Real stories from real BIM people
Star Wars Theme Park under construction with BIM
Company: Walt Disney Parks and Resorts
Location: Anaheim, United States
Year of the project: 2016
Budget: 1BN USD $
Most of the details on the Star Wars theme park, currently being built in Disneyland and Walt Disney World, have been kept under secret. The construction started in 2016, but it took two years for the company to release a few images of what will be known as Batuu.
The complex is located in the city of Anaheim, California and comprises 14 acres. It will replace older attractions like Big Thunder Ranch in California and Streets of America in Florida. Once it is completed, the new lands will include rides based on spacecraft, droids and movie locations. The exterior architecture has been inspired by cities like Morocco and Istanbul.
Both parks will be finished by 2019 and will have an estimated cost of USD $1BN. According to Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, the park will offer the most experimental concept ever done before. Will the park be ready for the world premiere of Star Wars Ep. 9?! We shall see.
