Welcome to Aerostat
Park, the home of Gigantica. We
are currently in the design phase of the facility. Take a look at our
preliminary artistic renditions. The following drawings show the general
scope of the project, facility layout and the roofing system. The facility
will be dynamic in its' abilities to entertain guests. The park is not
necessary for start up of operations. It is an additional oportunity.
is the permanent home of Gigantica and
the location of Helium restaurant. The park's patriotic Colorado flag
will welcome visitors from around the world. A haven for all who visit
to relax and enjoy with free parking and cold drinks in the restaurant.
Balloons have an aura of tranquility, the colors and fabric compliment
the flora of a park setting. Balloons are often called the "gentle giants"
due to their docile nature and omni presence. The mystical nature of
the gentle giant will draw folks who are looking for a different pace
will encourage exploration through its many unique features; a playground
for the children, built out of snow in the winter time, a history of
ballooning museum for students to visit, an amphitheatre for concerts
and lounging around, a restaurant for replenishing the body and catering
to parties, reflecting pools with gold fish and fountains, local sculptures
on display to tease the mind and a boutique for all the essentials.
Not a blade of grass uncut and not a guest without a smile. The culmination
of the two, a park and a balloon, will make for a first class facility,
five stars all the way. Although the park will be commercial, visiting
the park will be free to the public, only costing to ride in the balloon.
A couple of characters will rome the
park leaving footprints to lead the way. From the land, the sea and
the past, Giganticas mascots will be the biggest animals to have lived
on our planet. An Elephant named Pilotre, a whale named Rozie and a
t-rex named Aero. The mascots will teach about ballooning and be for
sale in the boutique for $19.99. Their footprints will be on the ground,
in the balloon and all over the brochures beckoning the children to
come for a ride.
Gigantica needs protection when Colorado's
extreme climate shows its face. A house built of glass will be the centerpiece
of the park. The glass will allow for Gigantica to be on display even
in the case of strong winds, the occasional hailstorm and other inclimate
weather. The backdrop to evening concerts and reception parties, the
house will be a one of kind showpiece. A smart winch and pulley system
will move the balloon in and out of its domain.

The structure of the park will be functional
in its design to help protect the Giant from winds. A grand entrance
will welcome visitors to set the stage for an extraordinary experience.
Concave and circular in shape, the park and its surrounding structures
will protect the balloon from any sudden strong winds by disrupting
the flow of air around the area. The design of the facility will form
a natural amphitheatre lending itself to concerts and theatrical performances.
A walking path around the perimeter full of mascot prints (What does
a whale walk like?) will lead guests through the playgrounds, sculpture
gardens and museum. All facets including the art will be kinetic to
help bring the facility alive. The form and function of "Aerostat
Park" is take visitors away from it all.
nightclub & restaurant
The restaurant called Helium will have
its own entrance on the property. The building will have an outside
patio/ dance floor area and glass roofed dining hall. A medium priced
facility so all can enjoy. Casual dining during the day, Helium can
be transformed into a conference facility and a nightclub after dark.
For unique occasions, a specially designed
tented system supported by the balloon is being designed. The tent will
not be 100% waterproof but will provide ample shade and protection from
the elements. The following set of drawings show both the inside and
the outside of the park with the tenting system in place:
