Mixables half term trip to LegoLand
The Mixables went on a trip to Legoland on Tuesday 30th of May. Most of the young people going on the trip had never been so were eager to experience their very first theme park. The first thing that they visited was the Star Wars exhibit, a popular stop at Legoland which showcased a range of Star Wars characters, which included a giant Lego figure of Darth Vader fighting Luke Skywalker.
After that, the Mixables decided they were ready for some rides, the first one was the River Rapids. Some of the young people didn’t want to go on this ride but after a pep talk from the staff members accompanying them, they all came along and had a great time in the end. After the River Rapids, the whole group sat down in a play park to enjoy some lunch. The group was excited to get live the whole experience of Legoland, so a rollercoaster was next on the to-do list. A lot of the young people incidentally had a fear of heights but after being reassured that it wasn’t as scary as they thought onto the ride, they had the most wonderful time and the screams of joy and excitement filled the park.
Straight after the rollercoaster, the young people went on the pirate ship to give the young people who didn’t go on the rollercoaster the chance to still have fun. Though many of them were terrified before the ship even started moving, they enjoyed themselves immensely. Now no trip is complete without a visit to the gift shop, where the young people treated their bravery with some well-deserved sweets.
