legoland new york open for previews

Be the first to experience Legoland New York resort! LEGOLAND® New York Resort is open for previews beginning May 29, 2021, welcoming devoted fans to share in the next step in the theme park’s much-anticipated opening this summer. During this stage of LEGOLAND New York’s phased opening, Annual Pass and single-day ticket holders will be able to enjoy six of the Resort’s seven themed lands: Brick Street, Bricktopia, LEGO® City, LEGO® Castle, LEGO® NINJAGO® World and MINILAND. The final land, LEGO® Pirates, will open later this summer, as will LEGOLAND® Hotel.

Annual pass holders will be able to reserve a day to visit beginning May 19. Reservations will open for all other guests 48 hours later on May 21.

Located just 60 miles north of New York City in the Hudson Valley, LEGOLAND New York Resort is opening in phases, gradually increasing capacity in order to encourage social distancing. The Park welcomed First to Play Pass Holders earlier in May and is now welcoming all guests during the preview period with single-day tickets being sold at a reduced price of $49.99.

“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. “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).”

Pass and ticket holders will experience the world-premiere LEGO® Factory Adventure Ride, joining madcap Professor Brick in his fantastical LEGO® factory where they’ll shrink down to miniature size and witness the colorful creation process of a LEGO brick. At the culmination of the journey, riders will be part of the Professor’s latest experiment and may see themselves transformed into LEGO Minifigures! 

Young ones can also expand their imaginations and earn their very own LEGOLAND® Driver’s License at Driving School, team up to save the day at Fire Rescue Academy, patrol the Wharf at Coast Guard Academy and catch blockbusters in 4D at Palace Cinema.

More information about the final phase of the Resort’s opening, including the 250-room LEGOLAND Hotel, will be released in the coming weeks.
