New LEGO® NINJAGO™ WORLD at Legoland Windsor Review

Last weekend we were invited to a very exciting event – the launch of the new LEGO® NINJAGO World at LEGOLAND® Windsor.

We arrived bright and early amongst a smattering of celebs and excitedly headed down to the new NINJAGO World which is situated under Land of the Vikings, next to Pirate Cove.

We were greeted by some Ninja’s who were showing off their moves before heading into the wonderful world of NINJAGO which takes guests through interactive NINJAGO character scenes to test balance, agility, speed and creativity with Zane’s Temple Build, Kai’s Spinners and Cole’s Rock Climb. After tackling the activities and perfecting their Spinjitzu skills, the kids then got to try the new LEGO® NINJAGO™ The Ride.


NINJAGO™ The Ride is the first attraction in the UK to use thrilling 4D effects of heat, smoke and wind, alongside state of the art Maestro hand gesture technology, enabling riders to virtually throw fire balls, shock waves, ice and lightning using nothing but their hands, as well as intuitively adapting to each individual’s playing style. This, along with 3D image projection throughout the ride, makes the LEGO® NINJAGO™ World experience feel as real as possible for aspiring young ninjas.


Up to four ninjas can sit in each ride vehicle where their ninja skills will be tested as they score points battling against snake tribes, skeleton ghosts and King of the Skulkuns, before ultimately facing The Great Devourer – a giant serpent who can only be defeated by working together and demonstrating the best Spinjitzu moves.

My kids are not huge fans of 4D films so were a little nervous of this ride at first, however, they loved it so much that we went on it five times throughout the day. I think they were not scared by it as they had something to do, rather than just watch.

Although you are seated throughout the ride it is not a restful one and I joked that it is great for getting rid of your bingo wings, as you are constantly moving your arms to throw fireballs etc at your enemy.

Of course, a new world means more LEGO models; over 20 new LEGO models can be found in NINJAGO™ World including two five-foot guardian dragons built from 77,280 LEGO bricks protecting the entrance, models of Master Wu and the LEGO NINJAGO™ heroes themselves and Destiny’s Bounty spinning and rocking boat ride.


The NINJAGO™ fun doesn’t stop there as they have a new show, NINJAGO™: Portal of Peril on the lawn area by Miniland which is a fun, interactive show where the kids must use their best Spinjitzu moves to help defeat a scary Serpentine with the help of some of their favourite characters.

Although Eliza really enjoyed NINJAGO™ world she was desperate to see the Lego Friends show so Heartlake City was our next port of call as in the summer months they put on a show which alternates with the Pirates of Skeleton Bay. It certainly didn’t disappoint and was filled with song and dance, bubbles and fountains much to the audiences delight.

Lego Friends

We visited Legoland back in April for Isaac’s birthday, so on this visit we made sure we went on rides that we missed then. When Abbey, Callan and Kian were younger they adored the Fire Academy and Driving School but the younger ones haven’t yet done either so we made sure we did both.


Another thing we had never done with the kids is played in the splash park at Duplo Valley and knowing the weather was going to be nice I had packed their swimwear. The toddler area is great with fountains to run through but I was blown away by the area for older kids as there were actual water slides for them to race down.

We were at Legoland from 8.30-6pm and crammed in as many rides as possible with my rollercoaster hating kids even giving them a go and discovering that they actually quite like them.


We finished the day with the Pirates of Skeleton Bay show and that all important visit to the shop where the kids got to choose some Lego to take home.

  1. Oh me and my kids are desperate to go to Legoland… we’re going to have to save up a bit first but it looks fantastic!

    The kids look like they are having the time of their lives!

    Good deal on the Merlin Pass too!

  2. Your children have had some amazing experiences! I must admit as regulars ourselves, I was getting a bit bored of the pirate show. My daughter would be delighted to see the lego friends and so would I!

  3. I often see adverts on TV for all the excitement, and think how much my five year old would love it. This all looks really great, and perfect for a family day. If only we weren’t 355 miles away, then it would be far more doable. But certainly something I’d be willing to travel for.

  4. I am so jealous, I bet the new Ninjago ride is amazing. We love Ninjago and my daughter is constantly nagging to go to Legoland this summer, so I expect we will be heading there at some point.

  5. Oh my word how on earth are we going to pack all of this into one day? My boy is going to be in his element. I love the sound of the new ride, especially if it sorts out my bingo wings

  6. The new Ninjago attraction looks fab! We are frequent visitors to Legoland as it’s pretty close to us so we will have to check this out next time we’re there.

  7. Oh wow it looks amazing!! We constantly say that we are going to go but we never get round to it. I’m not sure if mine are a little young yet? Maybe in a year or two they would be well into it!

  8. Wow those passes are very reasonable and if we lived closer to Legoland and other attractions I would probably invest in one.

  9. The kids have been asking to go with us for ages, and after seeing your photos I think it’s finally time. It looks like a great day out not just for them, but the entire family.

  10. What a fab day out, we’ve never been to Legoland and with two lego loving children in the house this seems ludicrous, we love Ninjago and so I might have to make this a date in the holidays.
