THEME PARKS: Triotech launches latest Ninjago ride
Triotech has launched the latest of its Ninjago World rides at Legoland Windsor, following installations in Denmark, California, Florida, Malaysia, and Germany.
Lego Ninjago World takes guests through interactive Ninjago character scenes to test balance, agility, speed and creativity: Zane’s Temple Build, Kai’s Spinners and Cole’s Rock Climb. After tackling the activities and perfecting their Spinjitzu skills, guests are prepared for Lego Ninjago The Ride.
It is the first attraction in the UK to use 4D effects of heat, smoke and wind, alongside Maestro hand gesture technology, enabling riders to virtually throw fire balls, shock waves, ice and lightning using nothing but their hands, as well as intuitively adapting to each individual’s playing style.
Up to four riders 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.
More than 20 new Lego models can be found in Ninjago World including two five-foot guardian dragons built from 77,280 Lego bricks protecting the entrance, models of Master Wu and the Lego Ninjago heroes themselves.
In addition, a new castle-themed family hotel will open at the Legoland Windsor Resort on 1st July. The 61 room hotel offers a choice between two themed room types – Knights and Wizards – each with separate sleeping areas for adults and children.
Lego touches and models large and small will feature throughout from the lobby dominated by a giant Lego Wizard to the Tournament Tavern Restaurant, indoor Jester’s Play area and outdoor Playground.
