    The negativity about building this park in Goshen continues. Citizens are concerned about the water supply.

    The resistance against Legoland New York coming to Goshen continues, even as a court ruling knocked down as "premature" a legal effort to stop it.
    The opponents say Legoland will destroy their fragile water system — and that once the water is gone, the town will follow.

    There is still a lot of negativity about building this park in its current location. There will be a lot of work needed to deal with the additional traffic on the local roads and other infrastructure.



    Based on similar-sized parks, between 1.5 and 2.5 million annual visitors are anticipated, according to the DEIS. Expected peak daily traffic is from 4,500 to 5,000 vehicles entering the park over the course of the day, with about 1,500 entering vehicles at peak hour.

    Cale Heit, executive vice president of Forrec, the entertainment design company currently working to design Legoland New York, recently spoke to Attractions Management magazine about Legoland New York:

    We’re working with Merlin on the masterplan right now. We’re going to take the best from the other parks, put it together and then add more to it as the new park comes to life.
    One thing very unique for a Lego park is the property is very hilly. It’s a really beautiful green environment and we’re utilising the hills as an opportunity to help engage guests as they walk through. The topography of the area to pulls people through the park, incorporating it into the story and the theming.
    The project has faced some obstacles but we’re using those challenges as opportunity. The site itself is quite large, so we’re using the trees to frame the park to try and mitigate any impact on the neighbours, while simultaneously making sure it's a very beautiful green space.

    Legoland would be classified in the smallest category of theme park: a family/children's park; even though, it would consist of a Legoland, Legoland Resort, and Sea Life Aquarium.
    Legoland has not yet gained local approvals from Town of Goshen officials although water and sewer use accommodations have been worked out with the Village of Goshen.

    Goshen board completes draft study on Legoland

    Merlin Entertainments, must respond to all questions raised in the report
    such as elaborating on how the water supply would be administered.

    Legoland New York would be geared toward children 2-12 and their families. Besides about 50 rides, shows and attractions and an aquarium, plans also call for a 250-room hotel.

    Further study required for proposed Legoland



    The town [of Goshen] Planning Board has decided that the proposed Legoland New York theme park could potentially have a significant, adverse impact on the environment, and has ordered an environmental impact statement to be prepared
    The so-called positive declaration, under state law will expand the scope of the study the Planning Board must do in working toward approval or disapproval of the $500 million theme park.
