Guest Post: Let's go to Ninjago!

Thursday, November 03, 2016

Hi readers of hellomrstan.com! I may not be Mrs Tan but I share the same values with her that we love our family and we agree that life is worth living to its fullest.

 I am a mum to two beautiful children. Ryan is 5 and Riley is 2 this year. While my thirst for wanderlust isn’t as great as that of the wonderful Mrs Tan (how does one even travel with three kids?!), I am all for taking my kids to new play areas to explore and let loose. One of such places would be to Legoland Malaysia!

We managed to visit Legoland San Diego and its hotel when it first opened back in 2013. All the attention paid to its details and how a 2-yr-old Ryan could have so much fun and remembers about it till this year must have left an impression on him.

An opportunity arose for us to visit the land of imagination and creativity when we received an invitation to a secret ninja summit opened to media and invited guests. So with Riley, who had just turned 2 in July and a 5 year old in tow, Mrs Tan sent us to unravel the mysteries of the summit. Meet Riley who has her pose, ‘camera’ and media tag ready!


Tadah! The summit brought us to the unveiling of Legoland Malaysia’s Ninjago World. It is situated inside the Land of Adventure. I present to you a galore of pictures now as I take you inside..

 The entrance that greets visitors upon their arrival.



The dragon is hard to miss as it guards the entrance of Ninjago World!



And of course, Master Wu! (Say hi to my ninja wanna-be, Ryan)

 

Located at different parts of Ninjago, you get to meet the 4 different character, their elements in the show. (Jay/Lightning, Kai/Fire, Cole/Earth, Lloyd/Ice). Guests get to test different activities at various parts of these places too!

 

Kai’s Spinners: Test your balance as you stand on one of Kai’s spinning platforms and twirl!



Cole’s Rock Climb: Grab a hold! Kids can test their agility as they scale a rock wall!





The most amazing part within the Ninjago World would have to be the Monastery that sits in the center of it.






Standing more than nine feet tall and made out of more than 850,000 pieces of Lego bricks, this is definitely one of my favorite pieces especially if you’ve watched the cartoon. Bringing such an amazing piece of structure to ‘life’.


There are 22 models within Ninjago World. Can you spot them all?



The secret ninja summit also unveils Ninjago The Ride. The first in Asia, where it enables guests to demonstrate their ninja skills without the use of a hand held device and instead, by simply using their hand gestures. Riders collect points for their training and battle efforts throughout the ride and scores are displayed when their quest is completed.


This is how Ninjago World looks like before we enter the entrance of the ride.



There are two separate entrances to the ride. One is specially catered for the handicapped. It is certainly wonderful how they have made it possible for guests on wheelchair to experience the ride if they are able to physically help themselves onto the ride.


Light sabers they are definitely not. But just as powerful in their own elements (pardon the pun!) to destroy the Devourer.


An introduction of all the characters as you enter the ride.







Ryan is into mazes now and spent A LOT of time using his fingers to trace the maze to get to the individual elements. Even though most of them are blocked, he imagines the characters using their combined powers to break them. I like his line of thought. Good tip to do while waiting in line!


Further down the line, the husband got into the fun by placing Legos onto the characters. It’s a fun activity even for me transforming them from 2D to 3D. See the contrast of them with and without the Lego?


You are then presented with the various weapons that the ninjas use in Ninjago.






Ninja faces on

We also spent some time playing here. Look at how Ryan got the hang of this so soon!

While Riley is able to take the ride (while accompanied by an adult), we didn’t take her on it. The ride isn’t as fast as I imagined but it was the images that were screened that we didn’t want her to see. Some of the Antagonists that you get to meet on the ride (Ghost warriors, Anacondrai and the Great Devourer) will be too intense for kids who do not watch the show so do your research before taking little children on it.

All in all, the kids enjoyed Ninjago World and even Riley who couldn’t participate in the ride got to explore the nice space that have been created.

Here's a picture of the kids before I signed off. Thank you for reading and I hope you've enjoyed reading them as much as I had posting this up!
