Planet Oasis, a 2 billion dollar amusement park twice the size of Disneyland, is coming to Columbus, Ohio.
Although it will feature the traditional attractions like food, rides and shopping, Planet Oasis will have a massive esports arena on site.
The Call of Duty World League is currently taking place at the MLG Arena, a 14,000 square foot complex in Columbus. That may soon change as the Planet Oasis Esports Arena will be 30,000 square feet.
The esports plans for this park do not stop at a building however, as Planet Oasis plans to have their own team and even their own esports league.
At this time, information is not known about what games their team will compete in or how the Planet Oasis league will be set up.
The owners of Planet Oasis may not know what direction their esports plans will go either, as it was a very small portion of their launch video. At one point, the video humorously cuts from esports to a butterfly exhibit.
Also of interest to gamers will be an area to experience VR and AR games.
The complete list of planned attractions is below.
The developers chose Ohio for the location of Planet Oasis for a the same reason Activison is holding the Call of Duty Championships there, over 100 million people live within a 6 hour drive and there are numerous college campuses nearby.
