If, like us, you exist in a household of Lego lovers and are already marking your calendars, here's what you have to look forward to:
But the cool attractions aren't the only thing neat about the proposed project: According to travelandleisure.com, local schools will get perks like special programs and discounted tickets, and Goshen residents will receive half-price admission. The park is also offering STEAM-themed educational programs for kids throughout the year. Plus (yep, there's more), the park will donate a portion of its sales revenues to the town for two days.
So, who's moving to Goshen with us?
