Barbie is having a renaissance at the moment.

There's a brand new film starring Margot Robbie out next month – and an exciting new theme park is coming soon too.

The Mattel Adventure Park is currently under construction and it’s hoped that it will open in Glendale, Arizona, in the United States, next year.

Mattel – the toy company behind Barbie – said the park should feature rides and entertainment based around out favourite childhood Mattel toys. These could include Hot Wheels, Thomas & Friends and, of course, the Barbie beach house.

As Arizona is known for being scorching hot, the park will include lots of indoor spaces with air conditioning.

Plus, Theme Park Tourist claims it is set to have restaurants, shots, a large swimmable lagoon and even white sand beaches.

A hot air ballon, wedding venue, theatre, hotel and concert space are also possible additions.

Of course, there will be rollercoasters – which you can see being built already on the park’s construction cam.

Plus, a Thomas & Friends indoor theme park featuring the first life-sized Thomas the Tank Engine electric passenger train is said to be part of the park too.

Barbie will also join guests on a flying journey is a new theatre adventure, reports claim. Her rooftop beach bar lets holidaymakers enjoy pink drinks and sweet and savoury snacks too.

The park is perfect for those who have recently seen the Barbie movie and want to step into the characters lives.

They can enjoy everything pink and sparkly at the park – and even step inside your own Barbie doll box for incredible Instagram snaps and hop on board the Barbie bus.

The Mattel Adventure Park website states: "Step into the action-packed world of Mattel Adventure Park, the only place where you can get behind the wheel of a lightning-fast Hot Wheels go kart, join Thomas & Friends on a treasure hunt journey and enjoy a signature pink beverage on the third story rooftop of The Barbie Beach House.

"From rides and attractions that appeal to the tiniest of tots, to a double-looping launch coaster designed for speed, to a flying theater adventure that shoots for the stars – Mattel Adventure Park is built to delight guests of all ages.

"Our unique indoor/outdoor design keeps your family cool and comfortable on even the hottest Arizona day with acres of air-conditioned space for your enjoyment, our stunningly themed party zones set the stage for the ultimate Barbie, Hot Wheels, or Thomas & Friends birthday party experience."

The park isn't the only exciting Barbie-themed place to go if you're looking for a doll-tastic holiday.

Last year, we discovered a Barbie dream house for rent by the hour.

It has its own gym, pool, basketball area and incredible Barbie decor which mega fans can live out the character's most iconic moments.

Giggster, a website which offers up spaces for film makers to rent, gave fans the chance to hire an iconic Barbie-themed house in Santa Monica, California.

The stunning property is covered in Barbie-style furnishings like bright pink sofas, orange flower pattern rugs, a Barbie surf board and flower wall decals.
