Legoland announces new ninja attraction

CARLSBAD — Young ninja heroes will be coming to Legoland next spring to bring the ancient art of Spinjijtzu.

Legoland announced Wednesday that construction is now underway for a new attraction based on the popular line of toys, Ninjago.

Details about the new interactive experience haven’t been released yet. Park officials are waiting to release more information at a formal press conference in mid-September.

The toy line also has an accompanying TV series on Cartoon Network.

Brand new episodes that were released this year were accompanied by 22 new building sets.
According to city records, a one-story 3,643 square foot building was approved earlier this month. A 12,490 square foot “dark building” was also approved nearby in the southeastern portion of the park.

The new exhibit will also feature a Build-a-Boat station where visitors can build and float boats.

The attraction will be included with park admission.

Fences were put up Wednesday morning, signaling a start to construction.

This will be the third addition Legoland has unveiled in the past three years, with the Chima Waterpark which opened last year and the Friends Heartlake City which opened earlier this summer.
