America is getting its third Legoland theme park this year, and the new Legoland New York is showing off fresh looks at its construction progress.
Scheduled to open sometime this year, Legoland New York is nearing completion in Goshen - located about 60 miles north of New York City, in Orange County. Here's a flyby overview of how things look right now.
And here are some photos from around the park:
We've been especially excited for the opening of this park because of its first-ever Lego Factory Adventure ride - a trackless dark ride through a Lego brick factory where riders will be turned into Lego Minifigs. The announcement of an opening date for the park should be coming soon. Stay tuned.

I been to Legoland California and Florida and while this one is brand new, I find the lack of landscaping shocking.
That's just construction. The landscaping is the last thing to be installed - coming in only after the heavy construction equipment moves out. No sense installing grass, hedges, and flowers if trucks and cranes are gonna drive all over them.
@rave5 agreed! Surprised that they had a whole extra year to get plants in the ground due to the delayed opening, yet still looks uninviting. Trees don't grow as fast in the north, so the fact that landscaping and shade appears to be an afterthought is odd, especially as many nearby parts of NY are lush and forested. Still, I’m looking forward to this park near NYC.

Merlin are really "building" on the expansion of their Legoland brand. Sorry, I couldn't resist it.
