Florida still has room for smaller attractions

Posted Monday, June 14, 2004 10:22 AM | Contributed by Jeff

There are a surprising number of successful small attractions in Central Florida. One expert says there's still plenty of room for these businesses that attract fewer than 100,000 people a year, especially if they're not close to the bigger parks.

rollergator's avatar Funny how the article mentions Cypress as "closed", but mentions nothing of its re-opening under Kent Buescher...almost as though the reporter wasn't aware of it...;)

I'm surprised this article didn't mention more about Gatorland. This is THEE hidden gem of Orlando. Who doesn't like to see alligators jump out of the water to eat chickens on a string?

Is Miracle Strip in Panama City closed already???

rollergator's avatar Miracle Strip has ALL of their rides listed for sale, and I believe they are ceasing operations permanently on Labor Day weekend...

I am hopeful Starliner will be sold, as it was kept in *immaculate*condition when we were there. The dark ride was pretty cool and should go elsewhere...

On a semi-related note, since Cypress has announced the *delayed* opening date, I imagine they'll have a month or two to get things ready for the Holiday season (when there's a sizable chunk of out-of-state tourist activity), and then make a strong push for LOCALS until Spring Brak time...
