What to Expect at NINJAGO, LEGOLAND FLorida

Calling all NINJAGO lovers:  If you have kids who like Kai, Cole, Nya, Jay, Lloyd or Zane, get your keys and hop in the car.  This Orlando area destination will thrill your kids as they train to become a ninja with their favorite NINJAGO friends.  LEGOLAND Florida has always been a must do theme park for LEGO fans.  But with the new addition of NINJAGO World, LEGOLAND Florida just got even better!

My family visited LEGOLAND earlier this month and like last year’s trip, we had a blast!  We loved exploring all the different areas including the latest and greatest, LEGO NINJAGO World.

Here’s What to Expect in NINJAGO World LEGOLAND Florida:

I was impressed with the different types of activities found in NINJAGO.  Whether your kid is more into building, spinning (literally) or other types of fun, there is something to draw every child.  Each activity is centered on a ninja character’s particular power.  For example, Cole’s power is earth.  His activity will have kids enjoying a climbing wall.


Hands-On Play

As you enter NINJAGO World, you’ll be greeted with Zane’s Temple Build.  Here kids can grab LEGO bricks from the bays surrounding the mountain and create anything they like.  When they are finished, they can add their creation to the mountain for others to see.  My son spent over 20 minutes building a model of Jay’s head with LEGO bricks.  Zane’s Temple Build is a great 1st stop as you enter NINJAGO World.  Creative, unstructured fun.


Interactive Attractions

NINJAGO is filled with interactive activities that draw kids in at every turn.  My daughter especially loved Jay’s Lightning Drill which tested her speed and quick reactions.

An Exciting 3D Ride

The NINJAGO Ride is super cool!  It is a 3D video game come to life.  Put on your glasses, board the 4-person vehicle and you will be off, fighting enemies such as Lord Garmadon and the Great Devourer.  It is an impressive ride!

One thing to know:  In one of the queue rooms, there are multiple TV’s that show how to play the game while riding (see photo above).  There was no wait the day we went so we breezed through this room and didn’t quite learn how to move our hands.  I’m sure I would have scored much higher had I paid attention to those instructions.  😉



Waiting to Be Fun

Gone are the days of complaining kids feeling completely bored in line.  LEGOLAND’s NINJAGO Ride has awesome and fun things to do while waiting.  Parents can stay in the queue while kids build and create.

I don’t want to give everything away, but we had a blast in this room which is part of the wait.


Mornings to Be Less Crowded

We hit this area of the park early and it was great.  We were able to do all the activities without waiting.  Later, we noticed the crowds picking up.  So rise and shine early for a less crowded morning.  (I have also heard that lines can be shorter right before closing.)


And Finally, Expect Everything to Be Really Awesome

NINJAGO did not disappoint.  It is creative, well planned and fun!  The ride is the gem of the land, but everything else was interactive and entertaining as well.  What great value it added to an already awesome park!
