Ft. Worth, TX (February 9, 2015) — The DreamVision Company, a Fort Worth-based privately owned entertainment and media enterprise, today announced plans for two multi-billion dollar theme parks and the addition of executive Dave Goodman as president of DreamVision Theme Parks and Resorts. DreamVision CEO Rick Silanskas says the parks are being developed in partnership with Bryan Robinson, CEO, Provident Global Capital, LLC.
“We are very excited about our partnership with DreamVision and their team of proven industry leaders. Even more compelling is how DreamVision aligns with Provident Global Capital’s core values and our mission of investing in companies that have a positive impact on society,” said Robinson.
Located in Fort Worth’s Metroplex region and slated to open in 2020, DreamVision Mountain/DreamScape, Texas will transport guests through multiple themed lands and attractions. Rising up in the center of the park will be the iconic DreamVision Mountain, a towering winter wonderland and one of the largest indoor winter snow experiences in the world, featuring winter sports like skiing, snowboarding and bobsledding. The realistic winter landscape, inspired by the artwork of Thomas Kinkade, will be created by technology developed by Malcolm Clulow, the foremost expert in indoor snowmaking. Themed lands, including Dreamscape Tinsel Town, Nadia’s Storybook Land and Dreamscape Metropolis, will surround DreamVision Mountain, each offering unique attractions, rides and adventures.
Plans for a second theme park in Muscle Shoals, Alabama will be announced February 11 at an 11 a.m. CST press conference at the Marriott Shoals Hotel.
According to Rick Silanskas, the company has already begun pre-development on the parks. “Although they are being built simultaneously, each has separate themes, rides and attractions that embody the DreamVision family brand,” he said.
Since 2002, Silanskas, a producer, musician and composer, who has created award winning work for the motion picture, television and animation industries, has assembled a team of top entertainment industry professionals, among them chief creative officer Ron Logan, previously executive vice president and executive producer for Walt Disney Entertainment and the force behind the Broadway production of “Beauty and the Beast,” and president Vince Silanskas, a former Walt Disney World executive.
DreamVision has added Dave Goodman, a longtime entertainment executive, to head up the theme park division. Goodman is a former vice president of entertainment and executive producer at Disneyland Resort and has held executive level positions at Walt Disney Special Events Group and Busch Entertainment Corporation.
“We are thrilled to have Dave take charge of the theme park division,” Silanskas said. “With his expertise, DreamVision has the best team to launch these two family-oriented theme parks. Both parks will include golf courses, water parks, hotels, concert venues, retail and more.”
Pioneering a new breed of family entertainment, DreamVision also announced an extensive partnership with The Thomas Kinkade Company; a music division and label called DREAMVISION MUSIC; a CGI film “NADIA” (in production); and the Broadway adaption of “NADIA.”
