LEGOLAND New York Grand Opening Delayed Until 2021

It has been announced that the grand opening of LEGOLAND New York this summer has been delayed until 2021. Obviously with the coronavirus situation still not anywhere close to being contained, it’s clear that it would be a bad time to open up an amusement park with hundreds of thousands of people in a single place. LEGOLAND New York was slated to be open on July 4 in Goshen, New York.

In adherence to the evolving restrictions and guidance of the CDC and state and local governments in response to the coronavirus pandemic, we are delaying the opening of LEGOLAND® New York Resort until 2021.

This move is consistent with the closure of venues and postponement of events worldwide. In this unprecedented and challenging time, nothing is more important to us than the health, safety and security of our guests.

If you have purchased an annual pass or single-day ticket, we will honor it when we open in 2021. Please click one of the links below for further information, and email any questions to [email protected]. Due to high volume, replies may be delayed, and we appreciate your patience.

We will continue to monitor the situation in close communication with state and local authorities. Further updates will be provided here on our website, via email, and on our social media pages.

We are grateful for your support and we can’t wait to build unforgettable memories with you and your family in 2021.


LEGOLAND California Closure Extended to April 15

LEGOLAND California Star Wars Days 2015

With the recent mandate of all non-essential Californians to stay home indefinitely, LEGOLAND California has announced that the park will be stay closed until April 15. It’s not much of a surprise as pretty much everything is still currently closed. LEGOLAND had planned on their new The LEGO Movie World area to be opened yesterday but that has also been delayed until further notice.

CARLSBAD, CA (Friday, March 27, 2020) — With the recent state order to all Californians to stay home and the rapid changes in the Coronavirus (Covid-19) situation, LEGOLAND® California Resort will extend the closure of its theme park, water park, SEA LIFE® Aquarium and LEGOLAND® Hotels until April 15, 2020.

The health and safety of our guests and our staff remains our top priority and we’ll continue to follow the safety measures recommended within the federal, state and CDC guidelines.


LEGOLAND Fire Academy (40393) Now Available at Parks and Discovery Centers

I haven’t talked about this set yet but LEGOLAND parks and Discovery Centers are now selling a new exclusive set called the LEGOLAND Fire Academy (40393). It has 221 pieces and retails for $18. If you’ve been to any LEGOLAND parks, the Fire Academy is a staple attraction at the parks. Attendees are able to ride the fire engine by pumping the crank to the building and shoot some water at window where the “fire” is happening. The past few years, LEGO has been releasing sets that have featured various attractions at the parks. Even though they are technically exclusive to LEGOLAND, some of these sets have made their way to LEGO Brand Stores here in San Diego.


Last Weekend for LEGO Star Wars Miniland at LEGOLAND California


Just a heads up if you’re in the southern California area this weekend. Monday is the last day to see the LEGO Star Wars Miniland area at LEGOLAND California so this is the last weekend that they will have it on display.

The 1:20 scale LEGO Star Wars Miniland has been on display at the park for the past eight years and they have been expanding it by adding scenes from the Star Wars Saga with the last one being from The Force Awakens.

There’s no word on what will be replacing LEGO Star Wars Miniland but it will surely be missed as it is one of the more popular attractions at the park. LEGOLAND California curiously has been removing traces of Star Wars with them cancelling Star Wars Days and now this.


LEGO Minifigure Trading Rumored to be Ending at LEGOLAND California

LEGOLAND California Star Wars Days 2015

If you’ve ever been to any LEGOLAND parks, you may have noticed there are LEGO minifigure trading posts set up throughout the park for attendees to trade their minifigures for other ones. There’s a new rumor at LEGOLAND California saying that they may be removing them before The LEGO Movie World attraction opens up later this year.

An employee told of the attendees who was there today that it was too expensive to maintain. It’s worth noting that they have noticed the park has reduced the number of trading posts and employees don’t have minifigures on their badges as much as before. This could all be a rumor but signs are pointing that the minifigure trading will be going away soon. I’m not sure if this will be the same for other LEGOLAND parks or Discovery Centers or if it is just for the one here. Thanks to Hank for the heads up.


Life-Sized LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron Now at LEGOLAND California

The life-sized LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron has landed at LEGOLAND California and park attendees will be able to see for a limited time. It is displayed at one of the entrances of The Big Shop and you’ll be able to see the car in every angle. It consists of over 1 million Technic elements and took designers and builders over 13,000 hours to create. There’s no word on when the Chiron will be displayed until but now is a great once in a lifetime opportunity to see it.

It may not be Santa’s sleigh, but it’s built with more than one million LEGO® Technic elements, features more than 2,000 LEGO electric motors and more than 4,000 LEGO Technic gears, and is a one-of-a-kind replica of the world’s fastest production car…the first- ever life-size and drivable LEGO® Bugatti Chiron is on display at LEGOLAND® California Resort for the holidays for a limited time starting December 5.

The LEGO Bugatti Chiron took a team of designers and builders more than 13,000 hours to create the ultimate super sports car. Similar to the actual Chiron, the first fully-functional self-propelled Technic car is equipped with a rear spoiler, speedometer, front and back lights and detachable steering wheel that are all fully functional for this movable masterpiece. While the actual Chiron has been designed to reach record breaking speeds of 300 mph, the LEGO version is equally impressive as it has been engineered without the use of glue to keep the model together and allow it to be driven.
