Virtual Reality Rollercoasters in the Region: LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort and Ocean Park

Virtual Reality Coasters - The Great LEGO Race

Virtual Reality Coasters are the rage. Combining the thrill of a rollercoaster with the visual trickery of virtual reality, they provide a unique experience for riders. Riders don a VR headset, strap into their seats and get set for a fantastical ride.

Virtual Reality Rollercoasters in the Region

Now, two new Virtual Reality rollercoaster experiences have recently opened in the region, one at LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort and the other at Hong Kong’s Ocean Park.

The Great LEGO Race, LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort

The Great LEGO RaceLEGOLAND Malaysia Resort’s new VR coaster, The Great LEGO Race, places riders into the middle of a road race against whacky LEGO minifigures driving brick-built race cars. These LEGO minifigures include Pirate Captain, Pharaoh, Surfer Girl, Trendsetter and Wizard.

The three-minute ride is inspired by the way kids play with LEGO toys and is designed to allow riders to enter an imaginary world built entirely out of LEGO bricks. It combines characters with action and storytelling to create a new experience for riders.

The Great LEGO Race at LEGOLAND Malaysia ResortThe Great Race replaces LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort’s Project X rollercoaster. It can be ridden with or without the VR headset. It is the first VR coaster in any LEGOLAND theme park.
