The World of Redwall is an amusement & water park, located within the extraterritorial jurisdiction of Austin, Texas, across from the Circuit of the Americas. It is owned and operated by Carwardine Parks, and was built from 2000 to 2003 (having been originally planned as "Carwardine's Texas Kingdom" before the Redwall license was procured), opening in 2004. It is based almost entirely on Brian Jacques' celebrated Redwall novel series.

History

The announcement of Carwardine's acquisition of the Redwall license back in 2000 was met with skepticism from the roller coaster community, who assumed Carwardine was trying to "cash in on rumors that Warner Bros. was wanting to add Harry Potter to theme parks", but after the success of Redwall: Fight for Victory at Boblo Island, Brian Jacques convinced Carwardine to make a full-on Redwall theme park.

In October 2000, construction of The World of Redwall began in Austin, Texas on the site of a former Montgomery Ward distribution center. The cancelled Carwardine's Texas Kingdom concept had some of the ideas of it reused for The World of Redwall.

In 2001, the park was officially announced with a lot of details at the years FairCon, more details were announced at IAAPA.

On June 1, 2004, The World of Redwall, which cost an estimated $340 million to build, opened with 520 guests welcomed on day one, and an initial workforce of 240 employees.

In August 2006, carwardineparks.com announced a waterpark was coming to the resort. Later, during IAAPA 2006, the name and more details were revealed.
