LEGOLAND Windsor; Q-bot

The Q-bot is a device that allows you to virtual queue for your rides rather than actually stand in the real queue.  This is a great LEGOLAND Windsor Tip as it includes Q-bot Express & Ultimate that offers you fastrack entry onto the rides.  The standard Q-bot saves you standing in line but reflects the actual length of the queue so you’ve plenty of options to consider.  Find out more information below on  each of these options to help you save time and money.

Q-bots at LEGOLAND Windsor

Q-bot are in addition to your theme park entry and offers you a method to buy your way out of the queues.  As LEGOLAND Windsor is a busy attraction this offers you the chance to pack more into your day that particularly works during busy days at the park.  You can now either pick up a Q-bot a handheld device on a key chain or take advantage of Q-bot mobile version.  There are 3 types of Q-bot available to purchase;

i. A Q-Bot  Regular

A Q-Bot regular allows you to electronically reserve one ride at a time where the reserved ride time reflects the actual length of the queue.  This allows you to avoid standing in line for busy rides so you can fit more into your day at the park.

ii. Q-Bot Express

A Q-Bot Express reduces you queue times by half where your reserved ride no longer reflects the actual length of the queue but rather reduces your wait times by half.  The advantage with the Q-Bot Express is you’ll get more rides done in a day but you’ll pay more for the privilege.

iii. Q-Bot Ultimate

A Q-Bot Ultimate gives you immediate access to all the eligible rides at the park regardless of queue times.  This ensures you will enjoy all the rides at the park in one day but it comes at a greater cost.

How To Use a Q-Bot at LEGOLAND Windsor

Make your Q-bot purchase either online in advance or on the day at the Q-bot booths.  You can now also take advantage of a Q-bot mobile that allows you to avoid the queues at the Q-bot booths too!  Once you have made a purchase, simply select the ride of your choice & you’ll quickly be allocated a time slot to access the ride, (with the exception of Q-Bot Express).  Make your way to the Q-bot line at the allotted time and, when finished, begin choosing your next ride.

Q-bot; Tips & Tricks

1. Use your Q-bot Regular/Express for rides with long wait times & actually physically stand in line for those rides with shorter waiting times.

2. On busy days either book online or download the Q-bot mobile as they can sell out on busy days at the park.  If you are planning to collect a hand held device, worth noting that queues quickly build for the the Q-bot booth on busy days at the park.

4. There are 2 Q-bot booths; one is located within The Beginning & is staffed BEFORE the park opens for the day, the other booth  is located in Kingdom of the Pharaohs, (tends to only be staffed on peak days) .

5. Passholders can take advantage of a 10% discount on Q-bot hand held devices, (not available on Q-bot mobile).

6. If you are planning to use the Q-bot mobile, take a battery pack as it tends to pull the charge quite quickly.

7. Some rides and attractions are not included within your Q-Bot Regular or Q-Bot Express, (although they can be included within the Q-Bot Express).  Should you wish to bolt-on these rides, there is an additional charge to pay.

    My personel opinion regarding your Q-Bot machines is:
    1/ It discriminates between people on a budget or with larger family’s
    2/ one admission fee should give all equal opportunity to the rides
    3/ It creates an victorian upper and lower class situation
    Personally I am in a fortunate position to purchase the ultimate but would not do so as to avoid disrupting others enjoyment.
    Something maybe your group overlooked, but its all about the money and not experience I suppose!!

    • Hi Jerone, thanks for your feedback regarding Q-Bots. Topdogdays is independent of all visitor attractions & unfortunately has no influence over Legoland Windsor’s operations & use of fastrack methods. I do take on board that Q-Bots & fastracks are unpopular with many but plenty of customers do opt to make use of these services to reduce wait times on busy peak times even with the added costs it incurs:(
