Ninjago - The Ride will be the nation's first interactive theme park ride without a handheld controller. Instead, riders will throw fire balls, shock waves, ice, and lightning simply by using hand motions in their ride vehicles. We first previewed this new style of theme park gameplay, developed by Canadian firm Triotech, at the IAPPA Attractions Expo in Orlando last fall.
When the ride opens in May, it will anchor the park's new Ninjago World land, which also will include four ninja-training exercises — Zane's Temple Build, Kai's Spinners, Cole's Rock Climb and Jay's Lightning Drill — in addition to a new restaurant, Ninja Kitchen, which will serve Bahn Mi sandwiches and other Asian-inspired street food.
Legoland hosted a media construction tour of the one-acre Ninjago World site today to announce the May 5 opening date for the new land and its attractions. Ninjago is one of Lego's more popular lines of construction sets, with spin-off video games, a television series, and an upcoming motion picture, in addition the theme park lands opening this year at Legoland California, Billund, and Malaysia, and next year at Legoland Florida.
