LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort proudly launched the world’s first LEGO® Virtual Reality Roller Coaster – The Great LEGO Race VR Roller Coaster this December. 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.
The Great Lego Race – The VR Roller Coaster Experience
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 ridden with or without the VR headset, and is suitable for children aged six and up.
At The Great LEGO Race, you will be greeted with a new colourful entrance portal, beckoning you to take on the challenge. Beyond the TV screens showcasing the fun awaiting them, kids will be treated a lively display featuring their competitor’s pit crew who are eager to race them to the finish line. Before boarding the four-person roller coaster vehicles, you will don VR headsets for an exciting race through the LEGO world.
During the ride, Bluetooth technology will sync the virtual visuals with the roller coaster’s twists, turns, drops and climbs, creating an all-new experience filled with thrills, spills, surprises and humour – done in LEGOLAND’s brilliance.
“The adoption of innovative technology within LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort exemplifies our commitment in making every visit to the park a fresh and exciting for our guests. Last year, we launched our LEGO NINJAGOTM The Ride, a fully immersive 4D ride that 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,” said Kurt Stocks, General Manager of LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort.
The Great LEGO® Race ride at LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort is now available for the public. It will also be launched in LEGOLAND® Florida Resort and LEGOLAND® Deutschland Resort in 2018.
