Ninjago World, the latest addition at Legoland Florida Resort in Winter Haven, will open Jan. 12, the park announced Friday morning.
The world, being built on 3 acres of land, will include Ninjago The Ride, manufactured by Triotech, a Canada-based company that makes media-based, interactive attractions.
The ride will feature Maestro hand gesture technology, which enables guests to control the game with hand gestures without using a hand-held device.
With high-tech sensors, riders will use hand movements in a striking motion to act like ninja warriors Kai, Jay, Cole and Zane, the main characters of the Ninjago line. Riders will be scored and collect points during the four-minute ride.
Legoland officials announced the park would get the world in March. That announcement included other expansions at the Polk County destination including the Legoland Beach Retreat, a new set of accommodations being built across the street from the main park.
It was announced in November that Legoland California Resort was getting the ride Ninjago ride and local leaders wouldn’t confirm if the ride would eventually come to Central Florida.
Ninjago World is currently under construction on the north end of the park between Lego City and Coastersaurus.
