Legoland Malaysia Resort became the world’s first Legoland park to launch the Lego virtual reality roller coaster this week, at an event attended by media professionals.
Themed ‘The Great Lego Race’, the coaster combines cutting-edge virtual reality technology with roller coaster thrills. It was developed under the supervision of Merlin Magic Making – the company’s global creative division that designs and develops attractions for Merlin sites around the world.
“The Great Lego Race was inspired by the way kids play with Lego toys at home,” said Candy Holland, senior creative director for Merlin Magic Making, which designs and develops attractions for Merlin sites around the world. “It’s a unique Lego adventure that lets kids enter an epic imaginary world made entirely from Lego bricks, featuring a host of different themes and fun Lego characters, all mixed up together.”
Legoland Florida Resort and Legoland Deutschland Resort will launch Lego VR coasters in 2018.
