Xero Gravity Action Sports LLC announced this week plans to build a $309 million resort in Osceola County that will feature extreme sports-related amenities to guests.
The project would be anchored by a 250-room Hyatt-flag hotel featuring a rooftop pool/bar, a 2,000-seat amphitheater, swim-up bars and grotto, restaurants, and more. The International Action Sports Hall of Fame would also be located on the grounds.
According to the press release, the extreme sports resort would offer:
- a 14-story ski and snowboard mountain with nine snow tubing lanes
- a 5 acre wave pool offering surfing with up to 10-foot waves and boogie boarding
- a rapid river area
- two competition-level waterslides by Whitewateer
- a 25,000-sq-ft indoor/outdoor skateboard park
- a USA-BMX sanctioned race track
- two skydiving pods
- free fall jump zones up to 120-feet
- a 20,000-sq-ft indoor dodge ball trampoline arena
- a 140-ft tall rock climbing area
- a zip-lining course
- a snowball fight arena
The complex would sit on 75 acres of land owned by Central Florida Investments Inc., the parent company of Westgate Resorts, near the intersection of U.S. Highway 192 and State Road 535, in Kissimmee.
“Our company is creating the next step in the tourism sports industry,” said Larry Walshaw, CEO and founder of the company, in the press release. “We are developing a one-of-a-kind sports and entertainment resort which provides unique hands-on experiences. We will be hosting televised pro and amateur competitions, think X-games, with sports shows and clinics, and we will have daily competitions at all venues for visitors who like to compete.”
If Osceola County officials approve the project, it could open as early as 2018, and would provide over 1,000 jobs to the area.
