The newest US LEGO theme park, LEGOLAND New York Resort, will open on July 4, 2020.
LEGOLAND New York Resort will hold its grand opening on July 4, 2020. The 150 acre destination will be split into several distinct lands. As well as City, Miniland, Castle, DUPLO and NINJAGO areas – which will all borrow from existing LEGOLAND locations – a Pirates themed area with several boat rides.
“The Fourth of July means family and at LEGOLAND theme parks, families can ride, climb, play, learn and build together,” says Matt Besterman, Public Relations Manager, LEGOLAND New York. “At the same time, kids can celebrate their own independence by riding their first roller coaster, the Dragon, or driving their first car at LEGOLAND Driving School. We’re thrilled to invite families across the northeast, the country and the world to make our theme park a tradition for summer fun. 4th July 2020 marks the opening of the first major theme park in the northeast in decades is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and you can be sure we’ll throw a star-spangled party to celebrate it!”
“Our park is in high gear and we’re on track for opening. Buildings are going up, concrete is being poured and construction is buzzing across our site. Ride components, such as the track for our Dragon coaster, are arriving in Goshen to be installed,” says John Ussher, Senior Divisional Director, LEGOLAND New York. “Our LEGO models – more than 15,000 of them – are being shipped to our site from Merlin Magic Making workshops all over the world. This is truly a global effort, with thousands of people working together to build the ultimate LEGO theme park destination here in the Hudson Valley.”
The new theme park was first announced back in 2017.
