Closed Season Look at Legoland Haunted House
Wednesday 12th December 2018
Work on the Haunted House is looking great from the outside. With the park open for its Christmas event it gives us a great view of some of the work that's been happening since the park shut for the main theme park season. All of the building has been cladded, with some detail being painted onto the side of the building in the form of spider webs and a lego Vampire. Some of the more finer details like fake brickwork was being added to the building throughout the day.
The entrance of the ride appears to be progressing nicely, the large entrance tower looking similar to the Alton Towers entrance feature will host a banner with the ride name according to the visuals. No date has been given for the ride opening but we would expect it opening for the May bank holiday. If not before then.
Ride logo launched and new promo image
Thursday 1st November 2018
The logo and a new design for the attraction has been released by Merlin in a campaign advertising a sale on Merlin Annual Passes. It doesn't give a lot away about the attraction however we’re a big fan of the logo for the ride.
Drum Complete for Legoland Madhouse
Sunday 14th October 2018
The drum for the Haunted House ride at Legoland Windsor appears to be complete. The theming for the drum doesn’t look to have been installed yet but the building can now be made water tight ready for the cold winter months ahead. We look forward to seeing this project complete when we next visit the park in March time.
Legoland Windsor Mad House Drum Installed
Friday 5th October 2018
The new ride, built by Vekoma from Holland is a Mad House ride similar to Hex and we were excited to see that great progress has been made. Most notable is that the attraction has a selection of its benches in place, with more being craned into place this afternoon as we were on our way out of the park.
It's certainly exciting progress on getting this attraction finished ahead of the 2019 season at Legoland. We’re really looking forward to seeing how the ride looks when finished next year. This is sadly likely to be our last update on this new ride until we see it opening next year due to the fun and frightening halloween season being upon us.
Please enjoy a selection of photos from today below of ride parts being installed, craned into place and of how progress is going.
Legoland Madhouse Ride Delivered
Sunday 16th September 2018
Today we can reveal that the madhouse ride has started to be delivered to Legoland Windsor. Stored in a staff carpark, ride components are being stored ready for installation over the next few weeks. Parts for the ride have been labeled up as “Seat + Floor 4 + lapbars 1 piece”
Over the past two weeks construction work on the warehouse for the madhouse has been progressing nicely. With two mount points added at both ends of the building, it was only a matter of time until the components for the ride was delivered to the park. All of the ride building structure has been installed and the outside is now being prepared to be cladded and made watertight ready for winter. Then work can begin on theming the inside and the outside of the ride.
One of the main parts for the ride has already been delivered to the haunted house site. A huge ballast beam sits at the bottom of the seats and acts as a counterweight to stop the car from rotating with the room. We expect that by the end of September the drum of the ride will be installed and the front half of the building will start to be cladded, keeping the ride out of sight.
