BN Living Sweetspot: Amazing Father builds Theme Park for Special-needs Daughter | WATCH - BellaNaijaAll the feels! A father Gordon Hartman has built a $35m theme park for his special-needs daughter.

He had watched his then-12-year-old daughter who is on the autism spectrum have trouble making friends at a family vacation.

The incident led him to search for a place where his daughter could meet people who knew how to interact with her.

When he found none, he decided to build one himself – Morgan’s Wonderland, where people with or without disabilities can play together.

Admission in the theme park is free for people with physical or mental disabilities.

    God bless him immensely and may God heal his Daughter and every sick child

    This is what Walt Disney should have done a long time ago after all the billions they collect each year. But till this day they never did.

    I don’t have a sick child but this warms my heart. I have no doubt it’ll be very successful and well patronised

    And then you wonder why God always bless rich white people . It’s cos they think of others before themselves and that’s why they are blessed and their wealth is passed on from generation to generation.

    Can u a Naija billionaire giving back like this. Building a theme park for sick children of Naija. Never

      Amen to your prayers.

      However, I disagree on your stance that Walt Disney should have towed a similar path as the man being celebrated here. Venturing into a business is primarily for profit making via creation of value. I’m pretty certain many people/children who have been to a number of Walt Disney’s creation would be happy to the fees in exchange for the excitement and thrills they benefit. To discount the investment and creativity of men like Walt Disney is unfair to the risks and efforts he put into his creation.

      And many Nigerian billionaire’s also give back. Perhaps, not as much as the whites, but they still do!

      @ Felinda, I totally agree with you but autism is not a “sickness”.
