DELAWARE COUNTY, OHIO — Blue Horseshoe Ventures has unveiled plans to build a $10 million stadium dedicated to e-sports at its Planet Oasis project in Delaware County.

The new facility will be one element of the $2 billion Planet Oasis project, which Blue Horseshoe first announced in July. At full build-out, Planet Oasis will span 350 acres and will feature attractions such as indoor skydiving, electric go-karts, virtual golf, bowling, laser tag, indoor waterpark, at least 15 hotels, more than 75 restaurants, a health and wellness resort and a conference center.
