NINJAGO Weekends are Back at LEGOLAND Florida: Here’s what to expect

Ninjas, unite! LEGO NINJAGO Weekends have kicked back into action at LEGOLAND Florida after a two year hiatus and we couldn’t be more excited.

While we loved the Pirate Weekends event that helped debut the new ride, Pirate River Quest, NINJAGO Weekends are giving guests a bit of a different experience. You can expect themed activities, NINJAGO inspired LEGO builds and treats, event-exclusive characters, and more. The best part–it’s included with admission.

Note: This is a great time to buy a LEGOLAND Florida annual pass since they are offering $50 off passes through January 26, 2024.

We attended on opening day to see what it’s like so we can share all the details with you to help you plan your most awesome day ever. So, let’s dive in friends. Here’s what you can expect.

What else is there to do at NINJAGO Weekends?

There are so many things to do throughout the day during NINJAGO Weekends. Between the live shows, dance party, and even School of Spinjitzu, you’ll be on the go all day long!

Make sure to grab your event guide when you enter the park so kids can follow the “Path of the Dragon” as they build their ninja skills and collect a sticker after each activity.

Don’t miss the NINJAGO-themed LEGO Builds 

The LEGO builds are always a family favorite for us since it’s the reason we LOVE the LEGO brand so much. Kids and kids at heart can participate in these fun builds and we lvoe that they are failry close, so you can visit both consecutively during your visit. We recommend going during one of the Lloyd’s Elemental Challenge shows so it’s a little less crowded, but even after teh shows let out, there was still space for those who wanted to participate.

  • Cobra Superbrick Build (Across from Ultimate Sandwich Builder): 11:00 am-5:30 pm: Help build a superbrick that will become a part of a larger-than-life LEGO Cobra! Masterbuilders will be there to show you how to create this important superbrick they use to create these humongous LEGO sculptures.
  • Ultimate Dragon Build (Across of Safari Trek): 11:00 am-5:30 pm: Kids can put their imagination to work and create their own ultimate dragon out of LEGO and then leave it for display for others to see.
