The aim is to practice the elemental ninja skills, particularly, to master the Ninjago elements: lightning, fire, ice and earth. During the journey through the Lego themed temple, the guest will pass by different 3D-scenes, which were created by Master Wu as single training rooms.
On board special vehicles, the passenger can shoot flashes, fire balls, ice fountains, and air blasts against their virtual trainings enemies by simply using their hands. Effects like light and fog create a 4D-illusion. The ninja training is suddenly interrupted by The Great Devourer attacking the temple and everyone has to work together and join their powers for the grand finale.
Before entering the temple Ninjago fans can practice ninja skills on different stages. Younger guests can be creative in a Lego Duplo area and older builders can enjoy the Lego monastery landscape.
