35 Reasons Everything is Awesome at

Legoland New York

When Legoland New York opens in the Summer of 2021, it will be their largest amusement park in the world!

Located in scenic Lower Hudson Valley, 60 miles northwest of New York City, you can ride, climb, splash, explore and build in seven themed lands across 150 acres.

As season pass holders, my family attended a Legoland NY Opening Sneak Peek event before the park opens later this summer. Here are 35 reasons kids and parents will love a day trip or vacation to Legoland New York!

13 Fun-Filled Rides For Kids 2 to 12 Years of Age

Family fun awaits in Legoland New York’s seven lands: Brick Street, Bricktopia, MiniLand, Ninjago, Lego Castle, Lego City, and Lego Pirates Water Park. Kids 2 to 12 years old will enjoy a wide range of thrills, from rides they can go on by themselves or the whole family can do together, their first roller coaster, fighting ninjas in 3D, or epic water battles.

Brick Party Carousel

The closest ride to the entrance is a colorful carousel made with oversized Duplo Legos. My preschooler picked an animal from her Duplo set at home, while my 9-year-old loved riding a motorcycle!

Duplo Express

All aboard the Duplo Number Train! My preschooler loved being able to go on a ride by herself, and my older kid even decided to hop into the caboose at the very last minute! Toddlers less than 34 inches tall need a parent to ride along the colorful track filled with playful learning. It’s a cute photo-op.

A hit with both my kids, DJ’s Dizzy Disco Spin lets you twirl yourself silly while a Minifigure DJ blasts music. If you grew up enjoying the Tea Cups ride in Orlando, you’ll love this too.

My Ninjago-loving son was pumped that Jay had his own ride! One of the few rides my preschooler wasn’t tall enough to join, Jay’s training machine uses Spinjitzu level speed and G Forces to see if you’re ready to be a true Ninja.

A first-of-its-kind Legoland experience, the Factory Adventure Ride magically transforms you into a Lego Minifigure before your eyes.

Ninjago, The Ride

Our Ninjago-obsessed kids loved fighting villains to save The World of Ninjago. Honestly, adults will have a blast too! Depending on where you sit in the car, you will be harnessing the power of fire, water, earth or air to defend Ninjago.
