To help meet the needs of guests, the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort has opened a Total Sensory Space.
The LEGOLAND Windsor Resort has opened a new Total Sensory Space in Heartlake City. It is intended to provide a calming environment for those with additional sensory needs, away from the hustle and bustle of the theme park. It is being touted as the first of its kind at a theme park.
Inside the Total Sensory Space, visitors will find vibrating bean bags, interactive projections, bubble tubes, infinity tunnels and soft lighting. Everything in the area is focused on providing a relaxing space for those needing it.
“There are already lots of ways guests with disabilities can make the most of their visit with us, and the Total Sensory Space is a fantastic addition to our existing services. We can’t wait to see our guests interacting with its many features and enjoying all the space has to offer,” said Colin Elborough, Head of Guest Experience at the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort.
As well as the main space, that incorporates musical sound pads, activity panels to manipulate and an interactive carpet, a UV rooms features brighter colours, fibre optics, and UV mats. Total Sensory designed the space, a company with plenty of experience putting together such environments for those with additional sensory needs.
“We are so proud to have created a family friendly sensory space at the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort. We hope that people of all ages with sensory needs enjoy the area, and that it contributes to making a great day out even better,” said Vanessa Ford, Director at Total Sensory.
The National Autistic Society has reacted positively to the new facility.
