If your little LEGO fans have a need for speed, then they are going to love this new LEGOLAND virtual reality rollercoaster. The Great LEGO Race will send you racing to the park for an amazing new experience unlike any other.

Decked out with a VR headset, you’ll climb aboard an actual rollercoaster and experience all the twists and turns of the animated race you’re watching simultaneously on the headset. You’ll be racing against a variety of LEGO minifigures, from wizards to surfers, as they zig-zag around you over land, water, and air in LEGO vehicles. And of course, everything you see in the world around you is entirely made of LEGO bricks.

This is the first VR roller coaster designed specifically for kids and is targeted to riders 6 years old and up. Riders must be 48 inches tall to ride with the headset. Kids 42-47 inches high can also ride without the VR element. The ride opens at LEGOLAND Florida on March 23.

Would your mini master builders love this ride? Share your excitement in the comments.
