LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort recently announced the opening of its latest hi-tech attraction, LEGO® NINJAGOTM The Ride, the very first of its kind in Asia. The new ride enables you to use your hands to throw virtual lightning bolts, move shockwaves, send ice soaring and emit fireballs with incredible accuracy. The ride is the Resort’s largest addition since its opening and is set to redefine the theme park experience for you and your family!
LEGO® NINJAGOTM The Ride is a fully immersive 4D dark ride inspired by the highly popular LEGO® line of NINJAGOTM toys and TV series, allowing you and your family to become your favourite characters and defeat enemies, from snake tribes, ghosts and skeletons to the Great Devourer under the guidance of Master Wu. The unique hand gesture technology by Triotech defines the experience by letting guests throw virtual projectiles with mere hands.
“These are exciting times for LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort. LEGO® NINJAGOTM is an incredibly popular brand and we’re proud to be the first to bring this experience to Asia. The LEGO® brand inspires people to grow through play and it is this commitment that breathes life into the attractions we have at LEGOLAND. We’ve taken a few steps in the right direction here, as LEGO® NINJAGOTM The Ride takes immersion and play to a whole other level,” says Young Pil- Kim, LEGOLAND’s General Manager (Interim).
With an investment of more than RM40 million, LEGO® NINJAGOTM The Ride is experienced in 3D and features effects such as heat, smoke and the wind throughout the adventure, giving you and your family the ultimate 4D experience. But the real highlight of the ride is its hand gesture technology.
Manufactured by Triotech, a global leader in media-based interactive attractions, the technology enables guests to do as the ninjas do and launch fireballs, lightning, shockwaves or ice with hand movements. Hi-tech sensors register these movements with great accuracy and seamlessly launch virtual projectiles towards the targets on display. Up to four person sit in each ride vehicle and are guided through various scenes encountering villains and challenges. At the end of the quest, you can even view your individual scores on display to see how well you have fared!
According to Young, LEGO® NINJAGOTM The Ride is among several planned additions meant to take the Resort to the next level, “We’ve always believed in introducing new additions to the Resort every year to ensure that every visit is a new one. This ride is a little special because of the large investment that went with it, but it should point to our commitment to bring state-of-the- art play to the region – the way only LEGOLAND® can. And we’re not stopping here. LEGO® fans can look forward to plenty of exciting things to come from us for 2017.”
