  • The Barbie Beach House, featuring a Dream Closet Experience and a rooftop where visitors can have pink drinks

The first ever Mattel brand park is also appealing to fans of Master of the Universe fans by building a life-size Castle Grayskull. The castle will be a "state-of-the-art" laser tag arena, according to Mattel officials.

"Our unique indoor/outdoor design keeps your family cool and comfortable on even the hottest Arizona day with acres of air-conditioned space for your enjoyment, our stunningly themed party zones set the stage for the ultimate Barbie, Hot Wheels, or Thomas & Friends birthday party experience," reads a statement from the park's website.

The theme park will be part of VAI Resort, which advertises to be the largest resort in Arizona.
