Legoland Florida announces virtual-reality roller coaster ride

- A new ride at Legoland Florida takes you on a virtual and wild race.

The Great LEGO Race is the first virtual reality roller coaster ride designed with children in mind at the theme park. Riders can wear an optional VR headset to watch, and feel, the animated race against a pirate, wizard, surfer and pharaoh who all steer LEGO-built vehicles, like a rocket-powered windsurfing rig or a canopied bed carried by mummy servants. Officials are calling it a “360-degree brick-built world.”

Guests must be at least 42 inches tall to ride, or be accompanied by a responsible adult who is at least 48 inches all. The VR headsets are designed to fit children and adults, but can be adjusted for comfort. 

Theme park officials say the grand opening date will be March 23.
