As Legoland New York prepares to open, the park in Goshen is starting to get national attention. The Wall Street Journal reports Legoland will "transform" Goshen, calling Goshen a "quite New York Town."

Charles Passy also writes in the article that Goshen's roughly 14,000 residents make fun of the town's slow way of life by calling it “Slow-motion Goshen.”

Legoland New York is the biggest Legoland theme park Merlin Entertainments has ever built, officials say. The Goshen-based amusement park will have more than 50 rides, shows and attractions across seven themed “lands” on 150 acres.

Officials hoped to open the park on July 4, 2020, calling the grand opening celebration a "once-in-a-lifetime event." Of course, the COVID-19 pandemic changed all that. In February, Legoland New York officials announced the massive 150-acre theme park will open this summer.

State and Hudson Valley officials believe Legoland will "transform" Goshen as well as the entire Hudson Valley, according to the Wall Street Journal.

An official opening date for Legoland New York has yet to be announced. As you wait for the park to open, check out a sneak peek of Legoland New York as well as some of the outrageous food options.
