SPRING has sprung in the real world – but for millions of Game Of Thrones viewers, winter is here.
The final season of the gripping TV series — known for its “winter is coming” warning — hits our screens on Monday.

Win FREE tickets to LEGOLAND’s new Haunted House
LEGOLAND Windsor Resort has got it fright with its creepy new ride Haunted House Monster Party.
More than 106,000 bricks were used to create the mind-boggling new ride, which opens tomorrow, and even as you are queuing for it there is spooky music playing and ghouls and gargoyles hiding here and there.
Damien McFadden – The Sun Natasha Harding, husband Zak, and kids Paul and Lexi have a scarily good day out at Legoland’s new Haunted House
It is very dark once you enter the mansion which adds to the feeling that something creepy is about to happen. Guests at Haunted House Monster Party are greeted by LEGO Monster Minifigures, including a zombie butler and a glowing ghost.
The ride itself takes place in the grand banquet room where you will take a seat with up to 75 other riders.
But for our trip, me, my husband Paul, and kids Zak, 12, and Lexi, five, had it all to ourselves. Lord Vampyre performs his favourite party trick and turns the room upside down.
You feel as though you are turning 360 degrees, but you are not — it is an amazing illusion.
It is one of the best rides we have experienced — and we couldn’t stop talking about it afterwards as we tried to work out what just happened.
And you can enjoy it too, courtesy of Sun Superdays.
Starting tomorrow, you can get two FREE tickets to LEGOLAND Windsor Resort, worth up to £120. All you need to do is collect NINE Sun Savers codes from those printed daily in the paper from tomorrow until April 30.
You can also get your tickets by collecting TEN printed tokens and using the booking form found in tomorrow’s paper, but exclusively with Sun Savers you can pick the date you go.
Pick up tomorrow’s Sun for our four-page LEGOLAND pullout and to find out more.
