The Great LEGO Race Puts Kids in the Driver's Seat
In addition to pioneering a kid-specific, VR roller coaster, The Great LEGO Race marked the first-ever integration of the world-famous LEGO brand and minifigure characters with VR technology. Attractions Magazine reporter Banks Lee praised it for having "great visuals on par with the LEGO movies."
Located in the theme park's LEGO Technic area, The Great LEGO Race features VR headsets which, while not required to ride the attraction, make kids believe they're blasting their way through a world made of LEGO bricks. After strapping on a headset, riders travel on the ground and through the air in a wacky race against a menagerie of LEGO characters piloting LEGO-built vehicles. (Examples of the latter include a rocket-powered windsurfing rig and a canopied litter carried by mummies.) Any way you slice it, kids are in for an incredible experience — assuming they meet the height requirement of at least 42 inches.
After crossing the finish line, head to the Funnel Cake Factory, just steps from The Great LEGO Race. Serving as a complement to its neighbor, the venue looks like a pit stop made from LEGO bricks. Instead of changing tires and oil, though, it serves made-to-order funnel cakes with a wide range of toppings, including fresh fruit, powdered sugar and soft-serve ice cream. The perfect reward for successfully completing the race!
