Although fall has just begun, we're already turning our attention toward summer weekend getaways.
We certainly don't mean to insult the new season, but LEGOLAND New York just announced that it plans to open July 4, 2020, so we couldn't help but fast forward (albeit briefly)!
"We’re thrilled to invite families across the northeast, the country and the world to make our theme park a tradition for summer fun," said LEGOLAND New York public relations manager Matt Besterman.
No need to tell us twice! According to a statement from the Goshen attraction, it will be the largest LEGOLAND theme park Merlin Entertainments has ever built, so needless to say this deserves a spot on your list of kids' amusement parks to visit. There will be larger-than-life New York exclusive features, including Heartlake City's Balloon Ride and Big LEGO Adventure.
"It will really will give you the feeling as if you’re being shrunk down to the size of a LEGO figure, and it will take you through the process of LEGO bricks being made and put into the hands of children waiting to build with them," Besterman said.
Neat, right? Plus, there are plenty of other things to do that'll keep your budding engineers busy. You can take a ride on the Duplo Express, a LEGO-themed train ride that is way cooler than the subway, Splash Battle, a water cannon game with LEGO pirates, a driving school (no license required!) and so much more! (We can emphasize that enough!)
Have a look at the video below to get a sneak peek of the grounds!
