1. To experience LEGO NINJAGO World
The eagerly anticipated LEGO NINJAGO World officially opened on 12th January. The new immersive land invites guests to “become the ninja” and embark on an action-packed adventure like no other! LEGO fans will recognise the theme of the new area, as it’s inspired by the popular LEGO building sets as well as the ‘LEGO NINJAGO: Masters of Spinjitzu’ TV series. There’s plenty to explore, with a ground-breaking star attraction, character meet and greet opportunities with sibling ninjas Kai and Nya and a ninja training camp where you can learn a range of martial arts skills. You’ll also be able to pick up some exclusive souvenirs, as well as LEGO NINJAGO building sets and clothing from Wu’s Warehouse.
2. To try the park’s newest ride
LEGO NINJAGO World boasts a show stopping new attraction called LEGO NINJAGO The Ride. The attraction is an absolute must-try and features impressive state-of-the-art technology. Prepare for battle as you enter the darkness and come face to face with evil LEGO villains. You’ll have to fight them off using the new ninja moves you've picked up in the training camp. The amazing technology allows you to fling blazing fireballs and electrifying lightning bolts at your enemies using just your hands. Combining advanced 3D computer animation and 4D special effects, you’ll become immersed into the LEGO NINJAGO World. The whole family can enjoy this attraction, with the ride vehicles seating up to four people at a time. This means you’re not just battling against the villains, but each other too!
3. To stay at one of the coolest hotels in Orlando
The LEGOLAND Florida Resort is adding a brand new hotel to its collection. There’s not too long to wait either, as the LEGOLAND Beach Retreat will officially welcome guests on 7th April 2017, and you can already book your stay now! As the name suggests, the hotel is beach themed and features a lighthouse, swimming pool, a sandy play area for the kids and a beach bar for the grown-ups. Made up of 83 brightly coloured bungalows, the hotel is perfect for families and groups as each one can sleep up to 5 guests. The colourful beach theming runs throughout the bungalows, with popular characters, palm trees, and sunset beach scenes painted on the walls, and a box of LEGO bricks so that you can get creative. Of course, staying at the hotel means that you’ll be able to benefit from early admission to the LEGOLAND Florida theme park! Sounds good, right?
4. The new attractions
Even if you’ve been to LEGOLAND Florida before, there’s now so much more to see. After welcoming several exciting new attractions in 2016, as well as the new LEGO NINJAGO World that’s just opened, this year is the perfect time to experience their latest offerings. Build-A-Boat (at the LEGOLAND Water Park) is something the little ones will love, and is a place where they can create their own LEGO model boats and race them along the fast-flowing river as the crowd cheers. LEGO NEXO Knights 4D- The Book of Creativity is an immersive 4D experience that sees the LEGO-NEXO Knights come to life in 3D and appear to burst out of the screen. The 12 minute show takes you along on an adventure as the knights try to defeat the evil Jestro.
