Greater London South East Scouts expedition to Legoland Germany

42 Cubs & Scouts with 32 adults had a fun filled weekend on 23rd-26th August

Despite having to get up really early (or stay up really late), the expedition proved to be a great success.  Ali and Fraser from 3rd Orpington pick up the story...

"I felt really tired and really nervous when I got on the coach in the middle of the night to leave for Germany, but I knew I was going on a really big adventure.  By the time we got to the ferry port in Dover, I was just really excited!
We had a very long journey on the coach, but I couldn’t sleep all day and I loved watching all the DVDs!  When we got to the Jufa Hostel where we were staying it was really exciting.  The place was huge with loads of outside space and a Wii room.  When we found our room there were sweets left on our beds!
I had a really fun time at Legoland.  At first I felt nervous in case I got lost and I can’t speak German, but I stuck with my group all the time.  I loved most of the rides but my favourite was the laser ride in the Kingdom of the Pharaohs.  I also loved spending my euros in the Lego shop!  It was really fun being at the park with all the other Cubs." Ali

"In the summer I went to Legoland in Germany.  Lots of cubs went and my friends were Seb, Daniel and Mathew.  It took more than a whole day on the coach to get there but it was well worth it.  The best thing at Legoland was the backwards train.  But, I also liked the driving school and got a license, I even got wet in the carwash!  Swimming was very fun especially the current pool.
On the way home the boat rocked and I felt like I would fall over. I had lots of fun and met a new akela called James who was really good." Fraser

Where did we stay?
We stayed at the Jufa Kempten Guesthouse.  They had some fantastic facilities; games rooms, cinema room, wii room, table tennis, football, basketball and much more.  We have put some pictures below, or you could check out the Jufa website.

Legoland Germany
The park was huge, as large as 26 football fields!  The centrepiece of the park was Miniland.  Here, on a scale of 1:20, famous European towns and landscapes had been recreated from over 25 million LEGO bricks, with loving attention to detail.  To make Miniland as realistic as possible, people, animals, cars, ships, trains and aeroplanes could all be moved at the touch of a button – together with the appropriate background noises.  Find out more about Legoland Germany on their website.

CamboMare Water Park
We made use of the facilities at CamboMare on Sunday before dinner, having left the Legoland park slightly earlier. There were indoor and outdoor pools, as well as water slides and other outdoor activities.  Find out more on their website.
