Key informationOur rating:
Opened in 2011 at a cost of £8 million, Atlantis Submarine Voyage is a first-of-its-kind attraction that combines a dark ride with Sea Life marine exhibits. The ride’s fleet of 8 submarines can each hold up to 14 riders, taking them on a journey to the lost underwater city of Atlantis (recreated using LEGO bricks, naturally).
The large, pyramid-fronted building which hosts Atlantis Submarine Voyage features a number of elements that were partially created using LEGO bricks. This includes the large “Atlantis” sign, the murals on walls and even the replica submarine at its entrance.
The submarines are suspended on rails, and are partially submerged as they travel around a 1-million-litre ocean tank. This is home to over 50 species of sharks, rays and other fish, all of which can be viewed via windows in the submarine.
After disembarking from the submarines, riders are filtered into a small aquarium which sits alongside it. This features several small tanks holding a variety of different fish, along with a touch pool area where guests can get up close and personal with a variety of creatures.

Reviews of Atlantis Submarine Voyage:
Just got back from a 2 day trip to Legoland and went on the Atlantis ride.
See below for some thoughts.
** The following are my thoughts and mine alone if you don't agree sorry**
Atlantis if you didn't know is the new ride for Legoland and it is pretty neat ! (I don't mean clean)
We (Girlfriend and her two children 4 & 2) rode it twice once at the end of the first day and once about 16:30. They were different rides.
I'd read somewhere that its best to be sat down and that they were packing the riders in, luckily the first time there was 8 people inc us and the second about 10 so not to crowded.
Also i would say the Blue side gives a better View and ride experience and deffo try to sit with your back to the steps.
The ride itself is a little to short but i understand the huge undertaking that they have given themselves to maintain the Sea-life side of the ride so i can't grumble to much.
I can't really say anything negative about it the kids loved it and so did the adults, The theming is excellent and not OTT the outside Q will be bad in the rain but it moves reasonably quick.
After you exit is great for the kids and the shops not to bad or in your face.
Its a shame Legoland doesn't have walk-around characters i'd have loved to see the Atlantis Divers for some photo op.
On the whole a great ride, slightly short but a clever twist on the Sea-life concept
