Will a Legoland for New York Become Reality?

File this one under "wait and see," but there’s some evidence that a new theme park could be coming to the greater New York City area. It’s not another Six Flags or even a roller coaster kingdom, but something more interactive and imaginative. That's rightthe Hudson Valley may welcome its very own Legoland.
The plan is to utilize the site of the former Letchworth Village in Thiells within the town of Haverstraw. Recently the Mid-Hudson Regional Economic Development Council met to chat about stuff like economic development—ha—and the plans for the theme park received a positive reception.
We haven’t seen anything come out of the Legoland camp as of yet, but it sounds like $250 million could be spent to assemble all the little plastic bricks into quite the place. Eventually additions like a hotel and even a water park could be included, so we’ll keep an eye on this and let you know when they bust out the first bricks.
