LEGOLAND New York will be the largest of the eight global LEGOLAND Parks, with 50 rides and attractions across a 500 acre site. The 250-room hotel and key buildings have now been built and the rides are being installed including the brand-new LEGO Factory Adventure Ride!

One of the key attractions at New York’s Miniland will be the 19-foot-tall Empire State Building, with exactly 102 floors and 6,500 LEGO brick windows  - the whole building is made from a whopping 97,680 bricks! There will also be a a 23-Foot-Long Brooklyn Bridge and a stunning St. Patrick’s Cathedral all made of LEGO bricks of course!

The Miniland at LEGOLAND New York is dedicated to the sights and sounds found all around New York State and the first Minilanders recently got to enjoy some sunshine!

If you're looking to blow $2,000 this Black Friday, Legoland New York has you covered with their "Lifetime Pass", which contrary to its name is not good for a lifetime but rather 10 years worth of access. In addition to that, the pass also includes premium parking, access to the other Legoland resorts, a 10% discount on merchandise, 2 complimentary digital photo packages, front of line access to all rides and attractions, invites to a yearly Master Builder workshop as well as other special events, and in a first that I've ever seen on any passes, 5 complimentary nights' stays at the Legoland Hotel.

Supposedly this deal is for Black Friday only and they will be raising the price to $5,000 per pass after today. So, uh, drop those bags of money directly at their doorsteps now while you can, I guess!

This market probably appeals to a wider age range but I’d feel the same way is Sesame Place offered a 10 year pass.

Obviously the market is kids who love the IP, but what parent would bet on their kids being just as into it for a decade? That isn’t going to happen.

Also the pass with the same perks is $299 a year from Legoland Florida and it’s guaranteed to go up over the next decade so that’s a great deal if it actually appeals to someone, I’m just not sure that person exists.

Just visited Legoland NY for the first time today, we decided to take in the Brick or Treat festivities (and the cooler weather) for our first visit to any Lego park. We opted to stay at the Legoland Hotel as well, which was very nice but overly priced for what's included. Other than a small play area and arcade that's about it until the summer and the pool opens.

The park is great, it's clean and we'll manicured, eventually it will be even more beautiful. The biggest knock I have is the amount of excessive walking especially up and down hills. It's an easy park to navigate being it's a giant loop, but that also means some back tracking at times which is tough with the two large hills. 

Each section is well designed, sort of Disney on a budget, Better than a six Flags but maybe a step below a SeaWorld/Busch Gardens  Lego city had tons of models to see and Lego Castle had the cool courtyard area and of course a castle. Ninjago was the weakest theme but had the great Ninjago ride. 

As for the rides themselves, there's nothing really spectacular but the best would be the Ninjago ride, The Factory Tour Ride and the Dragon Coaster. The Splash Battle looks fun, but it was far to cold for that. Most other rides are somewhat basic or more for just kids like the Driving School which is also cool but not for adults. The 4D cinema was very nice as well and one of the better ones we have done. The Tour ride was cool but pretty short compared to a Disney park. 

Food was actually quite good in the park, we opted for Smokey's BrickBQ after seeing some other reviews and that was a good choice. The Brisket was better than Busch Gardens Williamsburg we had earlier in the year and the sides were solid too. The seasonal treats were a little more pedestrian but not bad. The Hotel food was decent albeit over priced of course, however the dessert we had, a big piece of chocolate cake was awesome and tasty. 

Overall it's a great park and for the most part doable in a day, at least with the crowds being low, on a super busy day I can see needing a second day. Many rides have low capacity and can easily build long lines. Things like Ninjago, the Factory ride and Dragon have decent capacity, but Driving School and the small flats would take longer. We had minimal waits all day and the Dragon crew was especially fast and efficient, little to no stacking, impressive on a smaller family coaster. I say family coaster but near the back it's fairly forceful and fun even for adults. 

The Hotel while nice and convenient to the park is not necessary for a good visit. We opted to try it at least this time but probably wouldn't return due to the costs and lack of other things to do. It's a Disney priced hotel but with even less amenities. The rooms are nice and fairly spacious with a side for kids with Legos to play with and some cool decor. Nice at least once but not a repeat visit. I would have rather stayed at the indoor water park resort up the way to get way more bang for my buck. 

We will certainly be back to the park especially to see it grow and expand as we are only about 3 1/2 hours away in the Syracuse area. It's nice to have more options nearby especially one that is open longer into the season, and staffing does not appear to be an issue here, other than a couple attractions being closed, some for seasonal maintenance like the boat ride. Not sure if they will do a Christmas event as they only have a calendar going until the end of November. I also will try to post some pictures tomorrow after we visit for our second day.
