LEGOLAND said “all guests and staff are safe,” but the LEGOLAND Resort Hotel remained closed pending investigations.

Twitter user @daddyfitnessjou shared a video of the incident as he was about to check into the hotel moments before the fire broke out.

It was originally announced that the hotel would reopen yesterday, August 3rd. However, due to strict inspections to ensure the necessary “remediation work” was undertaken, the resort’s reopening date has been pushed back to August 4.

The resort told BerkshireLive that guests who were scheduled to stay in the affected building were offered a full refund or alternative free accommodation.

The rest of LEGOLAND Windsor Resort remains open following the incident.
