LEGOLAND is one of my kids favorite amusement park. We got to experience the new Ninjago World before it opened to the public. The rain did not stop us from exploring the new area. We came prepared with ponchos and umbrellas. The rain eventually let out so we were able to enjoy the rest of the rides that were closed due to weather. The Ninjago ride is indoors – it wasn’t effected by the rain.
You are greeted by big LEGO Ninjago arch when you enter. Kids will have a choice of Kai’s Spinners or Cole’s rock clmbing wall. Kai’s Spinners was so much fun for my kids. They wanted to keep spinning and spinning. I don’t know how they don’t get dizzy! Cole’s rock climbing wall is interactive with different sound effects. Right in the center of the entrance, kids can build different things with the loose LEGOs. As you continue on the path you’ll run into a “whack-a-mole” type game where kids have to hit all the lights within a certain time. I actually enjoyed playing this with the kids!
Meeting the characters
The kids had the opportunity to take pictures with Kai and Nya! LEGOLAND has photographers who can take a picture for you to purchase but you can also use your own camera or phone. They couldn’t believe they got to see them up close!
The Ninjago ride is pretty innovative – using your own body to battle the bad guys. The 4-D interactive ride takes you on a spin through different scenes where you’ll be able to use your ninja moves to shoot out fireballs. The ride does keep score of all your hits. Surprisingly, my little 4 year old daughter got the highest score. I have no idea how but it goes to show size does not matter in this game! Anyone can be a ninja warrior! The game definitely gives your arm a workout since you are swiping your arms back and forth to throw the fireballs.
If you want to do some shopping, Wu’s Warehouse, has all things Ninjago!
