The Great Lego Race is a steel wild mouse roller coaster located at Legoland Florida in Winter Haven, Florida, USA. The ride was relocated from Legoland Windsor, where it was called Jungle Coaster.

From spring 2018, riders will have the option of wearing headsets to experience "The Great LEGO Race", a LEGO-themed virtual reality coaster

Design

The ride is a stock model from Mack Rides known as Large Park Wild Mouse.

Trains

Single car trains. Riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 4 riders per car. The cars are designed to look like they were built using Lego Technic bricks. When the ride was located at Legoland Windsor, the cars had canopies over them to make them resemble 4x4s.

History

Project X originally opened at Legoland Windsor in March 2004 under the name of Jungle Coaster. However, it was removed in 2009 due to noise complaints from local residents and replaced with the Legoland Hotel in 2012.

The ride was then relocated to its present location at Legoland in Florida, where it opened with the park on October 15, 2011.
