Yesterday was a milestone day for the Goddard Group, as Founder & Chairman, Gary Goddard, announced in Riviera Maya, Mexico, an incredible project - the world's first CIRQUE DU SOLEIL Theme Park Resort. According to Gary, this unprecedented collaboration between Cirque du Soleil, the Goddard Group, and Grupo Vidanta will be unlike anything else the world has seen before.
“Grupo Vidanta is offering us an amazing sandbox in which we can unleash our creativity,” said Guy Laliberté, founder of Cirque du Soleil. “Both our groups strive for perfection. Grupo Vidanta is passionate and cares for the environment. We set ourselves the challenge of creating something unlike anything the world has seen before.”
Below, two more renderings showing areas of this Cirque du Soleil theme park.
The next artwork below is from the great John Horny.
The Goddard Group’s Facebook said to Screamscape asking if there will be rides at the park: “While there will be rides every single one will be a new creative experience never seen at any other park. And while we can't get into too much detail at this point, we can say that the "star" attractions here are completely new experiences that don't yet exist in the world.”
According to Screamscape "if you look at the artwork above at the various themed areas and spot you'll see what appear to be a number of small rides and attractions spread throughout the beautiful scenery, including a ferris wheel, train, and what had at first looked like a white coaster on the right side, is actually just waterslides for the waterpark next to the wave pool.
Lance also think that the project might include "some pretty big ideas planned for this park that could prove to be game changers for the future of the themed entertainment industry".
For sure, we'll keep an eye on this project!
