fire Academy showdown!
53.JPG

60.JPG

61.JPG
Who can pump the hardest?
62.JPG
Apparently these guys
63.JPG
The rest of our visit was spent with a nice stroll around MiniLand. DONG
64.JPG
Not sure which countries these are...
65.JPG
...but they sure look nice.
66.JPG
Airplane nerds rejoice...
67.JPG
Yup, this is pretty much what Europe looks like.
68.JPG
Beautiful.
69.JPG
The working water lock elevator thingy actually worked and was super cool.
70.JPG
And I'll leave you with one last shot. Thanks for looking! Next up, Djurs Sommerland for some Intamin goodness!

Great photos again Jake. I loved Legoland. By far and this park just managed to take a giant dump over Windsor and make it look like crap!

I will say even though everyone loves it the Fire Academy almost gave me a heart attack! Polar X-Plorer was just all kinds of awesome and totally surprised me, I really loved that ride.

This is my best memory of that day though. "Wake up Jake!"

^Same! It was tempting to not spend a lot of money in the Lego shop.

Next up is Djurs Sommerland coming Monday evening! Lot of Intamin love.

Legoland Denmark looks awesome. I visited Legoland Florida this summer for the first time and honestly didn't really like the park all that much. I know it's a "kids" park but I really felt that Florida could use a few attractions like Polar Explorer or the haunted house ride. Denmark looks like it really has a great mix of "family" ride where as Florida to me, with the exception of the wild mouse, has more or less all "kids" rides. Great report though.

Great trip report!

^ That's how I felt about Legoland California as well. Knight's Tournament looked really cool, but other than that, most of the rides seemed geared for the younger crowd. Ultimately that is why I decided to visit SeaWorld instead.
