Having been spotted in the LEGOLAND Billund store last week, 40346 LEGOLAND will be available in the Windsor park from today, according to its Twitter feed, and it's likely that you'll find it in the shops at the Manchester and Birmingham discovery centres, too.

The 1336-piece set was designed by Mel Caddick and includes 11 minifigures. It retails for 999DKK in Denmark and £79.99 in the UK. The US price has not yet been confirmed but is likely to be $99.

I had it in my hands yesterday in Denmark but I just couldn't bite: It's very expensive in my view and I've gone off sets that consist of a multitude of small disconnected sections that do not look good on display. Besides, there was no room in my suitcase...

Update: It seems that the price has been inflated somewhat in Denmark following the set's initial popularity. Originally it was 799DKK, as evidenced by a photo taken of the empty shelf shortly after it was released. What a swindle...

Just got the last one in Manchester. It cost slightly less than £129.99. I paid £80.

I'd commit a crime to get my hands on that set. Nothing major, maybe something like counterfeiting, or public nudity. One of those ones. But the point stands.

^^ OK -- thank you. Glad I didn't buy in Denmark then!

@Mr.Lucas
Was that an offer of some sort or the rrp?

^ I suspect now that the £130 I quoted was just speculation based on the DKK price. £80 is far more reasonable.

^^ I think that is the regular price.
They also had all new city sets including #40344, #40345 for £11 and #30365.

Guys, is it just me or what's the big deal with this set? Is it that appealing?

Will it be available at Legoland California, preferably by this September? $99.99 seems mighty expensive for this set, maybe I’ll just go for the car driving class set. Also, about how big was the box?

Legoland Windsor announced it that was going on sale but the instagram post said it was going to be £129.99. Hopefully that ws an error as £79.99 would be better, may just have wait and see when we go in the summer.

799 DKK, not 999.

Good call. As much as we like amusement park-themed Lego sets, fractured little mini-builds are irritating choice of a design brief for a special set of this cost.

^^ It must have gone up then as it's 999DKK at all the outlets we saw it in now.

I would of liked to pick up this set as this summer is the 20th anniversary of me working a summer at LLW and the Dragon coaster was one of the rides I operated. Unfortunately at £80 it’s not to be.
If and when the instructions become available I may MOC the coaster but using red track pieces to be more faithful to to real thing.

I purchased from Legoland California this week. $89 USD. They had lots on the shelves

Was the set’s entrance designed by a 2 year old? Either that or it was put together by someone wearing oven gloves...

Just been to Legoland Windsor. Had every intention to buy the set - but was £129.99! Simply not worth anywhere near that!

I bought it last Tuesday in the shop in Legoland Germany for €99. This was the first day it was in the shop, the server said.

I too have just taken a detour from a Weekend away to stop in at Legoland Windsor and was very disappointed to find it at £129.99. I was expecting none to be left at £79.99 so mixed emotions on finding loads of them. I did initially think I wouldn't bother (was thinking about buying 2 at £80) but I bought one anyway so I have one.... I live 4 hours away. I think its actually ok value if you think about the pieces and Figures you get, its exclusive and < 10p pp. Its also quite good if you Compare it with the new Friends set which also has a roller coaster, less figures, less pieces and is only £10 cheaper. Having said that as someone else has said I saw Lego increased in Price. 4 Brickheadz were all £11.99 so we may be heading for a general price rise from Lego.......and its knock on effect of Toy shops / Amazon etc for 2019 Lego.

It wouldn't be the first time that there was a difference in price between an item available in Legoland, Discovery Centres and brand stores and I'm sure it won't be the last. I've included brand stores in my comment for completeness but understand that the plan is not to sell this set there.

It will be interesting to hear how much it is in the Discovery Centres when they restock.

Not sure what's going on with the price of this! Merlin is clearly milking it for all they can get...

I think this set is a real shame - one of the few times I’ve been genuinely disappointed. It could have been a really clever, beautiful set if it was constructed as a cohesive piece, perhaps on a baseplate. But seeing the model on display it appears even worse than on the box - just a massive collection of disparate minibuilds.

I just picked up this set at Legoland in California. The clerk told me they were $89 last week but they raised the price to $119 this week. They did let me use my LEGO VIP card for 5% off the total price.

Saw the set in Florida today for $89.99. $80 after my pass holder discount.
