The vacation rental can sleep up to 54 people making it the perfect getaway location for a family reunion.
Andrew Greenstein, the owner and designer of the property, told FOX 35 News the viral success of the home’s similar predecessor Great Escape Lakeside, inspired them to build Parkside, which opened in early 2019. Greenstein said people often fly to Central Florida just to stay at their homes.
"They report that they don’t even usually go to any theme parks – they select our area just for the house," Greenstein said in a statement.
Greenstein said he and his family always tossed around the idea of designing a super fun game house.
As his children approached their teenage years, Greenstein he wanted them to see and learn "that dreams are meant to be fulfilled" and that they can "achieve any dream."
The Great Escape Parkside is almost sold out for the year.
