Developers have announced plans for a $2b entertainment park outside of Columbus, Ohio. The new destination, which is being billed as the “ultimate entertainment experience” according to developer David Glimcher, is also touted to dwarf Disney Land by 265 acres, measuring in at a total of 350 acres.
Planet Oasis will include indoor skydiving, an indoor water park, restaurants, specialty retail shops, a hotel and a conference center, a rollercoaster, skate park, indoor surf park, BMX bike park, indoor climbing walls, a Medieval Times-esque experience, virtual reality games, E-Sports arena, a butterfly museum, 25-story skywheel, indoor electric go-karts, a bowling alley, laser tag, virtual golf and a 20-acre saltwater lake with sand beaches – phew!
Glimcher also commented that Planet Oasis will be accessible for “all price points”, and the centre is expected to bring 15,000 jobs to Ohio with the first phase of construction to begin in December.
