After three decades, the Luna Luna theme park is returning, thanks to an investment from Drake. 

According to several media publications, Drake has invested a whopping $100-million to ensure the park gets back up and running. 

According to New York Times, the historical theme park was designed by numerous famous 20th century artists. 

The park was designed to be a “bridge between the so-called avant-garde – the artists who were a little snobbish sometimes and didn’t connect with the masses – and the so-called normal people”.

Drake was moved by the history behind the park, which was designed in 1987 and shut down the same year. According to Design Boom, a change of ownership, litigation, and several lawsuits resulted in the park being shut down. 

It originally featured flying sculptures, circuses, and fire spectacles. 

“When I first heard about Luna Luna I was blown away," he told New York Times. 

The reimagined theme park will showcase work from old and new artists, according to the theme park's YouTube video description. 

It will be the first traveling art carnival that has rides and other fairground attractions.
