New York’s Legoland Theme Park Finally Opens This Friday

New York is about to become home to the country’s largest Legoland, when it fully opens to the public Friday, July 9!

Legoland New York has been years in the making…and now its opening is closer than ever! With seven different LEGO “worlds” — from LEGO Castle to Bricktopia (“the land with no rules, where you’ll find the weirdest and wackiest LEGOLAND creations”) — and an on-site themed resort, it’s going to be the perfect destination for LEGO fans of any age.

The park, which has been subject to much controversy since its announcement to build in the New York town of Goshen, was originally expected to open in the spring of 2020, but was delayed due to the pandemic.

The 150-acre park has been in a soft opening phase since May 29, but will fully open all parts of the park at full capacity this Friday, July 9! It will include:

  • An immersive Legoland Hotel with 250 Lego-themed rooms
  • A Legoland Factory
  • 50 rides
  • Dragon “pink knuckle” roller coaster
  • Legoland Driving School (teaching kids to ride a Lego-them car)
  • Lego 4D Movie Theater

Only 60 miles from NYC, the Legoland theme park will have rides unique to this location as well as a Miniland that depicts NYC’s ever-changing skyline with new buildings you won’t find at other Legoland Parks.

Take a look & get excited here!
