If the load times for Kraken Unleashed are anything to go by (at that coaster has a significantly higher capacity than Project X), this ride's line will increase exponentially... I just wish there was a way to solve for the crazy capacity-killing issues with these VR options. Kraken Unleashed was decent fun but it has made Kraken inaccessible to most guests, especially those not there at opening, and I see this trend taking more rides out in this manner.

TPR had the chance to head to Legoland on Friday morning for the grand opening of The Great Lego Race VR Coaster, and we had a great time! The Great Lego Race VR Coaster is a VR overlay and re-theming to the "Project X" Mack Rides Wild Mouse located in the Technic section of the park. Overall we thought it was a great use of VR on a family friendly ride. The media they created for this attraction feels like a mini Lego Movie, it is fun, humorous and exciting - the perfect balance that you expect from the Lego brand. If this is the future of VR coasters then sign me up, it is a great way to add a little burst of extra fun if you choose to use the googles. The "normal" ride is still available for those who either don't meet the 48inch and 6 year old requirement or if you would prefer to ride without.

On to the pictures!
Lego Logo! See what I did there?
We are here bright and early at the Legoland Resort Florida!
Checked in and ready to go! I love the mini lego racing trophy!
One of my favorite parts of any Legoland is visiting all the places we have been recently in Lego form!
We were just here in November! I can see my room!
Time to play "find the hidden Lego animals!"
Here is the newly re-themed entrance!
The grand opening was super cute with each lego character from the ride having a segment! We started off with the pirates of course!
And then moved on to the wizard and his friends!
And with some fire and excitement, the ride is officially open!
Which team will you choose to race for?
The Lego VR googles are SUPER cute!
One of the things I love about Legoland is that they have TONS of activities for kids to do while waiting in line!
We are ready to go!
This is a good example of what the ride looks like, basically like an adventure in the Lego movie, with the "course" being built as you go along. It is awesome!
You can probably guess what is about to happen while they are going over the drop!
The ride is over and boy is it awesome!
I think we raced well enough to claim this trophy!
The park has SO many awesome things for kids (and adults) to pose with and in. It is almost overwhelming!
We also had to visit some of our favorites, like the Lego driving school.
and Lego fire rescue academy!
Hands up if you want to ride again! I know that I can't wait to!

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

It seemed to be well staffed and moving at a decent pace for a VR coaster!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

This is how VR should be implemented, not on 50+ meters tall thrill coasters. I would love to give this a try and *maybe* change my mind on VR coasters.
Thanks for sharing!

^Agreed. VR makes sense on family coasters like a wild mouse, but not on big coasters like Kraken.

Can you see the donkey in my toast?
