An Orlando developer wants to build an amusement park at Myrtle Beach, and is submitting plans to the local planning commission to have the land rezoned.

I would hope that it would be something different and more than the Pavilion and Family Kingdom. I like them both because they are small and have lots to offer. Hopefully the Pavilion won't be moved, but that's a whole nother story. I'd really like to se a larger Theme Park built in the area, as there is plenty of places to try this down there, something with larger coasters, and more flats.

Man, that'd be great. I'm always at Myrtle Beach in the summer time, and my mom rarely ever lets me go to MBP because she thinks i'm wasting my money on only one ride. This could be the one that spices up my vacation....

Before hoping anything, my first hope is that this actually happens, since over the past years there have been many failed attempts to build an amusement park in that location.

My family makes an annual trip to MB, and this really would be nice as there are no great roller coasters within a hundred miles. I know the land is a little pricey down there, but you'd think that a major amusement park could turn in quite a bit of revenue because it would be the largest attraction in a major tourist location. I don't understand why it hasn't been done yet.

This would be incredible. Where I live, the closest parks to me other than the Pavilion are 4 hours away (Carowinds and Kings Dominion). It'd be great to have a major theme park less than 2 hours away from me.
