LEGO NINJAGO dragon toured Manchester en route to LLDC

A huge NINJAGO dragon spent yesterday touring Manchester, and arrives at its new home at the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester today. The brick built beast visited Manchester City football club, Piccadilly Train Station and Manchester United Football Club (Sir Matt Busby Way).

The LEGOLAND Discovery Centre team shared this information on the new arrival:

This master build has a mighty wingspan of 10ft and a crouching height of nearly 5ft – LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre’s latest installation is made entirely out of LEGO® and weighs a huge 150Kg.

If you don’t spot the Dragon, don’t despair as he will be in situ from Friday 19th May at LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre. The LEGO® Ninjago™ Dragon will complete the new-look centre, which recently invested £1million in the attraction and includes a UK exclusive LEGO® NinjagoCity Adventure play feature, new modern café with floor-to-ceiling windows, a new bigger and better Creative Workshop, where LEGO® fans can watch the LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Master Model Builder at work, a newly located LEGO® Racers Build & Test Zone and new Birthday Party rooms with three brand new Birthday Party experiences.


Complete with Dragon, the new play feature immerses visitors into a world of Ninjago™; putting their Ninja skills to the test as they embark on a journey through the LEGO® Ninjago City Adventure, as they fight to save the city! Before entering the three-tiered temple, children can practice their Ninja moves in the training camp, from interactive play to imaginative play, the Dojo Training Camp teaches all there is to know on becoming a Spinjitzu Master; play features include a dual-sided Batak Game so friends and family can battle it out and become top of the leader board!

The Ninja Temple tests LEGO® fans’ time and reaction skills before they venture through physical courses and test their own agility – play features include a Tiger widow island escape trainer climbing wall, LEGO® Ninjago  character challenges from Kai, Jay, Cole, Lloyd, Zane and Nya, crisscross maze and vertical rope climb, a spiral slide of lights, crawl through tunnel, ballpool, sky wheels, bash bags, lightening buzzer bars, Spinjitzu tornado and much more!
