On 29 May this year, LEGOLAND New York had already started into its soft opening phase with a wide range of attractions and experiences. Since last Friday (9 July), visitors have been able to experience the new theme park of the Merlin Entertainments Group in its entirety – i.e. all seven themed areas and their attractions (see our current EAP issue 4/21). From 6 August, the associated LEGOLAND® hotel will also be bookable for overnight stays.
“We're so proud to welcome guests from far and wide into our family theme park with all seven lands open for the first time. To see the smiles on the faces of children and their families during our successful preview period has been the thrill of a lifetime. The feedback we've received from these devoted fans and early adopters has been invaluable as we work to create the ultimate LEGO theme park experience here in the Hudson Valley,” comments Stephanie Johnson, Divisional Director, LEGOLAND New York Resort.
Among the highlight attractions at the world's ninth LEGOLAND theme park and now the third location in the USA is the “LEGO® Factory Adventure Ride” dark ride featuring interactive “HoloTrac” technology (from Holovis), which lets visitors become minifigures themselves... (eap)
