It's official! A LEGOLAND theme park is coming to New York state!

There's been a lot of buzz lately about a LEGOLAND theme park opening in New York state, and today, it became official. Once complete, New Jersey residents will have a real, live LEGOLAND about an hour away! So, what are the details? The Jersey Momma has the low-down for you!

LEGOLAND New York is set to begin construction 'soon,' (official date will be posted shortly), and they hope to have the park completed by 2020.

Once construction is complete, they plan to offer the seasonal (April-October) LEGOLAND park and a 250 bedroom hotel.

Within three years time, they hope to add a 35,000 square foot aquarium. The hotel, aquarium and school programs would then be open year round.

LEGOLAND New York also plans to give back to the town of Goshen, by offering two community days a year, where 50% of ticket revenue will go to the town of Goshen itself. You can read more about how they will give back to Goshen in their pdf press statement here.

If you're wondering where Goshen, New York is, or how far of a drive it will be from your home, check out my interactive Google map below. The map details the general location of Goshen (with a yellow star) at the moment.
