Find your inner ninja on September 22-24 and September 30-October 1 at Legoland Discovery Center!
With this fall’s new Lego Ninjago Movie, Legoland Discovery Center is launching a special series of events especially for Ninjago fans! Here you can take part in a ninja-themed scavenger hunt, help build a big mosaic portrait of the Green Ninja Lloyd, build something special in the master class, and much more!
I had the privilege of checking out the Lego Ninjago Movie Days this past weekend and it was a blast for kids and families of all ages.
Apart from the existing Legoland attractions (which you can read about here), new Ninjago fun has been added. Up above, you can snap a photo with Lloyd, Nya, or Master Wu – completely made out of bricks! Or be your own ninja with the cardboard cutouts next to Ninjago City Adventure, a two-story 2,300 square foot interactive play area!
And as if that still wasn’t enough, keep your eyes peeled for Kai the Red Ninja who makes his rounds throughout Legoland. Strike a pose and help defend Ninjago against Evil Lord Garmadon!
The positive energy at Legoland Discovery Center Westchester is always a plus and the staff is always helpful. Thanks to them, I was able to find the room where you can help build the big mosaic of Lloyd (or as Garmadon calls him, La-Lloyd)!
Simply pick a 6×6 plate (or try to find the corresponding number if you prefer a specific spot on the mosaic) and build along with the mapped out colors!
I played my part! Here’s plate #215, one of the last available spots on Lloyd’s face. It was so much fun to take part in, and I can’t wait to see the finished product! Don’t miss out on your chance – visit Legoland Discovery Center this weekend!
Not only that, there are plenty more activities that are unique to Lego Ninjago Movie Days:
In the Master Builder Workshop, you can build mosaics of Ninjago characters! Simply use the examples on the screen provided by the instructor. There are buckets of colors on the tables for you to build on a 16×16 plate.
It could be one of the main ninjas, or you can be creative and make your own! We decided to build Master Wu and an original ninja, J:
The second Master Builder Workshop is to design your initials using the Ninjago language. At the start of the class, you’re given a translation sheet and practice paper so that you can map out how you want to design your initials.
Using the same buckets of bricks and 16×16 plates, the instructor walks you through the basics of creating your initials. We decided to make our initials with their English counterparts, with some white highlights. What will you come up with?
And again, the staff here is so friendly and great with kids. If your family is big on collecting minifigures, be sure to bring some to trade! Many staff members have a nametag with a minifigure connected to it. Offer a trade and see what happens – you never know! (During the Lego Ninjago Movie Days, all staff members will have a Lego Ninjago Movie minifigure on their nametag, unless they’ve traded already for a non-Ninjago figure)
Lastly, a newer feature in Legoland Discovery Center is the Lego In-Store Action app!
This AR (augmented reality) app allows you to scan displays around the attraction to see Lego characters come to life.
In this particular case, the Master Wu #BENINJA Activity Station will allow you to see this popular Ninjago character:
Watch as Lloyd comes to life! Pose with him, or just take a picture of him next to your favorite section inside Legoland.
Once you save your awesome photo, tag @LDCWestchester and use hashtag #BENINJA on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook for a chance to win a Lego Ninjago Prize Pack!
