    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.

    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.

    This article (http://www.newyorkupstate.com/news/2016/07/legoland_officials_showcase_500_million_plan_to_thousands_of_upstate_ny_resident.html) says that the plans include eventually building an aquarium as part of LEGOLAND New York.

    I wonder if Merlin Entertainments which owns/operates both the LEGOLAND theme parks and the SEA LIFE Aquarium attractions is planning on also building a SEA LIFE Aquarium or have an aquarium be part of a ride at LEGOLAND like what's currently being planned for LEGOLAND Dubai with Submarine Adventures… https://www.legoland.com/dubai/about-us/press/from-60-attractions-to-60-million-lego-bricks--legoland-dubai-and-legoland-water-park-release-fun-facts2/

    Legoland planned for New York

    Merlin Entertainments PLC, which has built six Legoland resorts around the world, presented its plans to the Goshen Town Board and estimated the 153-acre park could open as early as 2019.
    The "Legoland New York Resort" would include more than 50 rides, shows and attractions and a 250-room Lego-themed hotel aimed at families with children aged 2 to 12, the company said.
    The project, which encompasses 523 acres, is seeking local approvals and state assistance. The park would be off Route 17 near Interstate 84.The Rockland County site had already secured more than $4 million in state aid through the Hudson Valley Regional Development Council.

    Legoland unveils plans for new theme park in Orange County

    "We don't have triple roller coasters with loops, we don't have screaming teenagers, we don't do rock concerts, we close at 8 o'clock. The ambient noise of Highway 17 will be louder than Legoland" said John Ussher, the Senior Divisional Director of Legoland Development in his pitch to the town of Goshen.
    Orange County jumped at the chance to build the amusement park after neighboring Rockland County turned down the opportunity to build it last year.
