LEGOLAND California Resort has announced plans for a new NINJAGO land at the park in 2016, along with NINJAGO - The Ride. NINJAGO - The Ride will also debut in 2016 in LEGOLAND Billund, in Denmark.

Guests will enter the new NINJAGO land through a giant archway behind Imagination Zone, leading them into a courtyard where they begin their ninja training. The new land features LEGO building stations, a game to test reflexes, spinners to test balance, Asian cuisine and a new shopping venue. Interactive experiences will test guests' physical skills, balance and agility before they can prep for their ultimate training session: NINJAGO – The Ride.

NINJAGO - The Ride enables guests to control the outcome of their adventure through the power of their hand gestures. Through 3D imagery, high-tech sensors and the use of hand movements in a striking motion, up to four riders per car, representing the four main NINJAGO characters, can blast animated fireballs, lightning, shockwaves and ice as they travel through dojos to master their skills before heading into battle. Riders collect points for their training and battle efforts throughout the ride and scores are displayed when their quest is completed. "4D" effects such as heat, smoke and wind are also incorporated throughout the adventure.

LEGO NINJAGO is a TV series on Cartoon Network and LEGO property. It tells the story of four young ninja heroes – Kai, Jay, Cole and Zane – who train under the watchful eye of Master Wu to master an ancient martial art – Spinjitzu. This year, new episodes of the TV series aired on Cartoon Network and LEGO released 22 new NINJAGO-themed building sets.
