Get ready for brick-tastic fun in the Hudson Valley next summer: Legoland New York Resort will open on July 4, 2020. Situated about 60 miles outside New York City in Goshen, the 150-acre park will be the biggest Legoland yet.
The amusement park, geared toward ages 2-12, will be the third Legoland to open in the U.S., joining the parks in California and Florida. Visitors to the Hudson Valley park will be able to explore seven themed "lands" featuring more than 50 rides, attractions, and shows—including a brand-new ride exclusive to the New York location.

Some of Legoland New York Resort's attractions will include Lego Ninjago World, Lego Castle, Bricktopia, and Lego City. You'll be able to soar around the kingdom on the Dragon coaster, go for a spin at Lego City's Driving School, shoot water cannons at pirates, hop aboard the Duplo Express, master the art of Spinjitsu at Ninja Training Camp, and lots more.
Bricktopia will be the site of Legoland's new ride, the Lego Factory Adventure, where riders will get a minifigure's-eye view of Lego bricks being made.
For now, builders are hard at work on the site and the park is on track for opening, officials said.

"Buildings are going up, concrete is being poured, and construction is buzzing across our site," said Legoland New York Senior Divisional Director John Ussher. "Ride components, such as the track for our Dragon coaster, are arriving in Goshen to be installed. 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 truly is a global effort, with thousands of people working together to build the ultimate Lego theme park destination here in the Hudson Valley."
Annual passes and single tickets are on sale now on Legoland New York's website. Stay tuned for details about the grand opening celebrations; they'll be announced in the new year.
The Legoland Hotel will offer a variety of themed rooms and play areas.
Legoland's planned 250-room hotel is scheduled to open in 2021.
