Once upon a time, before COVID-19, many families living in the NYC area were counting down the weeks until a new option for family fun opened within an easy driving distance. Legoland New York was set to open in Goshen, New York — just 60 miles northwest of New York City in the Hudson Valley, on July 4, 2020. However, the opening has now been pushed back pretty significantly into 2021.

A portion of the official announcement reads:

In adherence to the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and evolving restrictions from state and local governments in response to the coronavirus pandemic, Legoland® New York Resort and parent company Merlin Entertainments regret to announce the postponement of the Resort opening until 2021. The measure is consistent with the closure of venues and postponement of events worldwide.

Nothing is more important to us than the health, safety and security of our team, the partners we work with and the communities we serve,” said Legoland New York Resort Divisional Director Stephanie Johnson. “We are in an unprecedented situation that has affected businesses worldwide. By opening Legoland New York Resort in 2021 we are building an attraction that not only meets our high standards, it also gives our guests the best possible experience.

The available information goes on to share that those who already hold a Legoland New York annual pass or single-day ticket will be able to use those when the resort opens in 2021. Also scheduled to (hopefully) open in 2021, is a 250-room hotel that will offer four different Lego-themed rooms: Castle, Ninjago, Pirate and Lego Friends. There is no rescheduled firm opening date in 2021 provided at this time.
