Cirque du Soleil is venturing into the theme-park business. The prestigious Montreal-based circus is partnering with resort developer Grupo Vidanta to build and operate a first-of-its-kind immersive theme park experience in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.
“We have been dreaming together with Cirque du Soleil to create new categories of entertainment for Mexico and the world for more than five years,” said Grupo Vidanta founder Daniel Chávez Morán. “The demand we’ve seen for JOYÀ before even launching makes us confident future projects will be met with success. When guests see what we are able to build in Nuevo Vallarta, they will know we are now in the position to build our dreams.”
The park will feature three in-park resort hotels, each themed, as well as a full Cirque du Soleil show and may include water park and nature park elements and will feature an outdoor evening show accommodating as many as 3,000 to 5,000 spectators. Construction is expected to be complete in 2018.
