On Memorial Day Weekend, an all-new Legoland New York water playground will debut with four water slides, a 318-gallon water bucket, and the opportunity to build and race your own Lego boat.
“New York summers are hot – which is one of the reasons we’re so excited to give families a place to cool off this year,” said Legoland New York Resort Divisional Director Stephanie Johnson. “We have no doubt our Water Playground will become the heart of the Park this season with its four water slides and new creative building opportunities for kids. Everything we do is for the love of fun, and we’re committed to building unforgettable offerings that will keep families coming back to our Resort again and again.”
Even before the water playground opens, Legoland New York will open for the 2023 seasons as an autism certified location, joining other certified autism centers Legoland Florida, the Legoland Florida Water Park, and Peppa Pig Theme Park in Florida.
Legoland New York believes awesome is for everyone and is working with the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES) to train all staff in best practices in serving guests with autism and their families. In addition, every ride will have a posted sensory guide that will indicate whether an attraction has bright lights, loud sounds, or any feature that guests might need to plan around. In addition, the park will provide both online and paper sensory guides, and, as it has in the past, Legoland New York will offer a quiet room dedicated to children with varying sensory needs. where families can combat overstimulation and anxiety with weighted blankets, dim lighting, and tactile toys.
Special events will also be returning to Legoland New York Resort in 2023 as the park treats visitors to new events and brings back signature experiences including:
- Ninjago Days: During select weekends in April and May, Lego Ninjago Days will challenge guests to unlock their inner ninja through exclusive meet and greets with favorite heroes and interactive ninja-themed activities, all included with regular day admission.
- Red, White, and BOOM!: This July 4th, Red, White, and BOOM! is back with five nights of fireworks. Live music is also back with Summer Saturdays in July and August.
