The new area will also debut at Legoland Florida Resort next year and feature international cuisine, such as a Vietnamese sandwich shop.
The main focus of this new land will be Ninjago The Ride, where guests wield the superpowers of main characters Kai, Jay, Cole and Zane through Triotech’s Maestro hand gesture technology.
