The opening date of Legoland New York Resort has been pushed back to 2021.

Originally scheduled to open this spring in Goshen, an hour outside New York City, Legoland New York Resort is built to be the biggest Legoland to date with eight themed parks spanning 150 acres.

"In adherence to the evolving restrictions and guidance of the CDC and state and local governments in response to the coronavirus pandemic, we are delaying the opening of Legoland New York Resort until 2021," reads a message posted on the website. "This move is consistent with the closure of venues and postponement of events worldwide. In this unprecedented and challenging time, nothing is more important to us than the health, safety and security of our guests."

Tickets already purchased will be honored when the resort opens next year.

Budding Lego builders will be able to test their building chops at Bricktopia with "Master Model Builders," who will provide tips on how to make their Lego creations float, fly and withstand the "Earthquake Table." 

Lego characters that inhabit the park include ninjas, pirates, princesses, wizards and dragons.

And in keeping with other Legoland Parks around the world, the New York location will include Miniland, which recreates iconic skylines and cities in Lego bricks.

The park will also be home to a 250-room Legoland Hotel which will be open year-round.
