Circuit of the Americas Adding Amusement Park to Austin Property

Circuit of the Americas (COTA) won’t just be for car racing enthusiasts. It’s expanding to build an amusement park featuring more than two dozen rides on the property at turns 19 and 20.

COTA’s Matt Hughey has more, “There will be something for everyone. We are looking forward to inviting visitors from all over the world to enjoy the world’s most modern thrill rides and we are excited about this addition to our campus.”

The amusement park will take up more than 20 acres and will feature kid’s rides, family rides and rides for thrill-seekers. The name of the amusement park will be COTALAND and will have a tilt coaster, which will be the first of its kind in America. Another coaster that will be offered is the Palindrome, which is a shuttle coaster that takes riders up 90 degrees and goes over COTA Boulevard.

COTA currently features Formula One, karting, camping and a large amphitheater.
