Heading to Legoland NY for the day? Read this first.

It is SO exciting we finally have a super cool theme park destination (aside from Great Adventure or Dorney Park) just minutes from the house! This theme park isn’t as strongly expensive as other theme park destinations and won’t really break the bank. Preparing is always a MUST when planning to hit out any theme park for the day.

Legoland NEW YORK has been slowly opening all of their attractions and it seems they are all finally running smoothly – I think. Still some kinks to iron out but it is fun and looking good.


Legoland has a pirate boat ride that is so enticing and so much fun for the kiddos as well as your ENTIRE FAMILY! On this attraction you get to spray and soak every person you ride past, as well as Life-Sized LEGO MINIFIGURES along the attraction. The kicker is, the people standing along side of the ride get to shoot spray you as well – out of water cannons – and you are going to get SOAKED depending on where you are sitting!

So definitely prep yourself for that. I do not think you need to wear a bathing suit as there is no waterpark. But maybe if you do this ride first you will dry as you walk around.

This is an excellent ride to start out a super hot summer day at LEGOLAND NY!

Ice Cream Hopping Tri-State Area

Summer can be so amazing with your kids off from school but aren’t we always looking for ideas to keep them busy!? (and off of video games)

Riverside Creamery 5 Water St. Port Jervis, New York

We have decided to try out as many ice cream shops in the tri-state area that we can, and we will let you know how they are!

The first hit of our journey is the Riverside Creamery in Port Jervis New York. Not only do they have quite the extensive ice cream menu, but they have a delicious lunch/dinner menu as well. Our kids ranging from ages 6 – 13 all loved the pretzel bites appetizer. The menu options for ice cream are endless and so delicious as well.

Not only do you get great food in this old fashioned, 50’s style ice cream parlor, you get a view of the Delaware River. You might see some visitors kayaking down the Delaware as you delight in some tasty treats. Nearby the Riverside Creamery are swimming beaches in Milford PA – as well as a very touristy area with lots of shops, horseback riding and dining. You also are close to some beautiful hikes in Dingman’s Ferry with breath-taking waterfalls and spectacular views. You have the option to go rafting on the Delaware as well! Many adventures available!

Here are some pictures of their intense menu of countless ice cream options:
