If you just can’t get enough of Cirque du Soleil’s amazingly creative and visually stunning performances, then you’d be happy to know that it’s gearing up to open its first theme park in Mexico! While first announced back in 2014, it will probably be another couple of years before we see the park come to life.

While there are very few details released about the park, here’s what we know so far:


At Vidanta resort in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.

Slated to open sometime in 2018.

What will it look like?

While plans about the park have been kept under wraps, we’re pretty sure the park will be designed to look like the Garden of Eden filtered through a Tim Burton hallucination: In other words, a magical realm with lots of greenery and water works, with some of the architecture paying tribute to Mayan motifs.

What’s there to experience?

While walking through the park you could experience a constant, interactive Cirque performance, which would include a lot of embedded performers along the way. Initial plans have allotted for two magical lands, the Village of the Sun and the Village of the Moon, as well as an outdoor evening show that could host as many as 3,000 to 5,000 spectators. The park may also include a water park and nature park elements, and there’ll also be a hydrotherapy circuit for adults.

This is all the info that’s available right now, so we’re not sure about how much tickets will cost and what themed rides will be added to the park, but we sure are excited about what’s to come!
