Giant Amusement Park Coming To an Area Near Michigan
A new amusement park is set to begin construction soon. This $2 billion park will be in Columbus, Ohio and it's going to be huge. According to the Detroit Free Press, the park will be four times the size of Disneyland in California.
The park will be called Planet Oasis, and they plan to have something for everyone. Planet Oasis will feature everything from roller coasters, to indoor skydiving, to indoor surfing, retail outlets, sand beaches, and butterfly house and more.
For a size comparison, Cedar Point is just over 350 acres of summer fun. This new park, just 3 hours and 45 minutes from Flint will be roughly the same size.
Why choose Columbus Ohio when Cedar Point is already close by? According to this YouTube video, it's because its the center of the universe and within 6 driving hours of 100 million people.
Construction is set to begin on the amusement park of the future in December. The plans call for a summer 2019 opening.
