Legoland readies to open its doors

LEGOLAND New York expects to welcome its first customers later this year, some two years after first foundation was poured on the $500 million theme park located off a new Route 17 Exit 125 in the Town of Goshen.

The first major theme park to be built in the Northeast in decades was scheduled to open last July 4, but its United Kingdom-based owner, Merlin Entertainments, delayed the opening after New York State paused all construction for a period due to the global pandemic.

LEGOLAND spokesperson Matt Besterman says its been a challenge for the more than 400 construction workers from multiple trades working at the site.
