LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort 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 ridden with or without the VR headset, and is suitable for children aged six and up.
Developed in partnership with Samsung, guests can now be immersed into a completely new universe while riding a roller coaster, powered by Samsung Gear VR device. At The Great LEGO Race, guests are greeted with a new colorful entrance portal, beckoning them 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. After boarding the four-person roller coaster vehicles, guests 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 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. For more information, visit LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort’s official website at www.legoland.com.my
