Indoor amusement park being built in Illinois?

Wednesday, July 20, 2005 11:05 PM
Was reading a journalists story of him and his son visiting the 2 new waterparks in Illinois being Hurricane Harbor at SFGAm and Grand Bear Lodge indoor waterpark and resort.

Story can be found here.

What caught my eye was the statement made by this journalist. He is speaking of the amusement park being right next to Grand Bear:

"What's coming? Ground soon will be broken for an indoor amusement park near the lodge. The building will be five stories high and will have 30,000 square feet, with room for carnival games and 10 rides."

Has anyone heard anything about this? I know I am at a loss.

My guess is that its a Mis-Interpritation/ mistype on the newspapers behalf. The Great bear lodge in Sandusky Has a 5-STORY indoor WATERpark.

But they already have indoor waterpark. Hrmm

What does a waterpark in Sandusky have to do with a waterpark in Utica, Illinois?

Sorry, should have been cleare. I wasnt aware that Great Bear Lodge was already and indoor water park. When i did some research and saw that the Great Bear Lodge in Sandusky had a 5-story indoor waterpark (eerily familiar sounding to the rumored 5-story indoor amusement park) I thought that maybe the newspaper writer had meant to say they were getting a indoor waterpark instead of amusement park.

Then I saw they alreadyahd a indoor waterpark, and i knew i was way off.

There is a new water park in Utica, but I know of no plans for an amusement park by it.
