Theme parks are the building blocks of life.
If you're a LEGO lover, today's your lucky day. The toy company announced that they are opening a LEGOLAND resort in Goshen, New York, about two hours north of New York City in the summer of 2020.
LEGOLAND New York Resort will be the ninth LEGOLAND theme park and it will also be the largest. The park will include 150 acres of more than 50 rides and attractions.
The theme park officially opens on July 4, 2020. Scroll through the photos of whimsical family fun below to hold you over till the grand opening next year.
Once you step foot into the park, you’ll be in The Factory. This is the first section that LEGO lovers will see. It’s where the Great LEGO Adventure ride will be and will give kids a chance to see the manufacturing process into a box and into the hands of a toy’s new owner.
Bricktopia is where kids will work with the Master Model Builders to construct their own LEGO creations. An Earthquake Table will determine how sturdy their LEGO towers are. This area will also have an Imagination Celebration ride and a Stepping Tones attraction that will trigger LEGO instruments.
