Previously, Tomorrowland collaborated with Momentum Leisure on a roller coaster at Belgian amusement park Plopsaland De Panne.
Tomorrowland‘s high production values often draw comparisons to an amusement park. It comes as little surprise, then, that the Boom, Belgium festival’s organizers are in talks with Dutch investor Momentum Leisure to launch a theme park attraction.
According to Dutch amusement park news site Looopings, spokespeople on behalf of Momentum have said that plans for the partnership are not yet final. Outdated concept drawings by an illustrator named Kurt Heerman have nonetheless started to circulate online. Among other things, they depict a giant clock, waterslides coursing alongside ornately decorated walkways, and the exterior of a large, futuristic structure.
A spokesperson on behalf of Tomorrowland confirmed in an email to EDM Identity that the promoter is working on “a new attraction in a recreation park.” They added that “a swimming paradise is among the possibilities” but clarified that “the designs that have been leaked are the old designs.”
This wouldn’t be the first time Tomorrowland has worked together with Momentum Leisure. In 2021, the two teamed up on a spinning attraction called The Ride to Happiness that appeared in a Belgian amusement park called Plopsaland De Panne. A section of Holiday Park in Germany will also include a Tomorrowland-themed section when it is completed in a few years.
When Tomorrowland inaugurated in 2005, it was a far cry from the larger-than-life gathering EDM fans have come to know and love. Drawing only 10,000 attendees to a small handful of stages, it billed artists like Armin van Buuren, Technoboy and Coone. Nearly two decades later, it has expanded to 600 artists across 14 stages over two weekends, routinely attracting more than 400,000 revelers.
Momentum Leisure holds a dominant share in the Polish theme parks Majaland Kownaty and Majaland Warsaw, according to Looopings. Next year, it plans to add a third park called Majaland Gdansk in partnership with former majority shareholder The Plopsa Group.
Tomorrowland will also launch an immersive experience called “The Great Library of Tomorrow” in Barcelona later in 2023.
