A press conference was held today by DreamVision announcing a few more details about the rumored theme parks coming to Texas and Alabama.
The company announced that the parks will be built in Fort Worth’s Metroplex region and Alabama and will be open in 2020.
The centerpiece of the $3.5-billion, 5,000-acre theme park DreamVision park will be the DreamVision Mountain. The mountain will be home to one of the largest indoor winter snow experiences in the world featuring skiing, bobsledding and snowboarding. DreamVision Mountain will be surrounded by themed areas such as Dreamscape Tinsel Town, Nadia’s Storybook Land and Dreamscape Metropolis.
Plans for the second theme park in Alabama were scarce but more details will be announced on February 11 during a press conference.
Both parks are being built simultaneously and pre-development has already begun according to Rick Silanskas. “Although they are being built simultaneously, each has separate themes, rides and attractions that embody the DreamVision family brand,” he said.
DreamVision has added Dave Goodman, a longtime entertainment executive, to head up the theme park division. Goodman is a former vice president of entertainment and executive producer at Disneyland Resort and has held executive level positions at Walt Disney Special Events Group and Busch Entertainment Corporation.
Will these parks happen? Many are questioning that they will due to Dreamvision’s past problems before relocating to Texas.
Will Dreamvision pull through this time and deliver? No one knows for sure.
