From 1969 to 1992, the site of today´s LEGOLAND Windsor Resort belonged to Windsor Safari Park, which had been founded by Billy Smart's Circus.
The Lego Group began research for the development of a second Legoland park after Legoland Billund in 1987, with over 1000 sites considered. In January 1992, Windsor Safari Park went into receivership and the 150-acre site was chosen. New homes were secured for all the safari animals and throughout 1992 and 1993, planning, design, site preparation and the construction of the LEGO models began. The services, foundations and infrastructures were installed in 1994. In 1995, one year prior to opening, buildings and attractions were becoming established. Final installations were completed by the beginning of 1996 and employees were recruited. LEGOLAND Windsor Resort opened on the 17 March 1996. During its first season, the park attracted over 1.4 million guests.
In April 2005, Lego decided to sell the Legoland parks, owing to rising losses across the company. On 13 July 2005, LEGOLAND was acquired by the Blackstone Group and control of the parks passed to Merlin Entertainments.
