One of the main new attractions at the LEGOLAND Florida Resort’s THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD will allow fans to fly through the many realms that exist in the film’s universe.
When THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD launches at the LEGOLAND Florida Resort next year, Masters of Flight will allow fans to feel as if they are flying on a triple decker couch. It will be similar to the Disney theme park ride Soarin’, but will incorporate a 180 degree turn using technology developed by Brogent Technologies.
“This will fully immerse the guest in the experience they’re seeing on the screen,” Orland Rising reports Tim Chen, Brogent’s sales and marketing director, as saying at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Expo.
After the rotation, visitors will fly through Cloud Cuckoo Land, Middle Zealand and Pirate’s Cove, depicted by a huge screen accompanied by mist, wind and smell effects to add to the immersion. At least some of the cast members from The LEGO Movie will voice their characters, including Nick Offerman as Metalbeard.
Two other new attractions in the new land will be Unikitty’s Disco Drop and the Battle of Bricksburg.
“These will be all very family-friendly rides,” said Brittany Williams, Legoland Florida’s senior public relations manager. “The most aspirational of which would be [Unikitty’s Disco Drop], which will be a bit more thrilling. Lego Movie Masters of Flight will be one that the whole family can enjoy together.”
THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD will open at the LEGOLAND Florida Resort Spring 2019, and is expected to arrive at other LEGOLAND theme parks around the world over the next few years.
The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part will be released in February 2019.
