LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort today announced the opening of the world’s first LEGO Virtual Reality Roller Coaster – The Great LEGO Race.
Through fusing virtual reality technology and roller coaster thrills, the Great LEGO Race elevates the roller coaster experience with a new adventure never-before-seen in a LEGOLAND theme park.
Featuring a colorful lineup of racers drawn from the ranks of the popular LEGO Minifigure mystery assortments, The Great LEGO Race builds a universe of imagination that will unleash the inner child of everyone.
It pits riders in a rollicking race against wild, brick-built contraptions driven by Trendsetter, Pharaoh, Surfer Girl, Wizard and Pirate Captain, including a rocket-powered surfboard and a stylish scooter fueled by espresso. The roller coaster can be experienced with or without the VR headset, and is suitable for children ages six and up.
“The adoption of innovative technology within LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort exemplifies our commitment in making every visit to the park a fresh and exciting for their guests. Last year, we launched our LEGO NINJAGO The Ride, a fully immersive 4D ride where enables guests to do as the ninjas do and launch fireballs, lightning, shockwaves or ice with hand movements. We are extremely happy to end the year on a high note, not only with this launch but also with a new addition to the park that we can’t wait to share with everyone,” – Kurt Stocks, general manager of LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort.
The Great LEGO Race ride at LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort is available for the public to ride. It will also be launched in LEGOLAND Florida Resort and LEGOLAND Deutschland Resort in 2018.
