Well, this is interesting. There are apparently wheels in motion that will bring an amusement park meant for everyone to Wentzville, Missouri.

I saw this reported by Fox 2 St. Louis. It's called the Spirit of Discovery Park and it's designed to be a very special place. The word is that the group behind this effort have obtained the land they want, but they're not divulging the location yet. However, there is a concept video that shows a hypothetical location just off of the highway near Wentzville.

The official website for Spirit of Discovery says it's a "theme park for children, adults, and our veterans, with mental, physical, or intellectual disabilities". Their vision appears to be a park where everyone can come without having a friend or family member who suffers from a disability from being left out. That means those with "Downs syndrome, Autism, PTSD, any person battling a life threatening disease and the hearing, visually, mentally and physically impaired" according to their website.

The total cost will likely top $100 million dollars and fundraising appears to be underway now. There's no estimate on when the park will be built and open, but it's officially a project now.

It certainly is an interesting and inspiring concept. How long it will take to become reality is anyone's guess, but you can stay up-to-date on their effort through their official Spirit of Discovery Park website.
