Legoland New York is set to open its doors for the 2022 season on April 8. On reopening, the theme park will boast a new attraction – a water playground.

The water playground at Lego City is to feature a Lego boat building and racing experience, alongside a waterslide and giant water bucket.

Also in the pipeline at the theme park is a series of new shows. ‘Academy of Arrr’, ‘Detective Trace’ and ‘Earth Beat’, will be performed at new venues located inside Lego Pirate and Lego City.

Stephanie Johnson, Legoland New York’s divisional director, said: “We’re always looking to add something new to the Legoland New York experience. For our first full operating season, our team has been hard at work on new shows, new attractions and new offerings for our biggest fans.

“Everything we do is for the love of fun and we aim to build unforgettable memories that will keep families coming back to our resort again and again.”
