Opened: 2004
Closed: 2009

The Jungle Coaster, LEGOLAND Windsor's 3rd rollercoaster, was opened to the public in 2004 and closed at the end of the 2009 season due to several reasons. It was situated in Adventure Land in-between Wave Surfer and Dino Safari.

Description

The Jungle Coaster was a MACK Wild Mouse Roller Coaster, themed around LEGO TECHNIC that opened in time for the 2004 season. It had a minimum height restriction of 1.1m, with guests under 1.3m having to be accompanied by an adult. It created Adventure Land, and opened up the area behind the now named Adventure Land Lake. For the first four years of it's life, the Jungle Coaster was great - a really fun ride, consisting of a large drop, a number of tight hairpin bends at quite a height, and sudden stops.

Closure

It started off with LEGOLAND's neighbours complaining about the noise generated by the ride and the screams of the riders, so they complained about it to the park quite a few times. LEGOLAND then had to put a 'hood' onto the cars to drown out the noise made by the riders. It worked but increased the weight of the cars considerably meaning that they could now only load a maximum of two adults; adults are classed as over 1.4m so this greatly reduced capacity, and increased loading time which increased queues. During weekends queues for The Jungle Coaster could reach up to 2 hours which was not good for the park at all.

So they closed the ride in LEGOLAND Windsor, and in it's place the LEGOLAND Windsor Hotel which opened in March 2012.

The Jungle Coaster has been relocated to LEGOLAND Florida which is due to open in October 2011.
