If you’re a Cartoon Network fan, there’s a good chance that you’ve seen at least a few episodes of Ninjago. The series has been around for years – starting with two pilot episodes in 2011. The series got picked up quickly, signing two full-length 13 episode seasons in 2011 and 2012. It has been in constant production ever since. With voice actors recording solely in Canada, the series has hosted a cast of well-known cameos and talented constants. The show also has a steady product line of toys with a flagship brand backed by The Lego Group. When it started, critics anticipated a short run. However, two seasons turned into fourteen with a strong fan following and a successful toy line that continues to evolve. The storyline is packed full of adventure and intrigue. It follows a group of six rambunctious teens who live in a fictional world called Ninjago. The six friends are teenagers but they are also ninjas, battling the evils of their world during each exciting episode. The setting of the show is a mix of modern cityscapes, futuristic tech, and East Asian myths. There are Senseis, an ongoing sense of lore, and a strong storyline of good versus evil. Each of the ninja friends has a different set of skills and is identified by their individual color.
All in all, it’s no surprise that the show and the toys are a great hit. That’s why LEGOLAND opened Ninjago as a place for fans to experience the adventure in real life. LEGO Ninjago World centers around an exciting ride where guests have the ability to blast animated fireballs, lightning, shockwaves, and ice at enemies. The ride climaxes with the battle to defeat the Great Devourer. Each rider can rank their scores against friends and family.
Starting this month, and through September, LEGOLAND is celebrating the Ninjago 10th Anniversary.
Guests who visit during the anniversary will get the chance to celebrate the decade of Ninjago virtually and in real life. The two worlds are colliding for an adventure that is wrapped in celebration – a testament to the skills of Master Wu and his talented team of ninjas.
During the Anniversary celebration a new challenge has arisen. Master Wu and his team need guests’ help to uncover the six golden fragments of the missing Golden Amulet. The beloved team has been searching for the amulet for years – and only now can guests at LEGOLAND help get it back. The park has challenges spread out throughout Ninjago World – obstacles that you can get rewarded for as you complete them and come closer to restoring the Amulet for Master Wu, Kai, Lloyd, Zane, Cole, Nya, and Jay.
The challenges at the park are a mixture of virtual games and real life encounters. Outside of the ride, Ninjago World will be filled with characters, demonstrations, and activities to celebrate Ninjago’s crowning achievements. La Lloyd will make an appearance and will host opportunities for young ninjas to train alongside him. There will be real life demonstrations about how to stand up to bullying with anti-bullying techniques showcased by Kidpower. And, there will be martial arts lessons from DeStolfo’s Martial Arts team.
Master Wu needs guests’ help to team up with his ninjas and protect the Ninjago legacy. The experience is only available for a limited time and is an exciting chance to celebrate Ninjago and take back the valuable Spinjitzu teachings from evil Lord Garmadon. Get your tickets now!
