Did you know there’s an abandoned theme park in Orlando?
We’re all familiar with Disney World, Universal Orlando, and SeaWorld, which are all operating at full swing. A year ago, AdventHealth bought the abandoned theme park Holy Land, and we’ve been waiting to see what will be done to the land. Now, there’s a big update as to what we can expect to take the theme park’s place.
The Holy Land Experience, which also conducted weekly church services, sought to recreate the city of Jerusalem during the 1st century. It was owned by the Trinity Broadcasting Network and closed in February 2020 after reporting a sharp decline in profits.
AdventHealth bought the 14-acre property in 2021 and has now filed paperwork with the city of Orlando to change the proposed project at 4655 and 4615 Vineland Road to a three-phase project, according to the Orlando Business Journal.
The first phase includes a one-story, 24-bed, 19,600-square-foot, freestanding emergency department with a helipad, but what the second and third phases would contain has not been disclosed. A potential parking garage has been mentioned, and the new plans call for all existing buildings on the property (the existing abandoned theme park) to be demolished.
Kari Vargas, CEO of AdventHealth Winter Garden and the west Orange and south Lake market told OBJ, “We continue to work through our planning and design process to determine how best to serve the health care needs of the Millenia area.”
AdventHealth is actually the official healthcare provider of Walt Disney World. In fact, they administered temperature checks at every park entrance when Disney World reopened. The company also offers health services to Disney World guests, including urgent care, doctor visits, prescription delivery, medical equipment rentals, and more.
