Ha! I'm going to LEGOland to see the Star Wars Miniland on Thursday! I'd love to enter but no point! Oh well, still might be able to snag a Modular while i'm there! Fire Brigade anyone?

I don't need to enter as I'm a pass holder. The mini land there though is superb.

@Duq et.al, the Ts&Cs were set by LEGOLAND, I don't know why they want to restrict it to UK residents only, to be honest.

I was in London for a short visit a couple of months back and I regret terribly not making an effort to vist Legoland Windsor then...guess I'll have to make do with the soon-to-be-opened Legoland Malaysia :P

UK only - not impressed at all - Thankfully LEGOLAND are not owned by LEGO anymore so LEGO are not to blame.

Please pass on dissapointment to Legoland for offering such restrictive competition entry.

I really think in this internationally connected modern day and age (as are the fans of lego and of this website)
and with so few countries in the world actually having a legoland (or even a legostore), a less restrictive competition could have been organised.

Like perhaps some other prize for non-UK residents, and the park tickets for UK residents... ?

@rockbrick I guess if competitions like this were to be made available worldwide they'd have to consider including flight tickets and accommodations as part of the winning prize as well, not everyone would have the financial means to fly halfway across the world to go to a Legoland. I think part of the reasons to restrict it to local residents are logistics, and just simply less hassle involved.

@rockbrick competitions are done on the terms of the company giving the prize - usually for marketing reasons. Legoland windsor wants to direct its marketing to the UK - that's understandable. I'ld equally understand if Legoland California limited a competition to the US.

I would ask Huw to thank Legoland Windsor for giving the tickets (8 sets is a really good prize) rather than complain about the restrictions they choose to place on a competition they've given the prize for. Theres one likely outcome of the latter - no more prizes.

Its also entirely sensible - if it was opened up there's a massive likelihood that the winner would never use the tickets because they live half way around the world but entered just because/with no real expectation of winning.

On a side note, I really hope I win a set - took the children last summer for the first time and had an absolute blast in the park for two days and staying at the Runnymede on Thames hotel (which was beautiful, the service was great and the duplex rooms a massive bonus!) but its just too far to make it worth buying an annual pass - if we lived closer I definitely would.

I agree we can't look a gift horse in the mouth.... and I understand that Legoland UK has to be uk focussed, (though I'm sure quite a lot of visitors are internetional) but this sort of competition is something that one would expect to be on a UK only publication like a sunday newspaper etc...

I am an ex-UK resident who often goes back to uk various times a year - so would definately use a prize like this
if I was half way across the world then selling online could be an option and use the money to buy some sets!

I agree with cheshirecart - it seems obvious that the prize should go to UK residents seeing as its in the UK. If u live in America and the prize was for a legoland in america, wouldn't you be pretty annoyed if someone from the UK won and people who actually live in America couldn't go?

^^ Except it also explicitly states that you can not sell the tickets.

I do understand the frustration - for example I find competitions run by EA that are limited to the US really frustrating especially when there's no reason for it being. Things like digital downloads of computer games etc. where there is no geographical reason for limiting it - a code or email can be sent to the UK, or AUS as easily as internally within the US.

But the fact is that there is a geographical location for this prize - the UK, its not even just a matter of the cost of shipping a lego set or something, the theme park is in the UK. It therefore makes complete sense to limit entries to a reasonably similar geographical location.

^How in the world are they going to know if you sell the tickets or not?

Yay, another competition. :)

^ Indeed and its a great prize - 8 family tickets, awesome.

^^ If they wanted to it would be easy to check that the address they post the tickets to is in the UK (first check) and then require that the person brings a form of identification with them as well (second check) In fact, if they said you had to pick up the tickets at customer services then a form of ID would be necessary anyway. Of course you could sell them before giving Legoland your address.

^ Did you really need to question what brits have against americans based on some legoland tickets that you guys can't have when in reality its merlin entertainment just can't be bothered to fork out for flights and hotels for overseas visitors who likely wouldn't bother making the journey anyway. I understand our US friends frustration but at the same time this has nothing to do with brickset or the UK and just for the record all other countries can't enter either so it's hardly an anti US stance.
