A new $2 billion theme park is being built in Ohio that developers say will be bigger than Disneyland. Best yet the Columbus, Ohio Park is only a 6 hour car ride away.
Some of the attractions planned for “Planet Oasis” include indoor skydiving, an indoor water park, and a saltwater lake and beach.
The keyword for Planet Oasis appears to be “experiential”, with CEO David Glimcher promising “experential bars, experiential restaurants, experiential entertainment”. Construction on the 350-acre facility begins in December.
