For the first time in 40 years, the Northeast is getting an adventure-packed amusement park with the arrival of LEGOLAND in Goshen, a 52-minute drive from White Plains. Full of family-friendly thrills, enchanting sleepovers, and 15,000 LEGO models made of 30 million LEGO pieces, LEGOLAND New York Resort is unsurprisingly generating a good deal of excitement in Westchester County.
The resort invites guests into seven different themed lands: LEGO Castle, LEGO City, Bricktopia, Brick Street, LEGO NINJAGO World, Miniland, and LEGO Pirates. Each destination has rides and attractions, like Splash Battle, Ninja Training Camp, and Merlin’s Flying Machines. Offering both daily tickets and annual passes, the park’s ticket prices begin at $63. If loop-de-loops don’t spark your fancy, but you still cherish all that is LEGO, shopper’s passes are available for visitors who crave strictly retail merriment at the resort’s expansive LEGO Shops.
The LEGOLAND Hotel, which is the only LEGOLAND-themed hotel on the East Coast, boasts four family-friendly areas across 250 rooms, including LEGO Friends, LEGO NINJAGO, Pirate, and Kingdom. Families can experience gentle thrills while spinning on the Anchors Away! attraction in the LEGO Pirates land or de-stress by strolling through LEGO replicas of global landmarks in Miniland.
In addition, LEGOLAND will offer employment opportunities to Hudson Valley residents. Upwards of 1,000 workers will be hired for a variety of roles, ranging from front-line staff to resort and hotel directors. While the opening date remains undetermined, due to COVID-19, details should surface sometime this spring.
