How long to build a park?

I was thinking, all the amusement parks we have, how long does it take for a company to build a nice park? With landscaping and the whole thing?

I had wanted to build a park and it takes quite a bit before you even break ground. You have to have a feasibility study done in order to find out if your park will be successful where you are planning to locate it. A feasibility study also decides how large the park would to be in relation to the area's population.

To build a park from scratch, it would take about two to three years of conceptual planning, design, and construction before a park is opened.

I saw on TV that IoA took ten years. Is this true?

The best parks can't be built quickly. They have to naturally age and grow. No amount of theming can replace a century of timeless fun. It is easy to build a new park but impossible to build an old one.

IOA took 5 years to build and maybe a couple years in planning.
