Legoland Hotel is the best way to do the Hudson Valley’s new theme park

Published

on

Talk about making an entrance.

At the new Legoland Hotel in Goshen, NY, guests make their way to reception by passing under a colorful tower of blocks, a huge green dragon staring down at them from within.

The monstrous entry is one of a number of unique features at the new 250-room lodging that debuts this weekend and is the final piece of the massive, 500-acre Legoland New York Resort, which opened its theme park element this past May. If you’re looking for a last-minute family getaway, however, this isn’t it. A hotel rep said they’re already booked up through the end of the month.

“We’ve been completely blown away by that demand,” said Legoland New York’s divisional director Stephanie Johnson. 

The hotel itself is no average inn. Accommodations, from $279, sleep five to nine guests, with alcove areas to tuck in the kids. Rooms are heavily themed — choose from pirate, kingdom, ninja, or Lego friends — and children can enjoy in-room scavenger hunts that lead to their own treasure chest. Adults can enjoy a texting service that allows them to easily request things like extra pillows and blankets.

In the lobby, there’s a massive castle play structure. Handily, it’s located a block’s throw from the Skyline Cafe, which offers charcuterie boards ($26) and specialty cocktails ($15) like the Marrghh-garita — tequila, lime, watermelon juice — for moms and dads. Also nearby, Bricks Family Restaurant serves a breakfast buffet that’s complementary for guests.

Of course, the main attraction is Legoland itself and its thousands of interactive models, rides, and seven lands to explore, including Miniland and its detailed replica of the five boroughs. Staying at the hotel allows you to book a package deal and get entrance to the park for significantly less than the $79.99-$89.99 a la carte park entry fee. Plus, the hotel is a quick five-minute walk from the park entrance, so after a long day of schlepping about the theme park, the specialty cocktails aren’t far.

Actress Anne Heche Suffers Severe Burns After Crashing Car Into Los Angeles Home

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

The DMV also put NICEBUNS, FATFANNY, GOTAPOOP and BENDOVER in the rear-view mirror.

One player unsuccessfully tried to score the plate YESDADDY, to no avail.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.

He said guidelines on what plate combinations are restricted can be found on the DMV website: https://dmv.ny.gov/learn-about-personalized-plates. Approximately 50,000 personalized and custom plates are sold per year, O’Brien said.
