GOSHEN, NY — After more than a year’s wait, LEGOLAND New York Resort has officially opened with the debut of LEGOLAND Hotel on Aug. 6.
The 250-room hotel, located just steps away from the theme park’s entrance arch, is the only LEGO-themed hotel in the Northeast. Built for kids, guestrooms and suites have been designed for 5-9 people (depending on room type), with four room themes: Pirates, Kingdom, LEGO Friends and LEGO NINJAGO. The hotel also features LEGO models and immersive play areas throughout the property.
“Welcoming overnight guests at LEGOLAND Hotel is a long-awaited milestone that marks the final step in our phased opening,” said LEGOLAND New York Resort Divisional Director Stephanie Johnson. “We’ve created an overnight experience that can’t be found anywhere else in the Northeast through thoughtful, creative and educational hotel offerings that complement a day at our Park.”
Upon arrival, guests will receive a ‘warm’ welcome from a smoke-breathing LEGO dragon. A Castle play area featuring more than 2,000 interactive LEGO models created out of thousands of LEGO bricks is another top highlight, in addition to a heated resort-style pool, an arcade and a ‘Little Big Shop’. Every overnight stay comes with a complimentary buffet breakfast at Bricks Family Restaurant, which also serves a family-size dinner each night.
To keep young minds engaged, LEGOLAND Hotel offers an endless array of creative experiences through its on-site Creative Workshop, daily children’s entertainment and LEGO character meet-and-greets. Meanwhile, parents can enjoy light bites and drinks at the Skyline Bar as they watch their children explore aboard a pirate ship and castle play area in the lobby.
Back at the room, inventive amenities include the Hotel’s Next Generation Sleepover, a Google Nest that can do anything from place a room service order, to reciting bedtime stories. Each themed guestroom also offers a separate sleeping area for kids equipped with a bunk bed, pullout trundle bed and an entertainment unit, alongside a separate space for adults featuring a king bed. There’s also a welcome treasure hunt activity with LEGO prizes, access to a LEGO play bin, two high-definition flat panel TVs with complimentary on-demand content and more.
Just beyond the hotel doors, LEGOLAND New York Resort features seven LEGO-themed lands: Brick Street, Bricktopia, LEGO NINJAGO World, LEGO Castle, LEGO City, MINILAND and LEGO Pirates. The Park features the global debut of the LEGO Factory Adventure ride, which transforms riders into LEGO Minifigures, and signature rides such as the Dragon coaster and LEGO NINJAGO The Ride. Kids can also earn their very own LEGOLAND Driver’s Licence at Driving School, team up to save the day at Fire Rescue Academy and catch LEGO movies in 4D at Palace Cinema.
LEGOLAND Hotel will be open year-round and is now accepting reservations. Room rates start at US$279 per night. Packages are also available through LEGOLAND Vacations, which include a stay at a LEGOLAND Vacations Hotel (nearby partner hotels) and two-day LEGOLAND Park tickets. Guests can also purchase single-day tickets ($79.99 for adults) or annual passes ($229 per person) with or without a hotel stay.
