Opening on March 31 for the 2023 season, LEGOLAND New York Resort has announced that its Water Playground is set to debut over Memorial Day weekend.

The new Water Playground will feature four water slides, a giant 318-gallow water bucket, and the opportunity to build and race a LEGO boat. And parents will be happy to know that there’s a nearby changing area so guests can move on with their day to enjoy the Park’s seven themed lands.

“New York summers are hot, which is one of the reasons we’re so excited to give families a place to cool off this year,” said LEGOLAND New York Resort divisional director Stephanie Johnson in a press release statement. “We have no doubt our Water Playground will become the heart of the park this season with its four water slides and new creative building opportunities for kids. Everything we do is for the love of fun, and we’re committed to building unforgettable offerings that will keep families coming back to our resort again and again.”   

LEGOLAND New York — Official Certified Autism Center

Additionally, 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 staff in best practices in serving guests with autism and their families. Every ride will have a posted Sensory Guide indicating whether there are bright lights, loud sounds, or any feature that guests might need to plan around. In addition, the park will provide both online and paper sensory guides and, as it has in the past, offer a quiet room dedicated to children with varying sensory needs. Combatting overstimulation and anxiety, families can decompress with weighted blankets, dim lighting and tactile toys.

 While your clients are waiting for the park to open for the season, recommend the Sleepover Series at LEGOLAND Hotel, running through March 25. It’s ideal for a winter weekend getaway and includes activities like an immersive LEGO challenge, build experiences, character meet and greets, dance parties and story time.
