I’m SO excited about the biggest and BEST LEGOLAND coming to NEW YORK in April 2020 – but I’m even MORE excited to be on the Kid Reporter Team to bring you the inside scoop and behind the scenes action on what’s “building up” before it even opens!
This really IS going to be BIG – when it opens, you can build your way through over 50 rides, shows and LEGO® themed attractions – all right here in New York – finally!!  Want to find out what it’s like to be a LEGO minifigure? Then you’ll love the Big LEGO Adventure where you’ll be magically shrunk to miniature size and be right in the action of LEGO bricks being created! And that’s not even close to all this resort will have!

Train to master the ancient art of Spinjitzu at LEGO Ninjago World! I’m most excited to check out Mia, Olivia, Andrea, Emma and Stephanie’s world where it comes to life at LEGO FRIENDS Heartlake City. And guess what else? You and your family can spend the night at LEGOLAND® in this LEGO® themed hotel! Isn’t that so awesome? To learn all about what’s ahead, click here:  LEGOLAND New York
