Following the success of similar attractions in Denmark, California, Malaysia and Florida, Legoland Deutschland has opened a new park area, Lego Ninjago World.

Opened on April 1, Lego Ninjago World is the new highlight of the theme park in Günzburg, 100km west of Munich.

Parent company Merlin Entertainments Group invested €9.2m ($9.8m) in the new area, which is the largest single investment at Legoland Deutschland since it opened its doors 15 years ago.

Lego’s popular Ninjago product line comes alive across the 7,000sq.m space, immersing families into a ninja monastery, which is lovingly and elaborately designed with many numerous Lego models.

More than one million Lego bricks were used for the area and, of course, guests can meet the Ninjago heroes Zane, Kai, Cole, Jay, Lloyd, Nya and Master Wu.

The core of the park area is the new attraction, Lego Ninjago: The Ride, which offers interactive fun in 4D for the whole family.

Young and old guests can actively take part due to unique and innovative Maestro hand gesture technology from Canada’s Triotech.

A completely new experience in the fourth dimension awaits the guests in the inside of the Lego Ninjago: The Ride. The goal is to practice the elemental ninja skills and master the Ninjago elements of lightning, fire, ice and earth.

During the journey through the Lego-themed temple, guests pass by different 3D scenes, which were created by Master Wu as single training rooms.

On board the special vehicles, passengers can shoot flashes, fire balls, ice fountains and air blasts against their virtual trainings enemies, only by using their hands.
