The St. Louis LEGO Wu-Cru Team Challenge

lego-wuAre you a fan of LEGO? How about LEGO Ninjago? It is time for the LEGO® NINJAGO™ Quest2NINJAGO™ WU-CRU Team Challenge! See large scale LEGO models of Master Wu and Lloyd standing at 80″ and 62″ tall! Show off your skills in the four challenge areas, Fire, Lightning, Energy and Earth, while competing in eight physical and mental challenges with your team to show off your physical and mental “ninja” skills. These challenges include mazes, puzzles, and a building challenge.

If only my kids were just a little bit older, then maybe they could show off their skills and participate in a highly visual and interactive obstacle-course this Saturday and Sunday (July 30th and 31st) here in St. Louis!

The competition course, anchored by large-scale LEGO brick models of two popular NINJAGO characters (Master Wu and Lloyd), invites children ages 7-12 in teams of two to compete in eight timed physical and mental challenges. The top team from St. Louis will be sent on an all-inclusive trip to LEGOLAND® California Resort to compete in the Finale!
