Finally! Legoland Is Coming to the Northeast—And We Can't Wait for 2020

The $350-million theme park is not only filled with incredible attractions but looking to improve the surrounding community. 

Look out New York—Legoland is coming to town! The proposed $350-million, 170-acre theme park will open its first Northeast location in Goshen (a town in Orange County, about 60 miles outside of NYC) in 2020. 

*BRB—planning vacation now.*

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:

  • More than 50 rides, shows, and attractions—including Legoland Driving School, where kids can learn to drive a Lego car.
  • A 4-D movie theater, which will be screening Lego movies (of course).
  • An area called "Bricktopia" where you'll get a sneek peek at the structures Lego developers are creating.
  • A Lego replica of famous New York landmarks 
  • A 250-room hotel decked out with—you guessed it—all things Lego. (The hotel will be open year-round, although the park will only be open from April to November.)  

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?
