Legoland’s new attraction, The World of Chima, in which animal tribes war over an energy source called Chi, will open July 3, the park announced Tuesday.

The World of Chima will be a new “land” with a centerpiece ride, The Quest for Chi, on which guests are recruited to join Laval the Lion Prince’s side in the battle. Their weapons: water cannons, fired not only between ride vehicles but observers on the sidelines.

The attraction will also include Speedorz Arena, where players will build and race Lego chariots called Speedorz; Cragger’s Swamp, a water play area named after the bad-guy Crocodile King; a new 4D movie featuring the animal tribes; character meet-and-greets; and of course a retail store.

The attraction is tied to the Chima toy line that was introduced in January, and a new animated series on the Cartoon Network that will air in July.
