GOSHEN – The Legoland theme park had planned on a big grand opening celebration on Independence Day, July 4, but the pandemic has pushed back the opening of the Goshen facility.

Considered non-essential construction, work on the massive project has been halted by the fight against the coronavirus resulting in company officials announcing on Tuesday that it will not open until next year.

“In this unprecedented and challenging time, nothing is more important to us than the health, safety and security of our guests,” the company wrote in a social media post.

While construction has been ordered stopped on the park, work on the new state-funded overpass on Route 17 in Goshen is continuing.
