Legoland Florida has announced the opening date for its virtual reality coaster.

The Great Lego Race will open to the public on March 23.

Riders will don headsets and race against a pirate, wizard, surfer and pharaoh in a world made of Legos. The VR headsets are optional.  

The ride is designed for guests who are at least 42 inches tall or accompanied by an adult who is at least 48 inches tall. The VR headsets, which are optional, are adjustable to fit children and adults.

The Winter Haven theme park shared a preview of the new coaster at the IAAPA Expo in November.

The footage showed what riders would experience, including action in every direction. Park officials are calling it a “360-degree adventure.”

Legoland updated its Project X Coaster to make way for the new VR experience.
