Today they announced that in accordance with local health and safety guidance on the Coronavirus outbreak. Legoland has had to persevere with numerous construction delays on several occasions, this one will prove too great to have a 2020 operating year. The park will open their gates for the first time at a yet to be determined date in 2021.
The park is advising any guest that pre purchased day tickets for the 2020 season that they will be honored in the 2021 season. They same courtesy will be extended to guests who purchased 2020 season passes, they will be honored throughout the entire 2021 season. If you have booked a vacation you will have the opportunity to change it. Legoland is also offering the guests the opportunity to upgrade and receive in park retail credit.
Once the park does open it will be the third Legoland property in North America joining Legoland Florida and California. The New York location was projected to cost $350 million and is Merlin Park’s largest investment into the North American market. The park will cover 520 acres and have a 250 room Lego themed hotel.
