LEGOLAND New York will be the ninth and largest LEGOLAND in the world with eight lands distributed by 150-acres of land. The park will make its highly-anticipated debut in Orange County town of Goshen in the spring of 2020 and will have more than 50 rides and attractions, including Legoland Driving School, where kids can learn how to drive a Lego car and get a Legoland driver’s license, a dragon roller-coaster when you can slay the beast, meeting the Friends from Heartlake City, building your own Lego creations, perfecting your ninja skills in an interactive virtual reality experience and taking a balloon ride over Heartlake City.
The park will cost about $350 million to build the largest investment in a single park by the owner Merlin. The investment includes a 250-room LEGOLAND Hotel. LEGOLAND New York will be open seasonally from spring to fall.
Thirty million Lego bricks are being used to built 15,000 models that’ll be located around the park.
The eight lands that will make up the park are:
The Factory: The beginning of the LEGOLAND New York experience. This land will include the Great LEGO® Adventure! The ride is exclusive to LEGOLAND New York, and will let you feel what it’s like to be a LEGO Minifigure. Riders will travel through the manufacturing process, into a box, and into the hands of a child just waiting to build!
Bricktopia: A land with no rules, where all bricks are put to work to build anything you can imagine! Guests will work with Master Model Builders to build and test their LEGO creations using devices such as an Earthquake Table. There will also be an ImaginationCelebration ride and Stepping Tones that trigger LEGO instruments.
