GOSHEN, N.Y. — So many of us grew up playing with LEGOs, and now a new theme park, not too far from our area, promises to be the "ultimate LEGO experience."
It's called "LEGOLAND New York Resort." The happening spot sits in Goshen, NY, which is in the Hudson Valley area.
Newswatch 16 sent our Ryan Leckey on a road trip of sorts Tuesday morning to the new theme park.
A soft opening was held in May as a preview for the public. LEGOLAND officially debuted in the beginning of July 2021.
Although many of the attractions are geared toward kids, LEGO enthusiasts of all ages are sure to have a blast.
LEGOLAND management says LEGOLAND took about seven years to go from idea to reality. The cost was around $5 million. It's described as more of a giant playground that includes seven LEGO-themed lands featuring more than 30 million bricks.
