We were invited by LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester to their Ninjago event. All images and opinions are our own.
It’s hard to believe, but Lego Ninjago is 10 years old this year! To celebrate this, LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester have launched an amazing themed event which runs from 17th July to 5th September 2021.
Throughout the summer holidays, Ninjago fans can visit and enjoy a whole host of Ninjago themed activities. For my smallest ninja, this was a Lego dream come true. Literally, returning to LDC Manchester was a huge and exciting event for my boy, he’s really missed the place during lockdown.
Master Wu and his team of ninja have been searching for their missing Golden Amulet for a very long time. Without it, and the secrets it holds, NINJAGO is in trouble! Visitors to LDC Manchester can help Master Wu and the team, and maybe go home with their own Golden Amulet!
To attend this summer long event, you book your tickets to LDC Manchester as normal and when you are there, you can get involved in all the Ninjago fun. As well as the Ninjago event, there are all the usual rides, activities and things to do. But for Ninjago fans. once you’re through to Miniland, then the fun begins.
LDC Manchester – NINJAGO Event
Miniland is where some of the most famous attractions in the North West are depicted in Lego. Using your excellent ninja eyesight, you need to spot all of the gold Ninjago figures (Kai, Cole, Zane, Jay, Lloyd and Master Wu) which are hidden around Miniland, once you’ve done this, you can go on to build a Ninjago mask or write your name in Lego with one of the Master Builders.
Once you’ve done that, you can build a Ninja creation for the Pride of Creation Shelves for a chance to win a rare Golden Amulet! We had a go at building a simple group of Ninja, we didn’t win, but we had fun trying!
As well as lots of chances to build your own creations, there is a Studio Cinema where you can watch a 10 minute long 3D Ninjago film. There’s also a Ninjago training area, where you can test your skills, including reaction times and practicing your ninja poses. Beside this, there is also a soft play area and a climbing wall you can tackle.
There’s a newly launched AR Ninjago experience which you need a phone for. You scan the QR code and follow the instructions. Unfortunately we couldn’t quite get it to work (I think it’s time to upgrade my phone); but it did look pretty cool.
We had a really fun evening at LDC Manchester. We got stuck into all the Ninjago activities, tested our skills, rode the rides, had cold drinks and cupcakes and just generally enjoyed a few hours doing things we’ve not been able to do for a year and a half. The boy absolutely loved being back there and he loved the Ninjago event.
If you’ve got a Ninjago fan or two in your family, then this event is going to tick lots of boxes for them. In terms of Covid, there were lots of safeguards in place; you’re asked to wear a mask if you can; sanitise your hands and to maintain social distancing. It felt as safe as it could be.
Celebrate 10 years of LEGO NINJAGO with an exclusive AR digital experience when you visit LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester this summer! The event runs from 17th July – 5th September. Tickets cost from £21.95 (included with all standard entry tickets). For more information, visit the LDC Manchester website.
