Legoland Windsor is to try again to get permission for a new 'haunted house' attraction at its theme park in Winkfield Road.
Royal Borough planning councillors refused to give the go-ahead last Wednesday, fearing it could add to existing traffic congestion by attracting more people.
Now theme park bosses hope a detailed report due to be made public next week will persuade councillors to change their mind.
The report has been prepared by a consultancy company and analyses the effectiveness of recent traffic trials that directed cars for Legoland along alternative routes.
It is due to go onto the Royal Borough's website next week.
Royal Borough councillor Lynne Jones (Independent, Old Windsor) said she feels councillors were kept in the dark too long.
She said: "We kept being told the trials were a success without anything to back it up. No one is being transparent.
"I'm very embarrassed when I'm asked as ward councillor what's going on and I have to admit I don't know."
One of the three alternative routes tried out during the trials - sending traffic for Legoland up Goslar Way instead of Imperial Road is to be made permanent.
But no final decision has been made yet about the other two, which sent traffic through Old Windsor and the Bray/Holyport area.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
