    Legoland Malaysia Resort has scored a world’s first with the opening of the Great Lego Race on Wednesday (Nov 22).

    This was previously the Project X roller coaster, but riders now get to wear a cool virtual reality (VR) headset and have double the fun. Young Parents was there on the launch day to bring you this report.

    Riders have to be at least six years old and 120cm tall to use the VR headset.

    If your child is four years old and 110cm tall, he can still go on the ride with an accompanying adult. But note that both the child and adult will not be allowed to wear the headset.
