Tyra Banks is ready to bring her supermodel experience to the world!
Banks will be the first person to create a supermodel-themed amusement park and the name ‘ModelLand’ fits it’s purpose perfectly.
During an interview with Variety, the business-savvy model/host/entrepreneur made the big announcement that the park will open in late 2019 in Santa Monica, California.
It won’t stop here though, Banks eventually wants to open more parks globally after the flagship launch.
Banks went on to talk about what inspired her creative idea saying “I’ve always been insanely inspired by attractions like Disneyland and Universal Studios and have wanted to bring that spirit of adventure and storytelling to the world of modeling,” she added “But not the exclusive modeling industry. I’m talking about modeling for the masses.”
Not to mention, according to Banks, this idea didn’t just pop up out the blue. She has been working and planning on this concept of Modelland for 10 years. The Top Model CEO always saw this amusement park as a place where visitors can be free and embrace who they are.
“All types of beauty — men and women, young and older — are invited to transform into the dream version of themselves,” she said. “When people leave ModelLand, we want them to feel overjoyed and empowered.”
Banks isn’t new to success, we all know that she has conquered a wide set of business ventures including America’s Next Top Model, a singing/acting/writing career, a daytime talk show, and more.
It is safe to say that Banks knows what she’s doing when it comes to running a business and making money, therefore we are all eager for the opening of ‘Modelland!’
