~ An ad for the theme park

The park was built in Irvine, California, and is themed around the worlds of Blizzard Entertainment.[2]

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The map starts off with a payload in the Warcraft staging area. The defenders start in the Heroes of the Storm Arcade, while attackers spawn in the Hearthstone Tavern. The attackers have to push the payload along into the StarCraft section of the theme park, which is a circular plaza with an upper level of bridges and walkways. Here, as with the Warcraft section, taking the high ground is the key to victory. The payload enters the Diablo area last, which consists of numerous smashable barrels.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The map is an in-universe representation of Blizzard Entertainment's IPs. The concept can be seen as a parody/homage of Disney World and other similar theme parks.
  • The idea for the map came from BlizzCon 2015, when Chris Metzen discussed the idea of a Blizzard-themed park. The idea for a map based on such an idea was taken up by the developers.[2]
