Rifts are the portals between the many dimensions inside LEGO Dimensions. They appear as a ring of fire with "bricks" moving in or out of the center, with flurries of star dust and stars in the background.


Used mainly to travel between dimensions, the Rifts are created either by an ability such as Lord Vortech's power or a Keystone, like Shift, Locate, Rip or Phase.


  • Whenever a tag is placed or removed from the Toy Pad, a rift appears to summon or take away a character, vehicle or gadget.
  • Whenever the player approaches or uses a Keystone Activator
  • Whenever a player approaches a Gateway on Vorton or the Shard.
  • Sometimes they randomly spawn in levels like The Phantom Zone (After breaking down a door in the 1912 Titanic secret area) or Sonic Dimensions (as the player moves through the level)


  • Pre-Release: Before the final release, the rifts closely resembled the "Tunnels" the characters travel through from Dimension to Dimension. It appears in the announcement trailer a few times and even appears in Unikitty's character spotlight, in the background while in Cloud Cuckcoo Land.
