Plans for a new haunted house attraction at Legoland Windsor Resort have moved one step closer, with The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Council recommending approval of the plans.

Despite some local concerns with regard to the traffic generated by the park, impact on the local area, and the future development plans of the park, the planning officer has recommended that the project be approved subject to specific conditions. These conditions include the resort ensuring that there is no significant impact on important trees in the area, the resort continuing to work with the local council to ease the congestion on roads surrounding the park at peak times, and samples of the materials to be used on the external surfaces of the development being submitted for approval to the local authority.

Situated in the northern area of the site and to the south east of Driving School and Boating School, the new attraction will feature a 10m drop tower, similar to the ride mechanism found in Nemesis: Sub Terra at Alton Towers Resort. Visitors will enter the new attraction through a themed queue line featuring a graveyard and spider’s web, before entering from the front entrance which will replicate a traditional haunted house and be based on the current Lego ‘Monster Fighters’ brand.

This latest proposal is considered to be an important element of the continued investment into the park which is required to maintain Legoland Windsor Resort’s position as a leading leisure and tourist attraction. Although no date has yet been confirmed, it is anticipated that this development will open for the 2015 season at the resort.
