Construction is likely to begin this year on an indoor waterpark and VR entertainment facility at Johnson Controls Hall of Fame Village in Canton, Ohio.
Dubbed the Johnson Controls Hall of Fame Experience, it is understood to be one of the most costly components of the $700 million ‘smart city’.
Details of the 300,000-square-foot facility are currently sketchy, although the designers have been confirmed as Immersive Artistry.
The football-themed waterpark is expected to be along the same lines as existing popular parks in the US, featuring attractions such as slides and a lazy river.
The Johnson Controls Hall of Fame Village is reportedly the biggest project currently under construction in Ohio. Estimates suggest it could impact the local economy to the tune of around $15.3 billion in its first 25 years of operation.
The project is slated for completion in 2019 in time for the NFL’s 100th season and subsequent centennial celebration in 2020.
