Puy du Fou is set to enter the US attractions market with its iconic, immersive themed visitor experience, after securing a partnership with the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indian (ECBI).

The EBCI Tribal Council has approved plans to provide US$75m worth of funding for phase 1 of The 407: Gateway to Adventure project in Sevierville, Tennessee.

The Puy du Fou element will be a major part of the 200-acre development, located at the entrance of the Smoky Mountains.

According to ECBI, the US' first Puy dy Fou will be a fully immersive walk-through show inspired by an "authentic and heartbreaking Cherokee story" of their heroism in World War 1.

Nicolas de Villiers, chairman and artistic director of Puy du Fou, said: "This project in Tennessee, developed together with the EBCI means a lot for us: it will initiate our presence on the American soil where there are so many great stories to tell.

"As lovers of history and cultural roots, we are proud and honoured to partner with the EBCI Tribe to achieve this goal."

As well as Puy du Fou, The 407: Gateway to Adventure project will feature the world’s largest Buc-ee’s Family Travel Center, as well as shops, restaurants, other themed experiences, parks and hotels.
