    LEGOLAND
    Ninjago World debuts at LEGOLAND in Carlsbad in May 2016.

    SPRING BREAK MAY BE WRAPPING... in several parts of California, but that only means one thing: Several big-deal attractions and lands and rides at various Golden State theme parks are readying their just-before-summer debuts. One of the buzziest 'round Carlsbad-way is the opening of Ninjago World at LEGOLAND, an experience that will incorporate several distinct areas made for awesome action. The ride that's at the forefront of the fresh LEGOLAND world is... 

    NINJAGO THE RIDE: The Triotech, car-based zip-through is all about the interactivity and 3D-o-sity. Guests can "control the outcome of their adventure through the power of hand gestures," creating 
    "animated fireballs, lightning, shockwaves, and ice as they travel the dojos to master their skills before heading into battle." Will riders collect points along the way as you train? You betcha. There are four people to a car, too, so you just might have your bestie at your side while you head into the high-tech arena. But the ride'll sail past the 3D wall, too, incorporating 4D effects like heat and wind and smoke.

    OTHER ACTIVITIES... around the new land include a number of building stations piled high with colorful bricks -- as one would expect and hope at LEGOLAND -- as well as "a game to test reflexes" and "spinners to test balance." Shopping and eats that reflect the themes will also dot the world, which joins other LEGOLAND areas like Land of Adventure and Fun Town and other areas that provide visitors with immersive, LEGO-plentiful adventures. Opening date? Look for those adventures to begin their training in May 2016.
