Have you heard the news? NINJAGO® World at LEGOLAND opens this Thursday, May 5th! NINJAGO World includes 5 new interactive attractions including NINJAGO The Ride. The new world also offers Asian inspired food at NINJA Kitchen and a souvenir store, Wu’s Warehouse. Part of being a LEGOLAND blogger is getting the inside scoop and sneak peeks of the park’s happenings. Friday we attended the press preview of NINJAGO WORLD thanks to LEGOLAND. We had so much fun learning about this new world and visiting the park afterwards.
I hadn’t been to LEGOLAND since the little missy was 2. (Check out our trip with a 2 year old) It was a whole new experience taking a 7 year old, 4 year old and an almost 1 year old. My brother and niece came along with the kiddos and I for a fun filled day of exploring and checking out the new world. We went for a preview of NINJAGO World right when we arrived to the park. We were happily greeting with delicious fare from the NINJA Kitchen.
We tried the Banh Mi Vietnamese sandwiches on fresh baked baguette and the steamed Bao Buns. You get your choice of crispy pork belly, lemongrass chicken or baked sweet chili tofu. They were seriously delicious! LEGOLAND really has tasty food. It would be nice if other theme parks would follow their lead on this.
Part of the introduction to the new world included a Sensei who introduced the four main ninja’s that the world is created around: Kai, Jay, Cole and Zane. They represent fire, lightning, earth and ice. NINJAGO World’s attractions are designed to test guests balance, agility, speed and creativity.
NINJAGO The Ride helps people to demonstrate their ninja skills by using their hands verses a hand-held device. Heat, smoke and wind are part of the 4D ride experience. 4 guests can ride in each vehicle and are taken through 13 different ninja scenes. LEGOLAND’s principle is ‘hands on, mind’s on’ which helps the imagination flourish.
The girls were a little scared during the ride but seemed to like it after we got off. My kiddo has been doing ninja moves ever since we attended and has even set up games at home that include finding “the ninjago”! I totally recommend you check it out the next time you visit LEGOLAND California. We had a blast!
After we checked out NINJAGO World, we explored the rest of the park. We had SO MUCH FUN. LEGOLAND really is a great place for young kids. They had so much to do and there were so many rides my 4 year old could ride. There were even some she could ride by herself. I rode with her on any that needed an adult or she rode around with her cousin. Even my almost 1 year old had a great time. There are lots of places where he could get out of the stroller and explore.
I’m so happy to be a LEGOLAND Blogger this year. It is so fun to bring you the latest news from the park.
Are you excited for NINJAGO World at LEGOLAND?
