For Dude Perfect (American comedy group) superfans, it may be the equivalent of Disney World.

‘Variety’ stated that the five-member comedy and sports YouTube creators – who have a massive following of more than 58 million subscribers on the platform – are planning a new Dude Perfect headquarters and “family-friendly” entertainment destination.

Dude Perfect is an American sports and comedy group headquartered in Frisco, Texas, US. The group consists of Tyler ‘TT’ Toney, twins Cory and Coby Cotton, Garrett ‘Purple Hoser’ Hilbert, and Cody ‘Tall Guy’ Jones, all of whom are former college roommates at the Texas A&M University.

The Walt Disney World Resort, also called Walt Disney World or simply Disney World, is an entertainment resort complex in Bay Lake and Lake Buena Vista, Florida, United States, near the Cities of Orlando and Kissimmee.

‘Variety’ further stated that the new three-story HQ building will feature a 330-foot “trick-shot tower,” a Dude Perfect museum, mini golf, a merchandise store, restaurants, and two acres of outdoor space. The facility could cost as much as $100 million to build, the group informed.

Currently, there’s no ETA on when Dude Perfect-land may open – or even where it will be located. They’re hoping it will be in North Texas but are pitching the project to several different Cities, including Los Angeles and Atlanta.

Dude Perfect has been working for about a year with the San Antonio architecture firm Overland Partners on the project. The venue is designed “to manifest their digital brand into a physical destination designed to excite and engage visitors and fans”, according to the company.

Overland says in the description of the project, “The dynamic 330-foot canted tower projects from the site as a vertical expression of the brand known for their impossible shots. Inside, visitors will get to try their hand at the impossible shot as they ascend through a series of floors leading up to the top of the tower, surrounded by the City views. Encapsulated by the sweeping fabric structure, the iconic tower will be a focal beacon of Dude Perfect.”

The five Dude Perfect dudes – Tyler Toney, Cody Jones, Garrett Hilbert, and twins Coby and Cory Cotton – are based today in Frisco, Texas. The group posted their first trick-shot video in 2009 and their channel has generated nearly 15 billion views to date. Dude Perfect also has a faith-based mission – “We’re about giving back, spreading joy and glorifying Jesus Christ,” they say on their website.
