Virtual reality is coming to Legoland Florida. The Winter Haven theme park is revamping its existing Project X roller coaster into a new experience called The Great Lego Race VR Coaster, which is set to debut next year.
While wearing VR headsets, riders will be placed in the driver’s seat for an “exciting, high-octane” race through a world made of Lego bricks.
The revamped attraction will feature racers pulled from a lineup of Lego minifigures such as Surfer Girl, Pirate Captain, Trendsetter, Pharaoh and Wizard.
“The Great Lego Race was inspired by the way kids play with Lego toys at home,” said Candy Holland, senior creative director for Merlin Magic Making. “It’s a unique Lego adventure that lets kids enter an epic imaginary world made entirely from Lego bricks, featuring a host of different themes and fun Lego characters, all mixed up together.”
