Disney Designer Plans North Carolina Theme Park…

The man who helped create Disneyland in California, Disney World’s Epcot, and even parts of Universal Studios is planning to build a theme park just outside of Chapel Hill.

Former Disney Imagineer Bob Baranick spent his career imagining mountains with water slides, railroads that go through caves of crystals, and bringing beloved characters to life.

“The thing I was most passionate about was the Indiana Jones ride,” Baranick said. “I worked with George Lucas and everybody on that.”

“We’re not building Disney World, but we’re putting that kind of effort and quality into it,” Baranick explained.

Baranick bought 21 acres in Alamance County, just outside of Chapel Hill.

“It’s not Carowinds, no! Nope,” he exclaimed. “The attractions are all charming little intimate things, like train rides and haunted houses and tree houses.”

He described the park as a VIP experience because it’s intimate, small, and nestled in the woods. It will cost about $25 for adults and less than that for children’s admission.
