Planet Oasis is building what will be considered a new stadium and attraction dedicated to esports and is estimated to be a 30,000 square-foot multi-level, multi-use arena that will be home to the one of the fastest growing sectors in the sports entertainment world.

Planet Oasis planned elements include artificial intelligence, 8k projection and virtual reality which will all be showcased in the attraction.

From retro gaming consoles and a variety of food and beverage concepts we will leave no stone unturned for the customer experience that will be showcased in the project.

Programming of the facility and plans are confidential for now, however, the emerging industry of esports and millennial gaming are looking towards Planet Oasis to be “best in class” per Jeffrey Schoonover, Principal of Peninsula Lifestyle Capital PLLC who is spearheading the project for Planet Oasis and sits on the development board for Blue Horseshoe Ventures and the overall Planet Oasis development.

Schoonover stated “when the community sees what we have planned and the entertainment resources involved, well let’s just say esports will make Columbus a destination for fans, millennials, gamers and their families. This is truly the next generation in emerging sports and entertainment. We are creating an attraction that offers a unique experience, but most importantly, we want to create a home for the gaming community in the Midwest.”

The multilevel arena is designed to host every form of competitive gaming and features a competition stage, giant LED video wall, state of the art seating, UltraStar Gamer Caves PC and console gaming stations, and a network TV-quality production studio.

Highlights

• 50-foot LED video wall

• Luxury VIP Lounges

• Broadcast Center & Production Studio

• Gamer-Inspired menu

• Esports Exhibition Show Matches

• Vintage Video Game Cocktail Bar

“We are very excited to bring an esports partnership, one of the fastest growing entertainment experiences in the world to Planet Oasis Ohio. We are fortunate to have Jeff Schoonover’s team choose Planet Oasis for a strategic esports location. Jeff’s experience as an owner of another esports team, brings us years ahead of any competition.” — David Glimcher
