Guests can test their reflexes at the “Ninjago World” zones now open at Legoland Billund Resort, Denmark, and Legoland California Resort in Carlsbad, California. The parks describe the concept as a “ninja training camp for the entire family.”

Both parks unveiled “Ninjago—The Ride,” the world’s first 4-D interactive dark ride to use Triotech’s Maestro Hand Gesture technology. Riders use their hand movements to hurl virtual fireballs and lightning bolts at the baddies on screen. Heat, cold, water, and wind effects are built into the ride experience.

The attraction “raises the bar for guest involvement in our parks,” says Christian Woller, general manager of Legoland Billund Resort.

Legoland Billund’s 122-meter-long ride lasts 3.5 minutes and can handle 1,000-1,200 guests an hour. Playful Lego activities are built into the queue to make waiting time more fun.

“Lloyd’s Lazer Maze” is the second indoor attraction at Legoland Billund’s Ninjago World. There are energetic, outdoor challenges including “Jay’s Reaction Game” and “Cole’s Climbing Wall.” The 5,100-square-meter land also includes Lego models from the Ninjago universe, a shop, and a food stand. The park’s hotel has introduced 24 Ninjago-themed rooms.

Legoland Billund Resort invested DKK85 million in the Ninjago World project, making 2016 the biggest investment year in the park’s history.
