Good News Notes:
“A new theme Park is currently in development, expecting to break ground in 2023 and be fully completed by 2025, and it has plans to offer free admission to most of its Guests.
Spirit of Adventure Park will be a new theme Park located in Wentzville, Missouri, 40 minutes west of St. Louis. The project is being developed to make the theme Park the most innovative and fully accessible in the world.
The idea for this theme Park sparked when Jamie Vann, president and co-founder of the project, talked about a spring break trip to Walt Disney World with one of her friends. Her friend commented that was something she wouldn’t be able to do with her family because of the challenges she faced with her daughter, who has down syndrome.
The Park will be targeted at those with Down syndrome, autism, PTSD, or anyone battling a life-threatening illness, as well as the hearing, visually, mentally, and physically impaired, and it will join Morgan’s Wonderland, in San Antonio, Texas, as the only ultra-accessible amusement Parks in the world.
Spirit of Adventure Park will provide a similar feel to Walt Disney World’s EPCOT. Vann said the Park would merge entertainment and education.
The theme park will not have roller coasters, but it will offer Guests experiences on a carousel, Ferris wheel, barn, sensory and edible gardens, and a greenhouse designed by an undisclosed former Disney Cast Member. It will also feature lifted garden beds, which would give those with disabilities a chance to do something like picking a fruit or vegetable, which they may have never had the opportunity to do before….”
