LEGOLAND New York to open in 2020 [News]

Merlin Entertainment announced plans today to build a third LEGOLAND park in the United States, located in Goshen, New York. The park will be the ninth LEGOLAND theme park in the world and will only be open seasonally from April 1 to November 1 when it opens for business in 2020.

The park, located an hour and a half’s drive north of New York City, will be situated in the small town of Goshen near the US Military Academy at West Point and is expected to attract between 1.5-2.5 million tourists a year. The facility will also include a themed hotel and aquarium.

    You go where the money is. Also, keep in mind that the original park is in Denmark, and the second park is in the UK. California was actually the odd one out for quite a while, being the only one that never experienced anything resembling winter. It also paid for that climate, as the stronger, longer sun tears up the bricks really bad. I’ve been there twice. The first time was maybe a couple years before they removed New Orleans from Miniland, and it looked terrible. Anything red had turned kinda salmon colored. The second time was less than a year after they replaced it with Las Vegas, and the protective lacquer coating was already starting to flake off, with the exposed parts of the bricks just starting to discolor. New York gets less sun, and it’s smack in the middle of one of the most densely populated regions of the US. And they don’t have a ton of A-list amusement parks to compete with.
