GOSHEN, NY, January 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Another fantastic year is here! opening on March 31 For the 2023 season, LEGOLAND® New York Resort today announced that families can “fall into summer” when the highly anticipated water playground debuts over Memorial Day weekend.
“new York summers are hot – that’s one of the reasons we’re so excited to offer families a place to cool off this year,” said the LEGOLAND New York Resort Divisional Director Stephanie Johnson. “We have no doubt that our water playground will be the centerpiece of the park this season with its four water slides and new creative building opportunities for children. Everything we do is for the love of fun, and we are committed to creating memorable offerings that will keep families coming back to our resort.”

LEGOLAND New York believes that great is something for everyone! When the park opens this season, it will officially be a certified autism center. LEGOLAND New York is working with the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES) to train all employees on best practices for dealing with guests with autism and their families. There is a sensory guide for each ride that indicates whether there are bright lights, loud noises, or other features that guests may need to plan for. In addition, the park will provide both online and printed sensory guides and, as in the past, will offer a quiet space for children with different sensory needs. To combat sensory overload and anxiety, families can relax with weighted blankets, dim lighting, and tactile toys.
