The Great Lego Race – the first Lego VR experience in the UK and second of its kind in the world, is coming to Legoland Discovery Centre Manchester.

Currently only in Boston, USA, the VR race arrives at Manchester’s pioneering, flagship attraction, inviting little ones to buckle up and go for a spin in the most exhilarating Lego race ever created. The experience sees Lego enthusiasts immersed in a brick-built Lego world, as they sit inside one of four futuristic VR pods, and are catapulted into a magical, immersive journey.

Timed to entertain girls and boys over the summer holidays, the exclusive 360 degree experience engages all the senses, combining sight, sound and motion for the ultimate escape. Racers will enter the virtual world for two and half minutes, venturing across rocky mountains, rolling rivers and hot lava, with each experience leading to exciting new discoveries.

Commenting on the UK first, Jenn McDonough, General Manager Manchester Cluster, Merlin Entertainments, said: “We’re thrilled to be the first location in the UK to offer this amazing experience.

“We were the first Legoland Discovery Centre in the UK, and remain the largest, so it is fitting that we are spearheading this entirely new concept. It’s incredibly exciting to be a part of, and I’m certain our Lego fans are going to love it!”

The much-loved family attraction has long been inspiring little ones through purposeful play, recently launching its new feature ‘Space Mission’ – an intergalactic experience providing budding space stars with the opportunity to build their own Lego rockets, and explore weird and wonderful alien landscapes, before taking command at Lego mission control base.

The VR Experience is designed for guests six-years old and above, and will incur an additional cost of £5 per person. Adult fans can enjoy the VR experience at the next Adult Fans of Lego Night on 1st August.
