If you’re currently limping because of yet another encounter with a rogue Lego brick buried in your family room carpet, then this news will be of interest to you. Your little master builder-in-the-making will be able to bliss out with bricks in just a few short months. That’s right, LEGOLAND New York is set to open in Goshen, NY in the Spring of 2020.
We were treated to a sneak peek this week and we’ve got to say, it looks amazing. Expect to see some of the favorite attractions from the other LEGOLAND theme parks. Case in point, Miniland, the massive panorama of LEGO built cities from around the country will, of course, be front and center at the new park. As will seven other themed lands including: The Factory, Bricktopia, LEGO NINJAGO World, Heartlake City, Knight’s Kingdom, LEGO City and Pirate Shores.
Rides at the new LEGOLAND will include the brand new and exclusive to New York, Great LEGO Adventure in which riders will become a LEGO minifigure and travel through the manufacturing process, into a box and into the hands of their new owner, the exciting but not too scary Dragon Coaster, and NINJAGO: The Ride where you and your kids will have to use your mad ninja skillz to help defeat The Great Devourer with just your hands!
When you want to take a break from rides, you and your LEGO lover can build to your heart’s content at Bricktopia, trigger crazy LEGO instruments at Stepping Tones, attend LEGO driving school, spend some time in NINJAGO ninja training camp, visit favorite friends in Heartlake City (and grab an order of apple fries, LEGOLAND’s signature treat), and shoot water cannons with the pirates.
Phew! Just reading the list is sort of exhausting, right? The good new is that in addition to their theme park, LEGOLAND will also feature a 250-room themed hotel featuring a restaurant with a kid-sized buffet, play areas and kids entertainment nightly. So give yourself a break and make a weekend of it!
Stay tuned for more information and details as we hear about them but more importantly, mark your calendars for Spring 2020 when the park is scheduled to officially open. In the meantime, we’d suggest you wear shoes when you venture out across your LEGO-strewn floor!
