Planet Oasis, which plans to bring 15,000 jobs outside of Columbus, is slated to open its first stage in 2019.



Developers have announced plans for a $2 billion entertainment park outside of Columbus, Ohio.

Planet Oasis is billed as the “ultimate entertainment experience,” developer David Glimcher said Thursday.

Representatives said the massive park includes indoor skydiving, an indoor water park, several restaurants, a hotel and a conference center. In a presentation posted to YouTube, Glimcher also listed the following park features:

  • A rollercoaster
  • Skate park
  • Indoor surf park
  • BMX bike park
  • Indoor climbing walls
  • A Medieval experience
  • Virtual reality games
  • E-Sports arena
  • A butterfly museum
  • 25-story skywheel
  • Indoor electric gocarts
  • Bowling
  • Laser Tag
  • Virtual Golf
  • A 20-acre saltwater lake with sand beaches

Glimcher said accommodations at the park will be available “at all price points.”

Planet Oasis will be located in Delaware County, about a two-hour drive up Interstate 71 from Cincinnati.

It’s expected to be 350 acres, that’s 265 acres larger than Disneyland in California.

Glimcher said Ohio was picked for the project because of its accessible location to visitors from multiple states. The park will be a 5-6 hour drive for more than 100 million people, he said.
