Last year the first LEGO® VR ride at a number of LEGOLAND® Resorts, and now The Great LEGO Race will soon to be speeding to the UK. Unlike other versions of The Great LEGO Race, which combine a roller coaster with a VR movie, the UK version will be a little more scaled down and available the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester. Although you won’t be strapped into a roller coaster, you’ll still be able to enjoy the thrill of the race, in the UK’s first and only LEGO VR experience. The Great LEGO Race will be speeding into the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester soon.
The Great LEGO Race VR Experience
A VR experience where we invite you to literally buckle up and go for a spin inside the most incredible, exhilarating and fun LEGO® race ever created! Immerse yourselves in a brick-built world racing brick-built vehicles in the hopes of becoming the next Champion! So step right up and prepare for RACE DAY!!
Racers will enter the virtual world and be the star of a rollicking race against several LEGO® MINIFIGURE competitors including a pirate, wizard, surfer and pharaoh.
With twists and turns throughout the course, the experience engages all senses by combining sight, sound and motion to allow guests to escape reality.
The 360-video let’s guests see all around them as they venture across a rocky mountain, rolling river and even hot lava! Each experience can lead to a new discovery like realising you’re racing against a LEGO-build rocket-powered windsurfing rig and an ornately canopied bed (called a “litter”) carried by mummy servants. Who will win is the biggest question and the only way to find out is to step into The Great LEGO® Race VR Experience.
The VR Experience is designed for guests six-years old and older and the cost will be an additional £5.00 per person.
