Sometimes, the secret to a Ninja's success is finding the perfect weapon to use against your foe.
Before engaging in battle, a youngster tests his warrior's meddle with a few warm-up spins.
Teams of kids work together to build bridges in the Activity Area. The object of this activity is to construct a bridge capable of surviving a series of ever increasing weight tests. The bridge holding the most weight is the winner (though every participant walks away with a prize).
Once assembled, each team must carefully transport their custom-built bridge to the LEGO pylons that will support the structure.
Here, "LEGO Mike" lends a hand of support to a bridge that may (or may not) collapse when he lets go... The secret to successful bridge building: Interlocking.
