New York will be the next state to have a Legoland theme park!
Set to open in 2020, USA Today reports the $350 million project will transform 500 acres in rural Goshen, New York into Lego’s latest tourist destination.

Goshen is located two hours north of New York City so, unlike the Legoland theme parks in sunny Florida and Southern California, Legoland New York may opt for an indoor water park instead of the outside ones the other Legolands have.
Due to New York’s winter weather, the New York Legoland will also close during the freezing winter months.

This new theme park, developed by Lego’s parent company Merlin Entertainment, is the first major theme park to be built in the northeast in years, according to USA Today.
According to Merlin Entertainment, the company feels there is plenty more room in the United States for more Legoland’s and has reportedly been considering Texas and Chicago for future theme park developments.
