Mattel-branded theme park

GLENDALE, Ariz. (CNN) — A Mattel-branded theme park is coming to Glendale, Arizona.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held Thursday. The park will feature a Hot Wheels-themed roller coaster and a “life-sized” Thomas the Tank Engine passenger train.

The theme park is being developed alongside a massive water park called “Crystal Lagoons Island Resort.” The project is expected to open sometime next year.
