New for 2017: NINJAGO World

LEGOLAND Windsor will open NINJAGO World in May 2017, a new land featuring the 4D interactive attraction NINJAGO The Ride.

NINJAGO The Ride is manufactured by Triotech, a world leader in media based interactive attractions, and features cutting-edge technology that enables guests to control the outcome of their adventure through the power of their hand gestures. Through 3D imagery, high-tech sensors and the use of hand movements in a striking motion, up to four riders per car, representing the four main NINJAGO characters, can blast animated fireballs, lightning, shockwaves and ice as they travel through dojos to master their skills before heading into battle. Riders collect points for their training and battle efforts throughout the ride and scores are displayed when their quest is completed. 4D effects such as heat, smoke and wind are also incorporated throughout the adventure, giving guests the ultimate interactive experience.

Guests will enter NINJAGO World through an archway leading them into a courtyard where they begin their ninja training with building stations and interactive experiences. These will include Cole's Rock Climb (a climbing wall), Zane's Temple Build (a building station) and Kai's Spinners. These features will test guests' physical skills, balance and agility before they embark on their ultimate training session, NINJAGO The Ride. Up to four ninjas can sit in each ride vehicle where their ninja skills will be tested as they score points battling against snake tribes, skeleton ghosts and King of the Skulkuns, before ultimately facing The Great Devourer – a giant serpent who can only be defeated by working together and demonstrating the best Spinjitzu moves. And of course, a new world means more LEGO models; over 20 new LEGO models will be located in NINJAGO World including two guardian dragons built from 77,280 LEGO bricks protecting the entrance, models of Master Wu and the NINJAGO heroes themselves.

Two other versions of NINJAGO World with NINJAGO The Ride have opened in 2016 at LEGOLAND Billund and LEGOLAND California, with another opening at LEGOLAND Florida in 2017. NINJAGO World with NINJAGO The Ride at LEGOLAND Windsor will replace Loki's Labyrinth, require the relocation of Longboat Invader and re-theming of Spinning Spider.

It is based on the popular property LEGO NINJAGO, which is brought to life by The LEGO Group through a line of popular toys and a TV series on Cartoon Network. Guests will enjoy interactive elements and this new ride featuring key characters. For the first time, immersed into the NINJAGO universe, guests can train like a Spinjitzu Master, learn to harness the power of the four elements and use teamwork to battle the Great Devourer.

LEGO NINJAGO tells the story of four young ninja heroes – Kai, Jay, Cole and Zane – who train under the watchful eye of Master Wu to master an ancient martial art – Spinjitzu. LEGO NINJAGO is one of the most successful LEGO properties. Last year, brand new episodes of the popular series, NINJAGO: Masters of Spinjitzu, aired on Cartoon Network and 22 new building sets loaded with features and functions were released.

Opens on the 26th May 2017.
