New Total Sensory Space
First of its kind at LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort
Guests can now explore the all-new Total Sensory Space in Heartlake City at the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort. The calming space has been specifically designed and put in place for those with additional sensory needs, and is now open at the Resort as a permanent feature for guests to enjoy.
This is the first dedicated sensory facility of its kind in a theme park and is an open space full of interactive sensory experiences, with vibrating bean bags, soft seating, interactive projections, bubble tubes, infinity tunnels, tactile panels, and soft lighting, all designed to create a calm space to relax in for those who need it.
The UV room allows guests to discover brighter colours, fibre optics, and UV mats, whilst the main space includes musical sound pads, activity panels to manipulate, and an interactive carpet, all part of the overall sensory experience on offer.
The space was designed and created by Total Sensory, specialists in providing sensory space projects across a range of sectors. Guests can also take advantage of the Resort’s Accessibility Guide which details all the services on offer for guests with additional needs, including the Ride Access Pass, a virtual queuing system, and the free carer’s tickets. The guide can be accessed online to help guests to plan their visit in advance, or a copy can be picked up at Guest Services.
A spokesperson for the National Autistic Society, commented: “Many autistic children love trips to theme parks where they can have fun and socialise. But unfamiliar places, especially popular attractions, can increase their anxiety levels and overload their senses. This is why we were delighted to hear about LEGOLAND Windsor Resort’s new sensory facilities. Supportive spaces like these play an essential role in opening up the world for autistic children and their families.”
