Who says Asia is always the last to experience thrilling new experiences or trends?
The Great Lego Race has officially opened at Legoland Malaysia, giving them the honour of being the first in the world to offer a LEGO virtual reality roller coaster. With a mix of VR and an actual roller coaster, this blend of real and virtual is definitely something new at Legoland.
And for all of us in Singapore, this unique experience sits only a few hours’ drive away.
Unleash your inner kid with this ride as you hop on the driver’s seat in a race against a cast of LEGO mini-figures. Strap your VR headsets on, buckle up and off you go! The ride features some popular Lego mini-figures racing against brick-built contraptions driven by Trendsetter, Pharaoh, Surfer Girl, Wizard and Pirate Captain, including a rocket-powered surfboard and a stylish scooter fuelled by espresso. You can preview some of the action below.
Think 3 minutes of thrills and action from every direction – up, down, forward, backwards. The ride is only raised 18 metres above ground but thanks to the virtual reality headsets – you’ll feel like you are zooming 100 miles an hour doing careering wild bends.
What’s more, you have the option to ride The Great LEGO Race with or without the VR headset — but what’s the point of a VR coaster if theres no VR..? To ride the Lego race kids must be above 110cm and at least 4 years old accompanied. And if the kids would like to use the VR headset they must be above 6 years old and 120cm.
So what are you waiting for? The holidays are here — ready, set, LEGO!
The Great LEGO® Race at LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort is now open to public. It will also be launched in LEGOLAND® Florida Resort and LEGOLAND® Deutschland Resort in 2018.
