LEGOLAND New York Resort – an outdoor theme park just outside NYC in Hudson Valley – will kick off summer with the opening of its highly anticipated LEGO City Water Playground on May 26, 2023.
After a day spent riding, driving, climbing, and building under the summer sun, guests can head to the Water Playground to be doused by a giant 318-gallon water bucket, splash on water slides and build and race a LEGO boat.
A changing area is provided so guests can quickly dry off and enjoy the rest of their day exploring the Park’s seven LEGO themed lands and can’t-miss attractions.
LEGO City Water Playground will open with a super-soaked, typhoon-sized splash-filled dance party. Hosts Slidin’ Ryan and Matty Splash will introduce a brand-new LEGOLAND New York character, Shark Suit Guy, who will lead the crowd in a massive wave to open the new attraction in a shower of water and bubbles.
New this season
LEGOLAND New York’s 2023 season marks its first as a Certified Autism Center – joining LEGOLAND California and LEGOLAND Florida.
The International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES) trained all Resort staff in best practices in serving guests with autism and their families.
New this year, every ride has a posted Sensory Guide indicating any bright lights, loud sounds, or other features that guests might need to plan around. And as it has in the past, LEGOLAND New York offers a quiet room designed for children with varying sensory needs.
This July 4, Red, White, and BOOM! is back and bigger than ever, with five nights of fireworks beginning June 30. Live music is also back with Summer Saturdays in July and August.
