A family attraction at a local theme park has announced that it will be closing for good at the end of summer.

Legoland Windsor has said that their Viking River Splash is seeing out its last days. 

In a Facebook post to the park's followers, Legoland said: "It is time to lay down your oars and say a fond farewell to Viking River Splash.

"Join the Lego Viking fleet one last time and make your last voyage before Monday, September 25, after which the ride becomes part of Viking history."

The attraction has been part of Legoland since 2007.

Now the park says that the land of the Vikings is to close ahead of some "awesome" updates coming soon.

A Legoland spokesperson added: "We remain focused on continually developing and improving the Legoland Windsor Resort for our guests and look forward to sharing some exciting plans in the future."
