    Visited Vidanta and received park update - Jan 2019

    I was at Vidanta earlier this week (Jan 2019) and went up to 9th floor of Grand Bliss, overlooking the new park and received an update on construction.

    1st of all, I told Vidanta staff they were awful at communication and park goers who are interested in visiting are making up their own messaging about the park. It appears to me as if funding is constrained (I had heard some interesting rumors about original park ownership & funding having come from certain, ah....questionable sources, not rumors I chose to inquire about, but construction is indeed proceeding

    1st: the original park architect and Vidanta have (supposedly amicably) parted ways. A new architect has been hired and the park is progressing from what I saw. Both Phase 1, hotels, cirque acrobatics and rides and Phase 2, water park, are under construction. There are 4+ construction canes erecting hotels (typical Puerto Vallarta concrete/block construction) and access roads and various hydrologic and civil construction projects are under way.

    2nd: Phase 1 construction is scheduled for completion Nov 2020; not sure of Phase 2 and beyond.

    3rd: there will be two levels of park accommodations: a normal hotel style in studio, 1 and 3 bedrooms (with convertible coaches, which, if Sea Garden is any indication are quite comfortable) and an exclusive, ultra expensive, luxury style (I have rights for 10 weeks in 1BR normal style along with guaranteed park admission every day through that week), which I plan to rent on open market, once park opens

    4th: there will be a train from the center of the Vidanta property, Santuario (the central cocktail lounge/showroom) as well as a gondola from the Grand Luxe.

    5th: attendance each day will be capped at 6,000 people

    6th: overall park size is planned for 240 acres (I think the original plan was 26). If you know the Vedanta property, there is more than enough room (and water) to support the planned size. Also, the water park plans include a "lazy river".

    These are all plans as of today...so of course, anything can change.

  5. Just returned, there seem to be about 4 hotel buildings roughed in, but not complete. There is a large earthen embankment going around the site.

    Saw them actively pouring concrete roadbed every time we drove by, and not by the entrance plaza.

    According to one of the Vidanta hotel managers, they have completed the underground utilities, so above ground progress will become more apparent.

    At my presentation last week I was told that their would be a Cirque show and a Cirque Academy at the site. An ex-Disney engineer now in charge of the design side. From the limited view driving past the site I could see a massive amount of earthworks had been done. Construction of access roads and gatehouses were going on.

  7. They told me that Cirque du Soleil is involved in the project. They completely changed the configuration of the park.

    Thank you so much for the update. Was there mention of Cirque's ongoing participation and which phase they may control.

  9. I just came from a high level presentation and I had the opportunity to visit the construction site. There’s a lot of people working there 24 hours a day. There’s big improvement. All the buildings in a row that you see on the satellite map are the Hotel Celebration. The others are the Kingdom of the Sun and Cascade. They are supposed to open the first phase in 18 months and the Nocturne Forest in 2022. They would like to open it in December 2019 but I personally think that it's going to be later. They also want to build a gondola that will bring the members directly to the park.
