LEGOLAND Florida's newest attraction prepares your child to “become the ninja.”
Based on the popular television show and building sets, NINJAGO: Masters of Spinjitzu, NINJAGO World features hands-on activities that train your kids for the ultimate battle on the groundbreaking interactive ride. Each training area is centered around one of the teenaged ninja characters and their elemental power: Kai (Ninja of Fire), Nya (Ninja of Water), Cole (Ninja of Earth), Zane (Ninja of Ice), and Jay (Ninja of Lightning).
NINJAGO World is free with admission to the park. Park cost: Youth (3-12) $86; Adult $93.

Let's explore this martial arts kingdom.
1/Cole's Rock Climb
Kids put their strength and endurance to the test as they move right to left on this new twist toa climbing wall. This attraction was my 2-year-old daughter’s favorite. She highly recommends it for ages 2 to 12.
2/Zane's Temple Build
Located in the center of NINJAGO World is a giant model of the NINJAGO monastery, where kids can contribute LEGOS from bins along the perimeter. At this stop, all ages can hone their building technique.
Perfect the ancient art of Spinjitzu, while you whirl one way and then twirl another on the single platform spinners. Even though spinners are meant for kids, my husband and I found them to be entertaining! Recommended for ages 5 to 12.
4/Jay's Lightning Drill
The ninja with the quickest hands is the master here as your child can improve his or her reflexes and precision while hitting as many targets as possible in 30-second rounds. Recommended for ages 2 to 12.
5/LEGO NINJAGO: The Ride
This interactive 3D computer animation complete with 4D special effects (fog, strobe lights, heat) gives kids the full NINJAGO experience! I rode with my 4-year-old son, who was mesmerized by his ability to use the five signature ninja hand moves that he learned to throw fireballs and defeat the enemies! The technology used during the ride is one-of-a-kind. Kids under 4-feet tall will need to ride with a parent, but trust me, you’ll love it too!
