    Vidanta has finally replaced the vague and outdated "The Parks" page on their website with a still vague but new page about VidantaWorld (yes, they're formatting it as one word).

    All the Possibilities of the Impossible

    Over the last half century, we've been taught that theme parks are the pinnacle of family entertainment. But what if there was something bigger, better, and bolder waiting for you? A place that doesn't play by the rules of time or gravity, or even reality? What if you could take your vacation to the furthest reaches of your imagination? With VidantaWorld, you can.
    Instead of offering theme parks, VidantaWorld consists of three dream parks where anything is possible and nothing is what it seems. At the immersive dream park, you can explore ancient ruins or a mysterious and marvelous jungle. At the water dream park, you can dive into a thrilling oasis filled with the world's best water attractions. And at the nature dream park, you can explore a rainbow-colored world of wild enchantment. And the best part? The very first phase of VidantaWorld is coming soon!
    A new piece of concept art on the page shows a redesigned "boardwalk" area of the "Immersive Dream Park":



    Here's a comparison of the older concept art of that same area:



    This is the other piece of concept art that is shared, which may look familiar:



    This piece of concept art (both day and night version) has been shared multiple times before, here's a couple examples:





    Do you notice anything different between the new concept art and the two older examples? Yes, the "Castle Mountain" is missing. This could mean that A. The mountain is being redesigned and they have chosen not to share the new design, B. The mountain is cancelled, or C. The mountain is still planned but not until a later phase so they removed it from the concept art just for now.

    The removal of the mountain from the concept art is significant because it's supposed to be the theme park's "icon":



    My theory is that the newly shared "boardwalk" concept art is phase 1 and will be built relatively soon so VidantaWorld can be considered “open”. The circular building is the Cirque du Soleil theater so whatever deal that Vidanta has with Cirque du Soleil can be fulfilled sooner than later. I think this phase 1 boardwalk area will have no admission so it’ll be free. Because the SkyDream gondola already has a station there in operation it makes sense for at least something to open there as soon as possible. I think that everything else will be a future phase which may or may not get built.

    The official Vidanta World website has been updated with new details and it seems there may have been another partial rebrand...

    There’s a place where imagination has no limitations and the impossible is plausible. Vidanta is rewriting the future of entertainment to bring you an inspired universe unlike anything ever before seen. Introducing VidantaWorld, located in Vallarta, Mexico. Get ready to dream big and vacation bigger.
    It's inconsistent but Vidanta World may now be written as one word, VidantaWorld, just like SeaWorld. Also, VidantaWorld might be replacing "The Parks" as the all encompassing name.

    Instead of traditional theme parks, VidantaWorld offers three groundbreaking dream parks.
    Instead of the theme park itself being called Vidanta World, it is currently referred to as "Immersive Dream Park" and is described as "An imagination-fueled realm of the unreal". Next the website shows the second gate which is referred to as "Water Dream Park" and is described as "The World's Most Exciting Aquatic Experience". Lastly the website shows "Nature Dream Park" which is described as "A magnificent celebration of the outdoors".

    Immersive Dream Park:



    Water Dream Park:



    Nature Dream Park:



    The website doesn't let you click on each of the three parks yet but the Spanish version of the website has nonfunctional "Learn More" buttons there already which probably means that more information will be available on the website soon.

    Cirque du Soleil Set Design: Mexico Theme Park Concept Art by Legacy Entertainment

    During the early development phases of Vidanta World, one concept explored was that of a nighttime-only theme park. This approach was driven by the lack of nighttime experiences available in the Puerto Vallarta market. In addition to highly-immersive shopping and dining experiences, this 'Village of the Moon' would have also been home to rides and Cirque du Soleil immersive theater experiences.

  5. -- One last comment. I did take the gondola, and I can report that there is a lot more construction activity there than any pictures or videos I have seen here and elsewhere in the past. The person I was with also said that a lot of the infrastructure for the park is underground (like Disney) and is in an advanced state of development and already buried. He said that visible development will be happening quickly now, and he also told me that a boardwalk area in the park will open by November. This was allegedly from a briefing done for staff. I have heard dates come and go, but this did sound specific enough to be believable.

I should have brought a drone with me and sent you the files. Thanks again, and as I said, I could be wrong and this be the end of a wooden rollercoaster. Frankly, that would make me more excited than a bridge for golf carts!
    Thank you and yes if ever go back to Vidanta and bring your drone we would love to see photos of the construction progress and to any one who is reading this post if you are at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta we would love to see your photos of Vidanta World whether they taken from a drone, SkyDream, or the ground.

    Also there are plans for a new or widened golf bridge connecting the new estates to the existing resort

    Thank you Douglas!

    Thank you I'm glad that you appreciate my posts! At the beginning of the video I thought it was showing Vidanta World's SkyDream station on the back right and the back left was the theme park so the person filming the video was standing north east of the newly built tennis courts on the north side of the Ameca River. Where are you thinking the video was taken from and which SkyDream station is that in the video?
