What is LEGOLAND New York Resort?
LEGOLAND New York Resort is the ultimate LEGO theme park and hotel destination for kids ages 2-12 and their families! We’re taking the very best of our sister LEGOLAND Resorts in California, Florida and around the world, and adding exciting new attractions to build the ultimate family destination!
What Will I Find There?
You’ll find more than 50 interactive rides, shows and attractions, allowing kids and their families to spend a whole day together - or even several days - exploring seven LEGO themed “lands”. You'll be able to extend your visit with a stay at our 250-room LEGOLAND Hotel. (It will be fully LEGO themed and just steps away from the Park!)
Who Can Go?
While our Resort will be designed primarily for kids ages 2-12, guests of all ages are welcome! Most of our rides and attractions are meant for the entire family to enjoy together.
Where Is It Located?
The Resort is under construction in Goshen, New York, about 60 miles northwest of New York City.
How Big Will It Be?
Our full site is more than 500 acres. The Resort will initially occupy 150 acres, making it the largest LEGOLAND ever built by Merlin Entertainments Group.
When Will It Open?
LEGOLAND New York Resort will open in 2020.
When Can I Buy Passes?
Our Annual Passes are being released in the spring and summer of 2019 – starting with our First to Play Pass, which gives you the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience LEGOLAND New York Resort before it opens at a special Preview Day event!
How is LEGOLAND New York Resort Different from LEGOLAND Discovery Center?
LEGOLAND New York Resort is a unique indoor/outdoor theme park destination for families, with more than 50 rides, shows and attractions and a LEGO themed hotel for an immersive multi-day LEGO experience!
A LEGOLAND Discovery Center is the ultimate indoor LEGO playground, with a number of fun LEGO themed play spaces for kids age 3-10 and their families to spend 2-3 hours.

- How Can I Find Out More About LEGOLAND New York Resort?
LEGOLAND New York Resort’s primary concern is for children. We are delighted to support Merlin Entertainments’ special children’s charity – Merlin’s Magic Wand – who put the magic back into the childhoods of seriously ill and disabled children across the world. By providing tickets and financial support in the form of travel grants, they help thousands of children and their families to have magical days out every year. For children who are too unwell for a day out, they deliver exciting "Taking the Magic to the Children" projects, ranging from sensory rooms to specially adapted playgrounds.
To find out more about Merlin’s Magic Wand, the eligibility criteria and how you can apply for tickets to LEGOLAND New York, opening in 2020, please visit www.merlinsmagicwand.org. Please note that Merlin’s Magic Wand works directly with children, families and organizations that will benefit from a day out and is unable to provide tickets to assist with fundraising through raffles and auctions.
