Look at what we're getting in Utah. I'm so stoked. http://evermorepark.com/

A Victorian Adventure Park that transforms each season. I'm most excited about the Autumn when it transforms into "Ripper's Cove" which is not a haunted house, but an entire haunted city!

From the website:
Projected to open in 2015, Evermore is a forty-five acre “adventure park”, set in a magical Victorian England. Evermore’s event schedule consists of “Ripper’s Cove”, a Fall and Halloween season event, ”An Evermore Christmas” for the Holidays, and Evermore’s “Carnival of Wonders”, which will include a series of week long events, weekend celebrations, concerts and other activities all summer long!

I don't see the allure....is that the right word? They say in their video it's not kid oriented, so they're not exactly playing to the audience in that area. They don't seem to have lots of rides, so not much for the teenagers. You get to solve a puzzle, but if the "story" doesn't change, why would you go back and keep solving the same mystery. It sounds like a one and done kind of place. I live an hour away, so I'll check it out, but when they say they rival Disney, I think folks will come away disappointed the way the word Adventure is being tossed around. They look to have some cool props, so that might draw in the large number of home haunters in the area.

Scatterbrains, I did not get around to watching the video posted here yet, but, from the way that they talk at the website, there will be a different theme running each season, so the atmosphere will change. The place is meant more as interactive entertainment than a theme park with rides, although there will be a few scattered about. People go to Frankenmuth, an area here in Michigan, mainly for the Bavarian (German, basically) atmosphere and famous chicken repeatedly, despite the fact that it never truly changes (although there are special events held on occasion). For folks who live near Evermore, it may not be a park to repeatedly visit, but I could see it becoming quite a tourist draw. If they did mention rivaling Disney, I have to agree with you there, that it is not happening, with this being far more specialty-geared, as opposed to attracting a broad audience.
