We’ve been excited for the world’s biggest Legoland to open in upstate New York since we got a sneak peek in 2018. While originally slated to open in the summer of 2020, the pandemic caused delays and now the resort is set to start its phased opening by offering preview days beginning on May 29.
Visitors to the Goshen location, who have an annual pass or single-day tickets can visit six of LEGOLAND New York’s seven slated lands. Starting May 29, you’ll be able to visit Brick Street, Bricktopia, LEGO City, LEGO Castle, LEGO NINJAGO World and MINILAND. The LEGO Pirates Land, and the LEGOLAND Hotel won’t open until later this summer.
For those who can’t wait to get in on the fun, tickets are being offered now for a reduced price of $49.99. You’ll need to reserve your tickets in advance through their online reservation system starting on May 21. Annual passholders will also need to book their spots as well, but they can begin booking starting on May 19th.
“As the first theme park to open in the Northeast in decades, this preview period is our chance to welcome families who have been patiently waiting, giving them a chance to experience LEGOLAND New York in its final stages of completion,” said LEGOLAND New York Resort Divisional Director Stephanie Johnson in a press release. “After the challenges of the past year, we know families are eager to get out, ride, build, play, learn and spend time together. Through our phased opening approach, we’re able to safely welcome as many families as possible while prioritizing the health and safety of our guests and Model Citizens (staff).”
During the preview days, guests will get to climb on board the LEGO Factory Adventure Ride, where Professor Brick will take riders through the LEGO factory where you’ll be shrunk down to Minifigure size and see the process of making LEGOs. Kids can also earn their own LEGOLAND driver’s license at Driving School, join the Fire Rescue Academy or Coast Guard Academy or watch 4D movies at Palace Cinema.
Masks are still required for guests and employees, and the full COVID guidelines can be found here.
