Developers are about to break ground on a new amusement park outside of Columbus, Ohio.
“Planet Oasis is located in Ohio because it's the center of the universe,” the park's president, David Glimcher.
Ohio is already home to theme-park-fan-favorite Cedar Point, as well as Kings Island, outside of Cincinnati. The two amusement parks are some of the most popular in the country, attracting 3.6 million and 3.5 million visitors in 2017, respectively.
Planet Oasis will have a wide range of activities, including classic amusement park attractions like roller coasters, rock walls, virtual reality, and a ferris wheel. There will also be sand beaches, snowboarding, BMX racing, skydiving, a salt water lake, retail outlets, a Medieval Times, and a butterfly museum.
Construction is set to begin in December, and parts of the park could open as soon as 2019.
