America celebrating theme park planned

America will get a new and massive theme park, located in the heartland and celebrating America, in three years.

Celebrate America with a new park

The Mansion Entertainment Group last week announced its latest project: a new theme park encumpassing 125 acres near Vinita, Oklahoma. The park is part of a 1,000-acre $2 billion development project in Craig County in northeastern Oklahoma. Mansion Entertainment will also build a 320-acre RV park and campground that they will call Three Ponies. According to Blaze Media, the Three Ponies campground will open first, in the spring of 2025. Then the American Heartland Theme Park and Resort will open in the fall of 2026. Other parts of the project include a 300-room hotel and an indoor water park.

The scope and schedule for this project have astounded many. Steve Hedrick, executive producer for design, told The Tulsa World that a project like this normally takes seven years. But Gene Bicknell, the financial backer and chief creative officer, insisted that the project happen faster than that. Hedrick promises to have it done in half the time.

American Heartland will feature six major theme areas: Great Plains, Bayou Bay, Big Timber Falls, Stony Point Harbor, Liberty Village, and Electropolis. Each area highlights a unique feature of America, its history, and its geography.

Reporters compare American Heartland to The Magic Kingdom, part of Walt Disney World in Orlando, and Disneyland in Anaheim, California. In fact the developers have hired away more than twenty Disney Park builders and Walt Disney Imagineers. This could be the working-out of Walt Disney Company getting woke – and going broke.


Meet the new – recalling the old

The developers – and local State legislators – speak of celebrating America and building a family-friendly place. USA Today suggests it could become the “anchor tourist destination” of the Midwest. The park will sit on Route 66, east of Grand Lake, already an attractive destination in its own right.
