Legoland New York, located just 60 miles northwest of New York City in the Hudson Valley, will open its gates to guests soon, and to whet the appetites of visitors the park is offering a preview of its seven themed lands.

Start your adventure on Brick Street, where the park’s functional elements are found, then move on to Bricktopia, where youngsters can try their hand at Build and Test or Robotics Play Center & Creative Workshop building experiences.

Next comes scenic Miniland, followed by Lego Pirates’ splashing and sailing adventures. Lego City is just around the corner, with all the kid-sized fun of a working town, and then it’s on to the medieval thrills of Lego Castle.

Complete the loop with Lego Ninjago World, with Jay’s Gravity Force Trainer and Ninja Training Camp, ideal for young Spinjitsu trainees.

One of the stand-out attractions will be the global debut of Lego Factory Adventure ride in Bricktopia, a wild and wacky romp through Professor Brick’s marvelous Lego factory. Shrink to the size of a minifigure and discover how Lego bricks are made. Then, at the end of the ride, guests will see themselves “transformed” into Minifigures, a surprise that is sure to delight children!

Signature rides guests have come to love in other Legoland parks include The Dragon scenic ride and roller coaster in Lego Castle land, which pits brave adventurers against the evil red knights who have stolen a wizard’s staff, and the ever-popular Lego Ninjago The Ride in Lego Ninjago World, that harnesses kid’s elemental “ninja powers.”

At 150 acres, it is the largest Legoland property in the portfolio, and will feature seven lands bustling with 27 rides, shows, and attractions, 12 dining outlets, seven shops, plus the bricktastic 250-room Legoland Hotel.

The park will open in phases, with limited capacity, contactless booking, temperature screenings, masks, and physical distancing, along with other guidelines set forth by the CDC. All transactions will be taken via credit or debit card, or other payment options that are contact-free. Park passes are on sale now. For more information visit Legoland/NewYork.com.
