Not really. Just a pie in the sky idea trolling for investors. They did a big kickoff event in downtown Fort Worth in June of last year and not a word has been heard from them since.

DreamVision announced the park when they announced that they were opening a new office in Fort Worth. Their name says it all, they have a "Dream" and a "vision". As near as I can tell, however, they don't even anything else. They don't even have an idea where such a park would be built. No locations were discussed other than this area.

I think even in their dreams, this park is 10 to 20 years away.

I did a little digging around they haven't even updated their website in over a year. I think the dream may have died before it got started.

yeah, I just looked at their website and for a media company that thinks they are the next Pixar it's really bad...I finally found a clip of their work on Vimeo from 3 years ago and the only thing on their youtube page is of the Ft. Worth fireworks show and one they did in FL...so yeah, I don't think company could even run a carnival, let alone build a theme park

I don't subscribe to Attractions magazine but know people who do and it's usually on the shelves around town so I will try to find a copy this weekend to read the full article

These things take years to plan and lots of contracts are involved so something like this could be years away but I like the idea. If it gets built it can bring a big boost to the area and lots of jobs created I hope they are getting this project planned.

Yeah, that's all true, but this one isn't happening.

Yep, even the website is very vague. They should be proudly promoting like P. T. Barnum, not like a city promoting a swimming pool. Any investors/lenders would want to see a business plan as well as a proven track record before turning over a single dime.

I saw Bud Kennedy wrote a piece on this place over the weekend

http://www.star-telegram.com/opinion...le9367799.html

and they released a video that walks through the different areas of the park

http://youtu.be/8bv0puiOP2Q

still not buying it though...but I did notice that in their Candyland area they threw the Wonka's name on one of the buildings...that's just asking for trouble unless they already secured those rights
