(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) The woke Disney that’s been pushing its leftist politics for a very long time started to lose customers, while the pro-America theme park that is going to open in Midwest is expected to gain customers.
The American Heartland Theme Park and Resort, the 1,000-acre development with an estimated $2 billion price tag, is scheduled to open in 2026 in the northeastern Oklahoma city of Vinita, a Thursday news release from the Missouri-based Mansion Entertainment Group reported.
Mansion Entertainment stated that the park will have an Americana-themed environment with “a variety of entertaining rides, live shows, family attractions, waterways as well as restaurant-quality food and beverage offerings.”
The park will also include rides and shows in “six distinctly American lands:” the Great Plains, Bayou Bay, Big Timber Falls, Stony Point Harbor, Liberty Village and Electropolis, the news release stated.
Aside from the amusement park, American Heartland will also have a 300-room hotel, an indoor water park, an adjacent 320-acre RV park and a 300-cabin campground named Three Ponies.
Mansion Entertainment also added that the park’s design team includes more than 20 Disney Parks builders and Walt Disney Imagineers. The group also hired design firms that have been used in the past by other major amusement parks, including Six Flags and Universal Studios.
Developers expect the park to attract two million visitors per year since its opening, Kristy Adams, a sales and marketing executive with Mansion Entertainment, said.
In addition to that, the park will add at least 4,000 jobs and provide a boost to the state’s tourism economy, state Sen. Micheal Bergstrom, R-Okla., said.
“We are thrilled to make Oklahoma the home of American Heartland Theme Park and Resort,” American Heartland CEO Larry Wilhite said. “At the crossroads of the heartland, Oklahoma is an attractive location for a family entertainment destination.”
