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.
Haunted House Warehouse Goes Vertical
Monday 3rd September 2018
The metal structure containing Haunted House Monster Party a madhouse ride, similar to Hex at Alton Towers has gone vertical. Opening in 2019 the framework for the ride has started to fly up!
The building is still in the early phase of construction but you can already see the large open section where the ride will be. Two large concrete blocks can be seen at ethier end of the building where the main beams for the ride will go. Stairs down one end of the building shows where access into the ride area will be. Stood in Heartlake City you can just make out the top of the building.
Legoland Haunted House Foundations Laid
Sunday 8th July 2018
Foundations for the Haunted House ride at Legoland are underway, concrete appears to already have been poured in some areas of the foundations for the ride. Metal rebar and wooden slots for more foundations have been set up down one end of the site. It seems the base the ride will sit on has been completed but the sides to keep soil and dirt out are now being worked on.
We suspect that at the end of August and beginning of September we should start to see some framework for the ride to start going up.
