LEGOLAND® New York to open in 2020

Merlin Entertainments Chief Executive Officer Nick Varney officially announced that LEGOLAND® New York is being built in Goshen, NY, which is an hour’s drive from Manhattan.  

The Park’s design will build upon the successful models of parks operating in California, Florida, the United Kingdom, Germany, Malaysia, Denmark, Dubai and Japan.  

The New York Park is expected to be ready by 2020 and will be open seasonally from April 1 to November 1. Designed for children ages 2 to 12, LEGOLAND is a world of fun and adventure where the emphasis is placed on rides and attractions suitable for families with young children.  

LEGOLAND is split into a number of highly LEGO® themed areas, which consist of more than 50 rides, shows and attractions. Attractions include the LEGOLAND Driving School, where kids learn to drive a LEGO themed car. The Dragon “pink knuckle” roller coaster will excite children without being too scary and the LEGO 4D Movie Theater will show a selection of LEGO movies.  

Miniland is the heart of every LEGOLAND park and includes cities and iconic landscapes in miniature scale built out of millions of LEGO bricks. Other themed areas include LEGO Friends and LEGO® NINJAGO®.

Additionally, a 250-room LEGOLAND Hotel will be built and open year-round. The Hotel will immerse guests into a creative LEGO world designed to bring children’s imaginations to life with specially-themed rooms.  Millions of LEGO bricks will make up the hundreds of LEGO models that will be located throughout the Hotel. The LEGOLAND Hotel is built for kids to take control, with LEGO surprises around every corner.
