The announcement comes on the heels of completing a month-and-a-half-long search via the attraction’s Facebook page, which received more than 120 submissions from LEGO® fans vying for a coveted spot on the panel.

The children selected to the panel are: Mark and Thomas Gibney of Scarsdale, NY; Jack Pennachio of Eastchester, NY; Adam Lupatkin of New Castle; Alex Luis of Tarrytown, NY; Belladona Rodriguez of Beacon, NY; Hunter Lapari of Clarkstown, NY; Jacob Brown of Montrose, NY; Maddie Miller of New City, NY; Brian Kinaham of West Redding, CT; Samantha Murabito of Larchmont, NY; and Jullian Sweeney of Bronx, NY.
