(10:36 am EST) -- Did you hear? LEGOLAND is coming to New York!
At a media event hosted last week, park officials announced LEGOLAND New York -- located in Goshen (Orange County) -- will offer more than 50 rides, shows and attractions.
The park's attractions will be spread across eight themed lands, including The Factory, with the Great LEGO Adventure ride; Bricktopia, where kids can work with Master Model Builders to build LEGOs; and Pirate Shores, a water play area!
LEGOLAND New York is located about 60 miles from New York City, and Shortline Coach USA has also announced it will offer transportation services to and from the park.
LEGOLAND New York is expected to open in 2020. It will become the third LEGOLAND theme park in the U.S.; the other two locations are LEGOLAND Florida
in Winter Haven (near Orlando) and LEGOLAND California
in Carlsbad (outside of San Diego).
